Never Rarely Sometimes Always Review

For a long time complex subjects have had to be dealt with in allegory and obscurity, working around their subjects due to commercial and cultural sensitivities.

Onward Review: Pratt and Holland Go on a Fantasy Quest

There are particular buttons in a movie, that when I see them, automatically elicit an emotional response. It’s Pavlovian – if you make a movie about fathers and sons, for example, I am almost certain to react with tears. It’s just hardwired into my moviegoing DNA. Thus, Pixar Animation Studios’ Onward was almost guaranteed to make …

The Invisible Man Review: As Disturbing as It Is Frightening

Horror, more than any other genre, it seems, has its hand directly on the pulse of the here and now. It has to be – our fears are changing and evolving, even while those base instincts remain the same. Our monsters may come with different, more modern costumes, but they are still monsters. The Invisible …

The Call of the Wild Review: Come for the Dog, Stay for Ford

Serious fans of Jack London’s The Call of the Wild novel will likely be disappointed in the latest adaptation by 20th Century Studios (formerly 20th Century Fox, now owned by Disney, and one of Fox’s final productions). The novel is surely dated and somewhat problematic now, with its treatment of North American indigenous people and the …

Emma Review: The New Adaptation of the Jane Austen Novel

How do we know a story is a classic? Is it by the sheer universality of the characters or dialogue to the point where they are referenced consistently in later works? Is it the insight and depth of the story and what it says about the human condition? Is it the fact that it has …

Downhill Review: The Force Majeure Remake with Ferrell and Louis-Dreyfus

Even if Downhill wasn’t based on a unique (and acclaimed) Swedish film, it would suffer in comparison to everything around it. Being borne from something as unique as Force Majeure — and the singular vision behind it — puts any adaptation as a disadvantage. But at every turn, writer-directors Rash and Faxon (The Descendants) pick the wrong …
