Weekly Recap: The Founder, Split, xXx: Return of Xander Cage & More!


This week sees the release of M. Night Shyamalan's Split and there is a literal split in terms of potential profits, as it is up against Vin Diesel's xXx: Return of Xander Cage. Also opening wide is The Founder, which finds Michael Keaton as Ray Kroc, the "founder" of McDonald's. Also worth noting is the limited release of The Red Turtle and wide expansion of 20th Century Women. I've not reviewed them, but both are quite good. A bunch of new home release are out this week as well, along with some new trailers and other news. Lastly, be sure to check out our Silence podcast, as we cover some great ground on it and more. Enjoy!

In Theaters Now:

(Michael Keaton is terrific and the script is great, but the direction...)

(James McAvoy is terrific, but the rest...)

(Vin Diesel delivers some silly fun)

How About That Trailer? - Power Rangers


The biggest question I have for those concerned with the quality of a Power Rangers is what did they expect? For the most part, this official trailer delivers on the promise of what a cinematic, big-budget version of  a 24-year old kids show would be. There's also a question of who this movie is supposed to be for, but again I wonder what the balance is between an older fan's nostalgic appreciation is and what this trailer delivers as far as how this would actually play out.

Out Now 271: Silence


This week’s Out Now with Aaron and Abe finds the group getting into the limits of faith. Aaron and Abe are joined by Maxwell Haddad for a dissection of the Martin Scorsese passion project, Silence. The guys get into some very interesting discussion of the film and its theological elements, along with plenty of other movie-related thoughts. Among topics covered, we have a fun round of Know Everybody (5:00), some Out Now Quickies™ (10:55), Trailer Talk for A Cure for Wellness (22:00), the main review (27:16), Out Now Feedback (1:02:35), and Games (1:14:57). We then wrap things up (1:22:50) and have some bloopers (1:33:27), following this week’s close out song.  So now, if you’ve got an hour or so to kill…

Weekly Recap: The Best Films of 2016, Paterson & More!


This was a big week as far as laying out my favorite films of 2016. I put together five different lists to go through this whole process, which was a lot fun, but also a lot of hard work. Please enjoy all they I put down in that regard. Additionally, Paterson opens in limited release this week, along with A Monster Calls, so dig into those reviews. There are also some new home releases and a couple of great podcasts to check out. And that will do it for Weekly Recaps of 2016, so be sure to stop by again in the new year. Enjoy!

2016 Year-End Recap: Final Round Up Of Random Film Shout Outs


On December 30th, I will be publishing my Top Ten Films of 2016 list over at Why So Blu?. I will post it here at a later date as well. Leading up to the Top Ten, though, I will be posting a number of lists reflecting my thoughts on the many films from this year. The following post features a variety of films I wanted to give a shout out to. Whether they are some of the documentaries I caught up with, some of the big blockbusters I was entertained by, or some of the smaller or foreign-language films I really enjoyed but couldn't fit into my top ten, let alone my top thirty, I wanted to provide a list that gave them all some more notice. So here a list of random shout outs for the films of 2016 (with links to the reviews for each when available).
