Americano

Salma Hayek stripping isn't even the film's best element.


Drama

Rod Lott
Mathieu Demy's Americano opens with a little death, followed immediately by a big one, as Frenchmen Martin (Demy) receives one of those middle-of-the-night phone calls that deliver the worst of bad news: His mother has died.

Halloween II / Halloween III: Season of the Witch / Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers / Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers

Happy Halloween! Times four!


Horror

Rod Lott
Anyone who says the 1978 original is the only good movie in the Halloween franchise is kidding himself. While none of the succeeding chapters may match the power, there's plenty of fun to be had beyond that one night he came home.

Your Sister's Sister

Three’s a crowd in one fine film.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
In an age of cinema jammed with reboots, remakes and raunch, it's a welcome revelation to come across the heartfelt Your Sister's Sister on Blu-ray and DVD, in which low-budget indie meets comedy of manners.

Safety Not Guaranteed

But a ‘Safe’ bet.


Comedy

Rod Lott
If only Oklahoma Gazette classified ads were this intriguing: "Wanted: Somebody to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. You'll get paid after we get back. Must bring your own weapons. I have only done this once before. Safety not guaranteed."

The Campaign

Enough laughs to make your chad hang.


Comedy

Rod Lott
In any other year but an election year, I’d like to think The Campaign would have been a bigger hit. It's certainly funny; it's also certainly too close to the truth: American politics is a game of money.

House of Dark Shadows / Night of Dark Shadows

Double up with earlier big-screen 'Shadows.'


Horror

Rod Lott
Those who liked Tim Burton's misunderstood Dark Shadows movie may be curious about exploring the long-running TV soap opera on which it was based. I understand, but instead would point them first in the direction of the 1970 and 1971 feature films, House of Dark Shadows and Night of Dark Shadows.

[REC] 3: Genesis

’Til death do us part.


Horror

Rod Lott
After four previous films (when you factor in the American Quarantine versions), is there life left in Spain's zombie found-footage franchise? [REC] 3: Genesis responds with a festive "¡Si!"

Nitro Circus: The Movie

Wow! Ouch!


Documentary

Rod Lott
Granted only a limited theatrical release this summer, Nitro Circus: The Movie is like Jackass with more athleticism, more engineering know-how, more maturity, more corporate sponsors, and much less testicular trauma.

The Ghostmaker

Give it a ‘Ghost’ of a chance.


Horror

Rod Lott
While cleaning a widow’s basement, college student Kyle (Aaron Dean Eisenberg) finds a dusty coffin. Smelling a big eBay sale, he takes it home to clean it up and finds that’s it no ordinary box for bones, but a padded that conceals an intricate system of gears and a built-in music box, not to mention a key dated 1452.
