Felt Gets National Release Date and Teaser Poster

Felt showed at Fantastic Fest last year, and I regrettably missed it, but it was one of the films that were talked about non-stop during the festival. The film by director Jason Banker is an interesting look into the effects of sexual trauma through the lens of revenge and its psychological impact on a creative individual. As the evocative teaser poster will tell you, its a bit odd and beautiful and you can follow us after the jump for more info!

Reel Review: Mad Max: Fury Road

Mad Max Poster

Welcome to the world of Mad Max, where he who controls water is king and warlords can be found seething throughout the rest of this barren, post-apocalyptic wasteland. When a dictator’s prized possessions flee, terror, mayhem, and debauchery ensue. George Miller’s, Mad Max: Fury Road opens with the capture of road warrior, Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy). We are quickly introduced to the war boys, a pasty, rabid group of men who are brainwashed to serve their gruesome leader, Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne). Joe’s power lies in the restriction of water and food and the war boys want nothing more than to prove their worth to Joe through their own death during combat. Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) creates the war by aiding in the escape of Joe’s treasured breeders (5 women also known as, The Wives). Max becomes the blood bag for Nux (Nicholas Hoult), a war boy who leads the pursuit until Furiosa exhibits her strength. Determined to reach her homeland deemed “The Green Place”, Furiosa, the breeders and eventually Max barrel through their own path towards humanity.

Reel Review: Avengers Age of Ultron

7 years ago Iron Man came out and was more than anyone hoped we could’ve gotten from super hero movies and made it so that we all felt comics could be made to movies. But even then with the rumors of an Avengers movie many smart people still felt like that was a hell of a pipe dream. That’s the part quite a few people forget though I’m sure you guys know the rest that Marvel succeeded with Avengers too and has steam rolled the summer box office ever since leading us to now. So I guess for most people the question isn’t really an “if” the Avengers Age of Ultron is truly good but more likely just how good it is and I’m happy to do just that for you now!

Reel Review: True Story

When you hear about a movie starring Jonah Hill and James Franco comedy is the first thing that comes to mind, and secondly you’d at least think its gonna be good as their films together generally are. That certainly was my thoughts when I heard about True Story originally a few months ago, and despite the fact that this one was a drama I did have high hopes. So the big question is whether or not that actually paid off as their pairings usually do, and of course I have your answer after the jump.

Matthew Vaughn Possibly Directing Flash Gordon

I’m not a big fan of reporting on things that aren’t finished deals as they’re basically rumors, though when those rumors are about really awesome possibilities I’m a bit weak. While the site was down the fantastic Kingsmen directed by Vaughn came out and made me very happy and I’m always a fan of Flash Gordon thanks to the 1980’s film. So thankfully there’s more than just simple rumor on this but if you’d like all the details you’ll want to follow us after the jump.

Reel Review: Furious 7

If you’ve read the site for a while now you should understand my tastes enough to even expect that I am a big fan of the Fast and Furious series of movies. So Furious 7, even with the regrettable looming specter of Paul Walker’s unfortunate death, has been one of my biggest movies of the summer behind only Avengers 2: Rise of Ultron. With a much lauded showing as SXSW I was beyond excited for my midnight screening and now that that’s done I am happy to pass me feelings and experience on to you guys!
