Argo (2012)

“Had the film been helmed by a more seasoned director, or even a relative unknown, it never would have taken home the big prize. Because ultimately, the most interesting thing about Argo is that Ben Affleck directed it.”

Kick-Ass (2010)

“Most action films are ludicrous to a degree, but this one is almost a cartoon. I felt about as much suspense over Hit-Girl’s fate as I feel concern for Wile E. Coyote’s health after a boulder falls on him.”

The Canyons (2013)

“Lohan’s performance in The Canyons is orders of magnitude better than her listless take on Elizabeth Taylor. In fact, this might possibly be her best performance ever. And I fully realize that’s not saying a whole lot.”

Spring Breakers (2013) Text Review

“I’m not sure Spring Breakers is about much of anything, other than its own stunt casting. As the continuing fame of Miley Cyrus proves, there’s nothing the American public eats up quite as voraciously as former teen queens shedding their good girl images, and in that respect, Spring Breakers does not disappoint.”

Choke (2008)

Iron Man had come out a few months prior, but at the time, writer-director Clark Gregg was still best known for being on The New Adventures of Old Christine. Which is fitting, because Choke plays like Fight Club if Fight Club were a CBS sitcom.”

A Scanner Darkly (2006)

“Compared to most adaptations of the works of legendary sci-fi author Philip K. Dick (Total Recall, Blade Runner, Next, to name just a few), the animated film A Scanner Darkly is extremely faithful to its source material. But that’s not necessarily a good thing.”
