TALE OF A TREK Wednesday, June 4, 2014
Lydia Smith's Walking the Camino: Six 
 Ways to Santiago is a sweet little movie 
 about a group of people varying in age and personality who take the 500-mile walk to Santiago de Compostela, with each having a profound experience. A few …
NIGHTMARE OF TOMORROWLAND Wednesday, June 4, 2014
Oh, hooray. Director Doug Liman has 
 given us exactly the kind of sci-fi action 
 drama we were hoping for from the indie filmmaker who sneaked up on the genre and booted it into the 21st Century with 2002's The Bourne Identity. Edge of …
"JUPITER ASCENDING" IS A HUNK OF COSMIC DEBRIS Wednesday, February 11, 2015
Jupiter Ascending is bloated sci-fi cheese, an intergalactic and extravagantly over-the-top saga that simultaneously wows and confounds. We can see every cent of a $150 million budget on the screen, …

It's been 60 years since Ishirô Honda unleashed Godzilla, his cinematic metaphor for the dangers of nuclear weapons upon the world. As timescales for reboots go, two generations sounds about right. (We're going to pretend that 1998 did not happen.) …
LONGEVITY SUCKS Wednesday, May 14, 2014
To live forever: Ah, the things one would see. The premise just reeks of cinematic potential, yet few vampire films successfully capture both the magic and melancholy that must accompany the blessing — and curse — of immortality. Director-writer …
