Mania Review: Life Itself by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(July 04, 2014)
Roger Ebert was a hero of mine (try to contain your surprise), but it was only in the waning years of his life that the full breadth of the man become publicly apparent. A philosopher, a humanitarian and a writer of breathtaking skill, he and his late par

Mania Review: Deliver Us from Evil by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(July 04, 2014)
Exorcism movies, it must be noted, are surprisingly common. And with one glorious exception, they don’t usually come off very well. Deliver Us from Evil can’t escape the clichés and silliness that the subgenre inevitably holds, though for a while, dir

Mania Review: Earth to Echo by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(July 02, 2014)
Earth to Echo suffers from the problems you might expect: namely, adhering to the E.T. formula a little too closely for its own good. It also uses found footage techniques, which means you should probably pack your Dramamine. Combining these two ideas make

24: Live Another Day: 8:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. Review by Jessica Bauer, BlackBeltMama

PENNY DREADFUL: Grand Guignol Review by Jarrett Kruse, TV Critic
(June 30, 2014)


The Summer of '84: Conan the Destroyer by Rob Vaux, Manua Critic
(June 30, 2014)
The original Conan the Barbarian displayed a fiendish paradox. It was geared towards adolescent boys, but the crux of its appeal – gratuitous violence and lots of boobies – barred those self-same boys from entering the theater. In an era where Netflix

Mania Review: Transformers: Age of Extinction by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(June 28, 2014)
The Transformers movies present an eternal conundrum for me, one I’ve grappled with three times before and return again for a fourth. Rarely has criticism been more irrelevant that it has with this franchise. Look at the film’s Rotten Tomatoes page if

Mania Review: Snowpiercer by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(June 27, 2014)
I’m sure everyone is expecting a Transformers review, and we’ll have one presently, but we wanted to wait on it a bit… mostly because of the superior film opening opposite it. Snowpiercer deserves your money infinitely more than Michael Bay’s lates

Blu-ray Review: The Grand Budapest Hotel by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(June 26, 2014)
We don't cover a lot of Wes Anderson movies out here, with the exception of the animated Fantastic Mr. Fox. And yet his work constitutes a strange sort of science fiction, parallel universes populated by hapless heroes who aptly reflect their surreal surro

The Summer of '84: Top Secret! by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(June 25, 2014)
We generally regard Airplane! as the masterpiece of the Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker school of filmmaking: the kind where you just machine-gun gags at the audience with no thought for plausibility or causality. It’s a brilliant film, and certainly looks a lot

24: Live Another Day: 7:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. Review by Jessica Bauer, Blackbeltmama
(June 24, 2014)
With all but one drone left to be flown into the English Channel, Ian (Liam Garrigan) discovers something peculiar about the video feed of President Heller (William Devane) in Wembley Stadium. It’s a loop, which can only mean one thing. . . President He

The Summer of '84: The Karate Kid by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(June 24, 2014)
The Karate Kid kills us with sweetness, The story of a teenage boy who gets revenge on the local bullies by learning karate from a wizened neighborhood handyman could have been Death Wish: The High School Years. And for a few shaky moments, it is, as those
