News is really beginning to pick for the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman, with recent confirmation that Wonder Woman herself would be in the film (more or less confirming that the movie is, essentially, The Justice League).  Just today, we have two major new bits of information to share about the film, concerning its villain and its screenwriter.

Her: Movie Review

Published by

her-1
Spike Jonze's Her is a beautiful film that fills audiences with hope even with an ever-changing digital landscape. It's comical and has a lighthearted feel that emanates. Unfortunately, it's slightly predictable and drawn out story stops it from being the perfect movie.

Paul Thomas Anderson has made a great number of movies that in short are magnificent. He's one of the best modern day filmmakers we have out there and the casting for his latest picture Inherent Vice should get many fans of his work excited. 

Owen Wilson May Take On An 'Inherent Vice'

Owen-Wilson
We may recognize Owen Wilson as that pouty lipped lead guy in a number of comedies, but he can hold his own when it pertains to the more dramatic roles. It appears that Wilson will be going the more dramatic route again with his next possible role in the new Paul Thomas Anderson flick Inherent Vice.

Paul Thomas Anderson's 'Inherent Vice' is Actually Happening

Though Paul Thomas Anderson may be revered as one of the greatest working filmmakers of our day, his films have rarely been profitable. At best his films do a little better than break even (many don't even do that), which makes it that much harder for the director to get his projects going. Recently, Anderson struggled to find financing for The Master until Megan...

Perhaps in the haze of the post-Oscar season, there wasn’t a lot of pressure to put out films on Blu-ray this week, but we are getting two of the best films of last year, and one of the Coen Brothers’ most underrated films (partly because it was a bomb on release).

When you begin to pay attention to the awards circuit, it's difficult to find out which critic circles or award ceremonies have a great track record with their predictions. It's easy to get lost in the flurry that is the awards season, especially around this time of year when every other major town is hollering about who they deem as their top picks. This week on Oscar Scuttlebutt not only do...

The start of Oscar season is usually packed with a lot of hopefuls based on casts and prestige possibilities, but the reality is that at some point, someone's going to see your movie, and eventually consensus will build. One day you may be the talk of the town, and then the next day your movie will come out in limited theaters and find no audience. Or just as bad, it's forgotten about it...

Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master didn't need 3D or IMAX to break box office records, just a crowd of devoted cinephiles. The highly anticipated film opened in five theaters in New York and Los Angeles over the weekend, and set the record for highest per-screen-average for a live-action feature with a traditional release. If that sounds like just a bunch of gibberish,...

The Master: Movie Review

The-Master
The Master, Paul Thomas Anderson's follow-up to There Will Be Blood came with a lot of misconceptions. Is it about Scientology? Yes and no. Does it deconstruct Scientology? Not at all. The film paints a portrait of a veteran (Joaquin Phoenix) who returns home, but is still adrift, only to end up in the arms (and cult) of Lancaster Dodd...

It’s almost here—Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master, one of our most anticipated films of the year, gets a limited run on September 14th before going wide on September 21st.  But before it does, we’ve got one final trailer for the film, which, like the trailers that came before it, is a quietly unnerving collection of off-kilter, menacing music married to an abstract...

The second teaser for Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master dropped today, and it’s a creepy, unsettling, and hypnotic as the first teaser that was released in late May.  While that trailer focused on a drifter played by Joaquin Phoenix who comes under the sway of an unseen L.

Some context: The Master, Paul Thomas Anderson’s long awaiting follow-up to 2007’s There Will Be Blood, has been passed from studio to studio since 2009, for varying reasons that range from budgetary issues to the fact that the film is supposedly a thinly-veiled and scathing critique of Scientology.  Regardless of the reasoning, PTA finally got The...

Joaquin Phoenix is still a wanted man in Hollywood. Even after his pseudo-retirement for the documentary I'm Still Here, he's managed to keep producers and directors interested in him. Why, you ask? Because the man has chops! He can actually act. He didn't get nominated for two Oscars for nothing. According to Deadline, Phoenix is being courted to star alongside...
