‘Devil’s Due’ is diabolically disappointing

This found footage flick only presents a cure for insomnia.

“Killing Them Softly” receives mixed reviews

From the outside ‘Killing Them Softly’ looks like any other gangster film, but director Andrew Dominik attempted to take a different approach.

Sinister burns Bughuul into audiences

Derrickson’s “Sinister” is an entertaining horror movie that dabs a little too often into horror movie clichés for safety as well as comic relief.

Few bright spots in blockbuster filled summer

Collegian staff writer Kevin Romani reviews the summer in movies, selecting his top 5 films from a season of otherwise lackluster productions

Lackluster sequels plague summer cinemas

In a summer of Hollywood duds, staff writer Kevin Romani picks the dullest, noting that the sequels to several popular films were probably left better unmade.

No holiday cheer, but “Everybody’s Fine” here

Kirk Jones and company definitely did something right when they made this season’s newest family film, “Everybody’s Fine.” The director, known for “Nanny McPhee,” adapted his new film from 1990’s Italian flick “Stanno Tutti Bene” by Giuseppe Tornatore. The biggest difference, disregarding the obvious language disparity, is the all-star cast Jones has put together.

‘Sorority Row’ offers stab at legitimacy for talentless Hollywood offspring

It starts with an accidental death, followed by threats, gory deaths and a disguised killer. Sound familiar? These traits can be attributed to countless horror films made in the last two decades. Yet Stewart Hendler’s “Sorority Row” brings a few new elements into the mix.

‘Jennifer’s Body’ hosts plenty of laughs, few horrors

Let’s get something straight: Diablo Cody is a comedy writer. Best known for her Oscar-winning script for “Juno,” its evident that Cody is sharp, witty and up on her culture.

“Basterds” An Inglorious Effort by Tarantino

Brad Pitt stars in Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, “Inglourious Basterds.” A well written screenplay holds together an otherwise poorly executed WWII action flick.
