The Troll Hunter movie
Review: Trollhunter
Wednesday, May 4 by

Dare I say, the best found footage movie ever?

NBFF Review: Bodyguards And Assassins
Monday, May 2 by

The best kind of history lesson: one full of spin kicks.

Review: Do Not Disturb
Monday, May 2 by

Another one of those first time films with a little something going for it.

Review: Page One: Inside The New York Times
Monday, May 2 by

Presents all the important debates of the new media age.

Balls and Money
NBFF Review: Balls To The Wall
Sunday, May 1 by

Has a good tea bagging joke. That’s about it.

Review: Thor
Sunday, May 1 by

Not enough memorable action sequences to make up for the contrived storyline.

Sad Ferrell
Review: Everything Must Go
Thursday, April 28 by

A Will Ferrell acting serious movie that succeeds.

Review: Hesher
Thursday, April 28 by

Puts bold concepts up on the screen and asks audiences to deal with them.

Review: Fast Five
Wednesday, April 27 by

Not as fast and furious as one might hope.

Tribeca Review: The High Cost Of Living
Monday, April 25 by

Now this is drama!

Tribeca Review: Stuck Between Stations
Monday, April 25 by

It definitely gets to a point where it says something unique, but I can’t say the entire movie does.

ActionFest Review: The Heir Apparent: Largo Winch
Monday, April 25 by

Winch is no competition for James Bond but you can see why the French enjoy him.

Review: Water For Elephants
Thursday, April 21 by

Looks great, but feels just like all the other historical epic romances.

ActionFest Review: Bangkok Knockout
Sunday, April 17 by

The story is the perfectly simple thriller in the vein of ‘Saw’.

ActionFest Review: Fightville
Sunday, April 17 by

A documentary that articulates the nuance and grace of MMA.

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.

Review: Arthur
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.
