Movie Review: The Endless (2017)

Ignoring Thomas Wolfe’s observation that “You can’t go home again,” brothers Justin (Justin Benson, “Dementia”) and Aaron Smith (Aaron Moorhead, “Contracted: Phase II”), as an expression of completion, return to a California cult from which they had escaped ten years ago. Written and directed by Benson and Moorhead, The Endless is a low-budget psychological drama…

Movie Review: Inoperable (2017)

Christopher Lawrence Chapman’s debut feature, Inoperable, is a horror film about a 30-year-old woman struggling to escape from a half-deserted hospital while “the T-rex of hurricanes” sweeps overhead. The opening titles are like a scratchy throwback to David Fincher’s “Se7en,” and the end credits splash the screen with comic book text. Neither bookend is relevant…

Movie Review: Happy Death Day (2017)

At its heart is high school senior Rob (John Karna) and his world…

Movie Review: Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

Edge of Tomorrow drops us into the middle of a war against an alien invasion as much as it does its protagonist, Major William Cage (Tom Cruise). We don’t know how or why these aliens invaded, and we don’t see the world react to their initial arrival, already making the film differ from the majority…

Movie Review: Plus One (2013)

Don’t look too deeply for an explanation to Plus One, Dennis Iliadis’ foray into the science-fictioney thriller realm. You’ll hurt your brain if you do even worse than the dull, damaged brains of everyone starring in the movie. When a meteorite hits the ground it couldn’t have come any sooner for David (Rhys Wakefield, “The…
