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

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

In the Blood: Blu-ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(June 27, 2014)


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

Edge of Tomorrow Soundtrack Review by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(June 24, 2014)


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

The 25th Anniversary of Batman by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(June 23, 2014)
We're largely focused on 30th anniversary retrospectives around here, but today we're going to make an exception. 25 years ago, the world saw the release of Tim Burton's Batman: a multi-jillion-dollar-grossing, product-tie-in-from-hell, every-teenager-in-A

The LEGO Movie Blu-ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(June 23, 2014)


RoboCop Blu-ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnist and Critic
(June 13, 2014)


Mania Review: How to Train Your Dragon 2 by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(June 13, 2014)
Grown-ups. The secret is making them grown-ups. It’s a rather amazing concept, though Toy Story 2 and 3 did the same thing on a slightly subtler scale. Age your animated characters from childhood to adulthood, and let the drama write itself. That concept

Mondo: Jurassic Park Vinyl Soundtrack Review by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(June 12, 2014)


The Summer of '84: Gremlins by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(June 10, 2014)
When was the last time you saw the #1 and #3 box office performers of the year open on the same day? It’s preposterous in our current blockbuster-heavy era, but it actually happened on June 8th, 1984 when Joe Dante’s Gremlins squared off against Ivan R

The Summer of '84: Ghostbusters by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(June 09, 2014)
It’s easy to forget what a risky venture Ghostbusters was when it first came out. Comedies and effects pictures were uneasy relations at best, and combining the two always seemed to court disaster. Ghostbusters found the sweet spot where the two could ha

Mania Review: Edge of Tomorrow by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(June 06, 2014)
It’s hard to come down on any new movie – especially a science fiction movie – that tells its own story without either being part of a franchise or based on a bestselling book. Once upon a time, movies like Edge of Tomorrow were summer tent poles. No

Red River Criterion Collection Blu-ray Review by Robert T. Trate, Columnista and Critic
(June 03, 2014)


Non-Stop: Blu-ray Review by Tim Janson, Columnista and Critic
(June 02, 2014)


NECA’s Godzilla and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Figures by Tim Janson, Columnista and Critic
(June 02, 2014)
There’s little doubt that two if the biggest films of the Spring and Summer season will be the already released Godzilla and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes which will release in July. NECA has got you covered with new figures for both films. Today Mani

The Summer of '84: Star Trek III: The Search for Spock by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(June 02, 2014)
Ask any Trekkie and he'll tell you about the odd-even rule: odd-numbered Trek movies embarrass the franchise, while even-numbered Trek movies justify our faith in it. The biggest exception to this rule is Star Trek III, which had the unenviable task of fol

Mania Review: Maleficent by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(May 30, 2014)
With movies so eager to recycle previous content these days, it’s not much of a surprise that Disney picked one of its most popular animated characters for a live-action reboot. Of course, “live action” is a matter of opinion, since this new version

Dan Curtis’s Dracula: Blu-ray Review by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(May 27, 2014)
