    Review: 'Europa Report' Starring Sharlto Copley

    With the pressure to deliver on big time thrills and eye-popping CGI set pieces, multiplex sci-fi offerings frequently appear nearly brainless. While Sebastián Cordero’s “Europa Report” is far from flawless, this contained sci-fi thriller is shot through with a devotion to realism and a sense of won...

    Review: Brit Horror-Comedy 'Cockneys Vs. Zombies'

    Has there been anything of worth in the world of zombies in the last five years or so? It feels like the last time the walking dead were relevant was Edgar Wright’s savvy send-up “Shaun of the Dead,” with a footnote to the genre being the angry politics of George A.

    Review: Joachim LaFosse's 'Our Children' Starring Tahar Rahim

    Some movies you don't exit, you escape. You crawl out from underneath them, they're so heavy and oppressive and immovably huge. "Our Children" is one such weighty mass.

    Review: Neill Blomkamp's 'Elysium' Starring Matt Damon & Jodie Foster

    The year is 2154, and while the future may include ships that reach supersonic speeds in fifteen seconds, and advanced weaponry and technology that now interacts directly with the human body, the divide between the haves and have nots has never been greater. Los Angeles has essentially become one la...

    Review: '2 Guns' Starring Denzel Washington & Mark Wahlberg

    Did “2 Guns”… happen? It seemed there was a screening for the new action film. And it had Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg. Or is that just a memory from the overt billboards and advertisements, boasting both stars aiming guns with the title superimposed in front of them. There was some shooting,...

    Review: Paul Schrader's 'The Canyons' Starring Lindsay Lohan & James Deen

    Director Paul Schrader’s “The Canyons” opens up with images of what appears to be a post-apocalyptic world for cinema. Cameras glide over ghost towns of dilapidated, dying and dead movie theaters, backed by a haunted and menacing electro score. The suggestion implied is that cinema is coming to an e...
