Wes Craven's New Nightmare


Directed by: Wes Craven
Written by: Wes Craven
Cast: Heather Langenkamp, Robert Englund, Miko Hughes, Wes Craven
Studio: New Line
Genre: Horror
Official Site:
Plot: Freddy Krueger targets actress Heather Lagenkamp in the real world.


This is definitely one of the most interesting horror sequels, maybe ever. In a meta take on the franchise, an ancient dream demon takes on the form of Freddy Krueger and targets Heather Lagenkamp, the actress who played Nancy in the original movie.

Robert Englund puts the punchlines aside to make Freddy scary again. He also appears as himself as a friend to Heather. Heather gives the best performance of any of the non-Freddy characters in the whole series. With Wes back in the director's chair, there is much more emphasis on atmosphere and real scares. The kill count is actually quite low and people playing themselves are lifeless in a good way, increasing the amount of tension and creepiness.

Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare


Directed by: Rachel Talalay
Written by: Michael De Luca
Cast: Robert Englund, Lisa Zane, Shon Greenblatt, Lezlie Deane
Studio: New Line
Genre: Horror
Official Site:
Plot: Freddy targets another group of disturbed kids looking for the child he fathered when he was alive.


This is the Nightmare sequel that really just kind of goes for it. I mean, someone might act like they gave up, but I think the series already lost itself a little.

Englund was allowed to go full Jim Carey as Freddy with the most punchlines yet and plenty of goofy kill scenes. The atmosphere is overly comedic too. The world is starting to reflect dream logic as well with an over the top Roseanne Barr freaking out about finally having children back in Springwood.

This is probably the most charismatic group of teenagers since the first movie and they embrace their task of being the new dream warriors. It also adds a lot more to the mythology of Freddy showing his death n the fire and adding the dream demons that grant him his abilities.

The most interesting element was definitely watching Englund free of the make-up play a pre-fire Freddy killing his wife and threatening his child. It is definitely the scariest Freddy has been since the first movie.

Yes, this movie seems to finally just commit to being more humorous, but I like tht they really went for it.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child


Directed by: Stephen Hopkins
Written by: Leslie Bohem
Cast: Robert Englund, Lisa Wilcox, Kelly Jo Minter, Danny Hassel
Studio: New Line
Genre: Horror
Official Site:
Plot: Alice is once again targetted by Freddy Krueger when she starts sharing dreams with her unborn child.


This Nightmare on Elm Street reminds me of Halloween 6. In fact Nightmare 3-5 remind me a lot of Halloween 4-6. There is a clear arc that helps build up the mythology of the slasher. They are kind of entertaining but also kind of a mess that over complicate the series.

They have been building up the backstory of Freddy through these last 3 movies, but we finally get to see Freddy's nun mother get attacked by the horde of criminally insane. A really disturbing almost Gilliam like scene.

The rest is kind of a convoluted mess that is a little to heavy handed with the mythology angle. The dream logic is more kooky krazy than krazy skary with a fairly ridiculous looking animatronic baby Freddy.

It was cool to see Lisa Wilcox back though.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master


Directed by: Renny Harlin
Written by: Brian Helgeland, Jim Wheat, Ken Wheat
Cast: Tuesday Knight, Ken Sagoes, Rodney Eastman, Lisa Wilcox
Studio: New Line
Genre: Horror
Official Site:
Plot: The surviving Dream Warriors are terrorized once again by Freddy Krueger.


I find it interesting that the survivor of one film starts becoming the victims of the next. First, Nancy in Dream Warriors, and now the surviving Dream Warriors get taken out pretty early on in Dream Master.

The Dream Master is of course Freddy because Robert Englund is truly awesome in the role. Once he's done with the Dream Warriros, he moves on to the Dream Warriors' friends, particularly Alice Johnson.

Alice Johnson, played by Lisa Wilcox, is probably the best heir to Nancy's final girl throne in the whole series. She is a charming wallflower who becomes more and more powerful and confident as she absorbs the powers of the Dream Warriors and even her friends. She also carries around a lot of guilt since it is her fault for siccing Freddy on her friends. Her new dream powers got his attention. She is also a constant daydreamer and I'm kind of surprised they never experimented with Freddy appearing in them.

Unfortunately, none of her friends are as good as her. Her karate chopping brother and her '80s big haired friend are pretty annoying. The effects kind of bounce around too. For instance, the karate chopping brother is basically killed by an invisible martial artist in a pretty lame scene, while the big haired girl turns into a cockroach which looked way better than I thought it could.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors


Directed by: Chuck Russell
Written by: Wes Craven, Bruce Wagner
Cast: Heather Langenkamp, Craig Wasson, Patricia Arquette, Robert Englund
Studio: New Line
Genre: Horror
Official Site:
Plot: Nancy helps a group of disturbed kids fight off Freddy Krueger


Nancy is back after missing the crappy sequel. Heather is just as good as she was in the first, now with more confidence having already won once.

After beating Freddy, she has taken an interest in helping teens with emotional and mental distress. Anger management issues. Drug addictions Sleep disorders. The kids are definitely more clumsy than the original group, but thankfully they are just as likable.

It treats the idea of dream powers as something slightly more common. This group of kids also have abilities that make Freddy look less like a fluke of supernature. By sending more time in the dream world, Englund is able to play more as Freddy with a perfect balance between funny and scary. Some of the dream world stunts borders on too over the top to take serious, but Englund's delivery does a good job of propping up some of the weaker scenes.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge


Directed by: Jack Sholder
Written by: David Chaskin
Cast: Mark Patton, Kim Myers, Robert Rusler, Clu Gulager
Studio: New Line
Genre: Horror
Official Site:
Plot: The new resident of Nancy's house is haunted by Freddy


There is a pretty big drop off between the first one and this sequel. There is just a lot of weird '80s Top Gun esque scenes of random dancing, super '80s high school pool parties, and over-the-top high school cliches. According to the Elm Street documentary, apparently there was a lot of gay subtext that was apparently accidentally made into just text by those weird 80s cliches.

It certainly doesn't help matters that Mark Patton might be the worst actor of the entire series and Englund's role seems deeply diminished to basically running around a pool party ruining the whole dream demon thing.

It does have some pretty amazing practical effects though. Maybe the best of the whole series.

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)


Directed by: Wes Craven
Written by: Wes Craven
Cast: John Saxon, Ronee Blakley, Heather Langenkamp, Amanda Wyss
Studio: New Line
Genre: Horror
Official Site:
Plot: A dream demon terrorizes local teenagers


A Nightmare on Elm Street is a masterpiece of a horror movie.

It stars the usual group of teenagers, the girl next door, the hot chick, the tough guy, and the....other guy (played by Johnny Depp). They get through their dialog pretty clumsily but they figure out how to be likable, especially Heather Langenkamp as final girl Nancy.

They realize that they are having nightmares about the same guy: a horribly disfigured man in a red and green sweater with a makeshift claw on his hand. This is of course, Freddy Krueger, one of the most popular slashers in horror fiction thanks to character actor Robert Englund. IN this particular go around Englund plays him with an acerbic wit taking way too much damn pleasure in torturing these kids before he finally kills them.

Although many slashers tend to rest on jump-scares, including future Nightmare installments, this Nightmare has plenty of atmosphere. Thanks to Krueger enjoying playing with his victims means that Nancy is faced with a number of dream logic visions including her best friend in a bodybag calling for help.

I always thought the ending got a little weird when it turns into a weird version of Home Alone though.

The Drop


Directed by: Michael Roskam
Written by: Dennis Lehane
Cast: Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, James Gandolfini, Matthias Schoenaerts, John Ortiz
Studio: Fox Searchlight
Genre: Crime, Drama
Official Site:
Plot: A local bartender finds himself at odds with local criminals.


I feel like I could be biased towards this movie because this is exactly the kind of gangster movies I like. The guys in the pinstripes constantly talking about loyalty with an almost supernatural reach into each and every criminal enterprise don’t interest me. Or at least, I like it when those guys fall down, which I guess is the point. I am more into the local tough guys kind of movies. I highly recommend seeing Monument Ave (sometimes called Snitch) starring Denis Leary, which is a kindred spirit to this movie...[more]...

Gone Girl

Written by:
Cast: Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Missi Pyle, Kim Dickens, Tyler Perry, Patrick Fugit, Casey Wilson
Studio: 20th Century Fox
Genre: Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: A man becomes a suspect in his wife’s disappearance


Very early in the movie, when Ben Affleck’s Nick Dunne gives some background information to the lead investigator, Kim Dickens’ Rhonda Boney, he lets her know he owns a local bar, called The Bar. Boney smiles, “I like it. It’s very meta.” That is the key to David Fincher’s latest murder mystery cryptogram that is Gone Girl. That said, this movie is incredibly hard to review, unless you have read the book. There are barely any hints in the trailer for the true direction of the movie. I would really hate to be the one to ruin it for everyone, so I am going to give it a try (reviewing, that is). Calling the meta line the key is about as spoilery as I am willing to go...[more]...

Official Site:
Plot: A man at a crossroads tries to keep his life in order over the phone


Locke is a construction worker who has to make a big decision. From his car, he starts making calls trying to make it possible for him to make the hard decision without letting his life crumble around him.

What everyone is talking about is Tom Hardy's performance as the lead character, who takes on a politician's style of speaking while emoting some pretty impressive depths of character. Everyone else is just a disembodied voice on the phone. There's part of me that thinks it would be better to see the people on the phone and allow Locke to be the disembodied voice, add some more mystery to what it is he is doing.

Its not long when we realize what it is Locke is doing, and that part is a big disappointing. I don't find the stakes to be very high, and the solution should be so much easier if Locke had just planned ahead. It all just seems very mundane not worth letting so many things go to pot. That can't take away from what Tom Hardy does though.

This is an interesting project for Tom Cruise. It is late into Tom's career, and it seems weird to see Tom Cruise take a role that is not explicitly a hero. A character that still needs to learn to be a hero. Its not a detriment to the movie, I just find it interesting...[more]...

Under the skin


Directed by: Jonathan Glazer
Written by: Walter Campbell
Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Paul Brannigan
Studio: Film4
Genre: Horror, Science-Fiction, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: An inhuman seductress preys on men.


An effectively spacey and eclectic thriller from Jonathan Glazer casts Scarlet Johansson in probably her most interesting role yet.

She plays a succubus of sorts called an alien by almost everyone who writes about the movie even though it is never explicitly said. She is most certainly not human. Her thousand mile stare clashes with her natural beauty and makes the moments where she clicks on the fake charm all the more scary and predatory. I thought it was a pretty damn impressive performance.

The moments where the men are consumed are some of the most interesting imagery put to film his year at the very least. They just get absorbed into the darkness.

ScarJo is not just a predator. She is also an observer. In one moment, she watches a very tragic event happen on a beach. It is a combination of sadness, love, impulse, contradiction, and foolihardiness. The best of intentions that leave no one in a better place. Whether unwillingly or unknowingly, she was absorbing these human traits and preying on men became harder to do. Watching her struggle with that is pretty compelling mixed with some mind-fucking visuals.

Life of Crime


Directed by: Daniel Schechter

Studio: Lionsgate
Genre: Comedy, Crime
Official Site:
Plot: Two criminals kidnap a woman of a wealthy man uninterested in paying her ransom


Based on the novel The Switch by Elmore Leonard, it follows some would-be criminal masterminds that the movie going public has already been made familiar of. John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def) play Louis Gara and Ordell Robbie respectively. These are the same characters played by Robert De Niro and Samuel L. Jackson in Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown, based on Leonard’s Rum Punch. The two movies are not really related, they are simply adapted from similar source material, but you can’t help but look at this as a prequel of sorts...[more]...

Plot: Estranged twins reconnect after a suicide attempt.


The Skeleton Twins is not the most original or inspired indie dramedy. In fact, it sort of reads like a checklist of that genre’s tropes. Maggie (played by Kristen Wiig) is self-sabotaging her own marriage cheating on her husband and secretly taking birth control while her husband thinks they are trying to have a baby. She is staring at a pile of pills in her hand ready to take her own life when she is interrupted by a phone call that her gay, failed-actor brother , Milo (played by Bill Hader), who is still pining for his high school English teacher, has already tried to kill himself. Maggie asks Milo to move in with her and thus begins their little journey walking a fine line between enabling and helping...[more]...

Maybe, just maybe, you are all zombied out. I know. I get it. There’s a lot to take in right now. It’s low hanging fruit to just do a simple cheapie flick about zombies and get a lot of attention thanks simply to the popularity of the subgenre. That doesn’t mean though that all the good ideas have been picked from this particular genre garden. I think Shaun of the Dead and Fido proved that. Certainly, the popularity of “The Walking Dead” tv series ended up much higher than people expected. With that in mind, Life After Beth is definitely worth checking out...[more]...

About Alex


Directed by: Jesse Zwick
Written by: Jesse Zwick
Cast: Aubrey Plaza, Maggie Grace, Jane Levy, Max Greenfield, Max Minghella
Studio: The Bedford Falls Company, Footprint Features
Official Site:
Plot: A group of friends get together after one of them tries to commit suicide.


Made from a cast of actors I like: Aubrey Plaza, Jane Levy, Max Greenfield, and Jason Ritter, I decided to check out a movie that was incredibly uninspired.

It is essentially a millenial take on The Big Chill. It is overwritten, needlessly dour, and full of characters that are obnoxiously self-centered. Most of their complaints about life are about selling out and over reliance on technology and social networking with some lazy relationship drama thrown in for good measure. Or at least intended for good measure.

Aubrey Plaza carries much of the cast with her character being emotionally available while having a reputation of not being that way. Jason Ritter carries much of the ironic comedy reminding people not to take his attempt too seriously with newcomer Nate Parker being the biggest revelation of the movie, giving a solid performance as the only one with his head on straight. His biggest complaint was writer's block which he never passed off on other people.

Unfortunately, Max Greenfield symbolized every negative criticism of his generation which no character arc. He neither got better or worse. Jane Levy played the token youngster who's stoned behavior would be a better fit for an anti-drug campaign than reality.

Sorry you didn't like it much, but I definitely have to check this one out. Like you I dig that cast, and the subject matter hits a little home(No, I was one who attempted suicide.).

God's Pocket


Directed by: John Slattery
Written by: Alex Metcalf
Cast: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christina Hendricks, Eddie Marsan, Jack O'Connell , Caleb Jones, John Turturro
Studio: IFC Films
Genre: Drama
Official Site:
Plot: A stepfather is forced to do his own investigation to the death of his stepson.


Taking place in the fictional working class neighborhood, God's Pocket, based on a novel of the same name, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, in his first movie since his untimely death, plays a grieving stepfather to a lunatic construction worker killed for pissing off the wrong person who is forced to look into how he died by the boy's mother/Hoffman's wife completely blind to how big of an asshole her son really is.

In true working class neighborhood cliche, the whole neighborhood offers their condolences. "He was a good kid, everyone knew it" they lied. And when they weren't memorializing assholes, they give extra grief to Hoffman's character for not having grown up there. He's not "from there" so he doesn't get to relish in the seedy charm of it. Neither does the journalist played by Richard Jenkins, based on the author of the novel. He says he has a great deal of respect for people like them, but he always ends up sounding insulting.

It plays with these cliches and tries to insert a biting wit to seem subversive like Tarantino, but at this point in the timeline of cinema, it just seems like another cliche. Hoffman and John Turturro gave some cool performances and carries a pace that is easy to watch regardless, but the film is overall unmemorable.

I liked the fact how he included social media in the movie.
I liked as you said it how cool begin a foodie can be, and how much passion for the kitchen he has.
But ONLY in Hollywood you have Sofia Vergara as your ex-wife who is so THAT nice and you are banging Scarlet Johanson who push you to go and follow your dreams and passion, and you actually do.
PLUS! you get the help of your ex-ex who is Iron Man.
