New to The Quorum: AMBULANCE

Jake Gyllenhaal? Great! Yahya Abdul-Mateen II? Very cool. Eiza González? Awesome. Director Michael Bay? That’s the question mark isn’t it? Listen, either you love Bay’s movies or you don’t. There is no middle ground. Or perhaps there is. Based on the 2005 Danish film AMBULANCE, this looks to be a considerably smaller affair than Bay’s […]

Back in 2013, Warner Bros. reinvented the month of October. See, the studio was looking for a home for Alfonso Cuarón’s GRAVITY.

Will OLD continue M. Night Shyamalan’s hot streak?

Or will OLD usher in another down period for the filmmaker? It’s fair to say that sequels are often referendums on the films that came before. If the last movie was a dud, the follow-up will likely see a decline at the box office. If the previous film was great, the sequel will probably do as […]

On top of that, they were all nominated for roles that required singing.  On the flip side, you’ve got Cher, Barbra Streisand, […]
