Director Kim Nguyen's The Hummingbird Project is a post-financial crisis thriller where success or failure literally hinge on milliseconds. But does a strong premise and two great leads mean a bear market or a bull market?

If there is such a thing as a good lie, is there such a thing as a good murder?
Big Little Lies is a beautifully shot, thought-provoking drama that contains knock out performances from some talented powerhouses.
In War on Everyone, Michael Peña and Alexander Skarsgård play the "Bad Cop/ Bad Cop" routine to occasionally hilarious effect.
How did a show that initially displayed such a nuanced understanding of evolving relationships (vampire or otherwise) become the incoherent mess we said goodbye to in August?
Both slavishly faithful to and thematically distant from Lois Lowry's almost seminal early 90s young adult bestseller, The Giver stands as proof that not every iconic text can work as a coherent film.

The East is the kind of film that says a lot more with a whisper then it does with a scream, and while people may not be able to look past what the film’s ultimate message, in it’s quieter moments all of the emotional punches hit their marks.

Sometimes a press release comes along that’s just too implausible to pass up. There’s just something about it that catches the eye or something in the content that contains a hard to refuse offer. Such is the case with this week’s direct to DVD release of the film 13. The release stated that the film starred Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Alexander Skarsgard and Michael Shannon in a remake of director Gela Babluani’s wonderful 2005 film 13 Tzameti with Babluani returning to helm the new version.
Finale?! WHAT?! Why did no one tell me this season was only 12 episodes long? Oh, I'm supposed to know that because I'm the reviewer? Oh, I see how that works now. On Sunday night, True Blood ended its fourth season with a bang… or a wet fart, depending on who you ask. It seems Alan Ball chose to dangle plot promises for next season in front of our faces instead of making the end of this one any good.
As the season’s end draws near, True Blood amps it up this week with the eleventh episode ‘Soul of Fire’. This latest installment was dynamic, but felt somewhat rushed. That can only mean Alan Ball is gearing up for one hell of a finale, right? Here’s hoping.
True Blood follows up last week's doofy ghost story with a surprising tearjerker of an episode entitled 'Burning Down the House'. In the tenth episode Sookie and Eric's worst fear comes true, Tommy finally gets his and Bill is determined to take out the witch once and for all, no matter the cost.
