The Keeping Room Review

The Keeping Room has a promising premise and several ingredients for a successful bit of genre bending filmmaking, but the various elements never quite gel as well as they could or should.

Cake Review

There's a good reason why Jennifer Aniston didn't get an Oscar nomination this year. It's because Cake is almost unwatchably terrible.

TIFF 2014: Cake Review

Cake Special Presentations A great, but not exactly against type turn from Jennifer Aniston can’t salvage this slovenly, misshapen dramedy about an angrily depressed pill popping woman with chronic pain and a wealth of repressed feelings. Claire (Aniston) has separated from her husband and lost her child following a tragic accident. She goes through her […]

Home Entertainment Review: Sabotage

Sabotage (David Ayer, 2014) – There’s an interesting problem with Sabotage that most films never quite suffer from. Once you go through the few supplemental features on the film’s Blu-Ray (which was not made available to press and I had to go out and buy on my own), you’ll get wind that there was a […]

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.

Wrath of the Titans Review

Wrath of the Titans shows marked improvement in terms of acting and the use of 3-D over its predecessor, but it's really still just a bunch of ugly looking crap happening for no reason courtesy of the man tapped to helm the Michael Bay Ninja Turtles reboot.

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.

Last Night Review

We're invited into the lives of Michael and Joanna, inside their exceptional apartment. Michael is a commercial real estate agent, while Joanna is a author. These two are married. We know this because they're arguing (heh). Having recently been hitched, I've come to learn that marital spats happen for two reasons, and two reasons only: money and women. For this couple it's the latter.

Avatar Review

You may have heard of James Cameron’s new film, a little movie called Avatar.  Cameron and others have hyped the film to no end, claiming that it will change cinema as we know it (and for $250 million, it had better!).  Avatar features all the hallmarks we’ve come to expect from James Cameron: great action […]

Clash of the Titans Trailer

The first teaser trailer for Louis Leterrier’s Clash of the Titans has hit the web, the film is a remake of Desmond Davis’ 1981 original of the same name.  Leterrier who previously directed Unleashed, Transporter 2, and The Incredible Hulk, sought the involvement of legendary effects artist Ray Harryhausen for his remake.  Harryhausen’s amazing stop-motion […]

Avatar Teaser Trailer

The first trailer for James Cameron‘s super-hyped, 12-years-in-the-making Avatar has finally arrived.  With the exception of the presentation made at Comic-Con this year, this teaser is the first time the public has seen the film in action. If you were one of the lucky people to score tickets for one of the Avatar preview events […]

Terminator Salvation Review

Terminator Salvation wants to be a great film, but it has big shoes to fill.  The first two Terminator films were excellent, while the third was mediocre at best. Terminator Salvation aims to right the wrongs of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, bringing the franchise back to the darker more serious tone of the first […]
