NEVER FOREVER (DVD)

4.5 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 102 minutes

Don’t be fooled by the subject matter and think that this is some dark romantic drama. This is actually a film that fits squarely in the disaster genre of movies…

COIN-OP. TV VOL. 1 (DVD)

While the extras are slim and basically pointless, it’s the episodes that will attract most of your attention and make you salivate at the thought of volume two…

THE OTHER SIDE

4 Stars
Year Released: 2006
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 95 minutes

I’m sure I’m not the only viewer who thought of this movie as “Ghost” for guys. It has similar themes but they are handled in such a cool way that you can’t help but appreciate what the filmmakers have done here…

FEAR HOUSE (DVD)

2.5 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 86 minutes

The film is fairly imaginative in its twists. Unfortunately, it lacks scares and emotion, both of which are essential to a haunted house film…

DOWNHILL

DOWNHILL
3.5 Stars
Year Released: 2006
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 82 minutes

Nobody is ever going to call “Downhill” a classic or even a great film, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say it is a worthy dark comedy with moments of pure genius…

ACROSS THE LINE

ACROSS THE LINE
2 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 15 minutes

When it comes to movies, it’s a crime to be instantly forgettable. “Across the Line” is guilty of that here, and there isn’t a lawyer in the world good enough to get that charge dismissed…

REVEREND BEAT-MAN: SURREAL FOLK BLUES GOSPEL TRASH VOL. 3 (DVD)

4.5 Stars

THE WORLD OF THE END

1 Stars
Year Released: 2006
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 19 minutes

“The World of the End” could have been an interesting character study. Instead, it’s just a film about a young lady named Madison…

HEAVY METAL IN BAGHDAD (DVD)

4.5 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated

If you see a better documentary this year, I’d be interested to know about it, as this one will be hard to match…

TEENAPE GOES TO CAMP (DVD)

3.5 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 61 minutes

To the casual observer, they’ll think this is just an amateurish effort by a guy who can’t do any better. The more astute viewer, however, will see that this is carefully constructed chaos…

BEYOND DESPAIR

BEYOND DESPAIR
1 Stars
Year Released: 2006

If I could give a film a star rating based on its intentions, this film would rate much higher…

THE ARK, THE SHROUD AND MARY (DVD)

0 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated

I’m not offended by the subject matter (I couldn’t care less, actually), but I am offended by things that are boring…

DROP BOX (DVD)

3 Stars
Year Released: 2006
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 74 minutes

“Drop Box” didn’t sit well with me at first. I found the two main characters too brutal to enjoy, but after some contemplation I realized it works for the film…
