Movie Review: Unfriended: Dark Web 'Predictable and generic'

The Accountant Sequel On It's Way

Of the films that managed to make a profit last year, we weren't expecting that Ben Affleck-starring crime thriller The Accountant would be one to spawn a sequel. Warner Bros. clearly thinks differently, and the studio is in the midst of re-assembling the actor plus director Gavin O'Connor and other filmmakers to put together a second outing.

Writer Bill Dubuque and producers Lynette Howell Taylor and Mark Williams are all working out deals now to return for a follow-up about Affleck's Christian Wolff, a forensic accountant with a very dark side. A high-functioning autistic, he's able figure out financial mysteries and works for criminal organisations to keep their shady moneymaking out of government clutches. But when a new client puts him in danger and firmly in the crosshairs of the Treasury Department, he shows off another, more violent side...

The plot for the film also saw – spoiler alert for those who didn't watch it – Christian's brother Brax (Jon Bernthal) coming out of the woodwork and proving just as skilled. Perhaps he'll have even more to do this time around?

There's no schedule for this one yet, as all involved are only just figuring out their contracts and have yet to start working on story beats. The first person to make a gag about "they made the numbers work" will be forced to fill out tax forms for hours with only an abacus and an angry goose for help.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.
