Tribeca Review: Maravilla

One of the most significant differences between a documentary and a film based on a true story is that documentaries can be about things that failed. Documentaries about big events are often started during the setup, and it&r...

Well, we had Jobs, which was kind of the quick cash in on the whole Steve Jobs biography thing, but it's time for the big guns to come out. Sony pictures has been whipping up fervor over its adaptation of the popular biograph...

The Grand Seduction gets its first trailer

I'm a big fan of Taylor Kitsch and of charming comedies so putting the two together gets a big thumbs up from me. That's the gist of The Grand Seduction, which finds Kitsch as a doctor who comes to a small town for a month, ...

Tribeca Review: Super Duper Alice Cooper

As a child, my parents lived and breathed Alice Cooper. My father had a particularly terrifying poster of his made-up, screaming face thumbtacked into the cork-board wall of his office that scared me too much to ever listen t...

First trailer for Batman: Assault on Arkham looks boring

Taking place within the same world as the Arkham series of Batman videogames (rather than the New 52 the DC animated films are in now) is Batman: Assault on Arkham. As the straight to home video DC films are hit and miss (fo...

Tarantino drafting new Hateful Eight script

The drama over Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight has been pretty crazy. After the script leaked online he swore he was going to put the film on the back burner, and then decide to hold a one-time only reading of the ...

Review: Soft in the Head

Every once in a while, I see a movie that feels truly unique, and when that happens I tend to obsess over the process instead of the result.

Soft in the Head is different, and I spent much of the film wondering. I never found an answer.
