Look Review


OK
The voyeuristic Look begins with statistical information that's perfect for our YouTube world: More than four billion hours of surveillance video are generated every week in the U.S., from roughly 30 million cameras -- and the average American is captured around 200 times a day. Those overwhelming numbers then segue into a film told entirely from surveillance footage. Every scene, every shot.

Unorthodox? Sure. Trailblazing? Nah. Look feels both cool and gimmicky, but has a fairly traditional approach to telling multiple stories, jumping back and forth between teenage sexpots, illicit affairs, and in-home spying. The movie should be a peeping tom's wet dream... if only the material were real.

Cabin Fever Review


Excellent
There once was a time in movie history when party-hardy kids would head into the woods and get their heads bashed in by some masked psycho. Ah, the good old days. Writer/director Eli Roth remembers that time fondly with his no-apologies, balls-to-the-wall, blood-splattering thriller that recalls a time when Leatherface massacred in Texas and Jason spooked Camp Crystal Lake.

Cabin Fever doesn't just look like -- or mock -- those late '70s/early '80s horror thrillers; it actually is one. Roth takes his source material and deftly adds layers, with the result being something eerily familiar and yet altogether original.

Detroit Rock City Review


OK
Twenty years before Marilyn Manson put on ladies' makeup and frightened the crap out of mothers around the nation, a little band called KISS pioneered the idea, and played some good music as a bonus.

While KISS was a few years before my rock & roll prime, they were still quite popular when I was in school, and tales/rumors of Gene Simmons' cow tongue, blood splitting, backwards-masked lyrics, and the infamous "Knights In Satan's Service" moniker were the stuff of legend.

Hip, Edgy, Sexy, Cool Review


Excellent
Robert B. Martin Jr. and Aaron Priest's Hip, Edgy, Sexy, Cool promises that you'll never look at commercials the same way again, and damned if they aren't right on the money. The indie film, directed by and starring the duo, is a classically styled mockumentary about casting commercials (aka very short films), which might sound like a stupid topic but turns out to be hysterically funny.

Martin and Priest take on the roles of The Monkey Brothers, hipster-doofus casting directors who are hired for their biggest job ever -- a commercial for "Salsa Gusto," a daring product out of Salt Lake City of course, with its new ad being helmed by a highly sought-after director. It's a plum gig -- only the Monkeys don't have a bone of ability in their bodies, both earning D- grades in "casting school" at the local technical college. In fact, when it comes time to pick out the head shots they plan to audition, the origin of their Monkey moniker drives the point home.

Detroit Rock City Review


Weak

In 1978, those gratifying but decidedly untalented hard-rock circus clowns known as KISS made a rotten yet strangely enjoyable Z-grade sci-fi flick called "KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park."

In it, the leather and spike-attired, goth-metal band members pathetically cue-carded their way through hero roles in which their famous greasepaint gave them superpowers which they used to battle alien invaders at an amusement park in between terribly staged songs. But they knew the movie stunk. The audience knew the movie stunk. It was part of the fun.

Twenty-one years later comes "Detroit Rock City," another KISS-centric movie that focuses -- wisely or unwisely, take your pick -- on the band's sadly dimwitted, white trash fan base instead of on the band itself.
