Ok, so I have to admit something, I love Kevin Smith! I love all his movies (except Jersey Girl) his comics have been hit or miss for me, while his Batman Stories have been great, his run on Green Hornet just left me a little, lets say deflated. So this comic is one of the better ones, which I was truly worried about, as I loved the comics Kick-Ass and it sequels. Hit-Girl season 2 has a bunch of stuff to make fans of the comics and movies happy.

There are movies, like any entry out of The Fast and the Furious series, that you invest time, marvel at the action, say something positive, or negative, about it, and then walk out of the theater. Sure, you may talk about it with your friends about the physic defying action, but it won’t hit you the way Jordan Peele’s new film Us does. You will go through all the motions mentioned, but it isn’t a film you will react to, but let sink in and digest. It’s the type of movie that throws so much at you, most of it works, and rattles your brain. It’s a very ambitious and worthy follow up to his first film, Get Out, which won him acclaim and an Academy Award for “Best Original Screenplay.”

I’m not sure how this review is gonna go down because a large part of me is still trying to decipher this film. After Get Out, I was very much looking forward to more of what Peele had to bring to the horror circuit and Us looked like another winner. My initial thoughts though were good, but flawed, and yet after doing some reading I’m slowly coming around to the film. I still think that Jordan Peele is one of the most interesting voices to come out of modern horror and he’s got plenty more to say, but Us might cause a bit of rift when people talk about him.
Does Jordan Peele suffer from the sophomore slump in his second film? Check out our review of Us now playing in theaters everywhere!

On this episode of the Cinephellas Podcast, I interviewed Mark Steven Johnson, the director of the new heist film, Finding Steve McQueen. Mark is no stranger to the entertainment industry and entered the Hollywood scene in the early 90’s. He has penned such great films as Grumpy Old Men, Simon Birch, and Christopher Robin. But today, I wanted to find out the directing process behind Finding Steve McQueen, working on a film that is based on a true story, working with Travis Fimmel, and his upcoming projects.

A few years ago there was little sci-fi horror flick called Resolution, the first film from filmmakers Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. I checked it out recently after realizing it was a semi-prequel to their latest work, The Endless. Resolution was a strange, slow-burning movie that revealed itself to be based around dealing with repeating time-loops and the blurring of each new reality. I enjoyed the film, but I did not come anywhere close to understanding it. By contrast, The Endless not only expands upon these ideas, but gives greater context to what’s been happening across both films. It’s still strange and confusing, but in a more digestible way.
