Aftershock is a preposterous movie, but the genius thing about it is that it’s so totally in on its own schlocky premise that it approaches being good. Definitions of “good” obviously vary from person to person and so forth, but … Continue reading ?

Sometimes, despite your best intentions, you’ll walk into a movie with negative preconceptions instead of an open mind. It happens to the best of us, and while I can honestly say it’s an extreme rarity for me personally I’m still more than a little ashamed on the occasions where it happens. Show More Summary

Sure, co-writer and star Eli Roth serves up some pithy laughs, but the funny banter can't distract us from vapid people canoodling in egregious fashion. Show More Summary
