Cherry Bomb

It's a real dud.


Action

Rod Lott
With the John Cougar Mellencamp song "Cherry Bomb," our hearts were really thumping. With the film Cherry Bomb, however, it barely registers a pulse.

ATM / Brake

Boxy, but good.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Among independents, a recent movement has proven you can do an awful lot with very little — especially when limited to one set, as ATM and Brake nearly do.

Casa de Mi Padre

¡Grande! Assuming you can read.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Even if you hate it — and plenty will — you have to admit Casa de Mi Padre is a unique slice of cinema. Will Ferrell stars in this spirited parody of the Mexican telenovela. Not only is the comedy set in Mexico, but performed almost entirely in Spanish. Name one other A-lister who would dare commit to such an audience-limiting undertaking, foreign language and all. For a star of his stature to spoof something his fan base likely knows nothing about is so ballsy, it bounces.

Twins of Evil

Double, double, toil and trouble ...


Horror

Rod Lott
For me, the more desperate Hammer Film Productions got as audiences’ tastes changed in the early 1970s, the more fun their flicks became. That’s why 1971’s Twins of Evil is now one of my favorites from the legendary British studio, after digging into its Blu-ray debut from Synapse Films.

Your Sister's Sister

Because three's a crowd.


Comedy

Phil Bacharach
In a summer movie season jammed with reboots, remakes and raunch, it’s a welcome revelation to come across the heartfelt Your Sister’s Sister, in which low-budget indie meets comedy of manners.

Steve Niles' Remains

Put it to rest.


Horror

Rod Lott
While I'm glad to see that the horror cable channel Chiller is now making original movies, its first offering, the sci-fi "comedy" Alien Opponent, was nearly unwatchable. That film's director and writer, Colin Theys and John Doolan, return to helm the outlet's second, Steve Niles' Remains. Springing from rosier pastures — Niles' original comics — it's automatically better, rising to the level of mediocre. Perhaps their third time at bat, October's Dead Souls, will prove the proverbial charm?
