Westworld Review: The Best of Two Genres

Westworld has all the action, adventure, and intrigue of the ideal Western film, but that's all a veneer for tourists, under which lies a rich maze of philosophy, science fiction, and genre criticism.

Run All Night Review

In a season notorious for film famine, a decent fast food action flick can taste like cinematic steak, which is why our newest critic ate up Run All Night.

It’s been a busy week with all of us gearing up for our massive Hot Docs coverage, but here’s a look at what else is playing on local screens this week that we haven’t gotten around to reviewing yet, including the Disneynature documentary Bears, the romantic drama The Face of Love, the Canadian teen road flick Hold Fast, the psychological thriller Stress Position, the literary minded Meetings with a Young Poet, and the ballet documentary Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil Le Clercq.

Man on a Ledge Review

Ostensibly a cross between Inside Man and The Negotiator with a healthy dose of Michael Bay style ridiculousness, Man on a Ledge might be the most fun to be had in cinemas this January. It’s an unabashed crowd pleaser that really doesn’t care that it doesn’t make an iota of logical sense.
