Short Ends and Leader

August 2013

‘The Great Gatsby’ Proves That Baz Luhrmann is Our Disco Michael Bay

One of the year’s worst films, Luhrmann’s trashy, overhyped, faux- Jazz Age spectacle is so shallow as to be creatively nonexistent.


Fan Fiction Fail - ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’

It's all pathetic and piecemeal, like a mix tape made by someone else but that you take credit for.


Don’t Open That Door! #53: ‘The Abominable Snowman’ (1957)

Welcome to our weekly field guide to 1950s horror and sci-fi movies and the creatures that inhabit them. This week: An ugly Himalayan Yeti encounters an even uglier American researcher in The Abominable Snowman.


You Can’t (or Shouldn’t) Go Home Again: ‘The World’s End’

Hopefully, this isn't the last time we see the Wright, Pegg and Frost trio in action. Considering the movies they've made together, such an absence would be a crime against comedy.


The 10 Greatest Mythic Movie Monsters

They represent the best of what movies have to offer. Here are 10 magical creatures made even more mythic by the moviemaking geniuses in Tinseltown (and elsewhere).


Why Do We Care How Much Movies Cost to Make?

Money matters to audiences because you made it matter to them. You thrust dollar signs and the discuss of same like it's an important part of the artistic process.


The Evil that Walks Among Us: ‘The Jeffrey Dahmer Files’

While it provides an intriguing approach to the case, The Jeffrey Dahmer Files suffers from a feeling of incompleteness.


‘Swamp Thing’ Is the Superhero Movie’s Awkward Middle Child

That anything remotely watchable - and, indeed, that's what this likeable lark is - resulted is a testament to the talents involved.
