  1. Review: Shallow Imitation Game Lacks Convincing Thesis and Purpose

    The Benedict Cumberbatch Show, for better or worse.

    The biopic banner covers every inch of The Imitation Game, ultimately to the point that the film is more concerned with the prestige that comes with the true story/biopic genre than it is with telling a compelling story of Alan Turing’s accomplishments and his tragic downfall.

  2. Review: You’ll Never Escape The Babadook, The Best Horror Film of 2014

    For those of you looking for a chiller of a movie this Thanksgiving, the best horror film in theaters now (and this year) has nothing to do with scary dolls or board games. The Babadook is a terrifying monster movie which comes from a children’s storybook with pop-up pages. And this monstrous haunting will absolutely haunt your dreams; not the monster itself, but the very things this monstrous presence can force his vessel to do, despite their resistance.

  3. Review: Olympic Swimming Documentary Touch The Wall Celebrates Female Friendship And Strength

    100% Couch Potato friendly.

    I am not an athletic person. In highschool I loathed PE with a pure, righteous anger, and I still haven't gotten over my ensuing hate for organized sports. Given my proud couch potato status, I was surprised by the ways in which Touch the Wall, a documentary about Olympic swimming champs Missy Franklin and Kara Lynn Joyce, still resonated with me.

  4. 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. Unfortunately, the film’s process proves sporadic at best; and by the end, I was almost angry with writers The Vicious Brothers and director Colin Minihan for wasting my time.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Review: Bradley Cooper is The Elephant Man in Broadway Revival

    And now I am emotionally compromised.

    Previews for The Elephant Man have begun. After thirty-three years, the Tony Award-winning play has returned to the Booth Theatre, where the original Broadway production was staged. It is back -- and words can’t begin to describe how wonderful it is.

  8. Big Hero 6 Is A Feel-Good Superhero Movie For The Whole Family

    Heart and humor.

    While releasing two big pictures the same weekend can often be trouble at the box-office, I wouldn’t be surprised if the dual release of Interstellar and Big Hero 6 this weekend proves to be the perfect pairing for movie watchers.

  9. My Little Pony: The Complete Series DVD Review

    Little horse, big nostalgia.

    Before bronies, before pegasisters, before Weird Al and his cheese accordion cutie mark, there was the '80s My Little Pony series. And now the classic MLP has a hoof-up on its popular modern reboot, Friendship is Magic: the entire original show is finally available on one four-disc DVD set.

  10. Review: Fantasy Life Is a Mind-Numbingly Adorable Escape From Reality

    IT'S SO FLUFFY I'M GONNA DIE.

    Like the cute, simplistic aesthetic of Animal Crossing but wish it were a little more goal-oriented? Enjoy the wide scope of The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim but wish it were fluffier and just a little bit more manageable? Fantasy Life, which comes out for the Nintendo 3DS tomorrow, is the adorable middle ground you've been waiting for.
