See the Camp Firewood gang reunite in the new trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later

Back in 2001, a small-budget comedy from David Wain and Michael Showalter that parodied 80’s summer camp films was seen as a critical and commercial failure, but became a cult classic.... Continue Reading

Film Review: Masterminds (M15+) (USA, 2016) never hits its target sucessfully

When “based on a true story” flashes across the screen in the beginning moments of Masterminds, you can’t help but think that it’s trying to squeeze an easy laugh out of its audience.

Justin Bieber dies and Mugatu returns in the first official trailer for Zoolander 2

Some terrible madman is going around killing the world’s most beautiful people, including Usher and Justin Bieber, in Zoolander 2, forcing them to leave the world one last selfie with Derek Zoolander’s (Ben Stiller) signature look, Blue Steel. Such is life in the Zoolander universe as we once again take a close look at the life of a washed-up male model idiot, who must re-team with his BFF Hansel (Owen Wilson) and hot-therefore-trustworthy Penelope Cruz to infiltrate the fashion world and (probably) save the day. It’s all in this hilarious trailer full of spilled latte’s, Benedict Cumberbatch and Kristen Wiig, which has been released by Paramount Pictures today and is already sitting at over one million views on Youtube....
