  • Lincoln Review

    A national legend is turned into a riveting human character in Spielberg's surprisingly funny political drama.

  • Flight Review

    A character-driven film that could use a little turbulence glides smoothly along without much drama.

  • Ice Age: Continental Drift Review

    Veers young, but melts your blues away!

  • Red Tails Review

    A drawn out history lesson that nose-dives from beginning to end.

  • War Horse Review

    Spielberg's colt classic is full of heart and thrills—but only canters between both.

  • Mars Needs Moms Review

    The film gives its audience a visually-stunning ride, but the empty plot leaves them as empty as the empty spray-paint can it used to paint.

  • Rollerball Review

    Rollerball is slightly entertaining, if you don't stop and think about it too much. Otherwise, you'll realize how silly it actually is.

"Makarov" both a popular Russian name, and also slang for the word "gun," serves as a metaphor for the brutal reality of life in a post-totalitarian society. The story's protagonist, Makarov, embodies this struggle as he becomes more mechanical and less spiritual upon acquiring a gun.
