    Fantastic Fest Review: The Kids Are Alright In Dan Bradley's Sturdy Remake of 'Red Dawn'

    After North Korean forces set foot on American soil in a clandestine invasion, one character utters that “this was bound to happen sooner or later.” He may just as well be referring to the fact that yet another beloved ‘80s title has been tapped for a remake by Hollywood; this t...

    Weekend Preview: 'Looper' & 'Pitch Perfect' Deliver

    There could be two home runs at the box office this weekend, as both "Looper" and "Pitch Perfect" score highly with critics. "Looper" delivers the sci-fi thrills and "Pitch Perfect" is both ridiculous and thoroughly enjoyable. There's also a handful of doc...

    Review: Muscular Genre Entry 'Solomon Kane' Unpacks Choice Atmosphere & A Superbly Moody James Purefoy

    It’s frankly absurd that Michael J. Bassett’s “Solomon Kane,” which premiered in U.K. theaters back in February 2010, is only tiptoeing into American theaters two years later. Credit to The Weinstein Company for picking up what is clearly a B genre picture, trading in grime-streaked foggy atmosphere...

    Review: 'The Other Dream Team' A Riveting, Inspiring Tale Of Sports History & Politics

    With NHL players and NFL referees currently locked out, for people who aren't sports fans to begin with, it's hard to sympathize with players making hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars, in billion dollar industries. For the most part, in our day-to-day lives, sports doesn't ming...

    Review: 'Pitch Perfect' Hits All The Right Notes

    Fantastic Fest Review: 'Wake In Fright' Is A Genuine Lost Ozploitation Classic

    As the terrifically fun and informative documentary "Not Quite Hollywood" notes, at around the same time that austere, gauzy Australian films were bewitching American art house crowds (dubbed the Australian New Wave by people who dub those sorts of things), another, equally powerful surge of Austral...

    Review: Heady, High Concept 'Looper' Is A Dazzling Piece Of Sci-Fi Noir

    Welcome to 2044, Kansas. Time travel hasn't been invented yet, but in thirty years it will be. And when it is, it's immediately outlawed, with criminal organizations using it for their own ends -- namely, to dispose of bodies. In the future, thanks to the advances in tracking people, it...
