The predicament of how allies and rivals repair fresh wounds fuels the striking post-war drama The Aftermath starring Keira Knightley, Jason Clarke, and Alexander Skarsgård.

First Man Review

First Man is a supreme tribute not only to the space race, but to one of the most fascinating and misunderstood figures of the 20th century.

Mudbound Review

Mudbound follows the trials and tribulations of two families bound to the land they farm. The film is a sweeping story filled with the realities and struggles of love, war, family, and friendship.

Terminator Genisys Review

Terminator Genisys is a passable little piece of schlocky nostalgia, the most charming part of which is the big wink we get from Arnie who is clearly enjoying himself.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Review

A slight step above its rather silly predecessor, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes decides to go the deathly serious route instead of keeping things light and fun with decidedly mixed results.

Blu-Ray Round Up: 11/4/13

This week brings looks at some leftover spooks, 'splosions, and some romance as we transition from Halloween in to the deeper recesses of fall. We look at Roland Emmerich's latest blockbuster White House Down, John Carpenter's underrated In the Mouth of Madness, James's Wan's surprise megahit The Conjuring, Richard Linklater's trilogy capping Before Midnight, and Neil Jordan's unjustly slept-on Byzantium.

White House Down Review

White House Down is both vastly better than this year's other President-in-peril flick and about as goofy and endearingly silly as one would expect from director Roland Emmerich, delivering his best all around work since Independence Day. You know, that other movie that destroyed the White House.

The Great Gatsby Review

While still technically an alright movie overall and somewhat subdued by its director's usual flashy standards, Baz Luhrmann's big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby still proves that there's something completely unfilmable about the source material in spite of some pitch perfect casting and stylistic choices.
