    Review: 'Broken' Starring Tim Roth & Cillian Murphy

    There is a difference between a kitchen sink drama and a drama that includes everything but the kitchen sink, and unfortunately for "Broken," it's more of the latter than the former.

    Review: 'Tremors' Meets 'The Guard' In Horror-Comedy 'Grabbers'

    Perfect fodder for a late-night audience, UK/Irish co-production "Grabbers," directed by Jon Wright, is a fun ride, and while it doesn't reinvent the "Tremors" and "Slither" modern-b-movie wheel, it adds a few neat touches to that formula. It's a shame it ultimately favours repetition over originali...

    Review: Tragi-Comedy 'Act of Killing' Confronts the Killer Inside (TRAILER)

    With his documentary "The Act of Killing," Joshua Oppenheimer has reset the bar for tragi-comedy. As in, don’t even bother trying, Hollywood. Ever again. In fact, why don’t we just dispense with next year’s Oscar race right now and give both the best documentary and the best feature award to this ...

    Review: 'Red 2' Starring Bruce Willis, Catherine Zeta-Jones, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren & More

    “Red 2” begins with a cool, comic-book-style credits sequence, paying a short homage to its Warren Ellis-penned roots. Too short, in fact.

    Review: 'The Act Of Killing' Is A Constantly Astounding, Terrifying Masterpiece

    Holy fucking shit. That was my reaction coming out of a screening of Joshua Oppenheimer’s shattering documentary “The Act of Killing,” at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year , that we're reprinting now as it heads to theatres.
