Fuck this movie. Seriously. Fuuuuuuuck this movie.
Lars Von Trier’s latest is a two and a half hour long descent into hell, literally and figuratively. It’s torture, and not in the manner Von Trier intended, either.

The Coen Brothers go West for six spooky tales equally powered by wordplay and gunplay.
Kurt Russell is a sexy, skinny, scumbag Santa in this Yuletide rip-off of Adventures in Babysitting.
So it turns out that Michael Shannon Furry Sex Comedy Christmas movie is EVERY bit as insane as you'd imagine. The horror, the horror!

You know that Nicolas Cage chainsaw fight movie? It’s crazy and great, in that order.
We’re simply “mad” about Lady Gaga and her star-making turn in the latest incarnation of A Star is Born.
You know that new Predator movie that’s supposed to be #quitepoor? It’s actually not so bad!
