[Review] ‘As Above, So Below’ Is the Scariest Movie In Years!

Some spoilers do follow. This weekend a movie came out that nobody’s talking about. It’s also one of the scariest movies in years.

The Hollywood Medical Reporter – Review of “Lucy”

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen such a hard swing with such a loud miss. Lucy truly deserves an A for effort; and in the world of this film, effort probably does start with the letter A. After all, in the world of this movie, 1 plus 1 does not equal 2, life […]

Thematically tough and emotionally rough, "Starred Up" is the kind of movie you might enter into with some reluctance. But - because everyone involved does such an outstanding job -- it's also the kind of movie you won't want to see end.

'The Calling;: movie review

There’s a potentially fascinating series waiting to be mined in "The Calling," even if it is buried beneath bland visuals and a pedestrian script on the big-screen. Movie Critic ‘The Calling’ — 3 stars With Susan Sarandon, Ellen Burstyn Detectives race to catch a serial killer (1:48).

Review: 'Frank' ??★ 1/2

An extraordinarily well-sustained one-joke movie, Lenny Abrahamson's "Frank" has no earthly reason to function beyond the 10-minute point. And yet there it is: a functioning, funny, weirdly touching fable of artistic angst and aspiration, a meditation on fame and its terrors and the...

Lionsgate and WWE’s Leprechaun: Origins is the worst kind of horror movie – one that’s so generic and mundane that it’s nearly impossible to not turn off. The problems begin with the screenplay by Harris […]

Movie Review: The November Man is the James Bond movie Roger Donaldson never got to make

Review: Persona 3 The Movie: #2 Midsummer Knight's Dream

Despite its pacing problems and general lack of an overarching story, I enjoyed Persona 3 The Movie: #1 Spring of Birth. As far as animated film adaptations of long games go, I think it did a novel job of compressing hours of gameplay and story into about 90 minutes. Show More Summary

‘Life of Crime,’ movie review

'Life of Crime' is not a disaster, but it sits pretty low on the list of Elmore Leonard adaptations.

'Last Weekend,' 'James Marks Is Dead': movie reviews
