short take_butter

Review: Butter


Any real-world comparisons between the Sarah Palin-like Laura Pickler (Jennifer Garner) and her African-American opponent, Destiny (Yara Shahidi), are encouraged in this over-churned movie that presents itself as a "cutthroat story of greed, blackmail, sex, and butter."

keep_the_lights_on

Review: Keep The Lights On

Film_WakeInFright

Review: Wake In Fright (1971)


Combining elements of Heart of Darkness , After Hours , and Groundhog Day , Ted Kotcheff's brutally brilliant Outback thriller follows the moral degradation, or perhaps redemption, of a snooty schoolteacher (Gary Bond) traveling from the backwater where he's assigned to Sydney for his Christmas vacation.

ShortTakes:WontBackDown

Review: Won't Back Down


Daniel Barnz's picture turns the American education crisis into a dumbed-down, Capraesque crowd-pleaser, with a malicious agenda to boot.

film:V/H/S

Review: V/H/S


As horror movie premises go, "found footage" tends to possess the most capacity for both pure, stomach-churning terror and woefully laughable shtick.
