    The Bye Bye Man

    Quick Hit: What a stupid, poorly executed and all-around terrible horror film. The Bye Bye Man, based on Robert Damon Schneck's story "The Bridge to Body Island" is memorably bad in just about every way. The film starts off with a bang thanks to a 1960s prologue sequence but falls apart almost immediately after thanks to uninspired characters, sketchy acting all around and a bargain bin horror monster who comes along with bad CGI and nothing interesting on the directing front. Give this one a hard pass; you'll be far better off.

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

    ★★★★★

    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…
