The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a wondrous achievement in film, the likes of which previously were only the stuff of a comic book lover’s dreams. Even with this incredible accomplishment in story telling, something was missing – an integral piece of the Marvel Universe that was long overdue for a reunion. Spider-Man: Homecoming marks the full debut of ol’ webhead in the MCU and it’s a joy to watch, while proving once again that nobody does Marvel better than Marvel Studios.
Kumail Nanjiani is one of the funnier names working in comedy, but yet many probably don’t recognize his face aside from his wonderfully dry character on HBO’s Silicon Valley. The show’s role is fitting since much of his early comedy career specialized in the “nerd” or “geek” realms of entertainment. Now with the somewhat autobiographical indie flick The Big Sick hitting theaters nationwide, Nanjiani is making the leap to a starring role in a possibly career-defining turn for his sweet (and sometimes bitter) story of love and family.
Premiering at the 2017 SXSW Film Festival ahead of its August release date, Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver nearly blew the roof off the Paramount Theater last night as the rowdy Austin, Texas audience reveled in the prolific director’s latest masterpiece. Part intricate heist film and part star-crossed romance, it’s the action-movie version of La La Land, a feel-good musical where the singing and dancing has been swapped out for car chases and shootouts, all set to the pulsing beat of an eclectic soundtrack.
After delivering a stunning and emotional sequel in 2014’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, director Matt Reeves returns to close out the series with a final chapter even more powerful and poignant than its predecessor. War for the Planet of the Apes is the most atypical summer tentpole in recent memory, a somber and melancholy rumination about the choices we make and the often painful task of living with the aftermath, told from the perspective of the most convincing digital creation ever committed to film.
When Gawker Media made the decision to post excerpts from a sex tape featuring iconic pro wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan, they couldn’t have anticipated that it would ultimately lead to financial ruin and the shuttering of their infamous blog. But in the aftermath of the multi-million dollar lawsuit came a startling revelation about a Silicon Valley figure pursuing a personal vendetta against Gawker by funding Hogan’s legal fees, and it’s this story that serves as the basis for Brian Knappenberger’s compelling documentary Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press.
The Bad Batch, written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night), isn’t your typical dystopian genre film. In fact, it’s really hard to pigeonhole the film into any one specific genre due to its fluid and constantly shifting nature.
An eerie mist descends from the hills causing chaos in a small town in Maine. Thirty-seven years after first being published, and a decade after creeping its way onto the big screen, an adaptation of Stephen King’s The Mist is getting the TV series treatment on Spike.
Transformers: The Last Knight is reportedly Michael Bay’s last go-round with the reimagined 80’s cartoon franchise and if so, the divisive director held nothing back, with no pyrotechnic unexploded in his unchained swan song. The film is the fifth in the widely popular international blockbuster franchise, presenting a lunatic’s rant of a movie that’s ambitious as it is a complete mess.
