Quality reviews of films of questionable quality.
  1. 22 May 2017

    Play Motel

    Backdrop placeholder

    3 Stars (out of 5) I expected a sleazy giallo and I got a sleazy giallo. The catchy folk-rock theme song? That surprised me.

  2. 15 May 2017

    Heat

    Backdrop placeholder

    5 Stars (out of 5) I tilt forward in my seat. My heels rise. The balls of my feet press into the floor. My hands clench tight and I realize I'm holding my breath. Heat on the big screen is an experience.

  3. 08 May 2017

    Free Fire

    Backdrop placeholder

    3 Stars (out of 5) You know that scene in crime movies, where a back-alley deal turns sour, resulting in a shootout? Free Fire stretches that into an entire movie.

  4. 01 May 2017

    Raw

    Backdrop placeholder

    2 Stars (out of 5) I was fine with the cannibalism, but everything else irked me.

  5. 24 Apr 2017

    Deadpool

    Backdrop placeholder

    4 Stars (out of 5) Beneath the crude jokes and over-the-top violence lurks a serious film.

  6. 17 Apr 2017

    Shock

    Backdrop placeholder

    2 Stars (out of 5) You won't believe me when I tell you not to watch Shock.

  7. 03 Apr 2017

    Logan

    Backdrop placeholder

    4 Stars (out of 5) It's taken 17 years, but Logan gives us the Wolverine we've always wanted.

  8. 20 Mar 2017

    Get Out

    Backdrop placeholder

    4 Stars (out of 5) Reviewing this one without spoilers will prove difficult. Bear with me.

  9. 13 Mar 2017

    The Telegraph Trail

    Backdrop placeholder

    2 Stars (out of 5) Young John Wayne gets his best supporting cast in years, but the resulting picture still stinks.

  10. 06 Mar 2017

    Island of Death

    Backdrop placeholder

    4 Stars (out of 5) When it cut to Robert Behling's contorted face as he sodomized the baby goat, I thought, “Now, this is 4-star material.”

  11. 27 Feb 2017

    Cathy's Curse

    Backdrop placeholder

    1 Star (out of 5) How did a 40-year-old, little-seen Canadian horror movie land a 2k restoration and limited theatrical run? It started with an internet movie review.

  12. 20 Feb 2017

    John Wick: Chapter 2

    Backdrop placeholder

    4 Stars (out of 5) I spent a good portion of John Wick: Chapter 2 thinking Keanu Reeves wasn’t right for the titular part. Then I realized he makes the film work.

  13. 13 Feb 2017

    Maléfique

    Backdrop placeholder

    3 Stars (out of 5) Maléfique falls short of its potential.

  14. 23 Jan 2017

    Green Room

    Backdrop placeholder

    5 Stars (out of 5) Watching Green Room, I caught myself holding my breath. It's that kind of movie.
