The coming of age movie follows plenty of familiar tropes, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be one well. A couple years back, we had the winning and refreshing “The Edge Of Seventeen,” which felt genuinely authentic to the teena…

Sometimes a movie that comes along that has so many good ingredients, you really hope it meets the potential. That’s the case with “Flower,” led by rising star Zoey Deutch (“Everybody Wants Some!!“) and directed by Max Win…

Back in 1990, John Ritter had to deal with his “Problem Child,” but we’d argue his character probably wouldn’t trade places with Adam Scoot. The “Party Down” and “Parks & Recreation” star will have his own hellraiser to face in the upcoming “Little Evil.” From writer/director Eli Craig (“Tucker and Dale vs Evil“), the film co-stars Evangeline Lilly, Tyler Labine, Donald Faison, and Owen Atlas, and follows an earnest man and his uneasy relationship with his stepson, who just happens to be the antichrist.

In college, whipping out your DVD of “Wet Hot American Summer ” was the best way to notify people of your inherent awesomeness, and carefully monitoring the reactions of others to the said whipping out was the best way to find other, equally awesome people. Sure, pretty much every hipster millennial has jumped on the bandwagon since, but can you really blame them? It was and remains an amazing and hilarious movie.

You might not have known it, but “Fun Mom Dinner” played the Sundance Film Festival in January, and the distinct lack of buzz is probably telling. However, if you can’t wait until “Bad Moms Christmas” to fill that sweet spot of ladies having a wild time, perhaps this’ll do the trick. Toni Collette, Molly Shannon, Bridget Everett, and Katie Aselton come together for this familiar sounding story of four Moms who take a break from their daily routine to have a night out, and of course, things get of hand.

Just when you thought you had caught up on your Peak TV viewing, here comes “Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later.” The followup to ‘First Day Of Camp’ drops viewers in the wild world of the 1990s, and it looks like fans are gonna have a blast. The absolutely massive returning cast — A.D. Miles, Amy Poehler, Beth Dover, Chris Meloni, Chris Pine, David Hyde Pierce, David Wain, Elizabeth Banks, Eric Nenninger, H. Continue reading First Trailer For ‘Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later’ Jumps Into The 1990s at The Playlist.

A charming and blissful look at the joys and pains of a bravado-flecked reckless youth, director Max Winkler’s “Flower” is an earnest coming-of-age pic mixing cheeky sass will full-bodied teenage angst and beaming vitality. And it’s also an untamed dark comedy that veers off to unexpected places that reveal disturbing edges. If there’s a movie that can pull off the cool insouciance of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “Clueless” and Diablo Cody, and successfully mix it with the seemingly incongruous realist sensibilities of “Fish Tank” or the films of Andrea Arnold in general, “Flower” is it.

As Donald Trump has shown, it takes a particular brand of awfulness to really galvanize an entire nation (and citizens around the globe) against you. And while Madalyn Murray O’Hair didn’t quite attract the same level of vitriol, she definitely earned the title “The Most Hated Woman In America.” Starring Melissa Leo, Josh Lucas, Adam Scott, Vincent Kartheiser and Juno Temple, and directed by Tommy O’Haver (“Ella Enchanted,” “An American Crime“), the film follows O’Hair who’s atheist activist put her right in the middle of the cultural conversation during the ’60s. Continue reading Melissa Leo Is ‘The Most Hated Woman In America’ In New Trailer For True Crime Biopic at The Playlist.

While the cancelled-too-soon “Togetherness” showed us the warm dysfunction of middle-class, middle-age life in Eagle Rock, California, HBO turns the tables, taking viewers up the coast to Monterey for “Big Little Lies” where more money means deadlier problems. At a surface glance, the adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s novel might seem stridently unrelatable, showcasing a community where many of the lead characters live in gorgeous, huge homes overlooking the ocean, but it soon unravels into something richer, without dulling the knife edge thrills, darkly comic tone, and twisty plot developments worthy of well written beach read.
