I usually wait until the final paragraph before finally telling you whether the film I am reviewing is actually good or not. It’s pretty much the number one trick of the trade. This time, however, I can’t hold it back.
You could spend your time in a vampire apocalypse (Stake Land), or watch circus folk fall for each other and a pachyderm (Water For Elephants), but your best bet might be watching yourself get sold (Pom Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold).

This week you have some decent choices: a medieval stoner comedy, a remake of an 80’s classic (for better or worse), and a teenage assassin on the wrong side of the CIA. Not bad.
