In Goat, Nick Jonas plays the brother of a 19-year-old college kid who pledges the same fraternity as he does, and they end up going through hell (week) -- literally, as the hazing borders on torture in the name of brotherhood.

Mon, 09/26/2016 - 09:00

hit I once made a strong and very convincing argument that it is always best to read the book before the movie based upon it. I went on and on about how books and movies are two unique interpretations of the same story, just told through a different lens, but that the former allows viewers of the film an additional depth that nonreaders would never know.

Viewers of Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven remake (or reimagining) will no doubt find action, suspense and a whole lot of bullets flying across dirt-covered paths, but what they may also be surprised to find is just how much humor is packed into the film, too.

Mon, 09/26/2016 - 06:55

Tim Burton is responsible for two of the best comic book movies of all time, or at least of the pre-superhero-overload era. And he wasn't going to end with 1989's Batman and its sequel, Batman Returns, either, having been long involved with another DC Comics adaptation, Superman Lives, until the whole project fell apart.
