The Critical Movie Critics

Pavi lives in Costa Rica to put off the inevitable day when she's rejected by every film company ever. She loves dancing and hates people that don't give a film their full attention. She also uses words like love and hate far too liberally.


Movie Review: Alive Inside (2014)

Few documentaries are as touching as Alive Inside, a film that realizes at its core that people don’t just learn from true stories; we’re moved by them. This is undoubtedly assisted by the fact that the film’s two points of focus are concepts we can all relate to in one way or another: Music and…

Movie Review: Sex Ed (2014)

Films — especially those in the genre of comedy — can often be enjoyable and interesting without really having anything of importance to say. Sex Ed, on the other hand, has something valuable to say, but its method of communication is somewhat lacking. That’s not to say it isn’t at all enjoyable or interesting, but…

Movie Review: The Paddy Lincoln Gang (2012)

The Paddy Lincoln Gang are a rock band who describe themselves as blood brothers, such is their loyalty to one another. Led by charming Irishman Rob McAlister, and consisting of three other members — Rick, Ed and Tom — the L.A. band are seemingly going from strength to strength, beginning to truly make their mark…

Movie Review: The Legend of Hercules (2014)

The Greek myth of Hercules’ twelve labors is one many are familiar with, and failing that, we are all at least familiar with the 1997 Disney classic, “Hercules,” that will always have a place in our hearts.
