The Sundance Film Festival begins this tomorrow, which means we’re officially eyeballing movies for the 2017 award season. As always, narrowing this down to just ten movies was a son of a bitch. There are a lot of interesting and good-looking movies at Sundance this year, but here are a few that are worth keeping an eye on for one reason or another. Full Story

Wonder Woman is being done right, maybe

While Suicide Squad got the big flashy trailer premiere during the televised DC Comics special last night, for me the big draw was seeing the first footage from Wonder Woman, which is filming now. It’s not much, just about eighty seconds including interstitials with Kevin Smith and comic book writer Geoff Johns, but we get to see Gal Gadot in action as Wonder Woman, including her super-kicking some dude in the face, and riding a horse and maybe cutting a guy’s head off. Full Story

Someone once described the plot of Suicide Squad to me and I said, “So it’s Guardians of the Galaxy.” And they replied, “No, it’s about the rogues’ gallery! They’re bad guys! Law breakers! And they team up to—f*ck it’s Guardians of the Galaxy.” But then Squad got overhauled, and I thought maybe they moved it away from that direction, and the first trailer Full Story

I opened yesterday’s blog with Zac Efron. Zac decided to celebrate Martin Luther King Day by connecting the holiday to having amassed 10 million followers. And he threw in some emoji blackface just for sh-ts and giggles. Zac has since removed the post. But the internet is forever. So here, why don’t we all enjoy his dumbassness again:  Full Story

Was watching TV the other night and saw the trailer for How To Be Single, starring Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Leslie Mann, and Alison Brie. This is what I’ve been able to put together from the preview: Dakota just broke up and her friend, Rebel, is encouraging her to thrive at being single. Full Story

Most reviews get headlined by a starring actor, but when it comes to Michael Bay movies, Michael Bay is the star. The subtext of every Michael Bay movie is that if he wasn’t a director he would undoubtedly be the kind of black ops badass all his movies are about. (Except for Pain & Gain, which is not about black ops badasses and is also his worst movie Full Story

Orlando Bloom presented at the Critics’ Choice Awards last night. He also presented at the Globes last weekend. It’s been a long time since we cared about Orlando Bloom for the work of Orlando Bloom, hasn’t it? Orlando Bloom shows up here when he slaps at Justin Bieber. Or when he may or may not be hooking up with Selena Gomez. Full Story

Ice Cube and Kevin Hart in Ride Along 2

I had two films to get through this weekend, 13 Hours and Ride Along 2, and I saved Ride Along 2 for last, thinking it, as a light-hearted comedy, would rinse out whatever taste 13 Hours left in my mouth, but then I saw Ride Along 2 and proceeded to not laugh even once. Not once. Which is unusual, because Kevin Hart can usually make me laugh. Full Story
