Coma

Its pacing will put you under.


Television series

Rod Lott
Four years ago, cable remade the perfectly fine ’70s sci-fi thriller The Andromeda Strain, based upon Michael Crichton’s thriller, but needlessly doubled the running time, thereby cutting its effectiveness in half.

The Ice House

A chilling mystery starring a pre-heat Daniel Craig.


Television series

Rod Lott
Currently riding high on the 007 tidal wave known as Skyfall, Daniel Craig enjoys one of his earliest roles in 1997’s The Ice House, a two-part, three-hour BBC murder mystery adapted from Minette Walters’ novel. Luckily for Craig’s legion of fans, he does not play the dead body found putrid, nude and devoured from the abdomen down.

End of Watch / Officer Down

Two new releases shine a light on the shield.


Thriller

Rod Lott
I'm a sucker for a good cop movie, and End of Watch is a great one. Had I seen it before its home-video release, it would have made my 2012 year-end list.

All Superheroes Must Die

Packs a mild punch.


Thriller

Rod Lott
At least All Superheroes Must Die isn't like every other comic book-inspired cinematic vision that currently serve as the buttered bread to Hollywood's rumbling stomach. That alone is not enough to make for a good movie, but it's a head start.

New shift

Comedian James Ngheim remakes the ’90s classic ‘Clerks’ ... kind of.


Features

Alyssa Grimley
For local comedian James Nghiem, doing a shot-for-shot remake of Kevin Smith’s influential indie comedy of 1994, Clerks, just sounded like a fun thing to do.
