Painted Skin: The Resurrection

Your ‘Skin’ looks lovely.


Action

Rod Lott
While not fully lucid, Painted Skin: The Resurrection excels from a standpoint of visuals. Whether that’s worth an entire viewing depends on your tolerance for fantastical whimsy.

Silent Night / Silent Night, Deadly Night / Silent Night, Deadly Night Part II

You better watch out!


Horror

Rod Lott
Aside from re-creating two or three minor scenes, Silent Night in no way could be called a true remake of 1984's extremely controversial Silent Night, Deadly Night. Flicks about a killer Santa Claus have existed before and since; if not for the value of a brand-name, this could be just another.

The Collection

Gotta catch ’em all!


Horror

Rod Lott
What began as an intended Saw prequel has spawned a franchise of its own, now that 2009’s The Collector has begat The Collection. I hope in my heart of hearts that The Collection begets a third chapter — The Collective, perhaps?

Mad Max Trilogy

From the days when one could root for Mel Gibson.


Action

Rod Lott
Prior to Lethal Weapon, Mel Gibson was best-known as the hero of a postapocalyptic Down Under in 1979’s Mad Max, 1981’s The Road Warrior and 1985’s Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Blu-rays of each come housed in one of those unnecessary tins via Warner Home Video's new Trilogy set.

The Last Exorcism Part II

What possessed them?


Horror

Rod Lott
Unlike many moviegoers, 17-year-old farm girl Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell, The Day) has no memory of the events of The Last Exorcism, a found-footage smash of three years prior. The Last Exorcism Part II finds her taking steps to build life anew, beginning in a boarding house for troubled girls, where the deeply devout Nell is exposed to such heretofore corrupting influences as lipstick and rock music and YouTube and cotton candy.

Evil Dead

Major-studio horror doesn’t get much better — or bloodier!


Horror

Rod Lott
From the prologue of Evil Dead, it’s evident this is not your everyday, note-for-note, beat-for-beat horror remake. In fact, it joins that select group of remakes that stand on their own while remaining respectful of their source, i.e. The Fly, The Blob, The Thing (John Carpenter's, mind you) and Dawn of the Dead.

The Hangover Part III

Let's 'Hang' again.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Once The Hangover became a monster hit in the summer of '09, a sequel was inevitable. So was the backlash, which greeted The Hangover Part II upon its arrival two years later. Complained the multiplex populace, "It's too much like the first one!"

Narco Cultura

Crimes and rhymes collide in this disturbing and powerful documentary about the celebratory culture spawned by Mexico's drug war.


Documentary

Rod Lott

Richi Soto is a busy man. As a crime scene investigator in Juárez, Mexico — aka the murder capital of the world — how could he not be?
