The Han Solo Movie Is Titled SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY

Movie Review: #Popstar Never Stop Never Stopping

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping
Review by Matt Cummings
If This is Spinal Tap represents the pinnacle of the music mockumentary, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is a powerful lesson in what can happen when nearly all the same "right pieces" turn out something very different. Hilariously inventive throughout - but painfully slow when character development needs to take place - the comedy hits some interesting heights and nearly wins over our love.

For boy-band leader Connor Friel (AKA Connor4real, played by Andy Samberg), his first project Style Boyz was a sensation that needed to end. Started by his best friends Lawrence (Akiva Schaffer) and DJ Owen (Jorma Taccone), the act became an example of 90's excess silliness with tracks like Karate Guy and Donkey Roll. After a fight on stage, the band breaks up and Connor embarks upon a successful solo career, experiencing instant success. But it's not long before his second album crashes, leading the douche canoe t…

Fathom Event Recap: @KISSOnline Las Vegas Live Concert

Was a great performance and KISS lives up to their reputation.

Review by: Erika Ashley

On Wednesday May 25th, 2016 movie theaters across the nation hosted the KISS: Las Vegas Live Concert in a one night only viewing. This was my first time ever seeing KISS perform in theaters and just in general. Growing up my dad would listen to various 80s and 90s rock music and of course I would be exposed to the more popular songs from KISS that played on the radio. However, sitting in a theater, in the middle of the week, just after work-hours with about 20 others was certainly a different experience taking in KISS. Being an outsider amongst die-hard KISS fans was an interesting experience to say the least.


The film opens with KISS giving an introduction to the concert and discussing some insider knowledge about how the event was planned and executed. Listening to Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley openly and eagerly discuss their vision of designing their once in a lifetime residency performance in …

Dope's Rick Famuyiwa Will Direct The Flash Movie

Warner Bros. and DC's film version of The Flash seemed to be going full speed ahead back in October of last year, when Dark Shadows script man Seth Grahame-Smith stepped aboard to make it his directorial debut. But he left just as suddenly at the start of last month, leaving the film without a director. A replacement has now been found, with Dope's Rick Famuyiwa taking the job.

Famuyiwa will inherit Grahame-Smith's script for the movie, though he'll probably have some input into any changes moving forward. Ezra Miller, who was introduced as the speedster in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, is set to reprise the role in the first Justice League movie, which is now shooting.

Hiring Famuyiwa has the feeling of a positive step forward: while he hasn't worked on a big tentpole effects film, he's brought a lot of vision and heart to his indie work and hiring directors with his sort of CV hasn't hurt Marvel, which saw success with the likes of Joe and Anthony R…

Movie Review: The Lobster

The overall gist of this film was surprisingly fascinating

Review by: Erika Ashley

A recently single David, is brought to “The Hotel” in order to find a mate because in the not too distant future, all single adults are required to find a partner and get married by order of the Government. He is given 45 days to couple-up or he will be forced to become an animal of his choosing and released in the wild. During his stay at The Hotel he struggles to find a willing partner and makes a few desperate attempts to find companionship before his final days are up. After a horribly failed attempt at finding love, David runs away to join a group of Loners living between the “The City” and The Hotel. Here finds a group he feels comfortable in but quickly the moods changes once what he was looking for all along stumbles into his life. David is then forced to do everything he can to keep his most prized possession.



Let’s start with the story line for this outrageously fascinating film. In an altern…

Movie Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

Sequel surprisingly not cowabungled.
Review by Brandon Wolfe
On average, I see somewhere in the neighborhood of 80-90 movies each year, and in the year of our Lord 2014, I did not see a single movie that I enjoyed less than the reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Produced by Michael Bay’s IP-graverobbing shingle Platinum Dunes, the film was an ugly, unfunny, soul-dismantling garbage fire. The story was chaotic nonsense, the action was so overly busy as to be numbing and, worst of all, the Turtles, an engaging band of brothers in every prior incarnation, were horrifically redesigned as ghastly monsters with zero charisma. The film wasn’t merely an affront to longtime TMNT fans, it was a cautionary tale for what happens when whiz-bang summer entertainment is produced at its most cynical and calculated.

The sequel, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, could have been a substantial improvement simply by aspiring to the level of being watchable, yet seemed far more likely…

INDIGNATION Poster & Trailer Starring Logan Lerman

Based on Philip Roth’s late novel, Indignation takes place in 1951, as Marcus Messner (Logan Lerman), a brilliant working class Jewish boy from Newark, New Jersey, travels on scholarship to a small, conservative college in Ohio, thus exempting him from being drafted into the Korean War. But once there, Marcus’s growing infatuation with his beautiful classmate Olivia Hutton (Sarah Gadon), and his clashes with the college’s imposing Dean, Hawes Caudwell (Tracy Letts), put his and his family’s best laid plans to the ultimate test.

Sicario Sequel Titled "Soldado"

The hazardous world of narcs, the FBI, cartels and the Mexican borders seems an unlikely starting point for a franchise, but then the same might have been said about the Italian mafia in 1970s New York. Whether Sicario does a Godfather and spawns a crime trilogy remains to be seen, but it does have a sequel – Soldado – and, according to Deadline, a director in Suburra’s Stefano Sollima

Yet to arrive on these shores, Suburra is a multi-strand Italian thriller replete with corruption, crime and gloss. It’s compelling stuff and, with strong work on the TV adaptation of Gomarra also to his name, marks Sollima out as a natural fit for the terrain.

Sicario, of course, married up Emily Blunt’s FBI agent, Josh Brolin’s shady CIA operative and Benicio Del Toro’s mysterious Alejandro Gillick in an uncomfortable alliance against a Mexican cartel. Principles, morality and their corrosion in the face of tonnes of guns, money and white powder are likely to figure strongly again as themes in Soldado…

Brie Larson In Talks To Play Captain Marvel

After winning the best actress Oscar for “Room,” Brie Larson has her sights on another marvelous role.

Sources tell Variety Larson is in early talks to play Captain Marvel, one of Marvel’s most popular female superheroes, in an upcoming standalone film. It’s unknown where negotiations stand, but sources have told Variety that Larson is their first choice, and that she’s leaning toward playing the part.

Marvel had no comment on the story.

No director is currently on board. Marvel, however, had always planned to have an actress lined up early, with the idea of possibly introducing her in one of its upcoming films before its “Captain Marvel” movie bows.

“Inside Out” scribe Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman are currently writing the script, which follows Carol Danvers, an air force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident. The resulting alteration imbues her with the super powers of strength, energy project and flight.

Kevin Feige is producing the pic.

Dwayne Johnson To Star In Doc Savage Film

If it seems like Dwayne Johnson is attached to a new film almost every other day, that's probably because he is. And he's a workaholic, who has probably lifted more weight today than many of us manage in a week. His latest announcement, though, confirms what had been rumored and talked about for a while: he's attached to star in Doc Savage for co-writer/director Shane Black.

The Iron Man 3 director has made no secret of the fact that he thinks Johnson is right for the lead in the film, and now Johnson has hit Instagram with a picture (see below) of Black and his co-writers Anthony Bagarozzi and Chuck Mondry sitting with Johnson and production partner Hiram Garcia to, in The Rock's words, "chop up creative and break story on this very cool project. Comic book fans around the world know that the cool thing about 'Doc' Savage is that he's the inspiration for Superman. First name Clark, called "Man of Bronze", retreats to his 'Fortress of So…

X-Men TV Spin-Off "Legion" Heading To FX

Now those damn mutants are everywhere. As if conquering cinemas wasn't enough, the franchise is en route to television in the eight-episode first season of Legion, which stars Dan Stevens of Downtown Abbey and The Guest.

The project, from Fargo’s Noah Hawley, focuses on Stevens' David Haller, who, from his teenage years, has had to deal with mental illness. In and out of hospitals over the years with a diagnosis of schizophrenia, he comes to realize that the visions he experiences and the voices in his head might actually be real. This, naturally, leads to adventures of the meta kind, though not necessarily via traditional superhero tropes. While the show had been commissioned by US cable network FX as a pilot, the result has impressed bosses enough to warrant series status.

Muses FX's Nick Grad, “We’ve come to expect excellence from Noah Hawley and with Legion he has delivered another major creative achievement. Just as he did in reimagining Fargo, he is bringing an enti…
