Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark

Don’t pass up the original.


Horror

Rod Lott
In general, I prefer the films of Guillermo del Toro that he doesn’t direct (“The Orphanage,” “Splice”) to the ones he does (particularly “Hellboy” and its sequel). That holds true for “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark,” which he only co-wrote and co-produced, ceding the director’s chair to newcomer Troy Nixey.

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ reminds one of the superior scary movie.


Horror

In general, I prefer the films of Guillermo del Toro that he doesn’t direct (“The Orphanage,” “Splice”) to the ones he does (particularly “Hellboy” and its sequel). That pretty much holds true for “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark,” which he only co-wrote and co-produced, ceding the director’s chair to newcomer Troy Nixey.

Mildred Pierce

Joan Crawford, you've been pwned.


Television series

Rod Lott
How does a director go from shooting a Barbie-dolls biography of doomed vocalist Karen Carpenter to a prestige miniseries starring perhaps the greatest screen actress of her generation?

Seeking Justice

Just in the Nic of time.


Thriller

Rod Lott
With little exception (National Treasure, Kick-Ass, about one minute of Grindhouse), there’s no denying that Nicolas Cage has spent the better part of the past decade in a career slump. Witness such critically lambasted underperformers as The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Season of the Witch, Bangkok Dangerous and, most recently, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.

Lockout

Like a lot of action in your sci-fi? 'Lock' it up!


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
No matter in what capacity, if Luc Besson's name is on a movie, I will not hesitate to watch. Why? The Transporter, District 13, Kiss of the Dragon, Taken, Unleashed, Ong-Bak, The Professional, La Femme Nikita and most sequels that spawned from those, that's why. (I'll forgive and forget From Paris with Love.)
