It is irritating to see a filmmaker get close to putting something great out there, but still be ultimately undone by script issues. Split has the makings of a very clever and tense psychological thriller. A terrific turn from star James McAvoy certainly deserves plenty of praise. Still, for every new layer and reveal, there […]

Drop Some Dope Rhymes And Make ‘The Visit’ To Grandma’s (Movie Review)

I feel like a broken record saying this, but never in a million years did I ever think I’d be back in a theater seat giving another M. Night Shyamalan film a chance, or even a second thought for that matter.  After Earth and The Last Airbender were the straw that broke the camel’s back for […]

Debut of M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘The Visit’ Trailer

The trailer for Universal Pictures’ The Visit has just debuted online.  I remember seeing this one before Unfriended (that’s a whole other story) and thought it looked really good and then I saw the name M.

Aaron’s Top 10 Best and Worst Films of 2010

It’s the end of 2010, and with that I have a list of my favorite movies. The following list contains all of the films that I felt defined what I seek out in most films; namely that they have elements of entertainment, intrigue, or master craftsmanship when it comes to the filmmaking. Some may only have a few of these aspects covered, others may have all three bases dominated. Given my lengthy honorable mention section, there were certainly a good number of films that I had to choose from, but this list, I feel, represents the best of what 2010 had to offer theatrically:
