MoviePass Played by Silicon Valley’s Insane Rules

MoviePass, whose subscribers pay a month fee to see an unlimited number of movies in most theaters in America, appears to be circling the drain. On Friday, the service temporarily shut down after the company ran out of cash amid a flood of Mission: Impossible – Fallout ticket sales. Over the next few days, MoviePass’s […]

I Rewatched ‘The Hobbit’ to Figure Out Why Movies Have Gotten So Ugly

Screencaps via Warner Bros. Welcome to One More Time, the column where writers revisit and review the movies they walked out of in theaters.

MoviePass is back, but some folks are over it. What other options are there?

MoviePass introduced us all to a new way of catching movies in theaters, and now the service’s almost-demise has changed the landscape once again.

Liam Neeson’s Stunt Double Taught Me a Particular Set of Skills

When I was approached by my editor about receiving fight scene training from Liam Neeson’s body double, I immediately thought of the movie star’s character from Taken, Bryan Mills. As a writer, I don’t have too much in common with a former special agent on the hunt for his kidnapped daughter. But, just as Mills […]

‘Mission: Impossible’ is only the tip of an iceberg that could sink MoviePass

MoviePass is a great idea that only works if its “see all movies in theaters” promise can be fulfilled. Unfortunately for subscribers interested in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, that wasn’t the case over the weekend.

Photo: Tiffany Rose (Getty Images) Michael B. Jordan’s time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is probably over, barring some flashback scenes in the Black Panther sequel or a weird side effect of the snap heard ’round existence at the end of Avengers: Infinity War.
