Sonuvagun! if the new red band trailer for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's apocalyptic comedy This is the End doesn't make the movie look frikkin' hilarious.

Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson. There will be cameos by pretty much anyone under 30 in Hollywood. To name a few you get Michael Cera, Emma

The comedy This

(No points for mentioning the piece of shit I'm using for an example...) Ah, villains! What would heroes be without them? More boring, for starters? Oftentimes, the villains have better character arcs, and are far more interesting than the good people who fight them. They intrigue, or are even sympathetic....
This week, the grand finale of The Hunger Games trilo-whoops-quadrilogy arrives in cinemas, with the adventures of reluctant heroine Katniss Everdeen coming to a close. Pierce Conran saw the ending and quite liked it, as he stated in his review. Katniss' target is the evil President Snow, as played by...
As we approach the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I've been noodling the idea of writing some sort of defense of the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy. If stirring up the comments section is an objective of any "think piece" on the internet in 2015, standing up and saying...
(Bond may be back, but so is the nefarious organization known as Team TwitchFilm!) Last week, Sam Mendes' second Bond film Spectre got its wide release in the United States, and loads of other places as well. By sheer luck, or rather the mystifying world of movie distribution, some...
