+Chappie Movie is something else. Sometimes I wonder how movies like this get made. #awesome  
Chappie, out on Blu-ray now, may be a mess, but it has a strange kind of staying power, amidst all the madness.

I hated this as much as I liked it but all in all was disappointed. How rad COULD Chappie have been? Makes me sad to think about it.

With this new Criterion Blu-ray (and DVD) reissue, Ride the Pink Horse should take its place among the film noir genre as one of the greats.

+American Sniper may be opening wide on Friday, these movies about badass #NavySEALs  are available for you to watch right now!
This week sees the wide release of director Clint Eastwood’s newest film, American Sniper, which concerns itself with the story of real-life U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. Hollywood has showcased the Navy’s premiere Special Forces squad in dozens of films throughout the years, yet a few portrayals have stood out as particularly memorable. Today’s list is a celebration of the movies that took the time to feature Navy SEALS in a badass fashion.
