  1. Jessica Chastain Wants to Know Why the Hell Scarlett Johansson Hasn’t Gotten a Superhero Movie Yet

    Yes, none of us really appreciate the "10% of your brain" thing, or the possible racial issues which may come into play in Luc Besson's Lucy, but I'm pretty sure the only thing that will be running through my mind when seeing this film will be, "Black Widow, Black Widow, Black Widow, Black Widow, Black Widow."

  9. Captain America: The Winter Soldier Delivers Big Ideas, Bigger Explosions

    Review

    Whether punching out Hitler or hanging up his shield, Captain America has always been a barometer for America’s political atmosphere, a reliable gauge for what’s on the minds of the nation. In his latest adventure, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he is again, standing as a voice of reason in a high-octane action drama that concerns itself with the all-too-pertinent debate of freedom versus security. Those who found the first Cap adventure distasteful in its hamminess will be pleased to know that CA:TWS contains nothing of the kind, being a grim-faced thrill ride with no time to talk and no room for cheese. The jokes in Winter Soldier are spare and barely land, a testament to the film’s hard edge. But, unlike some of its dark-and-gritty peers in the superhero genre, a touch of darkness serves this sequel well, working for its covert ops setting instead of against it. Is the price of knowing SPOILERS a price you’re willing to pay?

  10. Review: Scarlett Johansson’s Under The Skin Has A Special Message For Men

    In the chilling science-fiction thriller Under The SkinThe Avengers' Scarlett Johansson plays a black widow of another kind. She's an extraterrestrial predator. With a camouflage of plump red lips, snug fitting acid washed jeans, a curvy figure and a battered van, she trolls the streets of Scotland looking for would-be lovers. But when she lures them back to her lair, these men discover they are just fresh meat in the literal sense. On its surface, this feature is a slick and sick bit of horror. But under the skin it is a lesson in rape culture targeted specifically at men. The gender dynamics of horror typically play out with killers being male and their victims being female. Under The Skin turns the tables on this traditional setup, and with it creates a reverse of contemporary rape culture where violence against women is so common that women are casually warned to be ever alert for those who might harm them. In rape culture, the blame for what might befall women is thereby put on their shoulders in place of their potential rapist. By and large men don't worry about their safety in the same way when walking home late at night. But in the world of Under The Skin, they absolutely should. As this review explores specific themes of the movie, heavy spoilers for Under The Skin lurk below:
