Mania Review: John Wick by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(October 24, 2014)
If we’ve learned nothing else from the movies, it’s that you don’t mess with a man’s dog. Because said man is likely some supreme ultimate bad-ass who goes on to kill you, your idiot buddies and the massive criminal organization to which you belong

Mania Review: Ouija by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(October 24, 2014)
Nobody out there really expects Hasbro’s misbegotten “let’s make movies out of all our classic board games” notion to produce any quality films. But Ouija, at least, might have skated by on its natural connection to the occult. Show us some dippy k

The Purge: Anarchy Blu-Ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(October 20, 2014)


Mania Review: KILL THE MESSENGER by Jarrett Kruse, Mania Critic
(October 19, 2014)


Mania Review: The Book of Life by Rob Vaux, Columnist and Critic
(October 18, 2014)
Guillermo Del Toro has always been more than a purveyor of horror films, which is why his name always elicits attention. The Book of Life has his stamp all over it, even though he basically just angeled the project for co-writer and director Jorge Gutierre

Mania Review: FURY by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(October 17, 2014)


Mania Review: Birdman by Rob Vaux, Columnist and Critic
(October 17, 2014)
How does one begin to discuss a movie like Birdman? Its technical features rank among the most ambitious of the year, its storyline is consistently fascinating, its themes delve into heavy notions about art and relevance, and its characters prove irresisti

COMPANEROS Blu-ray Review by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(October 10, 2014)
Movie trailers, by and large, are braggadocios affairs. Standing astride silver screen soap boxes, these carnival hucksters shill tall tales hoping to ensnare ticket sales. Occasionally so much swagger is brought to bear that concerned viewers must check t

Mania Review: Dracula Untold by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(October 10, 2014)


The Rover DVD Review by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(October 06, 2014)


Transformers: Age of Extinction Blu-ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(October 06, 2014)


Mania Review: Gone Girl by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(October 03, 2014)
I'm not entirely convinced that Gone Girl is the masterpiece everyone says it is. Director David Fincher specializes in intricate puzzle boxes that sometimes come at the expense of character, and hot-button topics that sometimes wander into pointless agita

Mania Review: Annabelle by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(October 03, 2014)
Horror movies can often be graded on their ability to avoid the Stupids: a condition afflicting genre characters of all varieties that forces them to do patently illogical things just to keep the plot moving. “Spend a night in a haunted house? What can g

Vengeance Is Mine Criterion Blu-ray Review by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(October 02, 2014)


Mania Review: The Equalizer by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(September 26, 2014)
I’m not necessarily proud of my affection of Antoine Fuqua, but when I need my righteous anger buttons pushed, there’s no one better qualified to push them. He specializes in brutally effective exploitation cinema, featuring grim, righteous heroes deli

THE INNOCENTS Criterion Blu-ray Review by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(September 23, 2014)


The Fall of '84: All of Me by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(September 22, 2014)
Steve Martin and Carl Reiner had a very fruitful working relationship in the late 70s and early 80s, with the results ranging from the instant classic to the well-intentioned misfire. All of Me was the last film they made together, and it easily proves the

Mania Review: Space Station 76 by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(September 19, 2014)
Behold, your stoner comedy for the fall! It’s almost as hard to hate Space Station 76 as it is to recommend it without an apologetic grin. It spins a one-joke premise into 90 minutes worth of shaggy dog comedy: inventive in how it reworks the same basic

Mania Review: The Maze Runner by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(September 19, 2014)
Every good story depends on the judicious application of questions and answers. Indeed, the entire art of storytelling hinges on positing an interesting question and providing a satisfactory answer. Will Hamlet avenge his father? Is Elizabeth going to end

The 'Burbs Steelbook Blu-ray Review by Chuck Francisco, Columnista and Critic
(September 16, 2014)
When a legendary director like Joe Dante (Gremlins, The Howling) collaborates with the mad geniuses at Arrow Films what follows is a magical maelstrom of must own Blu-ray madness. Flying at fans this week, resplendent with killer artwork and rare special f

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(September 11, 2014)


Pumpkinhead (Collector's Edition) Blu-ray Review by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(September 09, 2014)


WILLOW CREEK Blu-ray Review by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(September 09, 2014)


The Fall of '84: The Warrior and the Sorceress by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(September 09, 2014)
The most important thing about The Warrior and the Sorceress – the one element that absolutely no other movie in the world can offer – is the sight of a woman with four breasts. It’s featured prominently on the poster, along with David Carradine give

The Fall of '84: Ninja III: The Domination by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(September 08, 2014)
We’re doing these 30-year retrospectives in part because we love the 80s… and few movies embody the 80s in such a gloriously awful fashion as Ninja III: The Domination. It distilled the decade down to diamond-hard pellets, dumps them into a shotgun, an
