Filming Avengers: Endgame Sounds Like a Logistical Nightmare for Its Actors

A movie as bold and intriguing as scope as Avengers: Endgame – the culmination of plot threads, character arcs, relentless post-credit teases, and actor contracts across over a decade of blockbuster film making – naturally invites with it the hushed procedure of secrecy.

Little Has a Great Message But Fails to Entertain

Tina Gordon’s Little arrived in cinemas yesterday and plays with a fantasy most adults have had at one point or another: what would it be like to go back and breeze through our childhoods equipped with all of our adult knowledge?

Hellboy’s Blood-Soaked Horns Are Too Dull to Leave Much of an Impression

In the months leading up to Hellboy’s release, much noise was made about how much comic creator Mike Mignola (who co-wrote the film with Andrew Cosby) didn’t want the movie to be an origin story that retread ground Guillermo del Toro staked out in his Hellboy movies.
