    Review: 'House At The End Of The Street' Is Like 'Twilight' Meets 'The Devil's Rejects' (And Totally Awful)

    All of the promotional materials for the woeful new horror film "House at the End of the Street" promote it as your standard cheap-o chiller – a plucky blonde with a fondness for clingy cotton T-shirts, Jennifer Lawrence is doggedly menaced by backwoods psychos after leaving her urban upbringing for...

    Trouble With The Curve—movie review

    There’s no reason 'Trouble with the Curve' should play as well as it does; it’s formulaic and utterly predictable. But it flows so well, and the cast is so likable, that it’s hard to resist.

    The Perks Of Being A Wallflower

    It’s rare that a novelist gets the chance to adapt his own best-selling book and direct it as well. Stephen Chbosky waited more than a decade to get that opportunity, but it’s paid off for him in 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower'.

    End Of Watch—movie review

    David Ayer grew up in the volatile neighborhood of South Central L.A. and has mined his experiences in such films as 'Training Day' and 'Harsh Times.' He has a particular fascination with the L.A.P.D., but 'End of Watch,' which he wrote and directed, isn’t simply more of the same.

    Fantastic Fest Review: With ‘Frankenweenie,' Tim Burton Revives Pet Project, Returns to Form

    "Frankenweenie" is probably Tim Burton’s best film in almost a decade, but that’s not much of a compliment. With his last five films, the filmmaker responsible for some of the most fun, mischievous and magical cinema of the past 25 years has settled into a disappointing routine of utterly safe “w...

    Fantastic Fest Review: 'Frankenweenie' Is an Old-School Gothic Treat From Tim Burton

    While nearly 30 years have passed since the original stop-motion animated "Frankenweenie" short that presaged Tim Burton's commercial success, the director's faithful feature-length adaptation retains so much of the original's old-school appeal that it could have been made in the same nascent period...

    Fantastic Fest Review: Tim Burton's 'Frankenweenie' Is A Rousing Return To Form

    For the last decade or so, visionary filmmaker Tim Burton, once known for original concoctions like "Edward Scissorhands," has gotten very good at taking studio assignments for pre-existing properties that seem to roughly fit within his wheelhouse ("Planet of the Apes," "Cha...

    Review: '17 Girls' Neglects Thematic Weight In Favor Of True Story Melodramatics

    In film, there is a natural hostility towards youth. Part of this comes from the obvious fact that most cinematic stories are reflected through the eyes of an adult storyteller. Or Michael Bay. But this also comes from the fact that cinema has it’s own limitations as to what it can capture, and deve...
