Latest Reviews

MOVIES

Under the Eiffel Tower

Uneven midlife-crisis dramedy has drinking, language.

Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media

Run the Race

Touchdown for faith-based fans; underage drinking.

Tara McNamara, Common Sense Media

Hummus! The Movie

Told with humor and compassion, but a bit too niche to win widespread appeal. What the documentary does very well is spotlight deserving, hard-working chefs who don't ordinarily get much attention.

Daniel Eagan, Film Legacy

DVD/STREAMING

Pokémon 4Ever

There's no point to prolonging the inevitable, except to pad the movie out to its barely feature-length run time.

Tasha Robinson, AV Club

Suburbia

An essential entry in early-'80s independent American cinema, Suburbia receives a radical Blu-ray upgrade from Shout! Factory, along with a pair of commentaries worth hearing in full.

Clayton Dillard, Slant Magazine

10 Things I Hate About You

Based to a great degree on William Shakespeare's much-filmed Taming of the Shrew, 10 Things I Hate About You is without question the teen movie to watch with your best girl or yarn carrying grandma.
