Storage 24

Blokes and the beast.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Britain’s on high alert after a plane falls from the sky from unknown causes. Terrorist attack, perhaps? At a 24-hour storage facility — hence the film’s title, Storage 24 — the ensuing crash has locked down its security system, effectively trapping people inside. Oh, and one gnarly alien.

The Great Magician

Now you see it ...


Drama

Rod Lott
With magic-themed movies The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and Now You See Me on the way, Hollywood is all about the abracadabra these days. If that exposes more eyeballs to 2011’s The Great Magician, good.

Depth & Current — Transient


Rock

Joshua Boydston
One gets the feeling that Depth & Current understands the dangers of having too much of a good thing.

Zero Dark Thirty

The real torture is its incredible tension.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Don’t trust the viewers.

Trusting them appears to be the cardinal sin of Zero Dark Thirty, a masterful, absorbing film dramatizing the CIA's 10-year hunt for Osama bin Laden. It has been at the center of controversy for its depiction of U.S. intelligence agents using “enhanced interrogation techniques,” otherwise known as torture.

The Hitt Boyz — AlphaCat


Rock

Zach Hale
Let’s go ahead and get this out of the way: The band is called The Hitt Boyz, whose latest release is an EP titled AlphaCat, and, yes, the artwork is kind of amazing.

The Thief of Bagdad

Still magical, nearly 90 years later.


Action

Rod Lott
With the Cohen Film Collection, we may have another Criterion Collection-level provider of classic movies in the making, if its Blu-ray presentation of The Thief of Bagdad is any indication.

13 Eerie

Zombies declare war on science.


Horror

Rod Lott
When viewers insert the DVD of 13 Eerie into their player, and the menu loads, they’ll be greeted by a crude but cute animation of the cover’s creature doing a little jig. I don’t think it’s meant to be amusing as I took it, but it is a sign that the movie isn’t your average, ordinary zombie film.
