Are you ready to take a deep soak in the mind of Tarantino?

His new mammoth Western, The Hateful Eight is a full-blown, bat-shit crazy epic built entirely from the wonderful words you’d expect in a QT film. Important thing is there are signs of growth yet again in...

Big New Releases!

12 Rounds 3: Lockdown - I had no idea there was even a follow-up to the original, but this week bring a second sequel to the action title 12 Rounds.

I’ve got to be honest, the hype surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens is almost absurd.

And the result of this man vs. nature tale is quite choppy. In the Heart of the Sea has a few impressive moments, but ultimately gets lost at sea.

The story opens with Melville (Ben Whishaw) hearing the tale from the...

He’s tasked with helping the inventor keep the discovery from a nasty businessman who wants to militarize the technology.
