Netflix's 'Bright' Featurette Ward & Jakoby

IDIOCRACY Returns To Theaters

ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE AND ART HOUSE CONVERGENCE GOT WHAT AMERICA CRAVES.

Reunion of Cast & Filmmakers to Mark the 10th Anniversary of IDIOCRACY with Screenings Nationwide, Worldwide Livestream Q&A and Voter Registration Drive

Ten years ago, satirist Mike Judge told of an impossible future in which our collective intelligence had dropped so low it threatened to destroy the world. In this future, America was run by a corrupt, sociopathic former pro-wrestler with severe anger management issues, and the most popular entertainment in the land was a YouTube-esque video playlist called "Ow My Balls."

Flash forward to today. We are approaching the end of the most bizarre, absurdist presidential race in U.S. history. Over the past months, thousands have questioned in social media whether IDIOCRACY was actually a documentary. Mike Judge's sadly prescient film has transcended its cult classic status to become a vibrant and essential facet of this election conversation.

Movie Review: #TheMagnificentSeven

The Magnificent Seven is the best film in months. Thank the western movie gods.
Review by Matt Cummings
Director Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven is perhaps a mirror of its time: a restless, fun, but ultimately pulpy action flick with a tad more substance than most brainless fare. And yet, it's so much fun, so funny, and never boring that any problems I (or it appears every other American critic) have with it are easily erased.

After witnessing unimaginable loss by the evil robber baron Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), a hardworking town seeks revenge and righteousness in the form of seven antiheroes, each with their own checkered past. There's the bounty hunter leader Chisolm (Denzel Washington), the card-playing womanizer Faraday (Chris Pratt), Chisolm's sniper buddy Goodnight (Ethan Hawke) and assassin/friend Billy (Byung-hun Lee), a wanted felon (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and the aging hunter Horne (Vincent D'Onofrio). As the widow Emma (Haley Bennett) returns…

Movie Review: #Storks

Storks exceeds in cuteness but poops its diapers with a poor plot.
Review by Matt Cummings
We've witnessed a 2016 animated slate that's included the very good (Kubo and the Two Strings), the meh (Zoopotpia), and the truly awful (Norm of the North). For early Fall's Storks, we get something in the middle, filled with heartening moments, but disturbing in its overall premise.

In a world where storks like Junior (voiced by Andy Samberg) used to bring babies to homes, times have changed. After a delivery goes wrong - leaving the human Tulip (Katie Crown) without a home - the storks decide to enter the package delivery business. Over eighteen years, the company led by Hunter (Kelsey Grammer) has become a success, irregardless of Tulip's clumsy efforts to disrupt that. But for the human boy Nate (Anton Starkman), his desire for a brother leads him to write a letter to those very same storks, unaware of the company's new 'vision.' When Tulip accidentally sta…

#HANDMAIDEN director Park Chan-wook Tonight TUNE IN FACEBOOK LIVE

From PARK Chan-wook, the celebrated director of OLDBOY, LADY VENGEANCE, THIRST and STOKER, comes a ravishing new crime drama inspired by the novel ‘FINGERSMITH’ by British author Sarah Waters. Having transposed the story to 1930s-era colonial Korea and Japan, Park presents a gripping and sensual tale of a young Japanese Lady living on a secluded estate, and a Korean woman who is hired to serve as her new handmaiden, but who is secretly involved in a conman’s plot to defraud her of her large inheritance. Powered by remarkable performances from KIM Min-hee (RIGHT NOW, WRONG THEN) as Lady Hideko, HA Jung-woo (THE CHASER) as the conman who calls himself the Count and sensational debut actress KIM Tae-ri as the maid Sookee, THE HANDMAIDEN borrows the most dynamic elements of its source material and combines it with PARK Chan-wook’s singular vision and energy to create an unforgettable viewing experience.

TV Review: Lethal Weapon "Pilot"

I'm getting too bored for this shit.
Review by Brandon Wolfe
Though it was far from the first buddy movie, Lethal Weapon sort of perfected the form. So many of its particulars weren’t that remarkable on paper. The partners being separated by race, age and temperament, yet forging a bond all the same, all of this was old-hat even in 1987. The alchemy of Lethal Weapon’s success came down to the idiosyncrasies of its players. Shane Black’s witty, gritty script, Richard Donner’s expert craftsmanship and, above all, the incomparable chemistry between stars Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. Lethal Weapon was funny, brutal, exciting and heartwarming in equal measure, and gave us two characters whose camaraderie was so engaging that they became the gold standard all buddy-cop duos would forever be held to. The adventures of Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh continued on for three more films, the last of which arrived way back in 1998. The characters have laid dormant in the nearly two decades s…
