The Latest Movie Reviews
'Focus' Is A Sexy Con Movie That's A Little Too Neat
Production: Writing: 
The con man movie is a tricky genre, if only because the audience enters the theater with the expectation nothing is what it seems. As a result, it's rare that a film can pull the veil over the average moviegoer's eyes enough for them not to see the twist (or twists) coming. Fail, and the film is written off as...

'The Lazarus Effect' Should Come With A Do-Not-Resuscitate Order
Production: Scary Factor: 
On paper, The Lazarus Effect should be good. It's got a cool concept about re-animating the dead, a couple of bankable stars in Mark Duplass (Safety Not Guaranteed, "The League") and Olivia Wilde (Cowboys & Aliens, Third Person), and the power of horror mavericks Blumhouse Productions and Lionsgate Studios....

'Leviathan' Is The Feel-Bad Movie Of The Winter
Production: Cinematography: 
Russians have the reputation of being big drinkers, and if Leviathan is even a semi-accurate portrayal of real life in the country, it's easy to see why. Leviathan focuses on an underemployed man named Kolya (Aleksey Serebryakov from Cargo 200) who lives in a small town in Russia with his wife, Lilya (Elena...

'Gett: The Trial Of Viviane Amsalem' Is Not Just Another Standard Courtroom Drama
Production: Cinematography: 
In Israel, matrimony is a tricky subject. There is no such thing as a civil marriage, and all marriages must be performed and legitimized by a religious leader, usually a Rabbi. Of course, divorces are equally complicated; a dissolution of a marriage can also only be granted by a Rabbi, and only with the full...

'The DUFF' Is A Modern Teen Comedy That's DULL
Production: Comedy Factor: 
Every few years a teen comedy comes around that tries to be the next Breakfast Club or Mean Girls - an insightful look at the modern dynamics of the high school teenager. But for every successful film, there's even more that stumble for one reason or another. The DUFF stumbles, and it does so despite a generally...

'Hot Tub Time Machine 2': Wasted Time
Production: Comedy Factor: 
While plenty enjoyed the first Hot Tub Time Machine, it seemed pretty clear that the general consensus put the film in the "kind of funny" category. Not boring enough to be a complete train wreck, but not original enough with its humor to be an instant classic. Clearly, though, enough people liked the film, or...

With 'Digging Up The Marrow,' Adam Green Makes A "Good" Found Footage Movie
Production: Special Effects: 
Scary Factor: 
The idea for Digging Up the Marrow was spawned out of the real-life experiences of director Adam Green. Among other things, Green is the man behind the Hatchet franchise of horror movies, and in 2010 he received a letter from a fan who claimed that Victor Crowley, the disfigured antagonist from Hatchet, was real....

'The Last Five Years' Is A Romance Made For The Bitter, And The Sappy
Production: Score & Soundtrack: 
For the last thirteen or fourteen years, musical theater writer/composer Jason Robert Brown's simple-yet-emotionally effective The Last Five Years has been toiling away around the world, even playing to Off-Broadway crowds. As is the case with all good musicals, a movie adaptation was bound to happen, and in...

'What We Do In The Shadows' Provides More Laughs Than Screams, But Still Has Plenty Of Bite
Production: Cinematography: 
Comedy Factor: Scary Factor: 
Out of all of the iconic horror movie monsters, vampires are the campiest. As such, they lend themselves well to comedic films as well as horror movies. Vampires have historically found themselves at the center of laugh-fests like Love at First Bite, Once Bitten, and Dracula: Dead and Loving It. Even serious...

'Kingsman: The Secret Service' Is Slick Spy Action With A Hard Edge
Production: Action Sequences: 
Some call Kingsman: The Secret Service James Bond on steroids, others call it a modern video game inspired spy caper, and others absolutely rubbish. All have a point, but few will be able to easily dismiss the film. Kingsman: The Secret Service bursts in with a brash attitude and a slick style, and while it may...

'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Is Destined For Life As A Cult Classic Midnight Movie
Production: Score & Soundtrack: 
The novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" by E.L. James has sold 60 million copies worldwide and has been translated into 52 languages. What started as internet fan fiction based on the "Twilight" books has blown up into an international phenomenon. Of course, with buzz like that, Hollywood was bound to come calling,...

The Visual Beauty of 'The Duke Of Burgundy' More Than Makes Up For Its Lack Of Plot
Production: Cinematography: 
Score & Soundtrack: 
Writer/director Peter Strickland's Berberian Sound Studio was somewhat of a sleeper hit, but it had a very slow climb to success. After being rejected by all of the big-name festivals, Strickland had an epiphany; he wanted to make something that was bare bones and low budget yet still paid tribute to the influential...

'Jupiter Ascending' Fails To Rise Above Generic Sci-Fi Fare
Production: Action Sequences: 
With Jupiter Ascending, the Wachowskis have returned to the genre that made them household names, but with a bolder, fantastical vision. Where The Matrix may have been a sci-fi tale, Jupiter Ascending incorporates elements that blur the line between believability and imagination. It's easily their most ambitious...

Julianne Moore's Masterful Performance Anchors 'Still Alice,' A Film That Is As Heartfelt As It Is Heartbreaking
Production: Writing: 
Acting: Cinematography: 
Some movies are horrifying without meaning to be. Over the course of crafting a heartfelt and meaningful narrative, they will remind the viewer of their own fragility and mortality. Still Alice is this kind of movie. Still Alice stars Julianne Moore (Boogie Nights, Children of Men) as Dr. Alice Howland,...

'Black Sea' Packs A Ton Of Suspense And Intrigue Into A Tiny Little Submarine
Production: Acting: 
Although director Kevin Macdonald has had great success with narrative features like The Last King of Scotland and How I Live Now, he is still regarded as a great documentary filmmaker because of his work on non-fiction films like Marley and One Day in September. His knack for storytelling coupled with his penchant...

Frame Of Mind

Red ArmyWhen sports fans think about dynasties, there are certain names that come to mind.  The New York Yankees have dominated Major League Baseball for nearly a hundred years.  The Chicago Bulls of the nineties ruled the basketball courts.  The National Football League’s San Francisco 49ers won five Super Bowls in the eighties and early nineties.  But perhaps the most successful dynasty of all time worked its magic on the ice, and we’re not talking about the Montreal Canadiens.  For a long time, the most feared hockey team on the planet was the USSR Men’s National Ice Hockey Team, and they are the subject of a fascinating new documentary called Red Army.

RagewarIn the horror world, low-budget movies are just as much (if not more) fun than their big Hollywood brethren.  Amongst the modern B-Movie pioneers are a number of influential auteurs who have paved the way for those who have come later.  Guys like Roger Corman (A Bucket of Blood, Bloody Mama) and Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger) have proven that anyone with a little creativity and a lot of perseverance can make movies.  Another one of these guys is Charles Band, whose production company Empire Pictures, and later Full Moon Pictures, has been behind great movies like Crawlspace and Tourist Trap.  As a director, one of Band’s more ambitious ideas involved getting together with six other directors to make a not-really-an-anthology anthology movie called Ragewar.

Swamp ThingHollywood lost another one of its shining stars this last weekend when Louis Jourdan, the debonair French character actor, passed away at the age of 93.  Throughout his long and storied career, Jourdan worked with Hitchcock, played Count Dracula, and lent his voice talents to Scooby-Doo cartoons.  He is best known to movie fans as the suave leading man in the musical Gigi and the villain in the Bond film Octopussy, but the horror community remembers him for another role; in 1982, Jourdan played the antagonistic Dr. Arcane in Swamp Thing.

eXistenZDavid Cronenberg successfully transitioned from low-budget sci-fi horror to “legitimate” filmmaking with A History of Violence in 2005.  Although Cronenberg is now known as a big Hollywood moviemaker with reputable films like Eastern Promises and A Dangerous Method on his resume, horror fans will always remember the man for his early films, slimy science fiction body-horror movies like The Brood and Scanners.  The last really weird movie he made, in 1999, was eXistenZ.

Body PartsThey say that there are only so many story ideas to go around, and that everything is influenced by something else.  This theory is never more true than when it is applied to horror films, where even the best slasher or haunted house movie is indicative of an earlier movie; let’s face it – Devil’s Due is basically Rosemary’s Baby and Ouija is essentially Witchboard.  Some are pretty obvious (basically, all vampire movies can be traced back to Nosferatu), but many are subtle.  In 1931, Universal Studios made the definitive version of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, turning Boris Karloff into a horror legend.  Sixty years later, in 1991, one of the more clever variations of the Frankenstein tale was unleashed upon an unsuspecting public when Body Parts was released.

The NestOne of the most effective things that a horror movie can do is take a seemingly innocuous presence and turn it into something frightening.  A popular subject for this treatment is insects; everyone sees them every day without much thought, but when a movie makes them go haywire, it’s terrifying.  Whether it is ants, like in Phase IV, or bees, such as in The Deadly Bees, insects can be effective movie antagonists.  In 1988, The Nest brought another insect into the spotlight, one that already had a bad reputation as a creepy-crawly: the cockroach.

Kirsten Dunst in THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY, a Magnolia Pictures release. Photo courtesy of Magnolia Pictures.Adapted from the best-selling novel of the same name by Patricia Highsmith (who also wrote "Strangers on a Train," the basis for Hitchcock's classic), The Two Faces of January is a brightly painted portrait drenched in noirish tendencies.

Take Me to the RiverAround the same time that Motown Records was doing its thing in the big city of Detroit, Stax records was recording and releasing music down south in Memphis.  The output from these two labels represented the best of what American music had to offer, and continued well into the days of the British Invasion of the mid-sixties.  Although Motown had more chart success and record sales, Stax had the attitude; the cool mix of blues, gospel, funk, and jazz that became a recognizable sound all its own.  Director Martin Shore tells the Stax story, but not in the traditional way, in his new documentary Take Me to the River.

FrankIf you have not seen Frank, stop at the end of this paragraph and go see it.  Do not check IMDB, watch a trailer, or read any reviews or publicity materials for the film, just go see it.  The rest of this article will deal with a spoiler that is not really a spoiler, because just about all promotional materials for the film make it common knowledge.  But, Frank is the kind of movie where the surprise reveal of the identity of the title character is a key aspect of the effectiveness of the film.  So do not pass go, do not collect $200, just go watch Frank.  We’ll be right here.

Wetlands PosterMeet Wetlands' Helen (Carla Juri). She is in her post-teen years, still lives at home, is quite pretty with her tomboy haircut that is juxtaposed with her liking for very short shirts. She is a tiny bit insecure, and extremely precocious; exhibiting a child-like sense in her very much young adult body. Helen is also extremely vulgar in everything that she does. Obsessed with sex, sexuality, and pushing the boundaries of appropriateness there is no end to what Helen will do. Or what those around her will be compelled to do by her influence. Helen is, in a word, amazing. Solely for the fact that she exhibits everything that is wrong for a girl of her age, and you instantly fall in love with her because of this fact.

Rich HillRich Hill, Missouri, is a small town of less than 1400 located about 90 minutes south of Kansas City.  The town’s citizens are a mixture of the working class and the poverty stricken, but they hold on to hope.  A new documentary, simply called Rich Hill, paints a picture of the town as seen through the eyes of three of its residents, all teenaged boys.

Jimi: All Is By My SideJimi: All Is By My Side is a film with multiple problems serious enough that the couple of very good things it has going for it stand little chance of compensating. As written and directed by 12 Years A Slave scribe John Ridley, the narrative sets off down familiar musical biopic lane: musician discovered; gains success; deals with distractions and behaves badly; and that's it.. Perhaps because the production was denied the use of Hendrix's music by his estate (holding out for full control of the production), the story ends in mid-1967, with Jimi and his Experience trooping off to Monterey and international fame.

Under the Electric Sky (2014)Every year, hundreds of thousands of people flock to Electric Daisy Carnival, an electronic dance music festival held in several different locations all over the world during the summer months.  The festival brings fans together into a musical circus-like atmosphere for three days of non-stop partying.  The largest of these gatherings is the one that takes place in Las Vegas, NV, and that is the one that is at the center of Under the Electric Sky.

Supermensch: The Legend of Shep GordonIn Yiddish, the word “mensch” refers to “a person of integrity and honor.”  One would not think that it would be a term that could apply a showbiz manager, but it is the best description for Shep Gordon.  Even those who have never heard of Shep Gordon are probably familiar with his clients.  He’s one of the entertainment industry’s most powerful players, having represented musical heavyweights like Alice Cooper, Anne Murray, and Teddy Pendergrass.  His list of A-list friends is exponentially longer than his artist stable, and the guest lists to his famous parties read like a who’s-who of Hollywood.  And every one of these friends and acquaintances has nothing but good things to say about him.  He’s more than a mensch, he’s a Supermensch, hence the title of the intriguing documentary about his life and times, Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon.

William Eubank“I don’t know if they’re here, or have ever been here, but I definitely do believe in them.”  William Eubank, director of The Signal ponders the existence of aliens and UFOs.  It’s a fair question; The Signal is all about the possibility of extraterrestrial life on Earth, and Eubank’s first film, Love, was produced and scored by the rock band Angels & Airwaves, whose famous frontman, Tom Delonge, is an outspoken alien conspiracist.  Eubank speaks fondly of Delonge - “I’ve sat in his backyard many a time with night vision goggles, looking at the sky.  He’s a good dude.”

Watermark - Courtesy Entertainment OneWater is something we all take for granted.  We couldn’t exist without it, yet we only think about it when it’s running scarce.  We use it to cook, clean, work, and play, and we do it all on a daily basis.  Renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky has teamed up with filmmaker Jennifer Baichwal (Payback) to pay tribute to the most overlooked and underappreciated of the Classical Elements in the documentary Watermark.

Finding Vivian Maier - Courtesy Sundance SelectsIn 2007, a young realtor named John Maloof was looking for pictures of different areas of Chicago for a book that he was compiling.  He bought a storage unit for $380 that contained thousands of negatives and a bunch of undeveloped rolls of film.  When he examined the negatives, he saw some of the most captivating street photography that had ever been taken.  He knew that he was onto something, so he snooped around the locker a bit more and found pieces of mail addressed to a woman named Vivian Maier.  Seeing that there was a story developing, he enlisted producer Charlie Siskel (“Tosh.0”) to help him tell it, and the resulting documentary is Finding Vivian Maier.

Jurassic World Poster - 1The moment has arrived, Universal unleashed the first trailer for Jurassic World. Call it a re-boot, a re-make, a complete waste of time, or the best thing to come in 2015. Whatever you do, don't ever tell this movie lover that you don't care about Jurassic World; my bite is ferocious.

From the trailer, there are questions that will surely be raised. My biggest one is whether or not there will be a reference to the prior three films, or whether Jurassic World is poised to stand on its own and in fact be a new telling of the famous story about the dinos we love ever so much on screen. The trailer makes me think that it is an entirely new story, with the park being created anew and any signs of the past washed away by Hollywood's ever-present eraser.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Rebel Warriors PosterYou knew it was bound to happen, and it has officially. The character posters for the Rebel Warriors of The Hunger Games; Mockingjay Part 1 have been released. You've got Gale, Pollux, Messalla, Cressida, Boggs, and Castor all looking very serious, and very ready to battle.

Disney's Are you ready for your daily dose of adorableness?  Disney's "Feast" is here to help you on your way with brand-new images from the upcoming short film. Who knew an animated puppy could bring so much joy, and such a big smile to one's face.

"Feast" will release in theatres November 7, 2014, playing with Big Hero 6.  Until then, go ahead and fall in love with the adorable puppy, Winston.

AnnabelleI will admit, the trailer for Annabelle may not be terrifying to you. For me, it is, thanks to a debilitating fear of creepy dolls. Annabelle is one of the scariest dolls I have ever seen on film--I have The Conjuring to thank--and I have seen an incredible amount of movies. Regardless, the trailer for Annabelle will get your senses going, and your anticipation peaked for this sort-of prequel to The Conjuring.

Keanu Reeves in John WickEveryone who enjoys viewing the 'Sad Keanu' picture that is plastered all over the internet--you know the one, don't deny it--well, it is time to play homage to a new Keanu Reeves photo...that of him looking bad ass in the upcoming John Wick.

Reeves plays ex-hitman John Wick who must come out of retirement in order to battle gangsters. Yes, you read that correctly...gangsters vs. Keanu Reeves. Amazing.

ChefIt is a special treat when a movie like Chef is created. A film full of heart that brings out your emotions organically, without the need for gimmicks or special circumstance. Jon Favreau's Chef deserves the accolades it has received thus far since release in May and those that are sure to follow come awards season (fingers crossed).  Chef is being re-released in theatres for a special engagement begininning August 29, 2014. If you did not have a chance to catch this gem of a film before in theatres now is your chance--and do not pass it up.

Paul Rudd In Ant-ManIt has taken years for a movie version of Marvel's Ant-Man character to the screen. Some may say it is unnecessary; others are full of joy and anticipation.  Either way, the Ant-Man movie has started production in San Francisco, CA and a first-look photo of Paul Rudd as Ant-Man has been released.

Here he is, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man.

Men, Women & ChildrenJason Reitman had a rough time of it last year when Labor Day did not sit well with audiences or critics. A far cry from his previous works that received rave reviews and awards aplenty, such as Up In The Air.  It is a new year and with that comes a new movie for Reitman to deliver to the masses--and hope that this time goes better than the last.  Reitman's latest is Men, Women & Children, yet another dramedy set around familial life, this time with the internet age taking center stage.

Kelly & Cal PosterShe may not exactly be a punk rocker any longer, but being a mother post-punk is tough for Juliette Lewis' Kelly in the trailer debut for Kelly & Cal from IFC Films.  Cal, 17, is having a tough time at life as well. Enter the unlikely friendship of these two different people and the way they will each make everything just a little easier to manage for one another.

Guardians of the Galaxy Rocket and Groot PosterFor those who have seen Guardians of the Galaxy you know the enjoyment there was to be had with Groot dancing. If you have not seen the film, then you're in luck as a clip of Groot dancing has been released. If the clip does not convince you to go see the movie read the review here and get yourself to the movies.

31The process of crowdfunding has been a touchy one among movie fans.  Established filmmakers like Zach Braff and Spike Lee have come under fire for wanting to raise money for their films through campaigns on Kickstarter, while the Veronica Mars movie obliterated its goal in a single day.  Now, another established director is turning to crowdsourcing for movie money: horror icon Rob Zombie.

Into The WoodsDisney is taking multiple stories from The Brothers Grimm fairytales and mashing them up into one intertwined story with Into The Woods.  This is of course nothing new for Disney, as they have been reimagining The Brothers Grimm stories for eons.  But it is a new twist on old stories, and with a cast that includes Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski and Johnny Depp, to name a few, it is sure to be a star-studded musical outing. 

SpongeBob SquarePants Movie PosterHave you been forced to watched "SpongeBob Squarepants" with your niece, nephew, friend's child, or more than likely your own child over and over again?  Have you ever been able to figure out the plot or theme of an episode?  Me neither.  There is hope that the movie SpongeBob SquarePants: Sponge Out of Water will make more sense. Or are we asking far too much?  The time will come to decide in 2015 when the movie is released. Until then, I dare you to watch the trailer...

Groot, Guardians Of The GalaxyHave you ever wondered what Vin Diesel would sound like speaking Russian, Mandarin Chinese, or just plain old common Spanish?  Well, you are in luck as videos have been released where you can hear Diesel dubbing his lines for Guardians of the Galaxy in those three languages, and two more.

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMBIt just so happens that two evenings ago I was in the company of children and they chose to watch Night At The Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.  Imagine my surprise when the first teaser trailer for Night At The Museum: Secret of the Tomb popped up in my inbox this morning--and I must admit I had no idea they were making a third film in the franchise.  There is more fun to be had this time around with all of the characters we remember from the other two films, and some new ones too. 

Forrest GumpIn case you have not had enough of a fix over the past 20 years of Forrest Gump playing on television you are in luck. Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment are re-releasing the film in IMAX theatres to celebrate its 20th anniversary.  You will only have one-week to catch Forrest Gump on IMAX screens, starting September 5, 2014.  Make sure to bring a box of chocolates, and kleenex (Forrest Gump made me cry like a baby).

Hot Tub Time Machine 2To put a little spring in your step, and get your funny bone working, here is the brand-new red band trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2. You remember the hilarious original, right? It featured a hot tub, that was a time machine, and a band of misfit comedic actors who got taken back in time to the 80s. Yes, it was epic in all its ridiculousness, and now there is a new chapter of time travelin' hot tubbin' to be done.  Oh, the anticipation!

Scream FactoryScream Factory, the horror imprint of home video distributor Shout Factory which fans have lovingly dubbed “the Criterion of horror,” announced plans for ten new blu-ray titles during their Friday night Comic-Con panel.  Here are the newest members of the Scream Factory Family:
