Movie Review: Krampus (2015)

Every Christmas season, two categories of people emerge from their Thanksgiving comas: Those who identify with Buddy the elf and those who identify with the Grinch or Ebenezer Scrooge. Some start listening to Christmas music before Halloween; some “Bah, humbug!” their way through shopping malls and tree lots. Yet, there’s also the forgotten few who…

Movie Review: The Boxtrolls (2014)

The distinction between being a monster on the inside and being a monster on the outside is clearly of great interest to the creative minds at stop-motion animation house Laika Entertainment. The dangers of oblivious parenting and morally wayward adults in general are also wells of narrative possibilities that the Laika masterminds return to often….

Movie Review: A Long Way Down (2014)

Suicide is no laughing matter.

Movie Review: Tammy (2014)

Melissa McCarthy is back doing what she does best — acting outrageous and profane. Okay, you won’t notice the profane from this first trailer for New Line Cinema’s Tammy but let me assure you, come redband trailer time it’ll be there. She plays the titular character who goes through a series of misadventures when she…

Movie Review: The Way Way Back (2013)

We’ve all seen at least a few coming-of-age summer films, and as a directorial debut for Nat Faxon and Jim Rash it certainly isn’t the most adventurous or original topic, but The Way Way Back is executed so wonderfully that it’s hard to find cause for complaint. It’s nostalgic without making you cringe (at least,…

Movie Review: Hitchcock (2012)

There’s a unique sprinkling of cinematic magic that touches the infamous shower scene in “Psycho” so memorably and effectively that watching the scene, dissecting the scene, experiencing the scene is great fun from any angle. So with this automatic reaction hardwired to my senses, I very much enjoyed seeing the scene recreated with moderate gusto…
