Review: Self/Less

Posted by: Tony Hinds  //  July 7, 2015 @ 7:10am

Welcome to B-movie territory. Self/Less is silly, brainless and paint-by-numbers in an endearing fashion. It's ideal lazy Sunday afternoon fare. The type of film you'd be happy to find playing on cable on a rainy day.

Review: Ender's Game

Posted by: Andrew Burns  //  November 1, 2013 @ 7:56pm

Well first off its not a sequel to 2012's Hunger Games. I normally wouldn't have to point that out at the beginning of a review but some people I've talked to and even some people at the screening for this film thought because it had 'Game' in the title they were from the same franchise.

Review: Shutter Island
