Review: Zoom

PLOT: Three stories - an employee at a sex doll factory gets breast implants; a famous director decides to make an arthouse movie; a beautiful model starts writing a book - are inextricably linked together in startling ways. REVIEW: ZOOM is a thoroughly unexpected surprise, a movie that is - at the moment - completely under the radar. For what reason, I don't know. It's...

Review: White Girl

PLOT: A naive young woman moves to Queens, New York and is quickly swept up in a love affair with a neighborhood drug dealer, leading her down a path of addiction and abuse. REVIEW: After debuting at Sundance this past winter, WHITE GIRL might as well arrive carrying the label "the feel-bad movie of the year." It's a grimy, distressing slice of New York City life...

Review: Hell or High Water

PLOT: Two brothers plan a string of bank robberies in order to pay off the mortgage on their family farm while a marshal on the verge of retirement tracks them down. REVIEW: HELL OR HIGH WATER tells the simplest, most predictable tale possible and manages to keep us riveted every step of the way.

Review: Suicide Squad (Paul Shirey's take)

Read Chris Bumbray's review HERE! Since the first trailer dropped at Comic-Con a year ago, SUICIDE SQUAD has been on the radar of comic fans and non-fans alike. It was a risky move, taking a ragtag team of lesser-known characters in the DCEU zeitgeist and putting them together in their own tentpole superhero flick. Of course, this was pieced together before the tidal wave of...
