Rating: PG-13 Stars: Daniel Radcliffe, James McAvoy, Jessica Brown Findlay, Andrew Scott, Freddie Fox Writer: Max Landis, screen story by Max Landis, based on Mary Shelley’s novel FRANKENSTEIN Director: Paul McGuigan Distributor: 20th Century Fox Release Date (theatrical): November 25, 2015 “You all know the story,” Igor (Daniel Radcliffe) observes in voiceover just as VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN begins.

Movie Review: CHRONICLE

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Dane Dehaan, Alex Russell, Michael B. Jorgan, Michael Kelly, Ashley Hinshaw Writer: Max Landis, story by Max Landis & Josh Trank Director: Josh Trank Distributor: Twentieth Century Fox Release Date: February 3, 2012 Two things should be noted upfront about CHRONICLE.

The second is that it proves there are still new things to say about the genre of superpowers (“superheroes” would be a misstatement in this instance). A “found footage” movie, CHRONICLE begins when teen loner Andrew (Dane Dehaan) obtains an old video camera and starts […]Read On »
