I went looking for the waffle taco. I did not find it. But I did find something worth writing about. And now, like every annoying independently made comedy movie ever, I shall metaphorically c...
Reviewed by Patrick Bromley Quote: "It feels like a movie that set out to be a cult hit. Those can't be manufactured."
Reviewed by Patrick Bromley Quote: "Race With the Devil is an even better movie than Dirty Mary Crazy Larry, and not just because Warren Oates is in it."
It's here! The moment is finally here! I kept wondering when James Franco would release another performance art...I mean movie review. That's weird that I said that, right? What is it about James Franco's movie reviews that would make me think of performance art? OH I KNOW BECAUSE THEY'RE RIDICULOUS. Show More Summary

A classic romance with a happy ending is this week’s classic woman-centric movie pick. Love Affair, starring Charles Boyer and Irene Dunne, was released in 1939 and was directed by Leo McCarey. It has been remade twice, the first time being An Affair to Remember in 1957 and the second being Love Affair in 1994. Show More Summary
FROM NEXT MOVIE "Star Trek Into Darkness" is out in theaters, and if you haven't seen it already, go do so. (It's a ton of fun and should be seen on as big a screen as possible.) But before you do that, if you need a little more convincing, the folks over at Next Movie [...]
I often note how difficult it is to create a comedy that's not only smart and funny but also charming and surprising. But first-time director...
It’s been eight years since we reviewed the original version of Delicious Library, Delicious Monster's clever app for managing your media. But the question that greets Delicious Library 3, the latest edition in the franchise, is this:...Show More Summary
Making a Star Trek movie must be hard. A movie like Star Trek Into Darkness has to simultaneously treat its source material with acknowledgement, if not respect, and make itself feel new and original. There are a lot of ways to do that, but JJ Abrams seemed to choose, “Just make it fun and figure the rest out.” He chose wisely. Read more...
There’s something you guys should know about me right away, before we even get in to talking about Star Trek Into Darkness. It’s gonna make some of you uncomfortable, and it might even make some of you distrust every single thing I say about this movie from here on, but it needs to be said, because [...]
South Korean cinema has exploded internationally in the past decade or so. I won't speculate about how South Korean society informs the consciousness of its...
If 2009's Star Trek was an energetic and exciting movie that demonstrated that there was still life in the decades-old franchise yet, this year's Star Trek Into Darkness feels like its polar opposite.
Yes, a movie review from your Editor. I went to Star Trek: Into Darkness tonight. I liked it in the way you might like a good piece of escapism, but it left me a bit empty. The JJ Abrams concept was supposed to be a reboot of the Star Trek franchise — a way to restart with the characters we love, but with a clean | Read More »
Noah Baumbach’s great Greenberg (2010) may test viewers’ tolerance for misanthropy, but at heart, it’s a portrait of aggravated loneliness, of a socially stunted man-child who lashes out however he can. Baumbach’s Frances Ha is in some ways a twin portrait of toxic (and unearned?) neediness, centered on a more sympathetic protagonist. Show More Summary
For an 83-minute thriller, Black Rock sure takes its sweet time getting to the supposed “good stuff.” Maybe that’s because, for director/star Katie Aselton, the film’s fight-for-survival plot is less interesting than the trio of estranged heroines it encompasses. Show More Summary
When it comes to pure shock value, Kim Ki-duk—South Korea’s most divisive auteur—will probably never top his international breakthrough, The Isle. (Two shudder-inducing words: fish hooks.) But as the director’s latest, Pietà, grimly demonstrates, it won’t be for a lack of trying. Show More Summary
Erased is a snoozy, sputtering Euro chase flick—a sort of poor man’s Liam Neeson revenge movie, where every call is placed from a pay phone and every other scene seems to take place in a train station. It’s set in Belgium, and has the title cards—”Antwerp, Belgium,” “Brussels, Belgium”—to prove it. Show More Summary
“All roads lead to this.” That’s the tagline for Fast and Furious 6 and it’s appropriate on several different levels. The film is the final series entry from director Justin Lin, who picked up a fledgling franchise and carried it into the blockbuster realm. It also marks the culmination of a story that began at [...]
"Based on actual events" is a phrase you'll hear in a lot of movie trailers and see emblazoned across endless horror movie posters, but the truth about the "truth" is this: it's bullshit. For example, both Psycho's Norman Bates and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre's Leatherface claim to be "loosely based" on the notorious monster known as Ed Gein. Show More Summary
