Latest Reviews

MOVIES

Amadeus

Both Shaffer and Forman sidestep traps of being too obvious or of oversimplifying. Consequently, both Mozart and Salieri emerge as complex figures, full of contrasting impulses.

Rick Chatenever, Santa Cruz Sentinel

Alita: Battle Angel

For as much as there is to enjoy in Alita, there's just as much that's tedious and kind of underwhelming - especially from a filmmaker who built his name on taking risks and turning scraps into treasure.

Britt Hayes, Crooked Marquee

Happy Death Day 2U

It's not only awesome, but it's pretty amazing that it even exists.

Britt Hayes, Crooked Marquee

DVD/STREAMING

Pokémon 4Ever

There's no point to prolonging the inevitable, except to pad the movie out to its barely feature-length run time.

Tasha Robinson, AV Club

Suburbia

An essential entry in early-'80s independent American cinema, Suburbia receives a radical Blu-ray upgrade from Shout! Factory, along with a pair of commentaries worth hearing in full.

Clayton Dillard, Slant Magazine

10 Things I Hate About You

Based to a great degree on William Shakespeare's much-filmed Taming of the Shrew, 10 Things I Hate About You is without question the teen movie to watch with your best girl or yarn carrying grandma.
