Hey guys! Welcome our honorary Mobster of the moment, Erin Tracht, who took time out to catch Craig Brewer's Footloose remake for us. How did it turn out? Take it away, Erin.... Mobsters Rating: Everybody cut Footloose! Diehard fans of the 1984 classic about teens fighting for the right to party (mainly dance in ... Read More

Mobsters Rating: The monster at the heart of The Thing is a curious contraption. It has flown to Earth in a massive starship whose interiors look as if they were furnished by the Ikea in Hell. After smashing into an Antarctic ice shelf, the visitor promptly galumphs from its craft and ... Read More
Hatchet 2: Underwhelming American Horror
Victor Crowley is back! And this time he’s unrated (and it’s personal)! Unfortunately for me, Victor failed to bring plot structure, character development, dread, fright, comedy, suspense, and good dialogue, back with him. Adam Green’s Hatchet failed to illicit any real response from me other than then a pale comparison ... Read More

Mobster's Rating: The world has been torn apart and over-run by vampires, leaving the survivors inert, dead-eyed refuges in a burned-out America. No, I’m not talking about the aftermath of the Twilight phenomenon, but rather Jim Mickle and Nick Damici’s new horror drama, Stakeland. As hard as it may be to ... Read More

Movie Mobsters Rating: You can feel the weariness setting into the zombie sub-genre. We have had every variation on Night of the Living Dead over the past few years, with every potential title arrangement accompanying them. Now, there’s the British Ford brothers and their African zombie pic, The Dead. No fancy ... Read More
Welcome back to Anatomy of a Scene, and the October Horror edition. Last time, we looked at The Cat People. This time, something equally disarming, but on the other end of the spectrum. Sometimes a scene is memorable because of how well it utilizes the tools at hand. Sometimes, it's ... Read More
Review: Blackthorn (2011)
Posted On 07 Oct 2011 By Bartleby. Under 2011, 3 Stars (Fantastic), Action, Action-Adventure, By Genre, Drama, Reviews, Western.
Mobster's Rating: Telling the speculative story of what ‘really happened’ to legendary outlaw Butch Cassidy after that fateful shootout in the boarding house in Bolivia, Blackthorn delivers a decidedly classic Western with an undeniably iconic turn by Sam Sheppard. The result is a film that marches laconically to its own ... Read More

Mobster's Rating: George Clooney’s ambitious and interesting directorial career finally bites off more than it can properly chew with his new political potboiler, The Ides of March. Although it’s never short on tension or aesthetic skill, this latest work lacks the confidence and presence of the others; even with a sports ... Read More

Mobster's Rating: Jean Luc Godard once said that the best way to criticize a movie is to make another movie. This thought popped into my head while watching Shawn Levy’s Real Steel, Touchstone/DreamWorks' newest giant robot adventure. I have no idea if Levy set out to craft an indictment of Michael ...

WATCH ME!!!! 10: The Funhouse A great, but little seen Tobe Hooper film. Takes all the atmosphere of the county fair, add in a monster in a Frankenstein's monster mask, and a sense of impending dread and you have a classic horror film on your hands. If you get a chance, seek ... Read More
