Reminder: We’re Getting Another Star Wars Movie in Only Five Months

It’s always been years. Three years between Star Wars movies. Sixteen years between trilogies. Then it shrank—it took 10 years to get The Force Awakens after Revenge of the Sith, and since then Star Wars movies have been a mere year apart. But now, for the first—and probably last—time ever, we’ll have two new Star Wars films in only six months. Read More >>

The Last Jedi Takes Star Wars to a Fantastic New Level

Days removed from seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I still can’t believe it’s a real movie. I can’t believe what writer-director Rian Johnson did: He took all of our preconceived notions of what a Star Wars movie is and evolved them. The movie is genuinely shocking at times—multiple times—but it also feels fully authentic to the Star Wars universe. And this is why The Last Jedi is so good, even if there are a few hiccups along the way. Read More >>

The Charismatic Cast of Jumanji Elevates an Otherwise Trivial Action Adventure

The formula of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sounds like it can’t miss. Put some big personalities in a gorgeous setting and have them tell funny jokes and perform a lot of action. When those big personalities are played by stars like Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black, the odds of success are even higher. Jumanji meets those expectations for sure, it just never exceeds them.

On Walt Disney’s Birthday, We’re Reminded of the Speech He Made at the Opening of Disneyland

On December 5, 1901, Walt Disney was born. And yes, the late mogul was a complicated man from another era, with many shitty traits about him. For the most part, though, what he brought to this world was magical and so far-reaching it’s hard to even fathom. Read More >>

Blade II Is An Important Guillermo Del Toro Movie That Does Not Hold Up At All

Blade II is not as good as you remember. That is, assuming you even liked it in the first place. Back in 2002, I saw the film in theatres and liked it so much I rushed out to buy the DVD when it was released. However, revisiting the early Guillermo del Toro film this week didn't bring back fond memories -- but it still may be as important a Guillermo del Toro movie as anything else he's done, right up to this week's The Shape of Water.

Margot Robbie Says She’s Working on Her Own Separate Harley Quinn Solo Movie

There’s no doubt Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn was the standout character in Suicide Squad. It’s why, since then, we’ve heard the character will not only be in Suicide Squad 2, but possibly a Gotham City Sirens movie as well as a Harley and Joker movie. But the actress is reportedly working on a fourth Harley movie that has nothing to do with any of those. Read More >>
