The "Freaky Friday" body-switch gimmick is given a gory, R-rated twist in "Freaky," a deliciously cheesy horror-comedy hitting theaters this Friday.
It's the latest documentary from Werner Herzog, which might be enough of a reason for his fans to see it. For everyone else, it's fairly straight-forward documentary about the impact (no pun intended) that meteors have had on this planet, and on human civilization, over the centuries.
Based on the best-selling memoir from author J.D. Vance, "Hillbilly Elegy" is so vanilla you can almost taste it. But mixed in are two performances that will surely generate some buzz come Oscar season...assuming there is an Oscar season.
You can tell that "The Climb" started as a short-film. When extended into a full feature, "The Climb" begins to feel like an uphill struggle, despite some clever and sometimes hilarious detours along the way.
Ho Ho Holy Shit...is that Mel Gibson playing Santa Claus? If you're already offended at the notion of Gibson as Cringle, then "Fatman" is definitely not for you. However, in its own deliberate gonzo sort of way, "Fatman" is perhaps one of the freshest - and bloodiest - takes on a holiday film in quite a long time.
Kevin Costner and Diane Lane last appeared on-screen together as Ma and Pa Kent in the recent Superman film, "Man of Steel." They team up again in the tense drama "Let Him Go" as grieving grandparents whose only care in the world is their missing grandson, and each other.
This time, it's their turn to be super.

Just nominated for a leading FIVE Critics Choice Documentary Awards, including "Best Documentary Feature," "Mr. SOUL!" is a story about one of the most important and influential TV shows of a generation, and the man who put the soul in SOUL!.
"Come Play" continues a long-standing Hollywood tradition of releasing dumb, disposable (re: cheaply made) horror films on or around Halloween weekend. Even within a genre that often asks the viewer to suspend their disbelief near the point of exhaustion, "Come Play," stands out as a special kind of ridiculousness.
"On the Rocks" is so satisfyingly simple, that it just might be one of the most delicious films of the year.
