Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) must protect a young mutant, Russell (Julian Dennison), from a time-traveling soldier, Cable (Josh Brolin), who aims to kill the boy before he becomes a supervillain. There are a lot of jokes. more

Film

This silly serial-killer tale is the kind of watchable B-movie trash we don't get much of these days. Featuring David Tennant with a perm and unintentional hilarity, it's the best kind of bad movie. more

Film

After being repeatedly told that reviewers should "leave politics out of" criticism, it seems like a good time to explain why that can't really happen. more

Film

Alien celebrations, medieval monks, sci-fi savagery, crimes outside of time and space not associated with the Trump administration, and hope for a DC movie all in this month's column! more

Cutting Room

It all leads up to this: All the Marvel heroes fight an angry space raisin with a bedazzled MacGuffin. It's about 99% action and 1% emoting, with consequences so big, you may actually laugh at them. more

Film

Bruce Crawford's latest film event and a slew of awesome Film Streams offerings are all in this installment! more

Cutting Room

The Broken Lizard guys are back with diminishing returns! This time, they have to oversee a Canadian town that's being given back to America. So it's a ton of uninspired Canadian jokes and one memorable moment with Rob Lowe and a wiener. more

Film

Matt and Ryan talk about The Rock's Rampage, why it's good to see movies at home, why it's also good to see movies in theaters, and other nonsense. more

Film

This would-be B-movie takes too long to get to the part where a giant gorilla fights a giant wolf and a giant crocodile. Also, somebody buy The Rock one properly fitting shirt. more

Film

Monsters that hunt by sound brought about the apocalypse, as one family tries to survive by being very very quiet. It has all the tension of realizing in a traffic jam that you gambled wrong in not using the bathroom before you left. For 90 minutes. more

Film

Get ready to have your Studio Ghibli-ed, talk about sex and learn about funny ladies. Not all at the same time. more

Cutting Room

Wholly inadvertently, our use of postapocalyptic fiction has dulled (and continues to dull) our reactions to the very real planet murder we’re currently in the middle of carrying out. more

Film

Matt and Ryan talk about Ready Player One, taunt another published author, and give you recommendations that will probably (not) change your life. more

Film

In the near future, everyone spends their time in a virtual reality called the OASIS. Most are trying to solve a quest that involves extensive 1980s pop culture references. If nostalgia pornography is your thing, you're in for a treat. more

Film

When Josef Stalin croaks in gloriously undignified fashion, it sets off a panicked scramble to fill the void left by his murderous mustache. This hilarious, savage satire skewers all toxic, small men cruelly trying to be big boys. more

Film

Matt talks more about the cult he's developing. Ryan tries to discourage him. They both revel in the glory of Pacific Rim: Uprising. Listen up! more

Film

Surprisingly, this is a better version of a film in which giant robots punch slobbery monsters farted from the ocean's butt crack than the first one, which was directed by a guy who just won an Oscar. more

Film

Matt and Ryan talk about Thoroughbreds, which are murdery young women and not actual ponies. Also, we talk about ponies. more

Film

Two entitled young white teenagers, one a sociopath and the other just a spoiled princess, decide to kill one of their stepfathers. It's the good kind of quirky and a mild kind of insightful. more

Film

This loving, kind film is specifically aimed at an under-targeted audience. Most adults, however, will be uninspired by the tale of a young girl chasing her father across the universe with only the power of Oprah to help her. more
