  Movie Review: Return to Rwanda-Rwanda landPDF files may take a moment to load

Bodies piled upon each other are left to rot in the sun like overripe vegetables. Dead women, children and men--most of them dispatched with hacking blows from a machete or a gunshot to the head--litter city streets and the countryside. The dead, too numerous to bury individually, must be burnt or shoveled into mass graves.

  Movie Review: Assault on precinct cinemaPDF files may take a moment to load

Ignore the lame rhyme at the end of Assault on Precinct 13: "Wow, what an ending!" It's an ill fitting description for Jean-François Richet's film, only the beginning of which has anything going for it.

  Movie Review: The Hebrew Hammer ain't no schmuckPDF files may take a moment to load

"Shabbat Shalom, motherfuckers," says the Hebrew Hammer, pulling dual shotguns on a room of Neo-Nazis. It would be hard to call this scene anything but badass. It's wonderful to see an artist pull off something like this, creating quirky characters despite a low budget.

  Movie Review: Christmas with the Kranks mildly not crank inducingPDF files may take a moment to load

Christmas is fantastic for most people, excited by the lights, family, glitzed up tree and crowded malls. Even the more overly commercial aspects can be enough to tip us into a holiday cheer tizzy. Unfortunately, the early holiday movie, Christmas with the Kranks, proves to be not as nearly exciting. Although a heartfelt tale of warmth, love and overall Christmas cheer, don't expect to be crying be the end of the movie. However, expect to see Jamie Lee Curtis in a bikini.

  Movie Review: Sponge tasted better on televisionPDF files may take a moment to load

All your Spongebob paraphernalia is laid out on the bed like it's a drug bust: the taped episodes, Patrick Star cuddle pillow, Bikini Bottom alarm clock, Spongebob Squarepants pajamas, the rug you spent hours hooking those tiny bits of wool into so that gap toothed grin would welcome you every morning. You are a self-admitted addict and on Nov. 19, you have reached your Graceland. However, a warning should be issued to people like you-The Spongebob movie is not The Spongebob TV show.

  Movie Interview: The unbearable lightness of SpongebobPDF files may take a moment to load

If we've learned anything from cartoon characters, it's that you can't be stubborn and you can't be static if you want to succeed. Countless movies have an immature child take on mature traits to save the day, or a stuffy adult embracing their inner child so he or she understands how things must work out, as they always do in the end. This yin-yang balance of child and adult makes a person more whole, more versatile and it's what has made a sponge into an absorbent, yellow, porous, giggling epidemic.

  Movie Review: The Incredibles truly... uh... incrediblePDF files may take a moment to load

Deep within the Himalayas, movies like Catwoman, Spawn, and The Punisher, gather in a cave far from justice to form THE SHITTY SUPERHERO MOVIE LEAGUE... OF EVIL! For years they ravaged the hearts and minds of steadfast comic book nerds with their taint, challenged only by competent film renditions like Spider-Man and X-Men. Until now!

  Movie Review: Saw twists and twists and twists...PDF files may take a moment to load

Forget about what could have or should have been, missed opportunities and unfulfilled promise, you've got to hand it to director James Wan for having the confidence to make a debut like Saw. It's a gritty, dark, David Fincher-esque thriller not afraid of the gore or cranking up the tension. But when headstrong confidence meets inexperience the results are often overindulgent, and Saw is no exception.

  Movie Interview: James Wan shoots Saw on pure gutsPDF files may take a moment to load

On the phone from his Seattle hotel room, director James Wan sounds abnormally chipper. It's baffling, not only is it 9:30 in the morning where he is, but he's already done a number of interviews. Even more so, after seeing the gruesome crimes presented in Saw, Wan's directorial debut, the sunny Australian voice coming through the line is laughably incongruent.
