Movie Review: Jonah Lives (2012)

In 1973’s “The Exorcist,” 1986’s “Witchboard” and 2014’s “Ouija” (among others), we learned that playing with a Ouija board can expose you to some really dangerous spirits. In countless other films (horror or otherwise), we learned that bored teenagers conjure up some pretty bad ideas to create excitement in their lives. In 2012’s new-to-DVD horror…

Furious 7 (2015) by The Critical Movie Critics

Movie Review: Furious 7 (2015)

It’s more than a little strange to get suddenly swept up in the events of a series for the first time while watching the seventh installment, but that’s what happened with Furious 7, a gloriously bonkers and awesomely ambitious entry in a franchise that previously always seemed to come up a bit short. It’s clear…

Movie Trailer: Poltergeist (2015)

As a parent I thought it was common knowledge that at NO times are questionable dolls, figurines, puppets, action figures (or any vessel that loosely represents a body that a malevolent spirit could wish to inhabit) allowed in the house. You shouldn’t live in a house built upon a graveyard either. The Bowen family screwed…

Movie Trailer #2: Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

I simply don’t care what the overall premise is for Warner Bros.’ upcoming apocalyptic reblend, Mad Max: Fury Road. And after watching this latest trailer, I don’t think the studio cares much either. Front and center is two minutes of what may amount to be some of the craziest desert chase action sequences ever captured…

The Gunman (2015) by The Critical Movie Critics

Movie Review: The Gunman (2015)

Pierre Morel certainly knows a thing or two about molding celebrated thespians into B-movie action heroes, having previously kicked off Liam Neeson’s twilight transformation into a growly ass-kicker with the first “Taken” flick, but not everyone can make the transition so smoothly. Sean Penn seems an even unlikelier B-pic headliner than Neeson once was, considering…

Movie Trailer:  Spectre (2015)

Movie Trailer: Spectre (2015)

Bond is back. And just in time it seems to uncover a secret that threatens his future but is unlockable from his past.

The Barber (2014) by The Critical Movie Critics

Movie Review: The Barber (2014)

The Barber is a B-movie’s B-movie. While many of the tropes those well-acquainted with this type of film have come to know are present, several of them are approached uniquely or service the plot in ways far less tired than the tropes themselves. Truer to form still is the ridiculously overdone ending, another familiar element…
