    Criminal 2016

    ★★ Watched 08 Jul, 2016

    Quick Hit: Criminal isn't so much abjectly awful as it is ambitious in its mediocrity. An interesting concept exists within Douglas Cook and David Weisberg's script revolving around the concept of identity and memory but it's buried in a half-hearted story featuring shorted characterization and dull, lifeless performances from most of the cast. Director Ariel Voorman does what she can with the material but there just isn't enough here to make it particularly memorable or worth recommending.

    ★★★★★ 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…
