Movie Review: Sinister

Let me begin this review with a quick public service announcement. If you intend to see Sinister, for God’s sake don’t watch the trailer. It will suck the scares right out of the movie. When I see a horror movie, I want to feel frightened. I want to hunker down in my seat, biting...

Movie Review: Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding

June 12, 2012
Movie Review: Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding

Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding is a fairly rote piece of fluff, but exemplary performances by the talented cast make the film worth a watch.  Catherine Keener stars as Diane, an icy and uptight lawyer who has just found out her husband wants a divorce. This event serves as the impetus for her to visit...

Movie Review: Sound of My Voice

Movie Review: Sound of My Voice

One of the most fascinating films I saw at SXSW 2011 was an indie film called Sound of My Voice.  The premise is modest-an aspiring pair of filmmakers decide they want to infiltrate a cult they have learned about, presumably to expose the leader as being full of crap. She claims to be from...

Movie Review: The Hunger Games

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: Young Adult

December 16, 2011
Movie Review: Young Adult

Larry David. Seinfeld. Ben Stiller’s Greenberg. The entire cast of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Billy Bob Thornton’s Bad Santa.  They are all unlikable misanthropes, but now they’re getting some stiff competition from Mavis (Charlize Theron), a bitchy beauty skating by on her sunny good looks when she is rotten to the core on...
