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.

RED 2

Better dead than ‘RED.’


Action

Zach Hale
Nobody in their right mind would mistake 2010's RED for high art. The film was a harmless, mildly entertaining caricature of a summer blockbuster that provided a fair amount of laughs and a hefty amount of explosions. Any notion of plot played second fiddle to graphic absurdity, but it at least bumbled about with a little bit of charm and charisma.

Oblivion

Cruise into a dystopian future.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Oblivion marks the second Tom Cruise vehicle in a row — Jack Reacher being the first — to underperform at the box office and underwhelm critics, yet turns out to be not bad. Not bad at all! (Scientology backlash? Signs point to “yes.”)

Disorderlies

Filmed in 3-D, only the ‘D’ stands for ‘diabetes.’


Comedy

Louis Fowler
As someone who is doing his damnedest to lose more than three decades of weight gain, it has taken years of self-inflicted embarrassment to fully realize that “all you can eat” isn't a challenge, but a curse.
