You monsters. Conservative film criticism is wonderful stuff that we all should be reading, and I'm not even being facetious on that one. It's glorious. The very premise puts conservative above film criticism, asserting that the only...Show More Summary
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. As Above, So Below, from the filmmakers behind The Poughkeepsie Tapes, Quarantine and Devil, was surprisingly neglected by the film community, probably because it looked to be “just another found-footage” horror film […]
Well, it looks like we've reached the worst movie weekend of the year. But that’s okay. It just means we get a little time to go outside and enjoy the fresh air. Or if not, maybe you just go see Guardians of the Galaxy again. Either way, what we’ve got coming here is no bueno. Show More Summary
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 […]

Reviewed by Alice Nelson Quote: "Just sit back and enjoy the film for what it is -- a darned good and very effective horror movie."
Reviewed by Mac McEntire Quote: "When the movie becomes too high-minded, it gets less fun."
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.
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).
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...

Editor’s note: major spoiler warning. The only thing funny about the new Leprechaun is how bad it is at killing. 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 […]
It’s hard to believe Roger Donaldson has never directed a James Bond movie. His filmography—heavy on spies (The Recruit); pulp politics (No Way Out, Thirteen Days); and thievery (The Bank Job), with occasional forays into further-flung...Show More Summary

'Life of Crime' is not a disaster, but it sits pretty low on the list of Elmore Leonard adaptations.
It’s always nice to see Patricia Clarkson (“Shutter Island,” “Good Night, and Good Luck”) in a leading role, but she seems unusually ill at ease in this intimate family drama.
