The Dictator

People will be talking about "The Dictator" in 10 years — just about whether it emboldened Sacha Baron Cohen to greater challenges or mired him in mediocrity.

Dark Shadows

Mostly self-assured in its silly-serious storytelling, "Dark Shadows" is pitched somewhere between a timeless play's tragedy and '70s pop-song punch.

The Raven

This macabre, occasionally mournful tale of Edgar Allan Poe's pain & fear doesn't quite go into darkness peering. But it's no thriller at which you're jeering.
Dana (Kristen Connolly) and Holden (Jesse Williams) in THE CABIN IN THE WOODS.

The Cabin in the Woods

Clever and comical, but cold and clinical, "Cabin" is a pleasant, if passionless, puzzle — a fan dance for fanboys that delivers the goods while tweaking them.
