Posted Aug 31, 2014
21% Into The Storm (2014) " There are clichés, shameless emotion manipulation and cardboard cutout characters; but the moments of suspense and the renderings of relentless killer storms are at times truly breathtaking." — Dread Central
Posted Aug 8, 2014
2.5/5 40% Beneath (2014) " A good thriller for a dark night of Netflixing." — Dread Central
Posted Jul 15, 2014
2.5/5 28% Deliver Us from Evil (2014) " But if you're a sucker for the subject matter, you'll probably want to check it out anyway." — Dread Central
Posted Jul 2, 2014
32% Anna (2014) " A nice throwback to old school suspensers like Altered States and Brainscan." — Dread Central
Posted Jun 8, 2014
—— Joy Ride 3 (Unrated) (2014) " Joy Ride 3 is a serviceable enough gore fest and the actors are all up to par." — Dread Central
Posted Jun 8, 2014
29% Cabin Fever 3: Patient Zero (2014) " Adds fresh blood to the proceedings yet stays true to the formula of the original." — Dread Central
Posted Jun 8, 2014
3/5 34% Stage Fright (2014) " If you're a sucker for singing and slashing, you're likely to like Stage Fright." — Dread Central
Posted Apr 30, 2014
2.5/5 36% The Quiet Ones (2014) " Though The Quiet Ones does not quite work as a throwback to Hammer's heyday, it does, however, serve its purpose as a decent time-waster." — Dread Central
Posted Apr 24, 2014
3/5 59% 13 Sins (2014) " The ending peters out a bit, but if you enjoy a little sadistic horror with a touch of humor, then 13 Sins is a fun enough time waster." — Dread Central
Posted Mar 27, 2014
79% The Raid 2 (2014) " ... it'll please a lot of fans." — Dread Central
Posted Mar 25, 2014
2.5/5 48% RoboCop (2014) " RoboCop is worth a look on the big screen for the visual spectacle, but for the visceral satire you're better off revisiting the original." — Dread Central
Posted Feb 11, 2014
45% Raze (2014) " Violent beyond belief, bloody and yet a bloody-good time, Raze is a fun one for fans of hard action and well-choreographed bare-knuckle fight scenes." — SheKnows Network
Posted Jan 3, 2014
93% The Hunt (2013) " Though its theme is hardly a happy subject, this thought-provoking Danish drama on the false accusation of child abuse is nonetheless extra-highly recommended" — SheKnows Network
Posted Jan 3, 2014
76% The Invisible Woman (2013) " It's worth a look for the acting and the accoutrements." — SheKnows Network
Posted Jan 3, 2014
93% American Hustle (2013) " This is one you'll want to hustle to see on the big screen." — SheKnows Network
Posted Jan 3, 2014
77% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) " Based on the best-selling memoir of the same name, this funny, irreverent, poignant, fast-paced and fun flick is well worth the investment." — SheKnows Network
Posted Jan 3, 2014
89% Tim's Vermeer (2014) " Like a combination of the Penn & Teller: Bulls***! TV series and an extended episode of MythBusters as presented by an alternate History Channel comes Tim's Vermeer - a truly fascinating documentary." — SheKnows Network
Posted Dec 23, 2013
89% Tim's Vermeer (2014) " It's sure to please inquiring minds of both left- and right-brained nature." — StaciWilson.com
Posted Nov 30, 2013
2.5/5.0 50% Contracted (2013) " Contracted goes all-out on the gross-out." — Dread Central
Posted Nov 27, 2013
42% Homefront (2013) " Homefront reminded me a lot of an old fashioned, really rated R, 1970s Jan Michael Vincent or Charles Bronson vehicle." — Yahoo! Movies
Posted Nov 22, 2013
76% The Invisible Woman (2013) " As straight-laced as its Victorian-era setting, the film lacks gusto." — Yahoo! Movies
Posted Nov 22, 2013
80% Saving Mr. Banks (2013) " Peerless performances stayed with solid cinematography, a stirring score, and especially dishy dialogue, make Saving Mr. Banks is a solid biopic. " — SheKnows Network
Posted Nov 22, 2013
47% The Strange Color of Your Body's Tears (2014) " Style rules over substance here, and what style it is!" — StaciWilson.com
Posted Nov 14, 2013
97% The Selfish Giant (2013) " Deftly directed, Barnard's film gives just as much credence to quiet dialogue scenes as it does to a danger-fraught harness pace-race that's reminiscent of Ben Hur on a budget." — StaciWilson.com
Posted Nov 14, 2013
—— Mary Queen Of Scots " Enjoyable enough for both the completest and the casual costume drama fan. " — StaciWilson.com
Posted Nov 14, 2013
98% Jodorowsky's Dune (2014) " A must-see for filmmakers, aficionados, dreamers, doers and 'warriors' of all ilk." — StaciWilson.com
Posted Nov 14, 2013
92% Herblock: The Black & the White (2013) " Although a lot of it is talking heads, I was never once bored: the editing and presentation are every bit as dynamic as the anecdotes." — StaciWilson.com
Posted Nov 14, 2013
99% Gloria (2014) " While there's a lot to draw from here, there was perhaps too much Lelio found precious; a sagging center [does the film no favors]." — StaciWilson.com
Posted Nov 14, 2013
—— Documenteur (Documenteur: An Emotion Picture) (1980) " Not a lot happens in the film; it's mostly musings and the cacophony of monotony of day-to-day life, yet there is a spiritedness in the work that's quite unique to its director, Agnès Varda. " — StaciWilson.com
Posted Nov 14, 2013
76% The Congress (2014) " While the sociopolitical aspects of the film are undeniably interesting, it's an entertaining but ultimately uneven and unfulfilling experience at best." — StaciWilson.com
Posted Nov 14, 2013
96% Cleo From 5 to 7 (Cléo de 5 à 7) (1961) " The locations, costumes, and fantastic cinematography and editing present a time-capsule of pure wow." — StaciWilson.com
Posted Nov 14, 2013
96% Blue Ruin (2014) " Excellently-acted, beautifully shot and deliberately-paced to nail-biting perfection, Blue Ruin takes a deserved place in the pantheon of no-holds-barred revenge thrillers." — StaciWilson.com
Posted Nov 14, 2013
20% The Last Days On Mars (2013) " Lacking the suspense and grip of flicks like The Thing or even minimalist stranded-in-space cinema like Moon, Last Days is saved from total tedium only by competent first-time director Ruairi Robinson and its stellar cast." — Dread Central
Posted Nov 14, 2013
3.5/5 49% Carrie (2013) " People who haven't seen the original will love it, and people who have seen the original should at least like it." — Dread Central
Posted Oct 17, 2013
—— Discopathe " Writer/director Renaud Gauthier shows he's got lots of potential. I look forward to seeing what he does next." — Inside Horror
Posted Oct 14, 2013
53% Haunter (2013) " Deft direction, strong performances, and an absorbing story elevate Haunter to the status of one of the better 'family' horror films of recent years." — Inside Horror
Posted Oct 9, 2013
—— Horror Stories (2013) " Don't let the generic title, or the lack of household names, deter you. Horror Stories lives up to its name and then some." — Inside Horror
Posted Sep 28, 2013
81% Don Jon (2013) " One of the best of the year." — Yahoo! Movies
Posted Sep 27, 2013
82% Prisoners (2013) " Highly entertaining." — Yahoo! Movies
Posted Sep 18, 2013
89% Rush (2013) " Yes, it's formulaic; but thrillingly so. Yes, it's more accessible than arty; but it's still a handcrafted film." — Yahoo! Movies
Posted Sep 18, 2013
85% We Are What We Are (2013) " The film looks picturesque as can be, is well-acted, and very smartly plotted." — Inside Horror
Posted Sep 18, 2013
41% All the Boys Love Mandy Lane (2013) " A head-shaker of a twist undoes all the good built up in the beginning." — Inside Horror
Posted Sep 18, 2013
80% Curse of Chucky (2013) " Curse of Chucky is nicely restrained, eking out suspense and building characters before all voodoo hell breaks loose." — Inside Horror
Posted Sep 18, 2013
64% 2 Guns (2013) " There's enough gleeful use of T-N-T in this fun-fare flick to make Wile E. Coyote look like Mahatma Gandhi." — StaciWilson.com
Posted Jul 31, 2013
54% Lovelace (2013) " Add the swinging '70s vibe to some cool costuming and an even groovier soundtrack, and you've got an entertaining (if sobering) night at the movies." — Yahoo! Movies
Posted Jul 31, 2013
58% The Frozen Ground (2013) " In spite of the uneasy straddle between crime-thriller and true-story, the movie's got its moments." — Yahoo! Movies
Posted Jul 31, 2013
69% The Wolverine (2013) " Clad throughout most of the film donning nothing but his retractable knuckle-claws, muttonchops, and a body cut enough to put Ginsu out of business, Jackman actually does a great job of portraying the human, emotional side of the eponymous mutant." — Yahoo! Movies
Posted Jul 31, 2013
72% Pacific Rim (2013) " It's great." — Inside Horror
Posted Jul 12, 2013
68% World War Z (2013) " World War Z is not a horror film, nor is it a deeply thought-provoking political thriller. But it is a fine action picture, and a good Brad Pitt movie." — Inside Horror
