Review: Spring

Directors: Aaron Moorhead, Justin Benson Stars: Nadia Hilker, Lou Taylor Pucci, Nick Nevern Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead are on something of a roll. 2012's Resolution was a smart character-driven twist on horror conventions.

Review: The Voices

Director: Marjane Satrapi Stars: Anna Kendrick, Gemma Arterton, Ryan Gosling ***Contains potential spoilers*** The Voices is a movie starring Ryan Reynolds where his cat and dog talk to him. Yeah, the red flags are waving already, right?
