Walking Tall

Walking Tall

The Magnificent Seven gets the fall movie season off to a good start.

Scared Off

Blair Witch is essentially the original film with louder noises.

Brilliant Plane

Historical accuracy be damned.

I (Heart) Zombies

Hold on to your hats everybody, because we got us here another zombie movie. I think this is something like the 5,732nd zombie movie or TV thing to come out in the last three years or so.

Horror What?

Look, I know movies are mostly fiction and much of what happens in them can't really happen in the real world.

Bullet Points

War Dogs isn't a great movie, but it's one of the summer's better movies.

Stoner Party

There have been a few too many "more of the same" type movies at theaters this summer. Flat, big budget blockbusters and sequels without an ounce of creativity or originality puking out of the Hollywood industrial complex, delivering an astounding amount of expensive, vapid horse shit.

Suicide Squat

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was a skunk blast to the face for most of you trying to have a good time with a superhero movie earlier this year. This has been established repeatedly—perhaps ad nauseam—in this here column.

Stop the Bourne-ness

Jason Bourne, a tedious, desperate and sad extension of the Bourne storyline.

Zippy Pippy

While the new Star Trek Beyond lacks a little bit in soul and story cohesiveness, it scores high on the zip factor, and introduces a creepy new villain.

Dead on Arrival

Our movie reviewer was bored by the leading ladies in the new Ghostbusters, but was kind of into the 3D ghosts.

Creature Feature

The Secret Life of Pets is good for a laugh or two, and the occasional wacked-out moment that qualifies it as a semi-original animated movie.

Devilish Delights

After watching The Neon Demon, one might get the sense that director and co-writer Nicolas Winding Refn might sorta/kinda have a reasonable amount of contempt for Hollywood fashion models. Just call it a hunch.

Alien Farts

While the original Independence Day was a stupid blast, the sequel is the equivalent of a nasty two-hour alien fart.

Johnson & Hart

While it doesn't boast much along the lines of originality, Central Intelligence winds up being an above average action/comedy buddy movie thanks to its stars, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart. The guys belong together.

The Fright Stuff

Wan has tapped into something interesting with this franchise. Two films in, it's showing some decent durability and originality. It's also pretty scary.
