In Adam Wingard's The Guest (in select theaters now), a soldier shows up at a family's home claiming to be an old friend of their dead son and is invited to stay with open arms. And then the bodies begin to pile up because everything is not as it seems and houseguests have a habit of revealing themselves to be awful, terrible people in the movies. The Guest is not the first movie to feature houseguests behaving poorly and it certainly won't be the last. Cinema is rich with people abusing the generosity of their hosts. These are only a few    Buck Russell: The Bad Guest Who Ultimately Wins You Over It's a common trope, but it's one that's easy to live with: guy shows up at your home, guy is not welcomed with open arms, guy ultimately...

Godzilla - Warner Bros. - Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD Director: Gareth Edwards Cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe. Full cast + crew Gareth Edwards' Godzilla movie is not going to be a home run for everyone. The human characters in it are a bit dry, and the titular monster himself is only on-screen in small doses until the end, and it's understandable if that turns off anyone hoping for this to be reaching Pacific Rim levels of constant, citywide carnage. But Godzilla just isn't trying to be like Pacific Rim. No, instead of an action extravaganza, Edwards and his team have reverted Godzilla to his roots as a force of sheer shock and awe. He exists as a titan of nature to put humanity...

What's so impressive about Gareth Edwards' Godzilla is that the director managed to make a modern monster movie that was littered with all sorts of nerdy nods to Godzilla's past, both on the big screen and in popular culture. However, it wasn't just Godzilla's history that was being referenced inside all the film's little nooks and crannies -- Godzilla also saved some room to pay tribute to other characters, too, like the ones played by its lead actors. Fans knew right from the film's "classified" opening-credits sequence that treats were being hidden, as each credit was delivered inside what appeared to be redacted military documents. While difficult to make out while watching on the big screen (because the text surrounding an actor's...

  Most audiences will be seeing the name “Wes Ball” for the first time as they head to theaters to watch The Maze Runner—an adaptation of James Dashner's 2009 book of the same name. The sci-fi tale finds a young boy named Thomas (Teen Wolf’s Dylan O'Brien) trapped in a strange community of all boys—all with no memory—where a mysterious maze forces them to plot a dangerous escape. The action-thriller is a big step away from the feel-good short film Ball made in 2002. A Work in Progress, which you can watch with us below, won the bronze for animation at the Student Academy Awards. Blending live action and 3D animation, A Work in Progress tells the story of a lonely girl who writes a heartfelt story about a lonely bear who tries to...

  Not all great filmmakers attended film school, but Martin Scorsese did. The experience changed his life. It was at New York University where Scorsese laid the groundwork for his future films with several short works—including What's a Nice Girl Like You Doing in a Place Like This? (1963), It's Not Just You, Murray! (1964) and The Big Shave (1967). The university’s Tisch School of the Arts invited the alumnus back to campus to give this year’s commencement speech. Scorsese shared several intimate stories about his time there, as well as his thoughts on filmmaking today. We hear the tale of his first days at school, where he hoped he could simply “be in an atmosphere where he could share a love for film.” It was at NYU where a...

As a family of four mourn the loss of their soldier son, a clean-cut, Gosling-faced stranger arrives at their front door claiming to be his best friend and fellow soldier. He's there because he says it's his duty; that he promised his buddy he'd let his family back home know that his final words included messages of love to his mother, father, sister and little brother. It was the right thing to do, and not long after he arrives chock-full of charm, he's asked to stay a couple of days until he figures out where he's going next. Until he gets back on his feet. Or until everyone around him is dead.  Welcome to The Guest. The logical progression of You're Next, The Guest finds director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett once again playing around...

Don’t look now, but Dan Aykroyd is back and he’s talking about Ghostbusters. The catch is this time he’s not just beating the drum for a third film in the beloved franchise – he’s here to talk about how he envisions Ghostbusters turning into its very own Marvel-styled cinematic universe. The actor was in London to promote his Crystal Head Vodka when he started talking about his other favorite topic, Ghostbusters. Aykroyd has become convinced that the best approach to all things ghostly isn’t to focus on a sequel, or a TV show, or a reboot with an all-female cast – it’s to focus on all of these things and more. “It’s beyond just another sequel, a prequel, another TV show. I'm thinking what does the whole brand mean to...
