Duct-tape-cures-all MacGyver in Space

Time to wax nostalgic: Once upon a time, many congressional sessions ago, America dreamed of space. Instead of aircraft-carrier saber rattling, international tension was ratcheted in a contest to see who could invent more, reach further. The country was gripped with pride for bold explorers, and the world united, as any time a person left earth’s atmosphere, they ceased being labeled by nation and became simply...

Pawn sacrifice We Was Smart Once

The Visit

A middling found footage horror-comedy that counts as a triumph for this director.


The Stanford Prison Experiment

A recreation of the actual experiment that chills but has little new to say.

On DVD: Mad Max: Fury Road

It's basically "Smash the Patriarchy: The Movie" with really awesome cars.
