Desiree Ahkavan’s new film, The Miseducation of Cameron Post hits theaters this week after both winning the Grand Jury prize for drama at Sundance Film Fest and screening at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year.

Martin Freeman (Black Panther, Ghost Stories) speaks about Netflix’s new zombie film, Cargo including some of his own thoughts on the supernatural: ” Once you hear something that goes bump or bang and you start making up your own narrative for it. And I’ve been rooted to the spot a few times on my stairs thinking ‘is that a ghost or is it a burglar?’ And fortunately it was neither.”
The Damned, easily the greatest surviving British punk band, bar none – are back with their first new album in a decade titled “Evil Spirits”.
Fans of Kevin Smith’s View Askew Universe may be quite familiar with Zak Knutson. The co-writer and director of the new comedy “Supercon” worked for a decade for Smith, often producing and directing Smith’s independent video projects. To honor his friend, he named Seth Rogen’s character “Zack” in “Zack and Miri Make a Porno.”

At age 50, she threw her hat in the ring of stand-up comedy and is quickly climbing the ladder of funny. She recently achieved her dream of performing before a packed house on the main stage of the Washington D.C. IMPROV and she killed!
You may have seen comedian Eric Schwartz in one of his many appearances on Showtime, “The Tonight Show,” BET or his HULU special “Surrender to the Blender.” If you haven’t, get over to YouTube because you’re missing one funny man.
Dave Wyndorf is the lead vocalist and guitarist for the rock group Monster Magnet. The groups latest album (Their first in five years) titled “Mind Fucker” was released on March 23rd.
After almost three decades working behind the scenes on other people’s films, Susan Walter has finally gotten to sit in the big chair. As writer and director of the new film “All I Wish,” she called the shots and achieved a dream.
A beautiful and unique entry into the western genre that goes in unexpected directions and features a standout performance from John C Reilly.
The calendar says September, but “The House with a Clock in its Walls” brings Halloween early for those with a spooky bone in their body
The ending comes across as a little too far-fetched but still pretty well thought out. But be warned, make sure you bring your Kleenex with you, because “Life Itself” makes “Manchester by the Sea” look like the second coming of “Airplane!”
Beautifully done and packs the magic that was brought from the stage performance.
Though it slows down when it should be ramping up, Lizzie is a tense, simmering drama lead by the bond between Chloe Sevigny and Kristen Stewart. A novel take on Lizzie Borden’s infamous case.
I had a real fun time while watching “The Predator,” but as I think about it in hindsight, I’m finding it troublingly easy to nitpick it to death
A carefully crafted but glacially slow paced period drama where the “big” bloody moments are few and far between. The talented cast languishes in beautiful atmosphere and effective sound design that amounts to a pile of supernatural McGuffins.
Turtletaub has crafted an evenly-paced work of cinema with subdued colors throughout. The exceptions are often the puzzles themselves when color is emphasized. He also draws out an excellent performance from Macdonald, which could be the best she has delivered.
A fun combination of live-action and puppets, “The Happytime Murders” is an outrageously raunchy look at what life may have been like on a certain “Street” if that show had taken place in the worse part of the worse town ever. In the world of “Happytime” humans and puppets co-exist, though the puppets are often horribly treated. Call it “Apuppethied.”
All in all, “Crazy Rich Asians” is a great date flick for any couple of any age, but don’t expect go into expecting to see something that truly separates itself from general, romantic comedy fair.
“Alpha” feels like a mix of unnecessary studio meddling and dog-lover peddling.
Graizer’s story is nothing extraordinarily original, yet he inserts enough small twists in it to make it passably interesting. The relationship between the two men is poorly developed in the beginning, which makes it difficult to become invested in the story.
Powerful and pertinent, “Blackkklansman” is a film that deals with both the past and the present. Director Lee and co-writers Kevin Willmott, Charlie Wachtel and David Rabinowitz have created a world that anyone over 21 will recognize. There is humor but then there is horror. Not violent horror, but the horror at the spoken word. Can people truly be this vile? Sadly, yes.
Director Turtletaub has directed four films since 2004, three of them starring Nicolas Cage, the master of over-emoting. He would have made a fine substitute to Statham, who has proven himself in other films. The slow parts between shark appearances start to add up, and the film feels every bit of its almost 2-hour run time.
“Three Identical Strangers” is the best documentary thus far in 2018 and one of the best overall films of the year. The well-deserved recipient of a U.S. Documentary Special Jury Prize for storytelling at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, “Strangers” is a compelling work that is thoughtful, compelling, moving and leaves a lasting impression for many moons after the credits have faded to black.
The writers of “The Darkest Minds” rely on the tired tropes of being yourself and the generalization of fighting the good fight
