Throwback Tuesday: The Burbs (1989)

It’s been years since I’ve seen Joe Dante’s The ‘Burbs. As a kid I adored it—watching it so many times that the entire thing feels branded onto my cerebral cortex. Just the other day my wife and I were discussing the issue of lunatic neighbors, and the film came up. It seemed like an obvious candidate for […]

Review: 50/50 (2011)

Mobster’s Rating: ‘It’s cancer.’ Those words are a devastating diagnosis, whether delivered in the real world or up on a movie screen. For films, it’s usually a death sentence of saccharine melodrama and repetitious, somber goodbyes tearfully delivered by self-serious actors. Has there ever been a truly funny movie about terminal illness that wasn’t also […]

Foreign Matter: Kill List Review (2011)

Our reviewer across the pond, Jarv, sent in this review and it sounds like a doozy. It’s apparently a psychological horror film in the vein of The Wicker Man, and sounds like a mix of modern indie filmmaking and 70′s existential thrillers. I’m personally intrigued by this, and anxious to see it. There’s been a sincere lack of good horror […]

The Weekly Creepy Review: Saint (2011)

Mobsters Rating: Rosy red cheeks. Sack full of toys. Spreading joy to children. All of it apparently bull. Talk about having your cherished childhood memories wrecked to pieces. The American version of Santa Claus, he of the big white beard and Coca Cola bottle, has received a serious dressing-down on the international front lately. Last […]

Throwback Tuesday: The Company of Wolves (1984)

“Never stray from the path, never eat a windfall apple, and never trust a man whose eyebrows meet.” The Company of Wolves is either a child’s nightmarish fever dream, or a lurid fairy tale about the dark, shiny promise of adulthood. I’ve just finished watching the film for the first time in years, and I’m not […]

Review: Kung-Fu Panda 2 (2011)

Mobsters Rating:  ‘Kung Fu Panda 2’ is the kind of movie that gives sequels a good name. Helmed by first time director Jennifer Yuh Nelson, the new installment isn’t a simple rehash, but makes good on the promises of the original and pushes the franchise to new heights. Not pausing to recap, Kung-Fu Panda 2 opens with a […]

Review: X-Men: First Class (2011)

MOBSTER’S RATING: My big problem with the first three Marvel X-Men movies—indeed, with most comic book films in general—really comes down to the costumes. No, I’m not talking about fidelity or lack thereof to whatever threads the characters were supposed to wear in the comics. I’m talking about an issue of identity. In the first […]
