Movie Review: The Hunger Games

March 22, 2012
Movie Review: The Hunger Games

Fans of “The Hunger Games” book will find themselves thrilled by director Gary Ross’s very faithful film adaptation. Ross has managed to depict Suzanne Collins’ vision with eerie precision, nailing the look of the glum and socially repressed districts as well as the opulence and excess of the Capitol. It’s clear he took the...

Movie Review: ‘The Artist’ Shannon’s Take

Movie Review: ‘The Artist’ Shannon’s Take

I’ve been frantically trying to catch up on every movie that I should see before Oscar night, but for some reason, I have continuously shovedThe Artist to the bottom of the screener pile for months. I found it difficult to conjure up much enthusiasm for a film that is not only silent but filmed entirely in black...

Movie Review: ‘The Innkeepers’

Movie Review: ‘The Innkeepers’

Note: Since The Innkeepers is in limited release this weekend, we’re re-running Shannon’s original review from SXSW 2011. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.  Ti West struck gold with horror fans when House of the Devil came out in 2009. Devil was a fitting throwback to the horror films of the ’80s, and West proved to be a...

Movie Review: A Dangerous Method

January 27, 2012
Movie Review: A Dangerous Method

David Cronenberg has always been drawn to psychologically challenging material, especially when it has to do with breaking societal taboos. Flip through his filmography (Videodrome, The Fly, Dead Ringers, Naked Lunch, Crash) and you’ll see some seriously depraved stuff. He has mellowed substantially in recent years (The History of Violence, Eastern Promises), but thankfully,...

Movie Review: The Grey

January 27, 2012
Movie Review: The Grey

January is usually known as an arid wasteland for new film releases. Studios dump all the films that weren’t good enough for awards consideration, and the results are not pretty. My expectations for The Grey were tempered accordingly. I expected a campy creature-feature, nothing more. What I got instead was a complex, touching and...

Movie Review: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

January 20, 2012
Movie Review: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

I suspect this film will be quite polarizing for audiences, but not for the reasons you may think. Though Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close takes place in the days, weeks and months following 9/11, it is essentially devoid of controversy or political overtones. The tragedy serves as a catalyst for the story of one...

Movie Review: Carnage

January 13, 2012
Movie Review: Carnage

Remember back in the day when MTV’s The Real World was all the rage? I waited every week with bated breath to see what shenanigans would occur when people “stopped being polite and started getting real.” That tagline is a pretty good synopsis of Carnage, a biting drama directed by Roman Polanski. The film takes...

Happy New Years Eve!

Happy New Years Eve!

Happy News Years Eve, everyone. In honor of the day, we are posting this super cute video that Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon Levitt made together. It’s stinkin’ adorable. The two have been friends for quite some time, and starred in 500 Days of Summer a few years ago. The song is entitled “What...

Movie Review: War Horse

December 25, 2011
Movie Review: War Horse

Upon watching a trailer for War Horse a few months ago, my first thought was, “I will never be able to see that movie.” I’ve heard that many grown men have been reduced to openly sobbing while watching the play (that used puppets, for God’s sakes). How on earth could I make it through...
