Review by Yasin Lago

Horns
Directed by Alexandre Aja
Written by Keith Bunin, Adapted from the novel by Joe Hill

Lions Gate
Rated R | 123 Minutes
Release Date: Oct 31, 2014 (Limited)

The title of the latest project by Alexandre Aja, Horns, would have you focus on a couple of appendages growing out of a young man’s head. As it turns out, that is the least of his problems. His physical setback is nothing compared to the mental and emotional toll he’ll take before his world (and reality) completely unravels. As circumstances change, our lead goes from being in a dark place to a literal and figurative descent into Hell.

When we come upon Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe), life for him has begun to take a very intense turn. His beloved (by everyone) and loved girlfriend and soul mate, played as an ethereal forest nymph-next-door by Juno Temple, has been brutally murdered. Ig is implicated in this and is quickly judged by the entire community as the culprit (with no help from waitress/eyewitness Heather Graham). Now town pariah, he begins to settle into this half self-imposed exiled Limbo for lowlifes when”¦things”¦change.

‘The Hangover Part III’ Trailer: It All Ends With The Same Jokes
  |  @   |  

Probably the most common gripe people had with The Hangover Part II was that it was way to similar too The Hangover. Director Todd Phillips promised he would redeem himself in the third and final entry of the trilogy by making The Hangover Part III the darkest film of the three by killing off one of its vital characters.

Looking at the teaser trailer for The Hangover Part III, there are a lot of characters from the previous films that come back to reprise their respective roles, but one character is notably absent from it. Find out who after the jump.

Blu-ray Review: Lost In Space
  |  

Lost In Space
Blu-ray | DVD
Directed by Stephen Hopkins
Starring William Hurt, Mimi Rogers, Heather Graham, Lacey Chabert, Gary Oldman, Matt LeBlanc
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment
Release Date: September 7, 2010

Remember how good the J.J. Abrams reboot of Star Trek was? Remember how it took a 1960’s sci-fi show that lasted three seasons and updated it for a modern audience in a way that was both faithful to the original and exciting for newcomers? Good, because Lost In Space is here as a reminder of how easy it is to get all those things wrong.

As most box office buffs know, the movie is notable for being the film that finally ended Titanic‘s number one reign at the box office. That might be the best thing I can say about this movie.

Laughable dialog (not in a good way), a meandering plot involving time travel, a bloated running time, and dated CGI really sink what is essentially an interesting premise. It’s the Swiss Family Robinson but in space. That idea intrigues me, but they really squandered what could have been a fun sci-fi flick.
