Drag Me to Hell

Oh no, not another PG-13 horror film! "But wait," you say. "It's by Sam Raimi." Perhaps, then, it shouldn't be routinely dismissed as just another tale of demons and ghosts that has been emasculated with the goal of appealing to pimple-faced teen...

Evil Dead II, The

What do you get when you cross George Romero with The Three Stooges by way of the director of A Simple Plan and The Gift? Something offbeat, to be sure. Something grotesque, without a doubt. Something... groovy. Evil Dead II can be seen as ...

Evil Dead, The

Long before Scream came along to simultaneously parody the horror genre while participating in it, there was Sam Raimi's Evil Dead trilogy (the third entry into the series, Army of Darkness, was released in 1993). Equal parts suspense, camp, comed...

For Love of the Game

For Love of the Game, Kevin Costner's third baseball related movie, is appropriately named. Unlike the romantic comedy Bull Durham and the allegorical Field of Dreams, For Love of the Game requires a basic understanding of and affinity for basebal...

Gift, The

The Gift is an example of how superior craftsmanship can transform a ho-hum genre entry into a sporadically gripping thriller. On the surface, there's nothing special about this movie - it's a run-of-the-mill supernatural murder mystery with all o...

Simple Plan, A

Beware things that are described as "simple." While this is not the central message of A Simple Plan, it's certainly a byproduct. From the real world, we all know that things which are supposed to be simple - a basic plumbing job, minor car repai...

Spider-Man

Recent times have been good to Marvel comics, and the long-anticipated arrival of Spider-Man represents the latest step up the ladder. Long the underdog in the motion picture arena, Marvel has at last been able to catch up to rival DC comics by pl...

Spider-Man 2

Spider-Man 2 has all the elements of a good, but not great, superhero motion picture. While lacking the tragic grandeur that made last year's Hulk such a unique experience, Spider-Man 2 fills the void with solid character development, self-referen...
