The Philadelphia Experiment

‘Experiment’ failed.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
There's a theory about remakes that perhaps Hollywood should stop remaking good movies and instead remake the bad ones, so that they may be improved. The problem with that theory is one runs the risk of the remake being bad, too. Case in point: The Philadelphia Experiment.

Crimewave

We find it guilty ... of being underseen!


Comedy

Rod Lott
I’m the weird guy who saw Sam Raimi’s Crimewave before I saw Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead. Four or five times.

Hands of a Stranger

Semi-gripping thriller.


Thriller

Rod Lott
After ruining his golden phalanges in an auto accident, concert pianist Vernon Paris (James Noah, Black Sheep) gets replacement mitts "donated" by a guy fatally shot thrice on the studio backlot street. The renegade medical procedure is dangerous, experimental and performed by a surgeon (Paul Lukather, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter) who assures us, "I've transplanted other hands, yes."

I eagerly await Brian De Palma's comeback. A finely composed disappointment, Passion is not it.

12 Years a Slave

Steve McQueen's emotionally jarring biopic depicts slavery in a way that few, if any, have ever dared.


Drama

Zach Hale
Slavery was a dark and shameful time in American history — unequivocally the darkest. Yet while the era has been portrayed on the silver screen in countless films, director Steve McQueen (ShameHunger) presents it with unprecedented realism in 12 Years a Slave — one of the most profoundly gut-wrenching, visceral works of 21st-century cinema you're bound to encounter.
