Marina Antunes [Cathode Ray Mission 08.08.20] drama mystery

If you haven't already watched "Utopia," you have to hit pause on everything else you're watching and get on that right this second. It's weird and creepy, and conspiracy-laden and just one of the best things I've ever seen on TV. It remains to be seen whether Gillian Flynn's re-imagining will be any good but that's beside the point. [Continue reading]

David House [Celluloid 08.07.20] horror comedy

As they get ready to load their gear into their van the 'repo men' show up and scoot it away. Of course, our desperate trio is basically penniless. That's when they... [Continue reading]

Ridley Scott is a busy guy. In addition to producing and executive producing a load of upcoming content, he's also keeping busy with directing everything from shorts to commercials and this year, he's tackling something else: TV. [Continue reading (3 comments)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.06.20] horror drama

While I can appreciate the (mad) genius of Charlie Kaufman, I also find much of his work to be dense and mostly inaccessible. His mind certainly works in a unique way and frankly, most of the time the stories simply don't strike for me but that's definitely not the case with his latest I'm Thinking of Ending Things. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.24.20] horror comedy

On paper, a movie about a ride-share, social media-obsessed man trying to become internet famous is completely uninteresting and then I watched the trailer for Eugene Kotlyarenko's Spree and I stand corrected: this could actually be fun. [Continue reading]

Simon Read [Celluloid 07.23.20] horror thriller

The first thing to say about The Rental is that it looks impressive. It's often a concern when an actor turns their hand to film-making that they'll botch it and turn out something slapdash or second-rate, but it must be said that Franco has a good eye for composition and, along with his cinematographer Christian Sprenger, has crafted a fine looking film with solid ...

Amy knows she's going to die tomorrow and as she tells people that this is her fate, they start to think they too will die tomorrow. Is this all just a state of mind or is there some larger-than-life apocalyptic power at play that will somehow kill you once the thought of death enters your mind? The answers will, hopefully, be provided in She Dies Tomorrow. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

David House [Celluloid 06.24.20] documentary

We start with a look at the "randy teenager films." Fast Times At Ridgemont High and Valley Girl (both directed by women) lead off with stories about trying to get laid or falling in love. They're full of energy and succeed for many reasons, not least of all the compelling breakout performances of young Sean Penn's perpetually stoned surfer dude, and Nicolas Cage's ...
