Frozen
Reviewed by PvtCaboose91
"The cold never bothered me anyway." The promotional campaign for 2013's Frozen has been selling an entirely different motion picture, which thankfully renders the finished product a delightful surprise. Whereas the trailers foreground b... More

Escape from New York
Reviewed by PvtCaboose91
"I don't give a fuck about your war... or your president." With its restrained direction and deliberate pacing, 1981's Escape from New York may be a tough sell to contemporary viewers accustomed to fast-moving, exciting action flicks. Ho... More

Interstellar
Reviewed by Joshua "LF"
Director Christopher Nolan and the cast have taken great lengths to insure complete secrecy for one of the year's most anticipated films; Interstellar. I feel that it is only fair to respect this by writing a non-traditional review. There... More

Brave
Reviewed by PvtCaboose91
"If you had a chance to change your fate, would you?" Though a definite improvement over the bitterly disappointing Cars 2, 2012's Brave is destined to be a polarising movie. While visually majestic and fun, it lacks the innovation and s... More

The Time Machine
Reviewed by Villiana
My first review :P Warning, plenty of spoilers :) I didn't know before this story in the original, so I have to admit that the Time Machine plowed my brain, like a herd of hurtling buffaloes. I still don't know exactly what to write,... More

Bill Cosby: Himself
Reviewed by JPHOLT
I grew up listening to Bill Cosby's records and watching The Cosby Show. He is still, to this day, one of my favorite comedians. This standup routine is hilarious. Each time that I watch it, I still laugh to the point that my sides hurt.... More

Interstellar
Reviewed by Bml93
There are minor spoilers here, so be careful. It's a film that's really, really hard to talk about without going into major plot points, but I'm going to try my best to keep it at a small, general level. Christopher Nolan's Interstellar... More

The Counselor
Reviewed by BradWesley123
Warning: Anyone going to see this movie because of the cast and crew's pedigree, it's not worth it. This is a bad movie, going by the title of this review, it's the worst movie I've seen all year. Some people may bring up Grown Ups 2, but I... More

The Wasp Woman
Reviewed by kathy
So bad it's good! Once I saw the DVD cover I knew I had to see this film as I love really bad horror films. I was not disappointed. The acting is wooden, the dialogue even worse, the musical score is cheap-sounding and "tinny", and the lead... More

The Fifth Element
Reviewed by Iceviper
I kind of stumbled onto this movie years ago, being familiar with only Bruce Willis. This was pretty much the beginning of my infatuation with Mila Jovovich so I could never dis the movie. I thought that Gary Oldman played a excellent ba... More

Planet of the Apes
Reviewed by The Flagship
The original Planet of the Apes is an ambitious and thought-provoking science fiction film most remembered for Charlton Heston's theatrical performance. Even by today's standards it still holds its own and I couldn't think of any reason why... More

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Reviewed by Joshua "LF"
Apes on Horses (also known in some territories as Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) might just be the most intelligent Summer blockbuster to be released in years. Less about the explosions, and more about the characters themselves, Apes on H... More

New Haven-style pizza
Reviewed by Iceviper
Some of the best apizza I've ever had has come from Pepe's. Although I'm southern Italian decent and my families home made pizza is more the "Sici" (thick crust) style, Pepe's is absolutley fabulous. If you are ever in the area of any of ... More

Papers, Please
Reviewed by GruntLogic
I really feel like this game is establishing a new genre, because I don't know of anything quite like it. The Bureaucracy-em-up. You take on the role of a border check-point processing drone, in what feels like an early 80's Soviet sate... More

Green Lantern
Reviewed by Leader Vladimir
In my opinion, Green Lantern was one of the best 2011 movies. I don't know why people keep bashing it. I know it's not Harry Potter; but come on, it's not that terrible either. Superhero films have always been at conflict between fantasy an... More

The Running Man

"I'm not into politics. I'm into survival. " Mere months following the release of Predator in mid-1987, Arnold Schwarzenegger was back in action for The Running Man; a fast-paced, futuristic action movie which takes a satiric poke at TV,... More

Everyone knows the story of boy meets girl, boy loses girl. However, there is more to this story here. Set in turn-of-the-century Vienna, Norton is Herr Eisenheim, famous magician (rather, illusionist), whose stage performance has captivate... More
