All of this week's new movie reviews

Animus (2013)

Can you spell formulaic? A-N-I-M-U-S, that's how you spell it! Read more>

Kaijûtô no kessen: Gojira no musuko (1967)

What were they thinking? Let's introduce a baby Godzilla and hopefully it will appeal to young kids? In any case, this movie works out as a rather silly (yes, even more so than usual) and campy one. Read more>

Small Time (2014)

This is not a bad movie but it's not a great one either. I mean, it's by no means a must-see but when you do decide to watch you most likely won't regret it. It's a pleasant to watch little movie, that keeps you entertained for 90 minutes but it's not a movie that will live on in your memory for a very long time. Read more>

Kid Cannabis (2014)

This movie looks and sounds like a typical lame stoner comedy, starring a bunch of teens but as it turns out, the movie actually is a surprisingly straight one. Can't really say that this approach works out very well for the movie as well though. Read more>

Draft Day (2014)

Funny thing about some movies is that it's very obvious that there is no way they would have been made if it weren't for the involvement of some well known and big names, both in front and behind the cameras. The idea and appeal behind the movie really isn't anything solid enough to justify why it was made in the first place. Read more>

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

Well, it's superhero entertainment. And not just that, it's some $200.000.000 superhero entertainment, so how can things be bad? And indeed, this also really isn't a bad movie, it's just lacking some focus at parts as well as a truly original and solid story to make this movie stand out from any other modern day genre attempt. That doesn't make this one different from most other $200.000.000 movies though. These type of movies always tend to play things safe and keep things as generic as possible, since there is too much money at stake. You can still complain about this of course but it's not always something that turns these movies into absolutely terrible ones as well. Read more>

Kaijû sôshingeki (1968)

It's normal that sequels always try to top its predecessor, usually by being bigger and more spectacular in terms of its scope and action but this movie takes the cake! Read more>

Proxy (2013)

This feels like a movie that Brian De Palma dropped out of at the very last moment and got picked up by another and lesser known director, who had less money to spend and no big name actors to work with. Read more>
