Annihilation Review

Alex Garland's new sci-fi thriller Annihilation has a lot going for it – from a strong cast to stunning visuals – but it ultimately feels lacking in some ways.

Anomalisa Blu-ray Review

There’s no such thing as a Charlie Kaufman movie designed to be watched only once and Anomalisa is certainly no exception, so we took a look at the brand new Blu-ray and its extras.

Welcome To Me Review

It’s unlikely that Kristin Wiig's surreal comedy Welcome To me will have much mainstream success in theaters, but this sucker has “future cult favorite” written all over it.

The Spectacular Now Review

James Ponsoldt's The Spectacular Now is the most authentic depiction of what it means to be a teenager since Cameron Crowe's landmark Say Anything. It's so adept at conveying youthful awkwardness, petulance, and regret, and how every moment in a teenagers life could signify the end of their comfortable world that it could practically incite post traumatic stress memories in those who watch it. The aching and longing at the heart of this bracing work is the kind that informs the rest of a young person's life for better or worse, and it's all done entirely free of cliche or artifice.
