The marketing suggested that Logan, director James Mangold's second Wolverine movie, might be in a different class than the rest and this time, the marketing didn't lie. [Continue reading (3 comments)]

It's always a little disconcerting when a movie kicks around the block for a few years before it finally sees the light of day. Sometimes its just logistics but in the case of horror movies, it seems that delay is usually connected with some degree of terribleness. That said, I'm not sure that's the case with The Devil's Candy. [Continue reading]

Refn has teamed with Amazon for a straight to series order of 10 episodes for a crime series which will explores various characters’ existential journeys from being killers to becoming samurai’s in the city of angels.

If you haven't seen director Ana Lily Amirpour's A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night it comes highly recommended. That said, who's up for steroids, cannibalism, and a desert post apocalyptic wasteland? It stars Keanu Reeves, Giovanni Ribisi, Diego Luna.. and let's throw Jim Carrey in there. You know something is going to be awesome when Ribisi is in it. [Continue reading]

When the first trailer for The Circle landed late last year, I didn't really get what the big deal was. It looked like a fairly straight forward thriller unfolding in the tech world but not being familiar with either Dave Eggers' novel or having read a long synopsis of the movie, that first trailer revealed very little of the story.

Writer/director Trey Edward Shults blew my socks off last year with Krisha. The intimate drama benefited from a spectacular performance from Krisha Fairchild in the titular role but Shults' approach to the storytelling - the movie features Krisha spending the holidays with family she hasn't seen or talked to in years, including her son - made for a movie that plays mo...

If the latest batch of winter TV releases is any indication, Canadian TV producers seem to be moving towards the British approach to TV production: shorter seasons, further spread apart. This certainly has its downside but there are so many advantages to this style of production that it's a bit surprising it hasn't become the norm for Canadian television sooner. [Continue reading]

When it premiered last year at Cannes, Olivier Assayas' Personal Shopper was not particularly well received though our correspondent called it "decidedly entertaining" while I loved it so much I added it to my list of recommended movies last year. [Continue reading]

Sloan's script pops with tough guy humor and heart while his team of bounty hunters each have their own unique personalities and subtle arcs. And once the story gets moving, Sesma manages to balance brutal action and character moments with a surprisingly light touch that elevates it from just another a dusty, macho shoot 'em up, to a film that punches way above its we...

Though the set-up for writer/director Ben Parker's feature film debut The Chamber feels overly convoluted, the central conceit of the movie - a group of people stuck in a slowly sinking submarine - has a whole lot going for it. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

You might recall that late last year, Legendary Entertainment picked up the rights to "Dune" from the Herbert family. At the time, it wasn't clear whether Legendary would be looking to adapt the material as a movie or a television series though we speculated that Chinese investors would likely be looking to get their hands on some sort of big franchise and "Dune" seem...

Watching the trailer for Anne Hamilton's feature film debut brought back memories of Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth, not in setting or story or perhaps even theme but in its approach to how a young girl deals with a traumatic event. [Continue reading]
