‘Teen Spirit’ Trailer: Elle Fanning Becomes a Pop Star

Our culture loves rags-to-riches stories about normal people who perform under extraordinary circumstances and become superstars – we’ve seen it in everything from Rocky to A Star is Born.

Teen Spirit is the directorial debut of actor Max Minghella, who has appeared in shows like The Handmaid’s Tale and movies like The Social Network. Elle Fanning (Super 8, I Think We’re Alone Now...

Junkyard Find: 1989 Nissan Stanza Sedan

By the 1989 model year, the weak-selling Nissan Stanza Wagon (aka Nissan Prairie) was gone from the United States, but the unrelated Nissan Stanza sedan continued to sell (poorly) through 1992.

‘Teen Spirit’ Review: Max Minghella’s Directorial Debut Lacks Pop [TIFF]

If A Star is Born was the folk song of the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, a familiar tune brilliantly rendered by cover artist Bradley Cooper, then Teen Spirit was its pop song. The film is derivative, calibrated to appeal to a lowest-common-denominator audience … and yet admittedly catchy, even if it’s immediately recognizable as an interchangeable work. Find out more in our Teen Spirit review below. Max Minghella, best known for his work in front of the camera as Divya Narendra f...

‘Incredibles 2’ Spoiler Review: The Family That Fights Together, Stays Together

The Incredibles arrived on the scene in 2004 when superheroes were taking off at the box office, but hadn’t ventured into the behemoth of success that would come with the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Universe just four years later. Now that 14 years have passed since the original, the superhero game is well-tread and seasoned territory. But leave it to the geniuses at Pixar Animation to craft a superhero sequel that is positively superb simply because it isn’t your average superhero movie....

‘Incredibles 2’ Review: A Superior Pixar Sequel That Can’t Quite Match the First One

The charms of Pixar Animation Studios’ first wave of original films have been replaced in the 2010s by a barrage of sequels. Their early films felt fresh. Even though the company’s third film was the beloved Toy Story 2, Pixar avoided the Hollywood impulse of turning into a sequel factory. But recently, they’ve made Cars 2, Cars 3, Monsters University, and Finding Dory, which mostly failed to live up to expectations. Now, we have Incredibles 2, whose writer/director Brad Bird is only a few year...

Review: Violet Evergarden

Netflix has been working on their anime co-productions for a while now.

We’ve Seen 35 Minutes of ‘Incredibles 2’: This Family of Superheroes Has Never Been Better

The Incredibles hit theaters all the way back in 2004, and it was easily the most sophisticated and involved animated adventure that Pixar Animation had brought to the big screen yet. The film arrived at a time when the superhero film genre was still figuring itself out, with hits coming from the X-Men and Spider-Man franchises and complete disasters arriving in the form of Daredevil and Catwoman. Since then, superhero movies have exploded, largely thanks to the success of the Marvel Cinematic ...
