I saw The Boss this weekend and we need to have a come to Jesus about Melissa McCarthy. This is the second movie McCarthy made with her husband, Ben Falcone, the first being Tammy. They wrote and produced both movies, and Falcone directed both. Full Story

The last time we saw a Suicide Squad trailer, it left me a bit bemused. I wasn’t sure what to make of it, because it was, tonally, quite different from the first trailer. Well, the third trailer, premiered at the MTV Movie Awards, doubles-down on the relatively lighter tone of that second trailer, adding more classic rock songs to the trailer soundtrack, and showing off more humorous moments with the characters. Full Story

Star Wars: The Force Awakens won Best Movie of 2015 + Deadpool at the MTV Movie Awards last night, which is unsurprising. It’s a popularity contest and that was the biggest movie last year. JJ Abrams Full Story

Dwayne The Rock Johnson’s body isn’t what attracts me to him. That kind of brawn has never been my thing. What I like about The Rock is his sense of humour. He knows what you think of him. He doesn’t pretend to be anything else. Full Story

The Captain America: Civil War junket happened this weekend which means it was screened for press. Early reviews have been very, very strong. The comparisons to Batman v Superman have been inevitable. The Avengers are fighting each other, just like Batman and Superman fought each other. So it’s worthwhile to note that the Avengers reaction is coming from actual media and not just fanboys. Full Story

Richard Linklater’s Everybody Wants Some!!

Sarah Posted by Sarah at April 8, 2016 17:50:33 April 8, 2016 17:50:33

If I could ask Richard Linklater one question, it would be: Why two exclamation points? Not one, not three—two. That’s weirdly specific, and Linklater is a filmmaker of deliberate choices, so I’d like to know why two exclamation points? The curiously punctuated Everybody Wants Some!! is Linklater’s latest film, his follow-up to Boyhood and a “spiritual sequel” to Dazed and Confused. Full Story

Or Stars Hollow… is that what it’s called? I can hear Duana making sounds from wherever she is, getting ready to puff up and school me. Because, no, I haven’t started watching it yet, OK? I’m sorry. I was supposed to over the Christmas holidays but Making A Murderer happened and then I binged on Jessica Jones and Master Of None and a lot of horny books. Full Story

Rogue One …and Rey’s mom?

Sarah Posted by Sarah at April 7, 2016 15:32:10 April 7, 2016 15:32:10

The first trailer for Rogue One, the first “Star Wars Story” spin-off of the rebooted universe, is here and it’s pretty f*cking metal. From the piano breakdown of the Star Wars’ theme to the shots of the Death Star, Stormtroopers, AT-ATs, and those familiar orange flight suits, there’s plenty of recognizable Star Wars stuff to push the nostalgia button everyone is so hooked on these days. Full Story

Midnight Special has something in common with 10 Cloverfield Lane—you don’t want to know too much about this movie going in. The whole narrative is structured for discovery, and it unfolds with a real sense of wonder we don’t get to feel much at the movies anymore. Full Story
