Review: The Adderall Diaries

PLOT: A celebrated author's memoir about his abusive dad comes under intense scrutiny when it's revealed he lied about certain aspects of his life, including the death of his very much alive father. REVIEW: THE ADDERALL DIARIES is an incredibly boring vanity project from James Franco that felt about two times longer than its relatively brief 87 minute running time....

Review: Criminal

PLOT: A murdered CIA agent's memories are transferred to the brain of a brutal psychopath in the hopes he'll be able to relay pertinent information to the dead man's superiors. When the convict escapes - with the CIA and international terrorists on his tail - he finds his previously pitiless nature changed by newfound feelings of empathy. REVIEW: Suspension of...

Review: The Jungle Book

PLOT: In the Indian jungle a young boy named Mowgli is raised by a pack of wolves and a protective panther. When a villainous tiger vows to kill him, Mowgli must flee into the unknown and find his own kind. REVIEW: Walking into Jon Favreau 's THE JUNGLE BOOK, I realized quite late that it had been perhaps two decades (at least) since I last saw Disney's animated...

Review: The Boss

PLOT: A famous media mogul is arrested for insider trading, her reputation and empire ruined. Years later, she comes crawling to her former assistant for help, and in the process ends up creating a new, albeit smaller, business that could end up being financially advantageous for them both. REVIEW: When it comes to Melissa McCarthy 's less than exquisite filmography, THE...

Interview: We talk to Jake Gyllenhaal and Judah Lewis about Demolition!

To say Jake Gyllenhaal is one of our finest working actors is surely understating things. From BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN to PRISONERS to NIGHTCRAWLER, he's firmly established himself as one of those thespians who's willing to go anywhere and do anything for his craft. Things are no different in DEMOLITION, in which he plays Davis Mitchell, an emotionally closed-off man who loses...

Review: Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

PLOT: Almost two years after the partial destruction of Metropolis, the world is pondering the pros and cons of having an all-powerful entity such as Superman around. In addition to the Senate committee investigating his exploits, Gotham's caped crusader Batman is keeping a close eye on the Man of Steel, determined to put a stop to him before the alien potentially turns against...

Review: The Bronze

PLOT: A bratty former Olympian who has refused to grow up and leave her small town suddenly becomes the coach of a new young gymnast who threatens to steal the thunder she's held on to for so long.  REVIEW: For about half of THE BRONZE's running time, you'll absolutely loathe Hope Greggory. And the movie wants it that way, too. Daring choice for a movie such...

Interview: Midnight Special's Michael Shannon, Kirsten Dunst & Joel Edgerton

Not unlike last week's 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE , Jeff Nichols ' MIDNIGHT SPECIAL is a sci-fi movie sure to divide many genre fans. Some will see it as lacking in big, splashy action sequences and/or scares, while others will dig its methodical pace and focus on character over spectacle. It's certainly not your typical studio fare (Warner Bros. will release on March 18th before expanding...

We interview Sacha Baron Cohen about The Brothers Grimsby and more!

Sacha Baron Cohen needs no introduction. The man behind some of the most iconic comedic characters in modern times - Ali G, Borat, Bruno - is in the next stage of his career, which includes crafting new storylines for new absurd personalities. His latest film is THE BROTHERS GRIMSBY which focuses on Nobby Butcher, the beer-guzzling, football-loving hooligan from the town of Grimsby...

Exclusive: Sacha Baron Cohen's The Lesbian to be a musical

Now that Ali G, Borat and Bruno are well behind him (except for perhaps the random award show appearance), Sacha Baron Cohen appears to be firmly in the business of creating brand new characters and narratives to shock us with. THE DICTATOR was met with mostly mixed reactions, but his forthcoming THE BROTHERS GRIMSBY is sure to be a love-it or hate-it experience. This movie shows you...

Review: Me Him Her

  PLOT: Cory ventures to L.A. to help a friend in crisis: recognizable TV star Brendan, who is gay but not willing to come out of the closet. Along the way he meets a lesbian who he becomes attracted to, and who becomes attracted to him.  REVIEW: Max Landis ' ME HIM HER is like a sitcom that somehow took a full season's worth of lame material and made itself...

We interview 10 Cloverfield Lane's Mary Elizabeth Winstead & more!

10 CLOVERFIELD LANE will be a fairly divisive film among sci-fi fans, I can guarantee you of that. I won't spoil what makes me think so, but like another recent J.J. Abrams -produced sci-fi yarn, this should have people arguing and debating for a while after its release. And that's not a bad thing at all, is it? Before the world gets a look at the film, I can offer you a...
