Self/less Review

Director Tarsem Singh brings none of the visual flair we've come to know and love him for in this tired sci-fi body-switching action flick that's basically a remake of John Frankenheimer's superior Seconds.

TIFF 2014: The Voices Review

The Voices Vanguard In every horror movie, established or not, there has to be some assumption as to why a slasher is on their spree.

This Week in DVD: 6/5/12

This week in DVD, the big time money maker, but already forgotten Safe House, the unforgettable bomb John Carter, a pair of films so cheesy they're fun, and... um... Act of Valor.

Safe House Review

Ever since Paul Greengrass’ Bourne Identity sequels, espionage movies have been about terrorism and government cover-ups, set in third world countries and filmed with shaky handheld cameras and blown out colour schemes.
