Gina Rodriguez grounds Miranda July’s latest flight of whimsy, Kajillionaire

Note: The writer of this review watched Kajillionaire from home on a digital screener. Before making the decision to see it—or any other film—in a movie theater, please consider the health risks involved. Here’s 

an interview on the matter with scientific experts.

For a litmus test on whether Kajillioniare will spark pastel delight or a case of quirk-induced dyspepsia, look to the foam. It’s...

This Is Spinal Tap creators settle rights dispute, are now free to make ill-advised sequels

This Is Spinal Tap creators settle rights dispute, are now free to make ill-advised sequels

It’s been nearly four years since

R.I.P. Ron Cobb, cartoonist and designer of Alien ship and Back To The Future DeLorean

According to The Hollywood Reporter, cartoonist-turned-production designer Ron Cobb—whose contributions to the sci-fi film genre you will certainly recognize—has died from Lewy body dementia at the age of 83. Over the course of his Hollywood career, which took off in a somewhat unexpected way, Cobb worked on Star Wars, Alien, Conan The Barbarian, The Abyss, Close Encounters Of The Third Kind,...

Weekend Box Office: A flaw emerges in Warner Bros.' long-term Tenet plan

Weekend Box Office: A flaw emerges in Warner Bros.' long-term Tenet plan

It’s Monday, which means it’s time to find another way to say that people are still going to movie theaters to see Christopher Nolan’s

Tenet (and other things) even though we’re still in the middle of a pandemic and you really shouldn’t be risking your life and the lives of others just to see—at least according to A.V. Club Film Editor A.A. Dowd —what sounds like an unnecessarily confusing...

Millie Bobby Brown solves a dull mystery in Netflix’s disappointing Enola Holmes

Millie Bobby Brown solves a dull mystery in Netflix’s disappointing Enola Holmes

Earlier this year, the estate of Arthur Conan Doyle

sued Netflix over the new film Enola Holmes—as well as the author of the kids’ books that serve as its source material—for violating copyright on 10 Sherlock Holmes stories. While many of the most famous Holmes adventures remain in the public domain, the Doyle estate owns some later-period texts where Holmes shows greater empathy toward his...

Jim Caviezel says Passion sequel is "coming," will be the "biggest film in world history"

Jim Caviezel says Passion sequel is "coming," will be the "biggest film in world history"

Perhaps sensing that God has really and truly given up on humanity this time, The Passion Of The Christ star Jim Caviezel is back to hyping he and Mel Gibson’s long-in-the-works sequel to the faith-based mega-hit. In a new interview with Breitbart, Caviezel revealed that the follow-up is “coming,” adding that Gibson just recently sent him the script’s “third draft.” Fingers crossed these...

Miranda July on Kajillionaire and the art of parenting

Miranda July on Kajillionaire and the art of parenting

As one of the most singularly quirky minds working in art and indie filmmaking today, writer/director Miranda July has enchanted audiences with her delicate storytelling, oddball characters, and intimate understanding of universal insecurity. She’s turned awkward womanhood into a virtue with films like

Me And You And Everyone We Know and The Future , and that feeling is something her latest...

Chloé Zhao's Nomadland takes top prize at Toronto International Film Festival

If you’ve managed to spend the last few weeks dodging the hype over Chloé Zhao’s Nomadland, get ready for that side-stepping to become a little harder: After winning the top prize at the Venice Film Festival (the Golden Lion, which is the best award name and best award statuette) a little over a week ago, the film has also now taken home of The Toronto International Film Festival’s People’s...

Queen Elizabeth II strips Harvey Weinstein of CBE honor

In what we can only assume will turn out to be the most dispiriting thing to happen to him during

his 23-year-prison sentence to date , former Hollywood mega-producer and current convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein will no longer be able to insist his fellow inmates refer to him by his proper title, Harvey Weinstein, Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. That’s per...

We're all screaming "hope" and "fuck" into the void right now

We're all screaming "hope" and "fuck" into the void right now

Ruth Bader Ginsburg—legal scholar, hero to many, occasional meme, Supreme Court Justice—died today, at the age of 87, after suffering from a long battle with pancreatic cancer, and an equal-length and exhausting bout of carrying the hopes of the entire American political left on her well-conditioned but aging back. Ginsburg is survived by two children, Jane and James, and a long career spent...

The best films of Toronto 2020

The best films of Toronto 2020

Toronto ends this year not with a check out, a wave through a taxi window, and a short flight home, but with the closing of a laptop. It was, as expected, a strange year at the festival of festivals, covered from apartments that had to dual-function as movie theaters. (At least we could be assured the best seat in the house.) Film festivals are, as we’ve noted before, cultural and social...

Cinema group UniFrance condemns the "violent reaction" to Cuties

Cinema group UniFrance condemns the "violent reaction" to Cuties

French cinema collective UniFrance has taken a stand against the rather swift backlash against French director Maïmouna Doucouré and her coming-of-age drama, Cuties. On Friday, the group threw its support behind the filmmaker and the project in response to a flood of vocal detractors—many of which proudly admit that they have not seen the film—who accuse Cuties and those involved of...

Someone has already put Darude's "Sandstorm" over the Dune trailer

Someone has already put Darude's "Sandstorm" over the Dune trailer

The only problem with

David Lynch’s 1984 film adaptation of Dune is that it was made at a time before Finnish DJ Darude had given the world “Sandstorm.” Before the track’s 1995 release, Lynch simply didn’t have the tools necessary to properly fulfill his vision of the Frank Herbert sci-fi classic . This is not a problem faced by Denis Villeneuve, who wisely waited until “Sandstorm” existed...

Jen and Brad were cute, but Shia LaBeouf's Spicoli was the star of the charity Fast Times reading

The celebs have been at it

time and again throughout the pandemic, but, if they simply must continue to foist themselves upon the suffering masses, we’d prefer it be like last night’s Fast Times At Ridgemont High read-through. Organized by Dane Cook, of all people, the high-wattage cast assembled to help raise funds for CORE and Reform Alliance, the former of which was founded by Fast Times...
