Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County
- Excerpt: Cinema Fearité presents ‘Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County’ – Aliens Crashing Thanksgiving Dinner In An Early Found Footage Debacle
- Excerpt: …lured me in with the promise that it would mix food porn with classic kung fu fights, sort of ‘Iron Chef’ meets The ‘Man with the Iron Fists.’ The actual experience was more like watching MMA bouts interrupted by Ramen noodle commercials.
- Excerpt: The Enforcer is a captivating piece of entertainment that chooses to go about sharing its tale of the birth of a new nefarious underworld business model with a creative and challenging plot structure. It trusts the audience will not mind the complex route taken to reach the eventual end game, one that spreads the spotlight on a great number of actors surrounding legend Humphrey Boggart.
- Excerpt: The question is whether ‘Mr. Jones’‘ ramshackle construction is the result of sloppy craftsmanship, or a reflection of an unreliable, unstable narrator.

Song of Norway
Tango & Cash
- Excerpt: Nothing makes a helluva lot of sense in Tango & Cash, but you don’t get much of an impression that anyone was concerned with such matters as logic — when you’ve got Stallone and Russell in a buddy movie, you can probably put in a bunch of oddball touches and gay subtext without anybody paying much mind, so long as they’re surrounded by the requisite number of building explosions and wacky one-liners.
