Mike Cahill's Another Earth proposes what would happen if we were confronted with another world, another life, another version of ourselves. A smart science fiction drama with equally smart characters.

MOBSTERS RATING: Although it’s being marketed and pitched as a prequel to the 1968 Charlton Heston classic, Rupert Wyatt’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes is actually a remake of sorts. Mirroring some of the events and characters of the fourth sequel in the franchise, Conquest of the Planet ... Read More

Mobsters Rating: Transformers: Dark of the Moon may be the ultimate Michael Bay movie. Featuring skull-rattling action sequences, state-of-the-art special effects, over-heated set pieces and a severe lack of anything pretending to be intelligence or modesty, Transformers 3 comes off like a hyperactive kid’s afternoon playtime; a golden-age alien invasion ...

I am a proud child of the 80s; a once flannel-wearing, Goonies-watching, Zebra-gum chewing, Q-bert playing brat who recalls a time when there were new episodes of The Snorks, Small Wonder and Manimal airing on fuzzy network television. I present this context because JJ Abrams Super 8 has been specifically ... Read More

MOBSTER’S RATING: Kenneth Branagh's 'Thor' is the kind of big, fun silly summer movie that looks more simplistic than it actually is. When you are adapting a comic book character that's part of a big commercial tie-in with a franchise like The Avengers, this quality is a welcome one. On the heels of ... Read More

Taking pieces of Groundhog Day, The Manchurian Candidate, and The Matrix and mixing them all together, Ducan Jones comes up with the best action movie of the year to date.

An enjoyably wild ride, Limitless suffers from a choppy half-baked script but ultimately gets saved by a charismatic and charming Bradley Cooper

'Battle: Los Angeles' has already been savaged by some critics, but in the end this is like complaining you got a greasy hamburger from McDonalds. The film delivers what the trailers are selling, a fast-paced and bombastic ground-level assault that pits alien invaders against U.S. Marines.

Emily Blunt and Matt Damon fight fate and destiny in George Nolfi's The Adjustment Bureau. Hollywood has a less than stellar track record with adapting Philip K. Dick to the screen. Is this another 'Blade Runner' or an 'Imposter'?

Three is dead. I am Number 4. I'm also cliched, maudlin and moderately fun if you don't think too hard about me. And if you have never read a sci-fi novel before, I might just be breathtakingly original.
