    Truth or Dare?: A Critical Madness

    ★★★½

    After seeing this and Killing Spree, methinks a woman done Tim Ritter wrong. Right?

  • The Evil Within

    The Evil Within

    ★★★½

    For a trust-fund project and directorial debut, this certainly is ambitious. And you totally can't tell it was made by a guy addicted to meth.

    I'm kidding — you totally can tell it was made by a guy addicted to meth.

    War for the Planet of the Apes

    ★★★★

    This year's Mad Max: Fury Road, meaning it's gonna crack its way into Best Picture conversation and, ultimately, the nominees. It has a slow but purposeful start, but the final act is so rewarding. At one point, I caught myself saying, "Wow."

    When the end credits came up, starting with "directed by Matt Reeves," the audience began applauding. Seriously, how often does that happen nowadays? Especially in the dead of summer at 11 a.m.?

    The Loreley's Grasp

    ★★★

    Enjoyable Spanish horror, but yes, it could stand to have a Blind Templar or two.
