A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (2010)

2 Stars
Year Released: 2010
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 95 minutes

It almost feels like a fan film, or, at best, a Sy-Fy Original Movie. Haley, talented as he is, just can’t nail the role. No one can, because it already belongs to Englund…

SEAN CHRISTENSEN’S “SHAVE”

5 Stars
Year Released: 2009
MPAA Rating: Unrated

ZONAD

3 Stars
Year Released: 2009
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 78 minutes

2010 TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL SELECTION! “Zonad” has a place if you’re a fan of sci-fi b-films and sneaking a few pints of black beer into a theater with you.

THE LOSERS

3 Stars
Year Released: 2010
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Running Time: 98 minutes

What is it that causes so many people who make movies based on comic books to take themselves so seriously? Is it a matter of overcompensating? Whatever the source of the phenomenon, I’m pleased to report it does not afflict this film…
