'Seven Psychopaths'
Star Rating:         That Seven Psychopaths is twisted, there can be no question. As to whether or not it’s successful, that’s open for debate. Here is a movie …

Alex Cross
Star Rating:         Alex Cross doesn’t work as a film, although it does prove that Tyler Perry can be a successful leading man in projects he has no creative and/or …

Paranormal Activity 4 (2012 film)
Star Rating:         Paranormal Activity 4 is a contrived, unoriginal, unmotivated effort that cruelly belabors an already exhausted premise. This comes after I begrudgingly …

posted in Movie Hype
Bigfoot: The Lost Coast Tapes
Star Rating:         Of the countless imitators The Blair Witch Project has spawned, Bigfoot: The Lost Coast Tapes is probably the closest there is to a full-blown rip off. …

Frankenweenie
Star Rating:         Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie, a feature-length remake of his 1984 live-action short, is likely to ignite debate over how appropriate it is for younger …

Taken 2

Looper
Star Rating:         Looper is one of the few time travel fables that didn’t have me scratching my head in utter confusion. Writer/director Rian Johnson doesn’t …

posted in Movie Hype
Solomon Kane
Star Rating:         Solomon Kane is a film divided, at odds with itself over the need to be equal parts a morality play and a sword-and-sorcery action/adventure film. Although …

posted in Movie Hype
Dredd
Star Rating:         One of the biggest complaints fans had with 1995’s Judge Dredd was that the title character, played by Sylvester Stallone, wasn’t wearing …

posted in Movie Hype
Brawler
Star Rating:         The exact words used to describe Brawler are, “Based on true events,” and for all I know, this is the case. I haven’t been able to …

10 Years

The Cold Light of Day
Star Rating:         In the annals of spy thrillers, there is no MacGuffin more reliable than a briefcase with unknown contents. The Cold Light of Day features such a MacGuffin …

[REC] 3: Genesis
Star Rating:         I have not seen every zombie movie ever made, but I’m fairly sure there has never been one in which the zombies are stopped dead in their tracks …
reviewed Branded (2012 Film). September 10, 2012
posted in Movie Hype
Branded
Star Rating:         Branded makes a strong case for why wonky conspiracy theories should never, ever serve as the foundation of a screenplay. This movie is bizarre, self …

posted in Movie Hype
For a Good Time, Call...
Star Rating:         For a Good Time, Call... exemplifies yet again why female-driven raunchy comedies tend to work better than those that are male-driven. If you think about …

posted in Movie Hype
Lawless
Star Rating:         Lawless is a triumph of tone and setting, the gritty underworld of prohibition-era Virginia examined with meticulous and sometimes painful detail. This …

Premium Rush
Star Rating:         Premium Rush is one hell of a ride – an action thriller, a chase spectacle, a mystery, and a tale of international intrigue all rolled into one …
reviewed The Apparition (2012 film). August 25, 2012
posted in Movie Hype
The Apparition
Star Rating:         The ads for The Apparition tell us it’s about how believing in supernatural events can make them real. The finished film, on the other hand, never …

Robot & Frank
Star Rating:         Robot & Frank is a wasted opportunity, the chance to intelligently examine the scientific and ethical notions of robotics disregarded in favor of …

The Expendables 2
Star Rating:         Watching The Expendables 2, I was repeatedly reminded of the Julie Brown single “I Like ‘em Big and Stupid,” a 1980s synthpop novelty …
reviewed ParaNorman. August 20, 2012

ParaNorman
Star Rating:         Nine times out of ten, debating a film’s appropriateness for children is utterly pointless. But in the case of ParaNorman, a 3D stop-motion animated …

The Watch
Star Rating:         Last summer saw the release of Jon Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens, a film that quite inexplicably found the right balance between a science fiction …

Sacrifice [赵氏孤儿] (2010 movie)
Star Rating:         The premise of Sacrifice does not sit well with me, but then again, perhaps that was the intention. Taking place in ancient China, it tells the melodramatic …

Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai (Ichimei)
Star Rating:         True to current cinematic trends, Takashi Miike’s Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai has been released in 3D. There’s no real reason this process …

Savages
Star Rating:         Although the convoluted plot, the shocking depictions of violence, and the heavy reliance on dialogue and character all suggest a rich, complicated film, …
reviewed Ted (2012 film). July 02, 2012
posted in Movie Hype
Ted
Star Rating:         Going into Ted, I fully expected a raunchy comedy. What I wasn’t at all expecting was a very sweet, very compelling coming of age story, one that …

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World
Star Rating:         Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is nowhere near as funny as it has been made to seem, which actually works in its favor. The film is at its …

'That's My Boy' Starring Adam Sandler
Star Rating:         Why do I go into Adam Sandler movies with the hope that each new offering will be the one that redeems him as an actor, a writer, and a producer? You’d …

Your Sister's Sister
Star Rating:         Up until now, whenever I said that a film is like a sitcom, I always meant it in a negative context. I now realize how shortsighted that was on my part, …
