Thor Is Getting A New Movie, But Not The Thor You're Thinking Of


The muscly, blond-haired Thor is getting another movie, but I can almost guarantee it’s not the Thor you’re thinking about (okay, that Thor is also getting another movie, Marvel’s Thor: Ranarok, but that’s a topic for another time). In this instance, however, we’re talking about the incredible rocker Jon Mikl Thor, a heavy metal thunder god and the star of the classic Rock and Roll Nightmare.

'Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp' Trailer Leads With The Crotch


It needs to hurry the hell up and be July 31 already. Netflix just released a new trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, the eight episode prequel to the 2001 cult classic, and it’ll make you wish you could watch these new chapters today.

'London Has Fallen' Trailer Blows The Holy Hell Out Of The U.K.


If you’re surprised that the 2013 Whitehouse-under-siege actioner Olympus Has Fallen is getting a sequel, you’re not alone, but that doesn’t mean London Has Fallen isn’t happening. The Gerard Butler-starring follow up recently got delayed and pushed to a less-than-optimal release date, but it still sounds right up our alley, a point driven home by this quick new teaser trailer.

The First 'Creed' Trailer Is Intense And Powerful


The last time star Michael B. Jordan and director Ryan Coogler got together we got Fruitvale Station, and now we’re getting Creed, which appears to be a little bit spinoff, a little bit sequel to Rocky Balboa, which is something I’ll always watch and be excited about. Dropping later this fall, the film just released its first trailer, and it looks fantastic.

'Terminator Genisys' Movie Review


In a summer of rehashed franchises, I quite enjoyed Jurassic World (it isn’t a great movie, but it’s a damn lot of fun), and Mad Max: Fury Road is one of best, most eyebrow-scorching action films in years. If you were hoping that Terminator Genisys, the fifth installment in the killer-robots-from-the-future saga, was going to fall somewhere in this realm, you will be disappointed. Lazy storytelling, messy CGI, and bland action combine to form a movie that the most natural reaction to is a slump-shouldered sigh and a muttered, “I wish that was better.” Intended to launch a new trilogy, it doesn’t bring enough, or any, new ideas to the table to warrant more.

'The Hallow' Trailer Shows Why You Don't Screw With Fairies


New horror film The Hallow, which debuted earlier this year at Sundance, may not have the most original concept—an outsider goes into the haunted woods and finds evil forces that the locals know about waiting there—but it looks creepy as hell in this new trailer.

Blu-Ray Review: 'Decline Of Western Civilization' Box Set


Growing up a punk rock kid in a small or at least smallish town, Penelope Spheeris’ 1981 documentary The Decline of Western Civilization, chronicling the early Los Angeles scene, served as a de facto history text book. You poured over the footage of The Germs, Black Flag, Circle Jerks, and more, noting how they lived, how they dressed, the fuck you attitude they flaunted by their very existence. This was your primer, your roadmap to being an outsider.
