Mimic: The Director's Cut

Take two!


Rod Lott
Guillermo del Toro is a giant talent, but he has an equally giant problem in getting too close to his films, to a point where he's unable to see any of their faults; thus, they often overstay their welcome. ("Hellboy II: The Golden Army" was among 2008's most tiresome movies, but length was hardly that one's only problem.)

It should be ‘Lost’ forever.


Rod Lott

Another Earth

This intriguing sci-fi drama goes slightly out of orbit.


Phil Bacharach
You’ve got to admire the DIY ethic of “Another Earth.” Raw and grainy, it is steadfastly committed to its own smarts and vision — even if it ultimately falls short of its ambitions.

Little Deaths

Buckle up. Things are about to get messy.


Rod Lott
The term "little death" serves as a euphemism for "orgasm," so it makes sense that the British horror anthology "Little Deaths" explores the inexorable link between sex and death.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

It’s chimps ahoy with the latest ‘Planet of the Apes’ adventure.


Rod Lott
Say what you will about Tim Burton’s widely despised 2001 remake of “Planet of the Apes,” but if it hadn't made serious bank, this prequel would not exist.

The Deadly Spawn: Millennium Edition

It’s ‘Deadly’ fun.


Rod Lott
From 1983, “Deadly Spawn” clearly is rooted in the style of the 1950s sci-fi monster movies whose posters bedeck one of the character’s walls, from Bert I. Gordon's "The Spider" to Jack Arnold’s “Monster on the Campus” — films in which severe deficiencies in budget are mitigated by ingenuity and charm.
