'Slow West' (2015) Movie Review

'Slow West' (2015) Movie Review

Darkly humorous and steeped in cynicism, Slow West is a genre exercise that doesn't really break new ground but effectively traverses existing territory.

'Poltergeist' (2015) Movie Review

'Poltergeist' (2015) Movie Review

Gil Kenan's 2015 remake of Tobe Hooper's Poltergeist has some technical suave, but its sloppy attention to character and story, and a repetitive need for jump scares, reduces this to little more than a dull and forgettable experience.

'Pitch Perfect 2' (2015) Movie Review

'Pitch Perfect 2' (2015) Movie Review

'The Connection' (2015) Movie Review

'The Connection' (2015) Movie Review

The Connection serves almost more as an homage to Mann, De Palma and Scorsese than anything else, and while it can't live up to its influences, it's nonetheless a rock solid period thriller.

'Hot Pursuit' (2015) Movie Review

'Hot Pursuit' (2015) Movie Review

Hot Pursuit is the kind of hot mess I thought Reese Witherspoon was putting in her rear view after the likes of Gone Girl and Wild, but perhaps she needed one more stinker to put the final nail in that coffin.
