After watching dozens of found footage films, I’ve developed something of a pet peeve with the format. So many entries in this horror subgenre feature characters so deeply flawed (or simply obnoxious) that they come across as grating and annoying. And when you don’t like...

Big New Releases!

The Age of Adaline - This romance title involves a woman who has an accident and soon finds that she can no longer age. Nearly 80 years later, she falls for a guy, but struggles with letting him in on her secret. Reviewers were split on the movie. Some found it to be a sweet concoction that would appeal to those who enjoyed similar titles like The Time Traveller’s Wife. Others called it ridiculous and absurd, wasting a good cast. It stars Blake Lively, Harrison Ford...

Big New Releases!

7 Minutes - What appears to be a quick, 7 minute heist goes horribly awry in this independent thriller. Not that the perpetrators are criminal masterminds; they’re three teen buddies forced into the job by a psychopathic drug lord. Reviews were weak for this effort. While some appreciated the visual style and editing tricks on display, most found the...

Running Time: 103 min.

Here’s a movie that will likely never earn the endorsement of the Southeast Asia Tourism Board. No Escape depicts a nuclear family unit from America in a foreign land that must fight for survival and endure some of the toughest hardships imaginable. Admittedly, the movie is effective in spots, but the approach taken to the material left this viewer more than a little conflicted.

Jack Dwyer (Owen Wilson) is a down-on-his-luck engineer who has taken a job in Southeast Asia to help build a water purification refinery. Mere hours after arriving with his wife Annie (Lake Bell) and daughters, a violent coup breaks out. With foreigners being...

Big New Releases!

6 Ways to Die - This small, action B-movie follows a man beaten by a notorious drug kingpin. Yearning for revenge, the protagonist comes up with an elaborate plan and hires 6 assassins to help him destroy the life of his nemesis. Reviews were mixed - some called it an acceptable if unremarkable genre picture, while others found it too weak and derivative to recommend. The cast includes Vinnie Jones, Dominique Swain, Vivica...
