Movie Review: Mother’s Day

In honor of Mother’s Day, here’s my review of the aptly titled horror flick Mother’s Day. Looking for the perfect film to watch with mom this weekend?  I assure you, this is not it. Well, unless your mom is like me, and seeks out any depraved movie she can get her hands on. In...

Movie Review: The Five-Year Engagement

April 27, 2012
Movie Review: The Five-Year Engagement

Last year we were bombarded by a slew of raunchy rated-R comedies (Hangover 2, Horrible Bosses, Bad Teacher, Bridesmaids, The Change-Up, etc.) that tried to one-up one another with gross-out gags and sexual escapades. After a while, they all started to blend together. Different movie, same old shtick.  I expected more of the same...

Movie Review: The Raid: Redemption

Indonesian thriller The Raid: Redemption is that rare action film that is a treat to watch. Brutal, visceral, thrilling and gory, Raid is a juggernaut of taut action masterfully delivered to the screen. It’s an exhilarating watch that leaves you breathless from the onslaught of non-stop fighting, and it is awesome. Most films boast...

Movie Review: American Reunion

April 6, 2012
Movie Review: American Reunion

American Reunion is the fourth installment in the American Pie franchise, and since it takes place a decade after the first one, you kind of expect the team to step up to the plate, and bring something new to the genre. Nah, that would be too hard.  Why be original when you can recycle...

Movie Review: Natural Selection

April 3, 2012
Movie Review: Natural Selection

When Natural Selection made the festival rounds last year, the film quickly became a darling of sorts, picking up various awards and accolades from discerning audiences and critics alike. Considering the fact that the film was made on a shoestring budget by a first-time director (Robbie Pickering), that’s no small feat. Now that the...

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,...
