Birdemic 2: The Resurrection

What the flock?!?


Thriller

Rod Lott
For those worried that Birdemic 2: The Resurrection doesn’t match the awfulness of the 2010 original, know this: The first five minutes are of its ostensible leading man walking. The first exchange of dialogue: “Hi!” “Hi.”

The Wicked

Will leave you not spellbound, but spellbored.


Horror

Rod Lott
When you put a little kid in danger in your first scene, as The Wicked does, I'm in. That’s a fairly bold move, and it signals that the film is going to — pardon my French — have some balls and do something different.

Mold!

Spread the word: a B movie that’s semi-infectious.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Ignore the grim, apocalyptic cover of this DVD, which depicts the flick’s vibe so inaccurately, it even drops the title’s exclamation point. Make no mistake: Mold! has mirth on its mind ... even if those brains have spilled onto the floor.

H.P. Lovecraft’s Cool Air

Ice it.


Horror

Rod Lott
H.P. Lovecraft’s Cool Air is really Albert Pyun’s Cool Air. The notorious director of the aborted Captain America and the should’ve-been-aborted Kathy Ireland vehicle known as Alien from L.A. is up to his usual inert tricks. It shows from the start, which forces viewers to read six title cards in two long minutes.

At Any Price

A gifted filmmaker takes a detour with a farmland melodrama.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Ramin Bahrani has directed three extraordinary, independently produced films about characters living on the margins on society. That trio — Man Push Cart (2005), Chop Shop (2007) and Goodbye Solo (2008) — rightly earned him scads of critical acclaim and excitement about his future projects.

Dexter: The Seventh Season

A cut below the previous.


Television series

Rod Lott
There's no way to discuss the seventh and penultimate season of Showtime's hit Dexter without acknowledging how the previous year ended. Therefore, if you haven't finished the sixth season, stop reading now. You've got work to do.

The Howling

Team Jacob?!? Try Team Dante.


Horror

Rod Lott
One of at least four werewolf films to be released in 1981, The Howling remains a distant second to John Landis' An American Werewolf in London, but only because Joe Dante wasn't able to enjoy the competition's deep coffers. Sacrilege alert: I find Dante's to be the better movie.

Identity Thief

Steals a few more moments than expected.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Hate not Identity Thief, as so many have for its ridiculous, unbelievable, utterly preposterous plot. Accept that it's a big-budget screwball comedy and you may find yourself — gasp! — enjoying it.
