The SXFantastic selection Cold Sweat is like The Wages of Fear crossed with Saw, with touches of The People Under the Stairs.
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
It sure is pretty, but man, it’s soooo boring.
I was not feeling the Christmas spirit on the SXSW Audience Award winning documentary.
I did not enjoy Kill List, and not because it’s offensive or upsetting. It’s because it’s phony.
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.
If you end up watching it even on DVD, you won’t be bored.
A strong portrait of coping with depression. With a beaver.
The story of Hole drummer Patty Schemel is a cautionary tale of drugs and recovery, and a portrait of the ‘90s grunge scene.
Detention is the ultimate payoff for the meta movement.
It’s watchable and relatable, still the “Boy meets girl, boy gets girl, boy loses girl” formula.
I won’t be watching Septien again, but I could recommend it if you’re interested in film festivals and wondering what sort of movies are winning slots
A good campfire style horror movie. The scares are light and fun, not deep horrific terror.
It is an outstanding portrait of an artist that just lets us be in Conan’s world, the one we don’t get to see between late night episodes.
Follows the same plot as all “outrageous wedding” movies.
Paul is like all those comedies I used to like, the kind where they were just plain good.
It’s darkly comical and it has something to say.
SXSW offered a first look at the premiere of the new James Wan/Leigh Whannell film.
An intelligent sci-fi with thoughtful themes.
This will not be one of the animated movies you enjoy in spite of being grown up.
There is a kick ass way to redo this fairy tale. Instead this is all the boring parts of a teen romance.
Now that winning means something entirely different these days, I hope a movie like Win Win can remind people what victory truly is.
Exactly what you expect it to be and it delivers on that: Team of marines all with their personal issues, some civilians for the heart, rah rah patriotism and big explosions.
A perfectly average legal drama.
Boy, they just don’t make ‘80s movies like they used to.
I was about halfway to recommending this one before it wussed out.
Has some good ideas if it would only dig a little deeper.
Rango is so weird I can’t believe they got to make this movie.
It’s like a whole movie of the bear suit scene from Wicker Man.
It’s not golden era Farrellys like Kingpin but it’s good.
