‘The Lodge’ Directors Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala on Building Atmosphere and Referencing ‘Jack Frost’ [Interview]

Filmmakers Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala know how to let a movie get under an audience’s skin. Even the simplest of their shots, such as Riley Keough scratching her knees, elicit discomfort. They maintain that mood of dread throughout the their newest film, The Lodge, their followup to Goodnight Mommy. Their latest is a chilly head trip of a horror movie about bottled-up emotions exploding into fear, terror, and mystery. It’s an unsettling experience best seen blind. “This movie lingers long...

Cinematic Batman Lips, Ranked

Last night, we got our very at Robert Pattinson suited up as the latest live-action incarnation of Batman. Glimpse is a diplomatic word for it, frankly—softly shot, lit in red, and barely lit at that, we did not get to see much of this new Batman. Not even a full cowl! But we saw enough to rank…Read more...

CS Soapbox: Why Tobey Maguire HAS To Be in Multiverse of Madness

CS Soapbox: Why Tobey Maguire HAS To Be in Multiverse of Madness Last month saw the devastating departure of co-writer/director Scott Derrickson from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but yesterday saw some exciting potential as Sam Raimi, the man behind the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man trilogy, has entered talks to take the reins. While this seems great in having another horror director take over, Raimi taking the job would also open up a new possibility: bridging the MCU with other M...

I Cannot Believe There's Really Going to Be a Morbius Movie

If you told me 20 years ago that third-tier Spider-Man character Morbius the Living Vampire would not just appear in a comic book movie but star in one, I’d have laughed in your face. If you told me 10, or even five years ago, I would have called you a liar. Now, the movie is coming out in a mere six months, and the …Read more...

‘Worth’ Review: Michael Keaton and Amy Ryan Measure the Human Cost of 9/11 [Sundance 2020]

Almost 20 years after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 claimed nearly 3,000 lives, director Sara Colangelo’s Worth attempts to project some humanity back onto that statistic. The whole movie revolves around a central question: how much is a human life worth? In this true story, Michael Keaton and Amy Ryan star as a pair of lawyers who take the unenviable job of calculating a dollar amount for every victim of those tragic events. Make no mistake: this movie is not an easy watch. The...

‘Worth’: Film Review

As a child, when future TV host Fred Rogers would see scary images on the news, his mother would tell him, “Look for the heroes.” If Fred were a boy today, she’d add, “Look for Ken Feinberg.” Feinberg, the lawyer at the center of Sara Colangelo’s “Worth,” specializes in putting a price tag on human […]

The Spider-Verse Connections in Morbius Are Confusing as Hell

Morbius’ first trailer has arrived, and while it mostly focuses on laying out the origin story of its titular vampire, it also suggests that the movie’s going to have some rather direct and significant ties to Spider-Man, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and...perhaps Sony’s excellent Spider-Man game.

Does ‘Morbius’ Connect to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ‘Venom’, or Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man Universe?

The first trailer for Morbius arrived today, teasing a character from Marvel Comics who typically has connections to our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Since it was announced, the film has always been considered a Spider-Man spin-off like Venom, but the first footage revealed today paints a confusing picture as to whether or not this movie connects to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or if it will take place in the universe established by Venom where there seems to be no Spider-Man. In fact, t...

Kindness and Wonder: Mr Rogers biography is a study in empathy and a deep, genuine love for children

Edwards is an eclectic writer, best known perhaps for his work at Rolling Stone, his whimsical books about the likes of Bill Murray and his books about misheard lyrics. But in Kindness and Wonder, Edwards fuses his reporter's investigative and narrative ability with his vast interest in popular culture's long shadow to tell a tale that is both gentle and wonderful, in a manner befitting its subject. In Edwards' hands, Rogers' life story comes to life as both a commonplace -- a sheltered, wea...
