  • How to Be Single

    How to Be Single 2016

    ★★★ Watched 05 May, 2016

    Quick Hit: How to Be Single is by no means a great romantic comedy. It follows a lot of cliches and is ultimately a generic female-centric romcom wrapped in the specifics of its cast's archetypal roles. But it's also an amiably enjoyable experience. Dakota Johnson acquits herself much well here, doing her best at the the impossible task of making people forget Fifty Shades of Grey while Rebel Wilson provides another amusing look at the typical overconfident, oversexed Rebel Wilson…

  • The Huntsman Winter's War

    The Huntsman Winter's War 2016

    ★★½ Watched 01 May, 2016

    Quick Hit: Like the film that precedes it, The Huntsman: Winter's War takes itself too seriously to be fun and isn't well-written enough to succeed without that popcorn style of enjoyment. Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, Chris Hemsworth and Jessica Chastain try mightily to lift this one but it's just too solemn for its own good. The visuals are great and some of the action sequences play nicely but it feels like a movie that is ashamed to be a fantasy action-adventure, which ultimately dooms the proceedings.

This fourth film in the famous Australian franchise is a $150 million arthouse post-apocalyptic spaghetti western, and a fabulous one at that. George Miller is as good as he's ever been behind the camera with this intense experience that turns many elements of the action genre on its head. The acting is top-notch -- including from…

  • The Cabin in the Woods

    The Cabin in the Woods 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 20 Apr, 2012 1

    Being that I am an entertainment reporter, it is very rare that I can go into a film knowing almost nothing about it. Before 2012, the last time I was able to do so was Cloverfield; with Cabin in the Woods however I was determined to do so. I had heard much about the struggle to get the film released, of course--filmed by Drew Goddard based on a script by Joss Whedon and himself, delayed to do 3D post-conversion and…
