    Ten Greatest Movie Villains of All Time (Joey Magidson)

    Oh boy. As much as I love making lists (and I really love making lists, particularly the ones we do here), this one has been giving me kind of a hard time. I went back and forth with a huge long list of contenders, toying with different limitations to force on myself, and just a […] More

  • Ben Affleck explains how ‘Argo’ was influenced by ‘Red State’

    It’s no secret around these parts that I’m a pretty big Kevin Smith fan, especially last year’s surprising ‘Red State’, but I realize that I seem to be in the minority here.

  • Joey’s DVD Picks of the Week (10/18/2011)

    This week, one of the best films of the year comes to Blu-Ray and DVD, along with a host of other, less worthy fare.  It’s another instance of lots of quantity, but less in the way of quality.  I’m hardly complaining, since there are a few solid choices this week, but only one really screams […] More

  • Red State (***½)

    With ‘Red State’, Kevin Smith has a done a complete 180 as a filmmaker.  The writer/director known for being a premiere comedy auteur has made a gritty horror/thriller satire that defies convention.  It’s a rather brutal film, one that’s shocking in its sudden violence and unrelenting in its tension.  The satire is sharp, but never light.  The […] More
