  2. Review: You Should Probably Pick Getting Probed By Aliens Over Seeing Extraterrestrial

    Extraterrestrial starts with an impressive prologue which is at once shocking, scary, and darkly humorous, suggesting the possibility that this could be an original (or at least refreshing) take on the alien genre.

  3. The Mary Sue Interview: A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night Director Ana Lily Amirpour & Star Sheila Vand

    Talking Iranian lady vampire flicks is always the best.

    A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is one of the coolest movies of the year. Written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour, the film stars Sheila Vand as a chador-wearing vampire preying on the men of Bad City in a mash-up of western and vampire film, which is also surprisingly funny and romantic. Vand and Amirpour were in New York this week for the release of the film, and talked about their mysterious character, dangerous love, and the benefits of working with a cat on set.

  4. Review: A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night Is Weird, Wild Stuff

    A cult classic in the making.

    If the title A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night sounds like the set-up for a joke, you’d be right. The new Iranian-language, American-produced, western-inspired vampire movie is one of the weirdest and funniest movies of this season - which also happens to have a surprisingly compelling love story. The movie is one of the most interesting movies of the year, which features a star0making performance by Sheila Vand and a stunning feature film debut by writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour.

  7. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Is The Best Film In The Series So Far

    This incomplete but promising film is definitely only part of the story.

    The Hunger Games films have been an interesting example of an incredibly successful series where the films progressively improve with each installment.
