Fast & Furious 9 Review: The Perfect Movie To Welcome You Back To The Theater

In the 20 years since the first Fast and Furious movie hit theaters, the series has relied less and less on reality to tell its story. What started as a smaller-budget action movie about street racing in Los Angeles evolved to people in cars fighting nuclear submarines, with the heroes all somehow surviving. In the latest installment, Fast 9, the franchise takes the final step in accepting how ridiculous the premise has become. And, thankfully, it works like a charm.

Mortal Kombat Movie Review: A Nearly Flawless Victory

When the original Mortal Kombat film shot into theaters like a Liu Kang fireball in 1995, it quickly became a guilty pleasure for many. While it was fun, featured plenty of action, and had quite possibly the coolest soundtrack of all time, it was not a very good adaptation of the video game it was based on. Now, though, Mortal Kombat is back on the big screen for a second shot at igniting a live-action movie franchise.

Why The Mortal Kombat Movie's Main Character Isn't From The Games

With a new movie arriving in theaters and on HBO Max this week, it's hard not to look back at the films that came before, 1995's Mortal Kombat and 1997's Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. Not only did the characters from the games make up the supporting cast for the film, but the story centered around the iconic Liu Kang. In the new film, though, the central figure isn't from the games. He's an original character.

WWE/Netflix's The Main Event Review: It's Like Mike With Wrestlers

The partnership between WWE and Netflix is bringing some intriguing content to the streaming service in April. Already, The Big Show Show--a half-hour sitcom starring the wrestling giant--has premiered. Now, the first Netflix original film from WWE Studios is debuting. The Main Event stars Seth Carr (Black Panther) as Leo Thompson, an eleven-year-old who finds a magical wrestling mask that gives him special powers and sets him on a journey to become a WWE Superstar. Imagine the 2002 family come

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Impossible Story Behind Coming Out Of Their Shells

It was August 1990, and there was no more popular franchise than the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The comic book that two creators--Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird--created as a joke and printed in their garage had spawned a hit animated series and, now, a blockbuster movie. Following a March 30 release, the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie went on to earn over $202 million at the box office. The sky was seemingly the limit on what could be done with this property.

How Onward Tells Pixar's Most Personal Story Yet

When a new Pixar movie arrives in theaters, chances are you're going to see it expecting to be devastated. Whether it's the life-long journey of a group of toys in the Toy Story franchise, the decimation of Earth at the hands of humans in Wall-E, or an old man finding new life in Up, Pixar tends to find a way to entertain mass audiences with colorful and exciting adventures, while also addressing emotionally complex issues that many will face throughout their lifetime. That's a trend that conti

Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet Review - Apple TV+ Levels Up With Game Developer Comedy

When it was announced that It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia co-creator Rob McElhenney was teaming with Sunny executive producers Charlie Day and Megan Ganz to create a comedy about video game developers for Apple TV+, it was easy to expect a show rife with Sunny's humor but set in a Silicon Valley-esque development studio. Instead, Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet strays far from Sunny's signature brand of raunchy humor.

Black Christmas (2019) Review: A Forgettable Holiday Slasher

The original Black Christmas, released in 1974, is a slasher movie that essentially boils down to a sorority being stalked, harassed, and killed off by a deranged killer during the Christmas holiday. It doesn't explore anything about the killer, really, or what's motivating the killings. This simplicity led to mixed reviews and eventual cult film status. The 2019 remake--if you can call it a remake--is almost the exact opposite. The simplified plot is gone. Instead of a single deranged killer,

Jay And Silent Bob Reboot Review: Kevin Smith's Comfort Zone Is A Nice Place To Be

It's been 13 years since Jay and Silent Bob appeared on the big screen in Clerks 2, and 18 years since the movie Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, which sent the stoner duo on a cross-country trip to--of all things--stop a movie from being made. Now, nearly two decades later, Jay and Silent Bob are back to try to stop a reboot of that movie by rebooting themselves. Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is so true to its title that you can't help but laugh. In the film, the titular Jay and Bob--portrayed once

Gemini Man Review - Not Even Two Will Smiths Can Save This One

What's better than a movie starring Will Smith? A movie starring two Will Smiths. At least, that's what director Ang Lee is hoping audiences will think with his latest film, Gemini Man. The new thriller pits Will Smith against a completely CGI recreation of his younger self in a movie that features some truly impressive action scenes. Unfortunately, there isn't much going on in Gemini Man beyond that. Let's get this out of the way first: Gemini Man is a technological marvel. Director Ang Lee an

Rambo: Last Blood Review - Home Alone Meets Saw Meets Xenophobia

It's been nearly 40 years since First Blood arrived in theaters, introducing the world to a Vietnam veteran named John Rambo. That movie paints the traumatized war hero as someone who doesn't want to kill, even though he can with ease. The three sequels that followed quickly cast that aside, instead indulging in the kind of over-the-top violence that action movies in the '80s were known for. Rambo blew things up, crashed tanks into helicopters, and seemed satisfied with the very high body count.

Spider-Man Far From Home Deleted Scene Snaps The Movie's Best Characters

We're well aware that in Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos, played by Josh Brolin, dusted so many people--half of all living beings, in fact. And yes, it was painful to watch characters like Peter Parker (Tom Holland) temporarily meet the ends of their lives, not realizing what's happening to them. However, it's not until the deleted scenes from Spider-Man: Far From Home that we see the most devastating victims of the blip, as the movie called it.
