New York Film Critics Circle Names Lady Bird Best Film of 2017

Today saw the New York Film Critics Circle announce their year end awards, culminating in the group naming Greta Gerwig's "Lady Bird" as the Best Film of 2017. The film also received Best Actress for Saoirse Ronan. The group had a number of unexpected recipients, including Tiffany Haddish for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in "Girls Trip" and Sean Baker for Best Director for The Florida Project (beating out several high-profile names like Nolan, Del Toro, McDonagh, Spielberg, and more). Other than that, surprises that weren't entirely unexpected included Timothee Charlamet winning Best Actor for his outstanding performance in "Call Me By Your Name" and Willem Dafoe winning Best

First Thrilling Trailer for Avengers: Infinity War Drops

It seems like we've been waiting forever for the first trailer for "Avengers: Infinity War" (well, at least for an official, non-bootlegged version), but at long last, Disney/Marvel Studios has finally delivered an epic, action-packed look at the film that is sure to have fans sitting on the edges of their seats. The film, which deals with our heroes banding together and attempting to stop the evil Thanos from collecting the Infinity Stones, will once again reunite all your favorites, including Iron Man, Thor, Spider-Man, Captain America, Doctor Strange, Black Widow, Hulk, and more. Granted, this will be the first in this particular Marvel franchise that doesn't involve the great Joss Whedon

National Board of Review Names The Post the Best Film of 2017

The National Board of Review has officially kicked off awards season by naming "The Post," Steven Spielberg's journalist drama, the best film of 2017. The film also received Best Actor (Tom Hanks) and Best Actress (Meryl Streep). Looking down the rest of the awards, there isn't too much here that was outside the realm of possibility, though it was rather unexpected to see Greta Gerwig beat out several other major names to take Best Director for her critically-acclaimed "Lady Bird." The only real shocker in this batch was seeing "Get Out" take Best Ensemble over other presumed frontrunners. Other than that, I suppose the only surprise is seeing what was left out. There were no mentions of Mar

Justice League: A Premature Gathering of DC Superheroes

“Justice League.” It’s the movie that many DC Comics superfans have been waiting for for years now, the film that will finally unite several of their favorite superheroes to do battle against an evil being that threatens all life on Earth. Indeed, it has been a long time coming, though as to what to expect when we finally got here was another matter. After all, as I’ve mentioned before, the DCEU has been having an awful lot of trouble establishing their universe thanks to poorly-written and overall lackluster films like “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Suicide Squad.” Would throwing together all of the superheroes at once be enough to make for a fun, exciting, and entertaining ride

IT comes to Digital HD December 19th and Blu-ray/DVD January 9th

Adaptations of Stephen King's novels have always been hit or miss over the decades, but one thing's for sure, this year's adaptation of "IT," which follows a group of kids that try to stop an evil creature in their small town, was one of the best to come along in a long time. With a fantastic cast, including a delightfully creepy Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise the Clown, the film featured a number of good scares, giving us one of the better horror efforts of the last few years. Not only was it loved by the critics, but it was also a box office smash, pulling in nearly $700 million worldwide. At long last, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced that the horror hit will be coming to Digita

Westworld: Season One: The Sci-Fi Classic Gets an Intriguing Update (Blu-ray)

The Show: HBO has certainly never been afraid to take big, bold risks when it comes to pushing the bounds of what we see on television. From sprawling crime dramas like “The Sopranos” and “Boardwalk Empire” to massive epics like “Rome” and “Game of Thrones,” they have given us some of the greatest shows ever produced over the last 20 years or so, but they’re not content to let it rest there. For their next daring venture, they have delved not only into the realm of drama once more, but also science-fiction, taking inspiration from a classic Michael Crichton film from 1973 to give us a new and updated take on “Westworld.” As expected, its massive scale befits the audacious story it seeks to t

Thor: Ragnarok: A Dark Franchise Cranks Up the Fun

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is well-known for having some insanely entertaining franchises under its belt, including “Guardians of the Galaxy” (still their best series of films to date) and “Captain America” (which has provided some of the most action-packed films in the entire collection). However, there have also been some series that have somewhat fallen on the wayside, one of which has been the “Thor” films. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed both previous films well-enough (and they were decently received by most), but in all honesty, they weren’t very memorable, and besides Thor and his brother Loki, the characters were equally forgettable. Now we are faced with the inevitable third film,
