44% The Girl on the Train (2016) The Girl on the Train review says it misses the boat by not embracing the over-the-top potboiler parody it could have been, instead opting for Lifetime movie-of-the week blandness.‐

Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2016
75% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) There's a lot of predictable animal humor, but there are also several harrowing moments of nail-biting suspense.‐

85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) The Coen Brothers have done it again - made an ensemble crime caper comedy that's pure tinsel town gold!‐
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2016
43% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) Straddles the line between tradition and terror, fidelity to the source, forging new territory, and showing societal roles filled by brain-sucking zombies - with admirable aplomb.‐

25% Solace (2016) Solace has all the stuff I love. But not all the stuff everybody loves. It's a mixed bag.‐ Dread Central

97% 45 Years (2015) 45 Years is not story-driven, it's character-driven - and how exquisitely nuanced these people are! ‐

3.5/5 50% The Abandoned (2016) I was somewhat dissatisfied with the ending, but that sort of thing is subjective, and I encourage everyone to watch The Abandoned to judge for themselves.‐ Dread Central

3/5 No Score Yet Dark (2015) It's not perfect, but Dark is one of the better arty indies I've seen in some time.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Dec 29, 2015
88% The Big Short (2015) It's like a cinematic listicle. In other words, there's an awful lot going on in The Big Short!‐

3.5/5 65% Krampus (2015) When it comes to Krampus, you'd better watch out.‐ Dread Central

43% Bleeding Heart (2015) Good movie, bad title. ‐
Read More | Posted Nov 25, 2015
35% By The Sea (2015) The characters are not only unlikable, passive-aggressive jerks, they are boring and predictable to boot. Add to that stunningly stupid dialogue, and you're in for a shallow dive indeed.‐

3.5/5 64% The Funhouse Massacre (2015) I enjoyed The Funhouse Massacre and would watch it again; it's a good addition to the Halloween-themed canon. The title says it all: fun and massacre.‐ Dread Central

93% Janis: Little Girl Blue (2015) I already knew a lot about Janis Joplin, but that doesn't mean I didn't learn something - and, I was deeply moved by its inevitable end.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2015
73% Dreams of a Life (2012) I like how Morely juxtaposes urban life with inner life, and how the two don't always intersect. ‐
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2015
76% Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans (2015) While I think it's a worthwhile doc, it runs too long and paints a rather (unintended, I believe) poor portrait of McQueen.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2015
73% Trumbo (2015) Not only is the story engrossing - and true! - sometimes upsetting, and always informative, but it's also funny.‐

14% Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension (2015) Looking for a good horror movie to watch this Halloween? Check out Crimson Peak.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2015
71% Crimson Peak (2015) I wholeheartedly recommend everyone see Crimson Peak on the big screen. It's the most beautiful, bloody way to celebrate Halloween this year.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2015
No Score Yet Hell & Back (2015) Hell And Back may be for adults, but it is not very mature. Everything from drug use to rape is lampooned in this outrageous, R-rated comedy.‐

80% Tales of Halloween (2015) Treat!‐
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2015
2.5/5 No Score Yet The Hive (2015) The actors are good (especially Walsh, who was one of my favorites in last year's Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones), the story sails right along at a brisk clip that's just right for its 89-minute running time, and there's even a romantic subplot.‐ Dread Central

65% The Visit (2015) It's a wild ride with a few thrills along the way.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2015
2.5/5 15% The Curse of Downers Grove (2015) The story moves right along, and the characters are fun.‐ Dread Central

3/5 13% Sinister 2 (2015) The horror aspects are in full force: The snuff films through which Bughuul travels include unflinching looks at whole families being murdered in the most painful possible ways‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2015
No Score Yet The Devil's Carnival: Alleluia! (2015) If you're in the mood for a true spectacle that's as dark as it delightful, you must see Alleluia! The Devil's Carnival in all its gory glory.‐ Dread Central
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2015
7% Some Kind of Beautiful (2015) Kooky romantic comedies are nothing new and I don't mind retreads, but unfortunately Some Kind Of Beautiful is neither kooky, romantic, nor comedic. ‐
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2015
39% Strangerland (2015) Strangerland is presented through a prism of womanly wantoness juxtaposed with a mother's pain and fear. ‐
