Mania Review: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(December 17, 2014)
We come to the finale at last, and the bill is past due. We saw it from the very first Hobbit film, and it remains the central, tragic flaw in the whole trilogy. Namely that it ever was a trilogy to begin with: stretching the source material well past the

The Winter of '84: Runaway by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(December 17, 2014)
Even very smart people can drop the ball every now and then. The late Michael Crichton scored his share of winners at the box office -- notably Jurassic Park and The Great Train Robbery -- but not all of his ideas translated well to the big screen. Case in

The Winter of '84: Starman by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(December 16, 2014)
How wonderful it can be to watch a noted director stretch his boundaries. Even if the results aren't entirely successful (say with Steven Spielberg and The Color Purple), such efforts signal a maturation in the director's vision and a willingness to push p

The Winter of '84: Dune by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(December 15, 2014)
I re-watched David Lynch’s Dune over a week before sitting down to write this review, and I’m still not certain what the hell to say about it. It’s a mess: the kind of glorious, overly-ambitious disaster that only comes when a brilliant maverick gain

Mania Review: Exodus: Gods and Kings by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(December 12, 2014)
I’m not a religious man and I’ve generally found that you don’t need to embrace a particular theological viewpoint to make a good religious picture. You do, however, need to be engaged in the subject: that is, you need to have an opinion regarding li

The Winter of '84: 2010: The Year We Make Contact by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(December 09, 2014)
I think critics condemned 2010 almost as a matter of principle rather than any specific problem with the film. Its predecessor still stands as a landmark of science fiction and the high water mark for one of cinema’s most vaunted directors. Naturally, th

The Winter of '84: Beverly Hills Cop by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(December 08, 2014)
Everything that’s right and wrong about the Hollywood formula can be found in Beverly Hills Cop: the movie that made Eddie Murphy a superstar, cemented the modus operandi of producers Jerry Bruckheimer and Don Simpson, and emerged as the highest grossing

Sleepy Hollow: The Akeda Review by Michael Henley, Columnist and Critic
(December 07, 2014)
It’s not that nothing happens in “The Akeda.” Tons of things happen: the world threatens to end, Irving battles the Horseman of War, Ichabod and Katrina split, and Henry turns against his master, Moloch. Right down to its final moments, “The Akeda
