The Full “Mockingjay: Part One” Trailer Is Here

The full trailer for "Mockingjay: Part One" is here and it looks a lot like Mockingjay the book: really, really, really not as good as the first two book in the Hunger Games series. (Sorry, Hollywood, I know you don't want to hear this.) In "Part One" -- "Mockingjay" has been split into two films --…

Stop What You’re Doing And Watch The Trailer For “Wild”

There's no movie I'm anticipating more this year than "Wild" starring Reese Witherspoon, the film adaptation of Cheryl Strayed's memoir. Like, Reese Witherspoon wearing no makeup and lots of flannel in a fucking bush.Wild is the story of Strayed's 1,100-mile solo hike along the Pacific Crest Trail as she struggles to leave behind…

Kristen Wiig And Bill Hader Play Messed-Up Brother And Sister In “The Skeleton Twins”

Kristen Wiig knocked it out of the park with "Bridesmaids," proving that she could fill movie theaters by running on funny. But contrary to what a lot of ex-"SNL" stars might do, she hasn't just made the same comedy over and over again. She played slightly more serious roles in "Friends With Kids" and "The…

How Does Marriage Work? In “112 Weddings,” A Wedding Videographer Tries To Explain

I got married very quickly: we had only been dating for five months. I didn't doubt that I'd found the man I wanted to spend my life with, but I did feel confused in the weeks and months after we'd gotten hitched what marriage was supposed to mean and if so, how should we make it…

“The Giver” Trailer Is Out & It’s Kinda Underwhelming

I've been waiting for Lois Lowry's YA novel The Giver to be made into a movie ever since I was a kid reading the book 100 times. It's not until my adulthood that I got my wish and I have to say, judging from today's trailer, disappointment.  I know it is just a…

“ANITA” Documentary Explores Anita Hill’s Sexual Harassment Nightmare

Many Frisky readers are too young to remember the 1991 Supreme Court confirmation hearing of Clarence Thomas, then a federal circuit judge. One name you might recall is Anita Hill. She was the Black woman who came forward to publicly testify that Thomas, her boss at the Department of Education and the EEOC, had sexually…

The Trailer For The Lizzie Borden Lifetime Movie Starring Christina Ricci Has Arrived

In case you were wondering, Christina Ricci is still — somehow — utterly ageless. As as for her Lifetime original movie, "Lizze Bordon Took An Ax,"  well, I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions. [The Mary Sue]…

Frisky Movie Review: “After Tiller” — On Women And The Abortion Providers Who Trust Them

A few months ago, I chatted with a newly pregnant friend over ice cream. Eventually, after we exhausted the areas of the politics of maternity leave and the excitement of decorating her baby’s room, our conversation turned to reproductive choice. Specifically, we talked about her decision to terminate her pregnancy if she and her husband…

Nicole Kidman Is A Pretty, Pretty Princess In “Grace Of Monaco”

Princesses are so hot right now, what with their pretty hair and pretty clothes and ... um .... that's it. Unfortunately, Warner Brothers couldn't think of much else to tease about Princess Grace — otherwise known as the actress Grace Kelly — in the trailer for their forthcoming biopic, "Grace Of Monaco." Grace Kelly wo…

Check Out This Trailer For The Calvin And Hobbes Documentary, “Dear Mr. Watterson”

Calvin And Hobbes was everything in my childhood. Everything. I read the strip every day in the my parents' newspaper and had all the Calvin And Hobbes books. Okay, they were my brother's books and I stole them, but that's besides the point. I loved to pretend that my teddy bear, Gregory, could come alive…

Trailer Park: “The Mechanic,” “Kaboom,” “From Prada To Nada”

I'm not gonna lie to you guys—this week's movie offerings are slender. But maybe that's a good thing since you probably need time to catch up on all the Oscar contenders anyway. Still—if you like hitmen, exorcisms, college hookups, or shopping malls, you might find something to your taste arriving in theaters this weekend.

Trailer Park: “No Strings Attached,” “The Way Back,” “The Housemaid, “Applause”

In the midst of awards season, you would think that the movies coming out now would be palate cleansers—lightweight feel-good movies that aren't necessarily vying for recognition. But some of this week's movies, the foreign ones in particular, are totally killing it. So get thee to an indie theater and shake off some of that…

Trailer Park: “The Dilemma,” “The Green Hornet,” “Barney’s Version,” “Every Day,” “Burning Palms”

I know a movie wouldn't be interesting if it was about a marriage where neither part wanted to cheat on the other, but what's with the movies this week? They're all about sordid people doing their sordid deeds, seemingly unaware of the destruction they bring to their loved ones. I guess this is how Hollywood…

Trailer Park: “Season Of The Witch,” “The Absent,” “Phil Ochs: There But Of Fortune”

It's a whole new year in the movie theater and I wish I could say that we're starting it off with a bang, but unfortunately the biggest movie hitting the screens this week is "Season of the Witch." Fortunately for you, there are some great looking indie flicks and a bunch of super awesome movie…

Trailer Park: “True Grit,” “Somewhere,” “Country Strong,” “Little Fockers,” “Gulliver’s Travels”

Who are you kidding, you know perfectly well that when you've run out of presents to open on Christmas Day (or you don't celebrate Christmas) and you've run out of stuff to argue about with your family, that you're going to want to see a movie. Fortunately, there are some pretty decent movies coming out…

Trailer Park: “TRON: Legacy,” “Yogi Bear,” “How Do You Know,” “Casino Jack,” “Frankie & Alice”

We're a week away from Christmas, but you might notice that there aren't any Christmas movies coming out this year. Yeah, it's cause we totally didn't go to the ones they made last year. Don't fret though! Instead of watching another movie about some schmuck becoming Santa Claus, there are two Jeff Bridge…

Trailer Park: “The Fighter,” “The Tourist,” “The Chronicles of Narnia,” And “The Tempest”

This week's movies are like that period in music when bands all started putting "The" in front of a noun and making that the name of their band. I guess it sounds like more of a declaration or something. Or a claiming of whatever particular noun. Whatever it is, it's pissing me off. Just kidding.

Trailer Park: “Black Swan,” “I Love You Phillip Morris,” “All Good Things,” “The Warrior’s Way”

Baby, it's cold outside. And I know you'd like nothing more than to stay in with some hot cocoa and a cuddle buddy, but you've got so much to do. There are presents to buy, grocery stores to pillage, decorations to put up and, as always, movies to see! And while there might not be…

Happy Thanksgiving weekend! You know perfectly well that this is the perfect time to catch a movie, because (a) if you don't leave the house, you're never going to stop eating leftovers and (b) you've had enough family time and it's a great excuse to get some peace and quiet. Thankfully for you, there…
