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

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

Justice League: Throne of Atlantis Arrival Date by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(December 04, 2014)


The Fall of '84: Night of the Comet by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(November 18, 2014)
The problem with reviewing cult films is similar to the problem with reviewing comedies: you’re attempting to apply objective criteria to what boils down to a subjective experience. The appeal of cult movies defies analysis to some extent. Beyond saying

Blu-ray Shopping Bag: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Cut by Robert T. Trate, News Editor
(November 18, 2014)


The Fall of '84: Missing in Action by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(November 17, 2014)
I'll say this much for Chuck Norris: the man is consistent. He was just as insane thirty years ago as he is today, and listening to his thunderingly ignorant far-right xenophobia these days isn't nearly as fun as watching up there on the screen. Hence, Mis

THE VANISHING: Criterion Blu-ray Review by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic

The Fall of '84: Oh, God! You Devil by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(November 12, 2014)
Somewhere deep down, I think we all want God to be like George Burns: a sweet Borscht Belt guy who likes giving us a hard time, but really loves us and wants us to do well. Burns struck gold with the original Oh, God! and the trick was good enough to float

Blu-ray Shopping Bag: STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS: THE LOST MISSIONS by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(November 11, 2014)


The Fall of '84: A Nightmare on Elm Street by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(November 10, 2014)
Thirty years ago this week, a horror movie erupted onto the national scene amid a flurry of controversy and a ton of pointed fingers. Parental groups were in an uproar over its violence and inappropriate themes. Gene Siskel condemned it in the loudest poss

The Fall of '84: The Terminator by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(October 27, 2014)
Not every classic seems that way when it first arrives. Many beloved 80s films barely raised an eyebrow during their theatrical release, even those that turned a profit. The video revolution gave them a second chance at life and allowed them to find the st

Shock-O-Rama: Two Blobs, Same Universe? by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(October 21, 2014)
Let's open the door to potential horror credibility blasphemy- I unabashedly dig the 1988 remake of The Blob. As the paper presses slam to a grisly halt, the evening watchman stuck in the teeth of their gears, long time readers are perhaps confused. I've w
