Sleepless

"Sleepless" is one of those movies that needed to be a lot better or a lot worse to make much of an impression. This story of a Las Vegas police officer trying to recover his kidnapped son from bad guys is frustratingly not-terrible....Show More Summary

The Bye Bye Man

Although I have no special inside knowledge regarding the creation of “The Bye Bye Man,” I can harbor a fairly strong guess as to how it came about. A group of ambitious filmmakers gathered together with the express purpose of creating...Show More Summary

Claire in Motion

You could program a great double feature with the two films directed so far by Annie J. Howell & Lisa Robinson. Their first movie, 2011's “Small, Beautifully Moving Parts” was a sunny SXSW selection about a pregnant woman/tech-geek trying to track down her estranged mother in order to get some answers about motherhood.

Ma

Celia Rowlson-Hall's feature film debut "Ma" doesn't fit into a neat category, or any category at all, for that matter. You could describe it as a meditation on the story of the Annunciation, told through dance and movement, although "meditation" isn't quite right either. Show More Summary

Son of Joseph

The story of theater and film artist Eugène Green sounds like that of a character made up by Umberto Eco or Gilbert Adair. Born in New York in the late 1940s, he decamped to Paris while still a young man. Once settled in Europe, he made...Show More Summary

The Crash

Aram Rappaport’s “The Crash” marks a very undistinguished convergence of two genres that have burgeoned in recent years: dark, brooding financial dramas reflecting fears unleashed by the 2008 economic recession, and thrillers that hinge on the spiraling perils of computers and related technologies.

Live by Night

Some mediocre movies just don’t make sense; you can never understand why they went into production in the first place. The script was clearly a mess when someone bought it, it was never going to be profitable, and no one involved had the skill to pull it off. Show More Summary

So here's the funny version of an event which thoroughly flipped my world upside down on Wednesday. Thank you, Colbert, for that brief moment of levity. Now let's get to the real issue that's weirdly comforting and unsettling at the...

The Appalling Last 24 Hours Of GOP Politics

It is not getting any better, folks. 1) Representative Jason Chaffetz of Utah -- who pulled his endorsement of Trump after the Access Hollywood pssy grabbing tape, only to re-endorse him later -- is now threatening an investigation against the...

Tomi Lahren Wants You to Know She Has Black Friends, is Really Proud of Herself

4 days agoFilm / Film Reviews : Pajiba

Conservative talk show host Tomi Lauren is physically incapable of saying aloud the words "black lives matter," although saying the words "black guns matter" is somehow mere child's play to her, but she is definitely, definitely not racist. And she...

Peter Thiel is Really, Really Confused

In an interview published in the New York Times on Wednesday, billionaire venture capitalist/"Trump's Tech Pal" Peter Thiel proved to the world that on top of lacking a functioning human heart and visible eyebrows, he is also lacking a grip...

Dwayne Johnson Says You're Welcome For This Deleted 'Moana' Scene

I'm going to share something with you right now that I'm not proud of and I hope you won't judge me too harshly. This is really tough, but I saw Moana around Christmastime and I loved it. I loved it...

That's Not... Honey, That's the Locker Room Not the Weight Room

Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian on E at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. Sometimes I think that we're making real progress with body positivity and then I see things like this and remember that there's still a long way to go....

If you were offended by the first look of Michael Jackson played by Joseph Fiennes, you're not alone. @TheMJCast i'm so incredibly offended by it, as i'm sure plenty of people are as well, and it honestly makes me want...

Obama's White House on Trump's Golden Showers Allegations: Deal With It (Basically)

Guess who doesn't have a whole lot of sympathy for allegations -- which may or may not be true, but have not been verified -- that Donny Trash paid prostitutes to urinate on a hotel bed slept on by the...

Monster Trucks

As a traditional narrative, or even as a kids' film, Monster Trucks fails on multiple levels. However, as a throwback to 90's children's fare, as well as a generally fun and kind-spirited time at the movies, it succeeds admirably.

STFU, Steve Harvey. Sincerely, People Who Aren't Garbage

4 days agoFilm / Film Reviews : Pajiba

Steve Harvey spent actual time and energy mocking Asian men on his show, specifically the idea that women would find them attractive. We presumably don't need to refute this with examples because you're not trash garbage humans (also, we already...

Would You Watch a Tim Burton 'Dumbo?' What If I Made it Interesting?

2016 was a huge year for Disney. If there was any doubt about the success of taking their animated favorites and turning them into live action features, Jungle Book rightly dispelled those apprehensions by knocking the box office's dick in...
