Review: Hands of Stone

PLOT: The rollercoaster life of Panamanian boxer Roberto Duran includes rising up from the streets of Panama to become one of the greatest fighters of his time, his friendship with trainer Ray Arcel and his rivalry with American showboat Sugar Ray Leonard. REVIEW: Roberto Duran is such a dynamic, fascinating figure, it's hard to believe it took this long to bring his...

Review: The Sea of Trees

PLOT: A depressed American man travels to Japan's "Suicide Forest" on a quest to end it all. A chance meeting with another lost soul makes him rethink his decision, as well as ponder the events that led him there in the first place. REVIEW: THE SEA OF TREES is pretty to look at but tough to swallow; maybe because it's like trying to drink sap. Cloying in an...

We interview John Krasinski and Margo Martindale for The Hollars!

In John Krasinski 's second directorial effort, THE HOLLARS, Krasinski plays John Hollar, a struggling city-dweller who has to return to his small hometown when he learns his mother has a bran tumor; Margo Martindale plays said mother, a spirited woman who's worried about everyone in the family but herself. (In other words, the best kind of mom.) The two have effortless...

We interview Miles Teller about War Dogs, Fantastic Four & Granite Mountain!

Miles Teller 's new film, WAR DOGS, tells the so-crazy-its-true story of two dudes in their 20s who bid on military contracts during the Iraq war - and won them. Efraim Diveroli (played by Jonah Hill ) and David Packouz (Teller) were exploiting a little-known government initiative that made them millionaires. But, eventually, they got sloppy, made some illegal moves, and...

Review: Pete's Dragon

PLOT: An orphaned young boy discovers a dragon in the woods, which he quickly befriends. After some years pass, both are discovered by outsiders, and the friendship is tested as the boy is brought into civilization as the dragon is hunted by frightened townsfolk. REVIEW: PETE'S DRAGON is a disarmingly effective movie. I hesitate to use the term "children's...

Review: Hell or High Water

PLOT: Two brothers plan a string of bank robberies in order to pay off the mortgage on their family farm while a marshal on the verge of retirement tracks them down. REVIEW: HELL OR HIGH WATER tells the simplest, most predictable tale possible and manages to keep us riveted every step of the way. Two brothers rob banks, not exactly gracefully, while a gruff old lawman on the...

Review: Sausage Party

This review originally ran as part of our Comic-Con 2016 coverage PLOT: Various members of the supermarket food community, previously under the assumption that they go to paradise after they're chosen to leave the store, discover that what human "gods" have planned for them is certain doom. One sausage and one hot dog bun set out into the wilds of the market to...

David Ayer talks to us about Suicide Squad, DCEU, Joker, Superman and more!

It was about a year ago around this time that SUICIDE SQUAD was, as director David Ayer puts it, the "cool little brother" of 2016's big Warner Bros./DC slate. All eyes were on BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, and continued to be until it was released in March and met with a decidedly mixed overall reaction from the fanboy community. And while that film may be...

The JoBlo.com Crew parties at Comic-Con (Comic Con 2016)

As we wrap up yet another year of excellent Comic Con coverage, we naturally have to cap things off the way we always do: with pics of the JoBlo.com crew goin' bonkers! If you didn't already know it, we work really hard to bring you the best possible info out of SDCC, so it's only fitting that we play hard at the end of every day. Sifting through our images, it would appear as though we...

Best Art of the Con! (Comic Con 2016)

As we wrap up our coverage of Comic Con 2016 (and what coverage it was!), we mustn't forget one of the main reasons folks go to this massive convention to begin with: the art. When you walk the floor at SDCC, you're brought face to face with hundreds of unique pieces of art, some of it exemplary, some of it not so much, but all of it created with love. It's impossible to include everything...

Michael Biehn talks Aliens and Blanc-Biehn Productions (Comic Con 2016)

Michael Biehn is a legend to 80s and 90s kids like myself. ALIENS, THE TERMINATOR, THE ABYSS, TOMBSTONE, THE ROCK. I get to meet a lot of cool actors and actresses doing this gig, but it's not often you meet one who held such an integral role in your childhood; I can't tell you how many times I've heard Kyle Reese say, "Come with me if you want to live!" or Dwayne Hicks mutter, "Stay...

Aliens 30th Anniversary panel (Comic Con 2016)

Only a few days ago, James Cameron 's sci-fi horror classic ALIENS enjoyed its 30th Anniversary. So what better place to talk about and celebrate the film than at San Diego Comic-Con, where movie geeks reign supreme? A good chunk of the main cast was at the panel, as were Cameron and producer Gale Anne Hurd. While of course no major revelations were to be had, the hour-long panel was just...
