Mania Review: Red Dawn by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(November 21, 2012)
I can appreciate a remake when exectued with a certain amount of enthusiasm: a filmmaker who really loved the original can put his own spin on it while paying proper homage at the same time. In no way does that apply to the creators of the new Red Dawn. Th

Brave Blu-ray Five Disc Collectors Edition Review by Kimberly McCall, Critic

DVD Shopping Bag: Expendables 2 by Robert T. Trate, Columnist and Critic
(November 20, 2012)

Fall of 82: The Last Unicorn by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(November 19, 2012)
Amid the flurry of fantasy adaptations that followed The Lord of the Rings, it always surprised me that no one managed a new version of Peter S. Beagle’s The Last Unicorn. It may have been script problems or the rapid realization that bombing in this gen

Fall of '82: Q: The Winged Serpent by Rob Vaux, Mania Critic
(November 19, 2012)
Two names spring to the forefront when watching Q: The Winged Serpent: producer Samuel Z Arkoff and director Larry Cohen. Those boys knew how to deliver some grade-A cheese, the kind of thing that never wins awards but keeps Joe Bob Biggs in a state of ne
