“Jennifer’s Body”

The movie never intended to frighten with jump scares or monster makeup. “Jennifer’s Body” was about the visceral, heart-pounding brutality with which teenage girls tear themselves and each other apart.


Anytime Guest’s regulars are assembled on screen, hilarity ensues.


Whether it’s comedy, horror homages or writing, “Boo!” fails on every level.

“Dazed and Confused”

You can play the movie during a casual group hangout or watch intently on your computer alone with headphones, staring into the characters’ souls.


The film is horribly balanced in terms of emotion, lacking gravity where it is badly needed and placing stress in high doses where it is unnecessary.

“Before the Flood”

Before the Flood” does an impressive job of showcasing the multiple perspectives surrounding climate change, as well as its real-time impacts and possible solutions.
