The Wicker Tree

You can find better 'Wicker' at Pier 1.


Horror

Rod Lott
After helming the 1973 British horror classic The Wicker Man, Robin Hardy didn't follow it up until 1986, and didn't make a third until now. For whatever reason — distract the public from the disaster of Nic Cage's bear-punching remake, perhaps? — he's gone back to the well with an overdue, arguably unnecessary sequel, The Wicker Tree.

The Darkest Hour

It’s not so bright.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Two American entrepreneurs (Speed Racer's Emile Hirsch and The Social Network's Max Minghella) travel to Moscow in the hopes of turning their Globe Trot social network into a $10 million company with one meeting. Instead, they're ripped off by a Russian colleague and, to make matters worse, are at ground zero of an alien invasion. At least they get to meet some babes first.

The Case of the Black Parrot

Polly wanna murder mystery?


Thriller

Rod Lott
Warner Archive's packaging pegs 1941's The Case of the Black Parrot as a “classic crime thriller,” but for such a lofty status, I've never heard it uttered in the same breath as, say, The Bat or And Then There Were None. In fact, I'd never heard of it, period. No matter; the fix was easy.

The Divide

Fails to conquer.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Xavier Gens' The Divide begins with a bang — a nuclear incident, to be precise — but goes out with a whimper. For a film with one of the strongest trailers in recent memory, it disappoints just as heavily. Divide, it will.

Miss Bala

As a drama, this Mexican entree is mild.


Drama

Rod Lott

Conceptually, Miss Bala shares much in common with 2004's Maria Full of Grace. In that film, a young Colombian girl became a drug mule in order to save her family. Here, a young Mexican woman becomes a criminal accessory in order to save her friend.
