TIFF FILM REVIEW: The Neighbors Have Gone Mad In Uneven Clooney Flick SUBURBICON

Best pals George Clooney, Matt Damon, the Coen Brothers, and their long-time producer Grant Heslov teamed up recently to give us Suburbicon. Through the film, the clever band surely seems to think it is pushing back at the “elitist bubble” theory of America by showcasing that, au contraire, it is the suburbs that are a scary, dangerous place. But while Suburbicon shows the flashes of brilliance that you expect sometimes just slip off of the minds of the Academy-Award winning screenwriters, the joke is mostly on them, as the pulpy, overstated film ends up exposing only the depravity of...

Mahershala Ali In Talks For HBO’s TRUE DETECTIVE Season 3

Moonlight star Mahershala Ali is reportedly in early talks to star in True Detective season 3. The 43-year-old won Best Supporting Actor at this year’s Oscars for Moonlight, but now he’s reportedly in negotiations to front the third season of HBO’s True Detective. A third season of True Detective hasn’t been officially commissioned, with the second season starring Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn not being quite as beloved as the first.

FILM REVIEW: A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS Is Naughtier Than It is Nice

Those misunderstood, victimized gals from suburban Chicago motherhood are back, double the size and higher the holiday stakes. It’s A Bad Moms’ Christmas, the sequel to the 2016 comedy Bad Moms, which may as well be named “Bad Daughters.” This time the disparate trio has to deal with their own mothers (and do so mostly brattishly), while also contending with that ever stressful year-end holidays time, the presence of which is announcing itself stressfully early with this movie.
