The Oscar-nominated News of the World, directed by Paul Greengrass and starring Tom Hanks, makes its arrival on home video. It may be hard to believe but News of the World marks the first time in his career in which actor Tom Hanks stars in a Western. Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Tom Hanks) travels around to read people the news. One could also look at this as being old-school podcasting before podcasting was ever a…"News of the World Arrives on Home Video"
Godzilla makes its arrival on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack and Digital just in time for the release of Godzilla vs. Kong. While the 2014 Godzilla film is meant to serve as the first film in a new MonsterVerse, there’s simply not enough of the monster in action. The film starts off in the Philippines in 1999 where Monarch scientists Ishiro Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) and Vivienne Graham (Sally Hawkins) make a surprise discovery. Whatever…"Godzilla Arrives On 4K In Time For New Film"
The violent action-thriller, Nobody, stars Better Call Saul‘s Bob Odenkirk in what could very well be his most violent role to date. Until Breaking Bad and follow-up series Better Call Saul came to be, most of us knew Bob Odenkirk for his comedy. But without the former, it’s possible we don’t get Odenkirk cast in Steven Spielberg’s The Post. Of course, I don’t know this for sure. Come to think of it, I don’t think…"Nobody: A Violent Action-Thriller"
The Mighty Ducks might be underdogs in the original 1990s trilogy but they became fan favorites as a result of their original run. In reading through the oral history in TIME, it’s fascinating to see what these films could have become. Imagine a darker first film along the same lines as Little Miss Sunshine. More than this, imagine Peter Berg portraying Gordon Bombay. I don’t know about you but Emilio Estevez will always be Coach…"The Mighty Ducks Are The Underdogs"
Conference panels and short films might be online through April 18 but this year’s 2021 SXSW Film Festival ended on Saturday. I knew going into this year’s film festival that chances were high for a non-productive fest. Would it have been the same if I were physically attending in person? I don’t know. What I can say for certain is that during an in-person fest, I’m not spending so much time on my phone or…"SXSW 2021: Film Festival Wrap-Up"
Megan Park spoke with Solzy at the Movies about The Fallout after learning that the film took home two SXSW Film Festival awards. Starring Jenna Ortega and Maddie Ziegler, The Fallout is a film that takes on a perspective not seen in the news. While some school shooting survivors are able to turn their pain into change, others aren’t in this position. This is because they are so traumatized that they can barely even leave…"SXSW 2021: Megan Park talks The Fallout"
Andrew Carter and Kahlil Maskati spoke with Solzy at the Movies about short film Marvin’s Never Had Coffee Before during SXSW. As the title states, Marvin Wexler (Charles Rogers) has never had coffee before. This film was shot during the pandemic and doesn’t ignore it. I better warn you now if you’re suffering from Zoom fatigue and want to move on to other short films. Anyway, Marvin is trying coffee for the first time and…"SXSW 2021: Marvin’s Never Had Coffee Before"
Marvel fans will be happy as The Falcon and The Winter Soldier finally makes it’s arrival on Disney+ after a very lengthy delay. It’s been more than a few months since the last time we saw Sam Wilson/The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes (Sebastian Stan). The last time we saw them was when old Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) suddenly appeared on a bench late in Avengers: Endgame. In case you forgot, Steve…"The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Finally Arrives"
The Courier, formerly titled Ironbark, is a Cold War era spy thriller starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Rachel Brosnahan. I love a good spy thriller and The Courier is no exception. My only regret is that I didn’t have the opportunity to watch the film during Sundance in 2020. Screening conflicts mean having to choose between films and I also wasn’t feeling well for most of the festival. I can certainly say that watching films at…"The Courier: A Cold War Spy Thriller"
Polaris Banks spoke with Solzy at the Movies following the world premiere of Reklaw during the 2021 SXSW Film Festival. The gist of the film is that there is a team of altruistic vigilantes destroying evidence. Their goal here is to keep the maximum amount of people out of prison. However, the killer decides to revisit one of their clean-ups. It doesn’t really work out so well. This film is as midnight as it gets!…"SXSW 2021: Polaris Banks talks Reklaw"
