    'White House Down' Review and Roundup: Tatum Hits, Emmerich Misses

    True confession. Always full of mischief and mayhem, Roland Emmerich movies are guilty pleasures for me.

    L.A. Film Fest Review: 'Delivery' Brings Scary and Entertaining New Life to Well-Known Horror Genres

    "Found Footage" is a tired trope, so one hesitates to lump in "Delivery" with the rest of the found footage horror genre because it's not under the guise of amateur "found" footage, it's footage that was specifically created— just for something quite different than what it was intended.
