ActionFest Review: ‘Bail Enforcers’
Friday, April 15 by

If you’re ever at ActionFest, and they’re showing Bail Enforcers, and Trish Stratus is there to present the film, I highly recommend you take advantage of that opportunity.

ActionFest Review: ’13 Assassins’
Friday, April 15 by

I knew when I saw it this was something special, but it kind of took me two viewings to process it all.

Review: ‘Henry’s Crime’
Friday, April 15 by

I don’t think it’s great or memorable, but as one of the unorthodox releases this weekend, it may interest some of you.

Review: Scream 4
Wednesday, April 13 by

It’s got all the hallmarks of the series we love to see again and we get to catch up with all the characters, but it feels forced and uninspired.

ActionFest Review: ‘Little Big Soldier’
Sunday, April 10 by

There’s no ladder twirling, conveyor belt sticking or cashier slot jumping through, but it’s always fun to see Chan move.

ActionFest Review: Never Back Down 2: The Beatdown
Sunday, April 10 by

The fighting is way more intense and just more entertaining than the original.

ActionFest Review: A Lonely Place To Die
Sunday, April 10 by

An impressive hardcore thriller that definitely stands out from the competition at ActionFest.

ActionFest Review: Films Of Fury Work Print
Saturday, April 9 by

Even if this is the final version, it’s still a great highlight reel for newbies and veterans alike.

ActionFest Review: Machete Maidens Unleashed
Friday, April 8 by

Focuses on the wave of films set in the Philippines and it’s ultimately the same story as any Roger Corman bio, but it’s a fun highlight reel.

ActionFest Review: Ironclad
Friday, April 8 by

The action is gory and bloody with great kill shots, and Paul Giamatti as the evil King John of England.

Thursday, April 7 by

You won’t mind watching it because of Brand and Mirren, and Gerwig is sweet, but there’s nothing memorable or hilarious.

Review: Wrecked
Wednesday, April 6 by

Definitely outstanding work for a first feature.

Review: Stake Land
Wednesday, April 6 by

The basic idea of the story is familiar, but I’m always up for another “surviving the wasteland” adventure.

Review: Your Highness
Wednesday, April 6 by

It could be funnier but it’s consistently pleasant.

Review: Hanna
Thursday, March 31 by

The action is cool, the characters are memorable and it’s made in a clear, exciting way.

Review: Showtime’s The Borgias
Wednesday, March 30 by

For any viewer fascinated by the storied heroes of modern-day crime sagas, the unique blood-soaked legacy of the House of Borgia is the ultimate incarnation of that mythos.

miral300
Review: Miral
Friday, March 25 by

Never feels like a hot button issue movie, or the even more dreaded “important social” movie. It’s just a moving drama about a world that’s foreign, at least to me, and probably many audiences.

Review: Jackass 3.5
Friday, March 25 by

The digital release ‘Jackass 3.5′ is in many ways more inspired than ‘Jackass 3-D’.

rain-man-blu
Blu-Ray Review: Rain Man
Thursday, March 24 by

The Academy Award winning film gets the Blu-ray treatment.

Review: Sucker Punch
Thursday, March 24 by

It’s not asking us to make sense of some random minimalist montage. It’s putting on a multi-million dollar show with no restrictions.

SXSW Review: Incendiary: The Willingham Case
Wednesday, March 23 by

A compelling documentary about how Todd Willingham was charged and executed for the murder of this three children.

jez-jerzy300
SXSW Review: Jez Jerzy
Monday, March 21 by

This Polish animated movie seems like it would be perfect for people who like Hentai. Personally, animated sex and bestiality don’t do anything for me.

fubar300
SXSW Review: Fubar: Balls To The Wall
Monday, March 21 by

I can see it being the type of movie you discover at midnight and it becomes an inside joke with your friends.

surrogate-valentine
SXSW Review: Surrogate Valentine
Monday, March 21 by

A typical indie drama about unresolved feelings, yet it’s entirely watchable and relatable.

cold-sweat300
SXSW Review: Cold Sweat
Sunday, March 20 by

The SXFantastic selection Cold Sweat is like The Wages of Fear crossed with Saw, with touches of The People Under the Stairs.

SXSW Review: The FP
Sunday, March 20 by

Exactly the kind of movie I hope to see at Fantastic Fest, or any film festival. Just a crazy creation by original artists who show up out of nowhere

SXSW Review: Cave Of Forgotten Dreams
Friday, March 18 by

It sure is pretty, but man, it’s soooo boring.

becoming-santa300
SXSW Review: Becoming Santa
Friday, March 18 by

I was not feeling the Christmas spirit on the SXSW Audience Award winning documentary.

kill-list300
SXSW Review: Kill List
Friday, March 18 by

I did not enjoy Kill List, and not because it’s offensive or upsetting. It’s because it’s phony.

Review: Limitless
Thursday, March 17 by

At its core, it’s just 90 minutes of dumb fun based on a concept that appeals to anyone who has ever struggled to do anything.
