Ryan Syrek

This surreal comedy is as terrifying as it is hilarious. Ostensibly about a telemarketer who rises through corporate ranks, this is actually a condemnation of countless levels of modern apathy and human cruelty. more

Film

Much like last time, this misadventure aims for comedy-action and sort-of glances off both components. Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and the Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) try to retrieve her mom from the "quantum realm" and fight lame, useless bad guys. more

Film

Count down the top 10 movie beverages of all time! Some of what's on the list will surprise, all of it will get you hammered if you drink the whole list. more

Film

A fundraiser to settle the Marvel vs DC debate once and for all? A new theater run by robots? The impending apocalypse? All covered in this installment of Cutting Room! more

Cutting Room

No Emily Blunt and lots more silly racial fear-mongering combines with a spin-in-place plot and truly ugly visuals to create a boring, stupid action movie that has absolutely no reason to exist. more

Film

A sequel that's all set-up for a potentially insane final chapter to a weird trilogy, this installment is utter nonsense and loud noises that culminates in a silly ending that could mean great and goofy things ahead for dino-terror. more

Film

This long-awaited sequel sees the superpowered family return to action to thwart the evil Screenslaver. It's a perfectly fine and fun follow-up that has little to say beyond sympathizing with stressed and tired moms and dads everywhere. more

Film

This is a meticulous, intricate examination of emotional trauma, a hyperbolic look at inherited mental illness and one of the most beautifully horrific films of all time. The last half hour will mess you up or make you laugh, so either way you win. more

Film

A perfect cast pulls off the perfect heist, albeit without being allowed to have quite as much fun onscreen as was permitted in other installments. If you don't enjoy watching these diamonds get boosted, you've lost the shine on your soul. more

Film

Martin Freeman does his best in a zombie movie about a father trying to find someone to watch his daughter forever. There are lots of themes about Australian Aboriginal peoples and environmentalism, but don't get your hopes too high. more

Film

Alex and Pete chat, PBS gets funded, you can get famous, and films catch fire all in this edition of Cutting Room! more

Cutting Room

A look at the numbers reveals that there are fewer women composers than in any other artistic field in cinema. Here's a look at the problem and some points of hope. more

Film

This swashbuckling space adventure has a killer cast and is a ton of fun...whenever it isn't bogged down by explaining tiny details not even the most die-hard fan would care about. A good time that could have been great fun. more

Film

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
