Anna Review

Is Anna a return to form for its troubled director – or frivolous and forgettable like his more recent work?

The Girl on the Train Review

We reviewed the window Emily Blunt's character gazes out of in The Girl on a Train because it was much more interesting than the film itself.

High-Rise Review

A self-contained, ultra-modern apartment building slowly descends into complete anarchy in High-Rise, an utterly bonkers adaptation that's certainly not for everyone, but is it for anyone?

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Review

The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug isn’t necessarily better or worse than its predecessor, but more like an inverse of all of An Unexpected Journey’s positives and negatives. Instead of an opening hour that sets things up in excruciating detail and a final two hours of exciting story, Smaug has a pretty entertaining, fast paced and swiftly moving opening 100 minutes before giving into repetitive indulgence that exists for no reason except to drag the story out over three movies.

Interview: Brodus Clay

Dork Shelf talks to No One Lives actor and WWE Superstar (not to mention the only living Funkasaurus in captivity) Brodus Clay about the differences between horror crowds and wrestling crowds, how he almost spontaneously agreed to be in the film following a rough night at the office, what it’s like to get killed on camera, the butterflies he felt when the film debuted at TIFF last year, the importance of a well rounded education, and what it’s like being in the WWE locker room after doing a movie.

No One Lives Review

With a central antihero pitched somewhere between Hannibal Lecter and Ryan Gosling's character from Drive, the silly, but fun survivalist slasher No One Lives sets its aims low and doesn't take itself too seriously, and it works pretty well.

Interview: Ryuhei Kitamura

We sit down with director Ryûhei Kitamura (Versus, Midnight Meat Train) about his latest effort, the survival thriller No One Lives, playing as a part of Cineplex's Sinister Cinema series this week.

Fast & Furious 6 Review

Fast & Furious 6 somehow manages to clear the already high bar set by the series' previous entry in terms of action and excitement. It's also the best of the series and a darn good movie overall perfectly designed to give the audience exactly what they want. It's what this type of blockbuster filmmaking should always be like.

Immortals Review

Director Tarsem Singh previously made two visually stunning, but incredibly boring and boneheaded films (The Cell, The Fall) before taking on his latest film Immortals. Undoubtedly talented when it comes to visuals, his latest film somehow manages to rank as the least of his efforts, but not for lack of trying. Whereas his past efforts have been ambitious failures, there simply isn’t anything in this sword and sandals epic that hasn’t been done before, or better, hundreds of times before.
