As a longtime fan of any book series, there is often trepidation when you hear your favorite novels are being made into movies. This is because... well, we've seen what can happen. You can either get The Hunger Games version, which is pretty true to the books and one of my favorite book-to-movie adaptations yet, or you can get the Eragon version. Show More Summary
A wise man (OK fine, it was me) once said that, as far as indie horror films are concerned, originality is frequently overrated.

As we’ve seen before, when DVD bootleggers create cover art for their products, a lot of times they just pull random reviews of whatever movie they’re selling and stick it on the box like a traditional pull quote, with no regard for whether the review is actually positive. Unintentional or not, there’s actually something refreshingly honest about that.
Arthur. The Thing. Fame. Conan the Barbarian. Hollywood has vomited so many bad '80s remakes that sometimes it's hard to give About Last Night and RoboCop a fair review. But both movies got thumbs-up from critics who've seen them early, including the Tampa Bay Times' Steve Persall.
Twitter buzz over the weekend made me suspect I had chosen the wrong movie to see and review for its cultural significance. I went with "The Monuments Men," but I'm starting to think I should have seen "The Lego Movie" instead. I'm a...Show More Summary
JANUARY 29, 2013 GENRE: MONSTER, SUPERNATURAL SOURCE: DVD (OWN COLLECTION) I could have sworn I reviewed Phantoms a few years back, but if so, it disappeared just like the residents of Snowfield. I know I had only seen the movie twice;...Show More Summary

Stop me if you've heard this one: A dangerous outcast creature is trapped in a war between two deadly supernatural forces. This creature isn't sure where its loyalty lies, but through a series of betrayals and evil machinations, and aided...
Lionsgate’s Underworld look-alike I, Frankenstein is now in theaters everywhere. And while is boasts quite an impressive cast – Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Socratis Otto, Yvonne Strahovski and Miranda Otto – it’s said to be quite possibly one of the worst mainstream genre films in... Read More
I, Frankenstein is the worst theatrically released film I have seen in three years. As random as that three year metric might seem, that’s about how long it’s been since it became my job to watch and review films and conduct interviews around them. This... Read More
My Sundance experience wouldn’t be complete without a foray into the utterly absurd. R100 is complete mayhem. It is deranged, indecipherable at times, and cult classic material if I’ve ever seen it. In the style of a retro Japanese action-thriller, R100 confounds, delights, and leaves you with a feeling of: “what the hell did I just [...]
Ben Stiller's remake of the Danny Kaye classic is one of the strangest movies I've seen lately. A little under halfway through its running time, it simply stops being "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" and becomes an entirely different...Show More Summary

Note: if you saw Leprechaun's Revenge on Syfy earlier this year then you've already seen Red Clover. It just has a new title and some decent gore tossed back in. The Syfy Channel churns out so many low-budget movies that it's reallyShow More Summary
Thor: The Dark World is not a profound movie. But it’s one that puts a lot of craft and style into entertaining the audience, and the result is one of the most delightful movies we’ve seen this year. You know the plot: Malekith wants to turn the universe into dark matter, and Thor has to stop him.
You may have seen VH1's TLC biopic last month, called CrazySexyCool. (Here's our review.) Drawing 4.5 million viewers, it was the highest-rated cable movie of 2013, as well as Vh1's biggest film...
It's tough to approach a low-budget, made-for-DVD horror/western mash-up called Dead in Tombstone with any degree of seriousness these days (anyone seen GallowWalkers?!?) but when the b-movie at hand stars Danny Trejo as a gunslinger...Show More Summary
Everything you need to know about The Counselor can be seen in the fact that its main character goes unnamed. He's a lawyer, played by Michael Fassbender, and he's only ever addressed by colleagues as "counselor," if they bother to....
The Colony is a post-apocalypse film fused with a zombie movie. It's also one of the most formulaic flicks I've seen all year. The film, available now on DVD, imagines a frozen Earth where survivors live in colonies in order to survive the harsh weather. Show More Summary
