Chris Hemsworth leads a group of 12 soldiers as the first post-9/11 attack on the Taliban in Afganistan in this true(ish) story that surprised us more than a bit. I mean, sure, you got Michael Peña, Michael Shannon, William Fichtner, Saïd Taghmaoui, and strangely (that we wished we had seen more of him) Rob Riggle. And no question, this is Continue Reading...

A top-tier group of criminals. A no-rules broken cop and his loyal crew. The heist to end all heists. Sounds kinda like…Heat, right? But no Pacino or DeNiro here. You gotcher Gerard Butler as the dirty cop. You got (as far as the marketing campaign is concerned) 50 Cent as your big criminal, although in reality, the leader of that group is Continue Reading...

Liam Neeson tries one last go-round as an action star by teaming up again with director Jaume Collet-Serra (Non-Stop, Unknown) for this film that according to what Chris could get out of Ian, Lara, and JC, is basically two hours of Liam walking up and down a train going, “Is it him?”. Basically, Vera Farmiga offers this ordinary joe a Continue Reading...

Dear America: Paddington is amazeballs. Get with the program. Signed, the British. And us. Because the first Paddington movie in 2014 was one of the best movies that year that NO ONE in America bothered to see. And now, I suspect it’s going to be the same thing this year with the sequel. Which is a shame because both of Continue Reading...

Because you demanded it… Ok, because those troublesome folks from our Deliberations of Doom podcast demanded it, we got that crew together to review that weird urban fantasy/End of Watch mash-up movie on Netflix, Bright. You know, the one where Will Smith and Joel Edgerton (under heavy Orc makeup) are mismatched cops searching for an elf on the run with Continue Reading...

Ridley Scott’s new movie is based on the true story of the kidnapping of the grandson of the richest man in the world, J. Paul Getty. Problem was, the kidnappers didn’t realize that Getty was such an unbelievable skinflint that not only would he pay no money to said grandson’s family (they lived in poverty) but he wouldn’t pay the Continue Reading...

Jessica Chastain plays real-life underground poker queen Molly Bloom, as she recounts her story of being targeted by the FBI to her lawyer, Idris Elba. I mean, just the two of them in a movie together should be enough to get butts in seats, right? Just put them in everything. Hell, they’re going to be in IT 2 now, apparently. Continue Reading...
