If there is one genre that Hollywood has tried over and over again, with some success and countless failures, it is the comic-book hero.  But unlike others, The Avengers is not just about one comic-book hero, but several.  Because of this, the movie is also unlike the others.  This probably explains its' wild success, leading it ...

With Clive Barker's last few films falling on deaf ears and empty seats, writer/director Victor Salva ("Rite of Passage," "Powder," Clownhouse") stepped up to attempt to fill the gap. "Jeepers Creepers" (2001) has much the same dark, foreboding tone that Barker's films possess and much the same degree of s... Read More

There are many film critics who have written about the uneven popularity of horror films. Horror films will be popular for a few years, drop off in business, and then see a resurgence. It's also fairly easy to track the trends within horror films. There is a current notion of bringing back the brutal and no-nonsense films of the 70s and we'... Read More

(Richard "Rick" Augusztin)  09/24/2012 9:53 PM EST
Although 10 Years started off on the slower side for me, as the movie progressed I realized why; the heart of the film lies with the characters' shared back stories, and how each defies or yields to the expectations set for them long ago.  That's exactly what writer/director Jamie Linden has done.  If you don't have characters...

An enjoyable life drama Trouble with the Curve opens in theaters nationwide with a stellar cast playing likeable characters in this modern day sports story.  Drawing on an age old message concerning separated family members the film should hit a home run with those who have been dealing with the problem and need a nudge toward reconciliation.&...
