Fill the Void

Love and marriage don’t always go together like a horse and carriage, as this Hebrew-language drama shows.


Drama

Aimee Williams
From the first scene, it’s clear Fill the Void is a rare, if not voyeuristic look into the concealed lives of a seemingly impermeable religious community.

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.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

Rather than retire, the Jackass franchise flirts with fiction — if not sexually harasses it — in the semi-scripted, wholly hilarious Bad Grandpa.


Comedy

Rod Lott

Riotous as they are, the Jackass movies have not been immune to the law of diminishing returns — in terms of laughs, not box office. That the fourth feature, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, is the funniest since the first, 2002's Jackass: The Movie, is something of an unexpected achievement.

A Hijacking

Again with the pirates?


Thriller

Rod Lott
As Tom Hanks sails toward the award season aboard Captain Phillips, do not overlook Denmark's A Hijacking, another (but different) true-life tale of Somali pirates and an unfortunate ship held hostage. The 2012 Danish film has been imported by Magnolia Pictures to Blu-ray.

Made for TV

Gangster Eliot Ness hits the small screen by route of an Oklahoma author.


Features

Malena Lott
If the name Eliot Ness doesn’t ring a bell, he’s the lawman played by Kevin Costner in The Untouchables who made a name for himself bringing down gangster Al Capone.
