Review: Blood on Her Name

Blood on Her Name is a film of backroads, barns, trailers, and barrooms. It's dark, grimy, and bruised from the offset. The world it inhabits is depressed and desperate, the kind of world where everyone is a victim of their own circumstance...

See Burden early and free

A movie called Burden sounds like it might be a slog to get through but this one looks exactly the opposite. Premiering at Sundance the film looks to be a stirring story of love triumphing over hate. I haven't seen it so I'm not s...

Review: Dragon Quest: Your Story

Picture this; it's a Sunday afternoon. You're in between video games, you have nothing better to do, so you decide to dust off your Netflix account to see what's new. I hardly use Netflix anymore, really only cracking it open for She-Ra, Ca...

See The Invisible Man early and free

Ready to see a classic horror movie monster actually adapted into a scary movie? It looks like The Invisible Man might be the one that does it. Taking the concept of the Universal movie monster and turning it into a metaphor for the al...

Review: My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising

One of the grand traditions of anime is not the filler arc, but the film adaptation. No matter how obscure or unsuccessful a certain show may be, you can basically count on a movie getting released shortly after the series starts airing. Di...

A Borderlands movie adaptation is happening with Eli Roth

There are many video games out there that deserve an adaptation. Bioshock was long expected, as is the upcoming Halo TV series, but Borderlands is not the franchise you may have expected to be next on the list. Eli Roth has teamed with...

Review: Beanpole

Whether or not Beanpole (Russia's submission to these past Academy Awards) is a quiet triumph is something of an enigma to me still days after seeing it. Beanpole is a film that I think has so many threads, both literal and figurative, that...

Review: Ride Your Wave

I don't know what it is with anime features films and water this year, but the fact that Ride Your Wave is the second anime film from an acclaimed director centered on the importance of water in as many months can't be a coincidence. Water ...

The low budget horror of the 70's and 80's host some of the most formative movies of my young life. Whether it be Girly, The Baby, or the assorted works of Jean Rollin, I've been transfixed by these grungy works of the explicit and bizarre...

Review: We

We sells itself as a boundary-pushing work of nihilistic disturbia. It lulls us into its scenic and well-photographed slice of life for eight teens in the Netherlands. They ride bicycles to dreamy synth evocative of Stranger Things but with...

Sonic the Hedgehog cleans up the box office this weekend

Who would have thought that Sonic the Hedgehog would be a mega-hit? I mean, Paramount probably did, but initial reaction to that first trailer was incredibly negative. Did the redesign really help smooth things over that much? If the number...

Review: The Times of Bill Cunningham

Biopics, like anything else, can be hit or miss. Having an interesting subject is no guarantee either. Interesting people can be victimized by bad direction, hack writing, and poor editing just like anything else. When it comes to The Times...

Megan Fox to be handcuffed to dead husband in Till Death

Jennifer's Body was an all right movie. It got a lot of hate when it first landed, probably because horror/comedies are usually written off as dumb by people who just wanted a straight horror flick. Others have since tried to rehabilitate i...
