Triple 9 (2016)

Directed by John Hillcoat

Starring Chiwetel EjioforNorman ReedusCasey AffleckAnthony Mackie

Bros to the Close

Reviewed by Mason Manuel

There is nothing especially unique about a film centering around dirty cops, but a killer script and all-star cast make what could have been mundane a unique experience. Pair that along with expert director John Hillcote (The Road) and you get an entertaining crime drama that shows even those we rely on for protection can fall. (more…)

Anna Unbound (2015)

Directed by Bernd Porr

Starring Vasso Georgiadou, James Robson, Martin Sweeny

Indie Unchained

The study of the mind is a strange thing, more so when the brain in question is our own. When the validity of our own memories comes into question a harrowing effect is created, resulting in a constant state of unease.

Though the middle section drags with an extremely slow burn, those with the endurance to keep watching will be rewarded with a smart story and excellent finale. (more…)

The Hero We Need, The Merc We Deserve

Deadpool is one of those things that just won’t die, literally and metaphorically. After a botched debut at the hands of Gavin Hood’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, fans were worried that the merc with a mouth would never see the silver screen again. When the film finally made it out of development hell, rumors began to circulate that it was another terrible Fox comic film waiting to happen. Then preview screening reviews started to circulate with most “respectable” critics giving it a mediocre rating. But that’s where Deadpool sets itself apart from other movies. The film wasn’t made to give Ebert’s ghost a boner, it was made for the fans. This is a 2 hour love letter to the people who fought tooth and nail to see the beloved character get a second chance, and those people will be very pleased. But if you are an outsider to nerd dimension, you’ll probably want to steer clear.

Ah February. Love is in the air and the chocolate prices don’t care. Luckily movies are here to ease the pain. But they’re more than just that; some movies have a knack for getting us in the mood for the secks. My personal favorite part of Valentine’s Day, but to each their own. Every V Day needs a V night, so to help with that I put together this handy list of steamy/romantic movies just for you. You’re welcome. (more…)
