This Week In Trailers: It Happened in L.A., Conor McGregor: Notorious, Sweet Virginia, The Ballad of Lefty Brown, Most Beautiful Island

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we visit with some vapid LA types, watch a different and troubling kind of immigrant story, go beyond the hype surrounding Conor McG...

Original Content podcast: Marvel’s ‘Inhumans’ are here, and they’re very cheesy

 We’re breaking the rules a little for this one. While TechCrunch’s Original Content podcast is focused on new shows and movies from streaming services like Hulu and Netflix, we’ve also gone out of our way to remind listeners that Inhumans, the new Marvel series airing on ABC, looks very bad.

‘Snake Outta Compton’ Trailer: That Title Makes Any Description Redundant, Really

Look. The title of Snake Outta Compton is either going to wrinkle your nose like you just smelled something rotten or turn the ends of your mouth upwards ever-so-slightly because you can’t help but admire this kind of audacious lunacy. I find myself in the latter camp but won’t deny anyone the chance to take one look at the movie and flee. That’s okay. The rest of us will hang out here and watch the Snake Outta Compton trailer – which features a giant snake terrorizing Compton, of course – and ...

10 Years Later, the Ending of ‘No Country for Old Men’ is More Powerful Than Ever

It has been almost a decade since No Country for Old Men, the seismic film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s novel, first went into limited release in the United States. Directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, the winner of the Best Picture Oscar for 2007 is simultaneously steeped in genre tropes and highly unconventional. I still remember hearing the lady in front of me at the local indie theater jeer “That’s it? Boo!” as the closing credits rolled. In a way, the film’s plot acts as a Trojan Horse, ...

I also saw a few others, and will be watching more over the weekend. I’ll be posting 140-character thoughts about those on Twitter @bscritic and on Facebook through Sunday. 1....

‘Geostorm’ Reviews Quotes Make This Disaster Movie Sound Like a Must-See

Geostorm has had a rough road to the big screen. The Dean Devlin-directed disaster movie was shot back in 2014 but after some reportedly awful test screenings, the film underwent massive and expensive reshoots and was delayed all the way until today, when it finally stumbled into theaters without press screenings or even Thursday night showings in most markets. Sounds bad, right? Well, the reviews have arrived, and while the movie’s 18% Rotten Tomatoes score might seem dire, some of the reviews...

For tonight’s mayhem, let’s start with the very first episode of Boris Karloff’s anthology series Thriller. It’s very useful if you’re allowing TV episodes for Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, since you can link up Karloff with people like, say, Shatner. This is “The Twisted Image,” starring Leslie Nielsen, George Grizzard, and Natalie Trundy. Then we come to tonight’s feature, Nightmare Castle.
