“Relic” Mixes Horror With Some Genuine Emotional Anguish

Elevated horror is all the rage these days. The genre goes through phases, to put it mildly. There’s always a new flavor for what audiences want to be scared by, whether it was slasher films, torture porn, J horror, or whatnot. Currently, the renaissance is in classy independent fright flicks.[...]

Tom Hanks Patrols The Seas In “Greyhound”

It’s no secret that Tom Hanks has a strong interest in World War II. Beyond even his personal fascination with the subject, a number of his projects, both in front of the camera and behind it, have shown this to be true. Now, Hanks is back, serving as the star,[...]

“Hamilton” Captivates On Screens Just As It Must Have On Stage

Who lives, who dies, who tells your story? When it comes to the life of Alexander Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda has proven to be an incredible storyteller. Everyone knows of the stage production Hamilton, but not everyone got a chance to see it. Well, come Friday, a filmed version drops on[...]

“The Outpost” Presents The Reality Of War With Rod Lurie’s Dedicated Touch

The war in Afghanistan has not gotten much cinematic attention. Whether it’s because of films concentrating on the Iraq War more, the relatively recent nature of the conflict, or the inherent messiness of it all, there’s just a hole in the culture. Enter in Rod Lurie, who saw something in[...]

“aTypical Wednesday” Depicts A Largely Typical Dramedy

Sometimes, a film’s name can be part of its undoing. Despite the suggestions of its title, aTypical Wednesday follows a mostly typical route in telling its story. A vehicle for actor and now writer/director J. Lee, this movie feels like something we used to see all the time at the[...]

Jon Stewart Crafts A Subversive Political Satire With “Irresistible”

Back during his time hosting The Daily Show, Jon Stewart was among the smartest and most biting political satirists out there. Ever since he departed, Stewart’s voice has been missing from the day to day discourse. Now, for his sophomore feature as a filmmaker, he’s tackling a political satire with[...]

“Time Warp: The Greatest Cult Films Of All Time: Volume 3” Chuckles About Comedy And Camp

Rejoice film fans! Those of you who can’t get enough of cinema, and in particular fans of genre fare, are in for another treat. Two months ago, Time Warp: The Greatest Cult Films of All Time series kicked off with a first volume centered on midnight movies, followed last month[...]

“Babyteeth” Finds Heart And Quirk In A Tragic Situation

There’s a version of Babyteeth that could have been made which would have overplayed the quirk and cuteness factor. Luckily, no one involved in this movie is looking to do that. There are times where that method is needed, but here, it’s all about the heart of the matter. Babyteeth[...]

“Mope” Looks For Laughs In A Porn Industry Tragedy

There aren’t many stories as grody as the one being told in Mope. For those who don’t know the true tale, I’ll keep the salacious details to be discovered, but for those who know what this film is about, it isn’t hard to imagine the avenues being taken here. While[...]

“7500” Is A Tense Ride With Joseph Gordon-Levitt At The Controls

Joseph Gordon-Levitt isn’t generally who you think of as an action hero. Sure, he’s been in some action-centric pictures, but he’s more someone you pinpoint in other genres. While you might think of that as a negative when considering that he’s the lead in 7500, it’s actually a massive compliment,[...]
