Review: Between Worlds

— by RON WILKINSON — The great thing about Nicolas Cage’s bad movies is that he seems to be having such a good time making them it becomess infectious. Screened at Fantastic Fest 2018 in Austin, the genre non-busting B movie “Between Worlds” is no exception. Even better, this flick[...]

Three Clips from ‘Drive Angry’

— by AMANDA KOEHLER — Oh, Nic Cage. I’d like to say “how the mighty have fallen,” but to be honest, I’ve never been a Cage fan. There’s just something about him that doesn’t click for me. The only movies I’ve seen that I’ve enjoyed him in a[...]

Under Review: ‘Season of the Witch’
