    It is one of the better dumbass sci-fi action movies to come down the pike in quite some time.

    The point of this film is the spell it weaves and, by and large, it is successful. It’s the music, it’s the cinematography, it’s the score, it’s Casey Affleck’s hollow speaking voice — they all add up to something that resembles a fever dream facsimile of an eventful movie.

    Joe
    Cage, not one known for subtlety of late, is truly great in this sad, funny and tender role.

    Its final scenes and sublimely framed last, lingering shot are extraordinary.

    Borgman‘s crafty, trickster-ish screenplay, always two steps ahead of you, keeps you rooting for clues, enough to put your ethics on temporary hold.

    A gripping, fascinating and visually arresting memoir.

    With Muppets Most Wanted, the vaudevillian pandaemonium is alive and well.

    The landscape is a definitive presence throughout the film, which has almost no music and very little dialogue. The film is short (approximately 80 minutes) and maintains a good sense of dread throughout.

    You’ll laugh if you’re young, you’ll laugh if you’re old.

    22 Jump Street is a success, as there is a little good ol’ fashioned “heart” beneath its post-modern veneer.

    Teerink’s reserved, spare form mirrors LeWitt’s work, which gives it tremendous impact.

    Burning Bush is a rare accomplishment. It’s a political film with clear heroes and villains, and true to its HBO roots, it works as a fleet-of-foot juicy plot-delivery system.

    In the House is crafty and juicy and ought to delight anyone whose ever thumped their chest about being a storyteller. I must confess, however, that somewhere in the third act the air started to leak from the balloon.

    Gambardella’s world-weary look back at his sweet life, eclipsed by his turning sixty-five, is a dizzying fantasia of flash and filigree, and what it lacks in direct narrative is well patched-over with frenetic and emotion-rich sequences. This movie is a sight and sound workout.

    Raimi manages to keep things engaging, which is a very real act of wizardry in and of itself.

    This tiny friends-and-family production has the vibe of a project done on weekends and after school. That’s no knock. It is vibrant and bubbly and just clever enough to engage people who wouldn’t normally watch a black-and-white micro-budget Shakespeare adaptation without any big movie stars.

    The remarkable storytelling that eventually emerges in Eden is something you should see, providing you feel that you can stomach it.

    S-VHS isn’t as pants-pooping scary as the first, but it is funnier, tighter and slicker.

    Lengthy passages are unrelated to any discernible narrative, and seem to exist in that interzone your mind travels through just before it goes to sleep.

    Far-fetched, absurd and hopelessly schticky, but if you can get past its boring initial set-up, it’s actually quite funny.

    It never quite elevates itself above something like a really well produced behind-the-scenes featurette on a high end Blu-ray. But if you’ve got that Jodorowsky T-shirt aping the Judas Priest logo, you may as well start lining up now.

    It’s unlikely anyone who sees Blackfish will be trekking to Shamu Stadium this summer.

    Despite being very much a “filmed play” it doesn’t come across as too theatrical. Polanski uses plenty of close-ups and keeps the action moving.

    Cronenberg’s map doesn’t lead to a satisfying destination in a typical story sense, but it is a remarkable quest. For a movie that has so many problems, it is one of the more watchable ones.

    his bleak and somewhat sadistic picture is the type of movie that unfolds like a slow car wreck. You know something bad is going to happen, you just aren’t sure what, or how, and when it eventually happens it is repulsive and yet you still can’t turn away.

    For a tone poem on loneliness, fluid identity, and photogenic apartments, Enemy is the best entry in the genre since Roman Polanski’s The Tenant. And the last five minutes are just as unpredictable.

    First and foremost I’m So Excited! is late night cabaret – funny, filthy and more than a little bit sloshed.

    There are some laughs – and a few moments worthy of tears – but there’s a breaking point of believability in here somewhere that keeps Nebraska merely good as opposed to great.

    Ryan Gosling wanted to make an art film and, despite some dull patches, pretty much succeeded.

    While Bad Words is a little too dopey to take seriously, this is compensated for with a handful of truly amusing sequences.
