After years of anxious waiting, writer/director Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated ninth film “Interstellar” finally reached theaters. This film proves, once again, that Nolan is one of the most intelligent and ambitious filmmakers in Hollywood. The sci-fi space adventure is a jaw-dropping, emotional thrill ride bold enough to rival any space set film since — dare I say it — Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

Jerry Seinfeld is one of America’s most recognized and beloved comedians. He’s achieved this with stand-up specials and a hit TV show. However, his affinity for vintage cars might surprise some people. This affinity came to a head in 2012 with the birth of his hit web-series.
If you were to take a look at the list of the highest earning horror movie franchises of all time, you would not be surprised to see many of the classics ranking among the top 10. “Halloween,” “Friday the 13th,” and “Nightmare on Elm Street” all make the list, but the franchise that lies at the top of the list may be surprising.
Since “Iron Man 3” hit theaters last May, buzz surrounding Robert Downey, Jr.’s continued involvement with Marvel Studios has been rampant. We know the actor will reprise his role as Tony Stark in the upcoming “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” but other than that, not much was known. Then, when the actor announced that there was to be an "Iron Man 4," speculation began as to what the film would be about and what other stories there were to tell about the character.
With HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” wrapping up its final season, fans of gangster-themed television shows may be left without much to choose from. But fans of the genre should fear not and search no further than Netflix for an acceptable show in the same vein that may not entirely fill the void left by “Boardwalk,” but is at least a solid start.
When the fourth season of AMC’s “Walking Dead” ended with a jaw-dropping conclusion, fans spent the next seven months waiting impatiently to see where the show would pick up and how its main group would escape the dire situation they had found themselves in. Fortunately for those eager fans, the show wasted no time and hit the ground running Sunday in the outstanding season five premiere episode, “No Sanctuary.”
Every February, the top two teams in football face off and play for the championship at the Super Bowl. For those not interested in sports, the telecast still has mass appeal, thanks in part to the notoriously expensive commercials companies pay to air as well as the halftime performance.
If last night’s premiere of “American Horror Story: Freak Show” is any indication, the fourth season of FX’s hit anthology series could be the best yet, with series creator Ryan Murphy going straight for the jugular and pulling no punches in the first hour and a half of the new series.
It’s been nearly 24 hours since I exited the theater showing “Gone Girl.” Yet, I can’t stop thinking about it, not just because of the many twists and turns or because of Ben Affleck's and Rosamund Pike's outstanding performances, but because it’s so emotionally draining.
For one week each year, the Manhattan Short Film Festival spreads across the globe to show audiences contending short films.
Very rarely will I go into a movie without seeing a trailer for it. Sure, I may be sold on the story or who the star or director is, but I usually need to see at least some footage to completely sell me on the flick. That said, when I heard Terry Gilliam’s new movie was opening, I didn’t hesitate to go to the theater despite not seeing a single trailer.
Ten years ago, Green Day released the most important album in its catalog. That’s right, it’s been a decade since the punk band’s iconic record "American Idiot" hit stores.
In 1993, Vic Armstrong made his directorial debut with the Dolph Lundgren action vehicle “Joshua Tree.” Now, more than 20 years later, the stunt man-turned-actor returns to the big screen with the new Nicolas Cage thriller “Left Behind.”
I’ve been a fan of comic books for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved the characters and the settings, but more than anything, I’ve always been captivated by their ability to tell entertaining and effective stories through a visual medium; their ability to continue to tell stories about characters everyone is familiar with while taking them in a new direction. However, when Marvel announced that it would be killing off Wolverine at the end of his current story arch, I immediately found myself both frustrated and annoyed.
On Saturday night, I had the pleasure of seeing The Aquabats in concert for the first time. Although I have been a fan for years, I had never had a chance to see the band live. I had always heard great things about Aquabats shows, so I went in with the bar set pretty high as to what to expect. Fortunately, the band did not disappoint. After seeing them live for the first time, here were my five biggest takeaways.
Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett sure know how to make a great movie.
Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett are no strangers to quality filmmaking. The director/writer combo are the brains behind the 2013 hit home-invasion flick “You’re Next” and are currently gearing up to release their newest film, the action/thriller “The Guest.”
As the Marvel Cinematic Universe prepares to launch its third “Phase” following the release of next year's “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the studio has been fairly tight-lipped about what films they will be releasing in the coming years. Previously established franchises such as “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Captain America” have confirmed sequels on the schedule, but not much has been announced as far as new franchises. “Ant-Man” is in the middle of filming (though it did lose director Edgar Wright in a surprising manner this summer), and a stand-alone picture for comic book fan-favorite hero Doctor Strange is confirmed. “Sinister” director Scott Derrickson has been signed onto helm the film, with Joaquin Phoenix rumored to be in deep talks for the role.
There was a time when Westerns were the most popular genre on television. Families would gather around their TV sets to watch shows like “Gunsmoke,” “Bonanza,” “The Rifleman" and “Winchester 73,” the list goes on and on. These days, great Westerns are few and far between, and when one manages to be a hit, usually it sticks around.
Just like with cinema, fall marks a fresh time for television. The turning of the calendar from August to September represents perhaps the biggest time of year for networks: premiere season, the three or four weeks when familiar favorites return with new episodes or when networks take a gamble on premiering new series. This year’s slate of fall TV premieres features a seemingly strong slate of new shoes as well as some highly anticipated returns. Here’s the five fall premieres I’m looking forward to the most.
