Mama: Movie Review

Published by

Mama – Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jessica Chastain, Megan Charpentier, Isabelle Nélisse
Most January movies are less exciting than a new episode of Two and a Half Men. It's usually the month reserved for the cream of the crap. But Guillermo Del Toro's Mama, which hits theaters tomorrow, defies the first month movie stereotypes. For one, it doesn't suck. It's a well-crafted horror film, mainly thanks to Jessica Chastain, who is brilliant and unique in everything...

It's unfortunate that the debate about whether Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty is pro or anti-torture came to fore before the film went into wide release, as it may paint the film as something it's not. Regardless if the film is true or "true," the movie is done as a procedural, and though torture is shown, that's not what the film is about. Zero Dark...

Published by

Emma Stone and Viola Davis in The Help
Racism is still a hot button issue in America, and though the civil rights movement was a previous generation's struggle, it's hard to address those issues cinematically and still make an entertaining film. 2011's The Help comes at a time when issue pictures are out of fashion, and so it seems slightly fresher than it might have had it come out in any other decade....
