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.
Unknown is not just a mediocre action movie. It’s actually bad. The thinking must have been: Liam Neeson was awesome in Taken. Let’s put him in another one.
I wanted to succumb to Bieber Fever and the movie never got me there.
Perhaps the nonsense would be okay if there were some impressive battles to speak of, but the action is terrible.
Just Go With It isn’t nearly as bad as Grown-Ups. Just Go With It is just stupid. It’s not mean or hateful.
It uses a disaster to work through daddy issues. So does every disaster movie. Sanctum is just so dire it’s no fun.
For a Sundance midnight movie, Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same is just adorable.
Marling fans can revel in her performance as Maggie, but the Marling magic isn’t in the script.
Tells the Roger Corman story, in his words and, even better, in the words of his famous employees.
Life in a Day was made by asking YouTube filmmakers to submit footage about what their day was like on July 24, 2010. I would assume that such an endeavor would generate a lot of really pretentious footage. If you’re like me, you would be right.
May be the kind of sci-fi movie die-hards revel in, because it is just about the ideas.
Refreshingly, it’s not a comedy about big, broad set pieces. The humor is, appropriately, just in the details.
You can make a movie about human losers trying to be cool like vampires, but it has to be better than Vampire.
If you’ve ever been a kid watching “Sesame Street,” Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey is pure nostalgia.
Seemed more like the average studio comedy than a Sundance movie. There were a few inspired moments but mostly embarrassing misfires.
Wants to be a quirky indie comedy, but it’s so unlikeable that even the clever parts don’t work.
It’s not really a detailing of the factors in the economic crisis. It’s more of a drama about the people dealing with it.
Midwesterners going wild may not sound like an original idea for a comedy, but they really become a team.
