Attack The Block
Marco Duran |  Jul 28, 2011
The South London housing estates, or "blocks", have always been a great place to stage a film, especially to a Yankee like me.  When I think of London, I think of some place nice and cl... | Full Review...
Another Earth

Independent films rarely take on science-fiction.  Reason is because sci-fi films usually require lots of money for sets and effects.  On the other hand, having angsty conversations about yo... | Full Review...
Jane Eyre
Marco Duran |  Mar 14, 2011
Charlotte Bronte's classic novel has endured as a mainstay on many reading lists and has only been gaining in popularity. Since 1910, it has surprisingly produced 18 different film versions, not t... | Full Review...

Try as he may, Robert Zemekis cannot find his way out of the uncanny valley - that deep gorge where his other forays into motion-capture like The Polar Express, Beowulf and A Christmas Carol have fall... | Full Review...

Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant
Marco Duran |  Oct 24, 2009

First of all, it's cards on the table time. Zombieland is only the second zombie flick I've ever seen. I know. I know. I'm sorry. 28 days later is the other one. Not even... | Full Review...
