The Hollywood Foreign Press Association held its grants banquet in Beverly Hills last night and there were some big names who showed up in the name of charity but with the side benefit (or maybe main benefit) of Golden Globes.

Here’s a surprise—I really like Nerve! The trailer made this movie look dumb as sh*t, and it IS dumb, but it’s also really fun and actually pretty thrilling. Based on a novel by Jeanne Ryan (adapted by Jessica Sharzer, Speak), and directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (of Catfish fame), Nerve is a fast, fairly slick techno-thriller with a pair of genuinely charming leads in Emma Roberts Full Story

A few months ago there was a report that Rogue One, the Star Wars spin-off, was undergoing weeks of additional photography, and that the brass at Disney were in a “panic” over an initial cut of the movie not testing well.

Judging from the reviews of Suicide Squad – Sarah’s review was posted earlier today – Warner Bros still can’t figure out how to get the DC Universe right. It has however done a great job building the world of Harry Potter. Full Story

Where to start, where to start. Well, I guess we can start with the good stuff. The Good Stuff Suicide Squad is not as flat-out awful as Superhero Face Punch That movie is a dour, grinding slog, and Suicide Squad has approximately twenty fun minutes in its two hour run time. Full Story

A while back there was an announcement that there would be a remake of Splash, the 1984 mermaid-themed rom-com that convinced a generation that if we just spent enough time in the tub we, too, would turn into a mermaid like Madison. The announcement of a Splash remake felt as inevitable as it was unnecessary, since we’re going all-in on this “remaking everything from the 1980s, for better or worse” trend. Full Story
