But the [...]

Out today on Blu-ray and DVD, Ingrid Goes West is a stalker film that could be considered today’s version of Single White Female. Director Matt Spicer, however, has much more on his mind than telling the story of a mentally unstable young woman named Ingrid (Aubrey Plaza) who becomes instantly fixated on a sunny Californian [...]

Review: Brad’s Status: It’s Complicated

In: MOVIE REVIEWS

How did we get here? Life can fly by in a flash, and that old adage about it being a race just brings up the idea that when viewed that way, there may be a competitive streak in all of us hoping to “win.” That’s the case for Brad Sloane (Ben Stiller), an angst-filled father [...]

As far as hockey movies go, it will be hard to top 2011’s Goon (unless you throw Slap Shot into the mix). Director Jay Baruchel, who co-wrote and starred in the original, takes on the challenging task of ensuring the franchise doesn’t have a sophomore slum with Goon: Last of the Enforcers. Thankfully, he succeeds [...]

You could argue that director Steven Soderbergh enjoyed his finest moments on the big screen with heist flicks — Ocean’s 11 and its sequels as well as Out of Sight — so it makes sense that the director ended his self-imposed retirement from films with the new heist flick, Logan Lucky.

However, this film offers [...]
