Bigfoot

Toes the line of Syfy stupidity.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
At least Bigfoot does not waste viewers’ time in showing them Bigfoot. They have to wait one minute, tops, so if that’s all you ask of this Asylum release that premiered recently on Syfy, you’re golden.

Quick

Quick! See ‘Quick’!


Action

Rod Lott
Pop quiz, hotshot: What American movie would the South Korean filmmakers of Quick would like you to believe it emulates? The answer is not difficult, because it's written right on the box: Speed.

Searching for Sonny

At least two-thirds of it is worth seeking out.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Through nearly every frame of the indie crime comedy Searching for Sonny, it is obvious that writer/director Andrew Disney's debut would not exist if not for Wes Anderson's Bottle Rocket. That 1996 cult classic bears a quirky, amiable stamp in the way it deals with three lovable losers, which Disney has done his best to duplicate, right down to its distinctive beats and rhythms.

Vile

Not for the weak — duh.


Horror

Rod Lott
With Vile, we may have a new cinematic achievement: the first torture-porn film to open with a quote from Gandhi. Take that with a grain of salt — or perhaps the box of kosher salt poured into the wounds of some sad bastard by some demented madman in the prologue.

Mother's Day

Mama knows be(a)st.


Horror

Rod Lott
Until now, I had never seen the 1980 horror film Mother's Day, but its poster art has stayed top-of-mind when I first stumbled upon the VHS box in the early '80s, when the Sound Warehouse at Northwest Expressway and Rockwell Avenue — may it rest in peace — started renting movies in addition to keepin' the metro rockin' with a wide selection of LPs and cassettes.

Headhunters

Oslo can you go? To the depths of man’s darkest and deadliest desires, per this fun foreign crime thriller.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Compared to the continent of Europe, the rate of death by guns in America is six times higher. You wouldn’t know it based on the current wave of crime films from that half of the globe. Arguably kicked off by the worldwide success of Sweden’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, the movies generally are ballsier and bloodier and, therefore, better.

Grimm: Season One

These ain't no fairy tales.


Television series

Rod Lott
Marrying Hollywood's current fairy-tale craze to the ever popular crime procedural is Grimm. While it works on both levels, that it blends the two into a unified whole gives the concept so much fizz, as the 22 episodes of its five-disc first season indicate. This one's perfect for marathoning.

Naked Angels

This biker flick has no clothes.


Action

Rod Lott
For his productions, Roger Corman knew the market value of a great title. Naked Angels is one of them, but in the case, but it’s like putting icing on a pile of dog poop.
