Nature Calls

Scout’s honor: This movie should be funny.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Nature Calls finds writer/director Todd Rohal attempting to shoehorn the wonderfully, outlandishly absurd humor of his previous film, 2011's The Catechism Cataclysm, into a vehicle more mainstream. While it doesn't generate ill will, it does not work, try though the cast might.

The Thieves

Let it steal your heart and your evening.


Thriller

Rod Lott
When done right, few films can provide as much enjoyment as the heist picture. South Korea's The Thieves is one of them — epic in every sense of the word: in length, in scope and in entertainment.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

High school was tough.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
John Hughes, for all the love people heap on his ’80s teen movies, was far too easy on high school. Maybe your high school experience was different than mine — and, if so, congrats. For many of us, however, those years were a marathon of self-pity, heartache, passion and anything else you’d find on an album by The Smiths.

Kill for Me

Roomies, sheesh!


Thriller

Rod Lott
Rent’s a bitch. And that is why, six months after her best friend went missing, Amanda (Katie Cassidy, TV’s Arrow) finally gives in to getting another roommate, Hailey (Tracy Spiridakos, TV’s Revolution). The two college students turn out to have something in common, however: abusive men.

Lake Placid: The Final Chapter

Somewhat fun because it knows it bites.


Horror

Rod Lott
Lake Placid: The Final Chapter has swam to video shores, losing the numeral “4” somewhere along the way. Haven't seen Lake Placid 2 or 3? Didn't know they existed? Ooh, you are going to be so lost!

Amanda Earhart — Tell Me What You Want


Pop

Alyssa Grimley
Amanda Earhart’s sound is hard to categorize. Think today’s pop, but with fewer thump-thump club beats and synthesizers, traded for more undoctored vocals and guitar. Throw in a dash of country twang and a sprinkling of piano and violin, and that’s a start.
