Reviews of 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,' 'Into the Storm' and 'An Honest Liar' Lead Our Film Review Roundup
Published Aug 08, 2014We're back again to ring in the weekend with another Film Review Roundup. This week's roundup has something for everyone, whether you're itching to see a summer blockbuster, or you want to sink your mind's teeth into a documentary. We've got all that and more in the reviews down below; let our critics tell you what they thought before you commit to a feature presentation. As always, we'll be back next Friday with more brand new film reviews, but until then, keep an eye on our Recently Reviewed section for more.
Relive your childhood with the CGI-fuelled rebirth of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Whether you grew up a diehard fan, or you know a young millennial who never caught on to the trend, check out the link above to see what our reviewer thought of Jonathan Liebesman's big-ticket take on the classic turtle team.
Into the Storm starts with the increasingly familiar "found footage" premise that mockumentaries like The Blair Witch Project cemented as a genre some time ago. So, what happens when a couple teenagers, a few rogue storm chasers and the local drunk get swept up in a tornado? You can find out by reading our review.
Escape-artist-turned-hoax-buster James "The Amazing" Randi is the subject of An Honest Liar, a documentary exploring Randi's career as a magician and as a "demystifier of paranormal and pseudoscientific claims." Not sure what that entails? Our review will explain it to you.
Next, travel to Iceland with our review of Land Ho!, a comedic journey about accepting one's own morality that our reviewer calls "a delightfully poignant feature about the experience of aging."
Finally, read our review of About Alex to see if the reunion of friends in the wake of an attempted suicide is a heartwarming hit, or if it's too The Big Chill-esque to succeed.
