    ‘The Lazarus Effect’ resurrects nothing but boredom

    It’s easy to be disillusioned by bland, scare-free horror films like The Lazarus Effect. Of course, not every horror film makes Ouija look like The Exorcist, but perhaps we can use this as a learning exercise. Rather than cursing the darkness, let’s light a little candle and look at “Three Things We Can Learn from The Lazarus Effect.” More

    Supernatural, Ep. 10.06 to 10.11 doesn’t give many storylines their due

    The focus on families other than that of the Winchesters, particularly the appearance of Crowley’s mother Rowena, has been an interesting turn to the season, as has the exploration of the continuing effects of the Mark of Cain. However, other storylines with potential have wrapped themselves up too quickly, getting unfairly shortchanged in the process. More

    Childhood memories and explaining ‘Donnie Darko’

    The gateway movie to my full-blown film addiction was Richard Kelly’s Donnie Darko (2001). Kelly has yet to create a film that matches the mood or magnitude of his first success.

    Why Are Christopher Nolan’s Movies So Fun to Argue About? The release of a Christopher Nolan movie, even one that “underperforms” at the box office like this week’sInterstellar, is by far the most fervently talked about work of art for several news cycles. Even in the face of constant barrages of Taylor Swift headlines, Nolan’s […] More
