Review: WELCOME TO THE PUNCH (2013)

WELCOME TO THE PUNCH is all about flashy style with exciting action scenes, but the plot is sketchy and the characters are mostly paper thin.

Review: ELYSIUM (2013)

Not as great as DISTRICT 9, but ELYSIUM remains an entertaining, if shallow mix of sociopolitical commentary and imaginative sci-fi genre.

Review: THE FROZEN GROUND (2013)

If I maintain my serious face long enough, I might win another Oscar...
Nicolas Cage's and John Cusack's performances are commendable, while the police procedural drama is fairly intense, if overly sluggish.

Review: ADORE (2013)

I hate to break this to you but your teenage son's weenie is smaller than my hubby.
Despite provocative subject matter and appealing cast, ADORE is surprisingly silly in its execution that hard to take it seriously.
 

Review: UNBEATABLE 激战 (2013)

UNBEATABLE is overlong and full of clichés, but the story is heartfelt enough while Nick Cheung and Crystal Lee deliver their career-best performances.

Review: KILLING SEASON (2013)

Now, old man... How would you like me to cook you? Fried? Stew? Or maybe grill?
KILLING SEASON is disappointingly preachy and silly violent drama, while Robert De Niro and John Travolta are particularly wasted in their roles.

Review: THE CONJURING (2013)

 Oh, my... I should have put my makeup on.
THE CONJURING is scary as hell, and certainly ranks as one of the best horror movies in recent memory.
