Review: BRICK MANSIONS Is Kind Of Fun, And Maybe That's Enough

Obviously, there's a bit of metatextual, non-diagetic solemnity to Brick Mansions, the final feature film starring one Paul William Walker the Fourth. Sure, we're going to get whatever scenes from Fast and Furious 7 they'll cobble together, but, really, this is... More »
  

Destroy All Monsters: BACK TO THE FUTURE and The Power Of Love

Review: TRANSCENDENCE Tries Too Hard, Fails Utterly

Eternal paradise is all well and good, but the notion of spending the afterlife floating on clouds while wearing white gowns, halos and playing the harp doesn't thrill people like it used to. Even organized Christianity, a wide swath of... More »
