Blu-ray Review: Criterion's MILDRED PIERCE Stuns

10+ Years Later: Is ROBOCOP Still Arresting?

Gleaming as ever like some kind of well armed brushed-metal action figure, Paul Verhoeven's 1987 RoboCop continues to reflect striking truths amid daft action. Although now considered a sci-fi classic, one can be forgiven for initially assuming a certain b-movie...

Review: LOGAN, Superheroes Aren't Just for Kids Anymore
