  • Ivan's Childhood

    Ivan's Childhood

    An early Tarkovksy that is surprisingly accessible. There are some dreams and flashbacks, other than that this was a pretty straightforward story about a young boy during wartime. The story and characters aren't that interesting, but the cinematography certainly helped to make the film stand out.

    Set during WWII, the film follows Ivan, a young boy who works for the Russians. When he is captured in Germany by a Russian regiment, they don't believe his story, but after checking in…

    We Summon the Darkness

    Director Marc Meyers seemed to be gunning for a dark comedy here, but delivers a film that isn't quite a slasher, nor a satanic horror. The build-up of setbacks is messy at best and the performances are a bit too silly and over-the-top to lend the film that exact balance of lightness and nastiness that makes a good dark comedy work.

    Three girls are on their way to a heavy metal concert. On the way there, a speeding van hits…

    James Wan's big return to the horror genre. After a disastrous superhero flick, he recharged his batteries and came back to do what he's good at: make freaky horror flicks. Malignant isn't a reinvention of Wan's trademark style, but it's a solid evolution that makes sure he isn't just making the same film over and over again.

    Madison is stuck in an abusive marriage, until one night a dark figure enters her house and kills her husband. From that moment…

    Prisoners of the Ghostland

    The mere idea of Sion Sono and Nicolas Cage making a film together made many cult fan drool uncontrollably. And sure enough, it did sound like a pretty perfect combination. This could very well become Sono's Sukiyaki Western Django, though I'm sure Sono himself would resent the Miike comparison. Sadly for him, Mike also did it better.

    The premise is pretty simple, which is normal considering this is more or less a Mad Max clone. The governor's daughter has run…
