Movie Review: The Kids Are All Right

Movie Review: The Kids Are All Right

“The Kids Are All Right” opens with shots of 18-year-old Joni (a wonderful Mia Wasikowska) playing Scrabble with friends and 15-year-old Laser (Josh Hutcherson) sniffing a crushed Sudafed with his skateboarding buddy Clay, all to Vampire Weekend’s “Cousins.” Joni and Laser are gorgeous, smart and nice. Despite the minor drug use and usual teenager...

The Films of John Huston: Key Largo

The Films of John Huston: Key Largo

Huston doesn’t give much time to Key Largo in his autobiography, save for sharing his dissatisfaction with Warner Brothers in the late 1940s and some epic stories of his gambling debts. Offhandedly he mentions that it was nominated for Best Picture and Claire Trevor won the award for Best Supporting Actress. What small part...

Movie Review: Salt

Movie Review: Salt

Let’s take care of this right away.  If you cannot move beyond a really ridiculous plot in a movie, don’t bother going to see Salt.  If you are the type of person to give such things a pass, you might have a pretty good time at Salt. It’s common knowledge that the lead role...

Movie Review: Ramona and Beezus

Movie Review: Ramona and Beezus

Almost six decades of children have grown up with Ramona Quimby, the precocious heroine of Beverly Cleary’s Ramona book series. Ramona and Beezus was published in 1955, but Cleary didn’t flesh out the series until well into the 1970′s.  This new film adaptation is based on Ramona Forever, which was published in 1984. Ramona...

Movie Review: Best Worst Movie

Movie Review: Best Worst Movie

I finally got to view the documentary Best Worst Movie.  Most film types had an opportunity to see it at various festivals last year, and now the movie is showing in limited engagements across the nation. If it comes to your town, see it, immediately. Best Worst Movie is funny, poignant, awkward, endearing, and...

The Films of John Huston: Treasure of the Sierra Madre

July 19, 2010
The Films of John Huston: Treasure of the Sierra Madre

After The Maltese Falcon, Treasure of the Sierra Madre is probably Huston’s most famous film—the two may vie for the title of best known. It’s a great movie in the sense that The Godfather and Casablanca are great movies: memorable characters, rich in themes, steep in action, imminently watchable.  The kind of “old” movie...

Movie Review: Cyrus

July 16, 2010
Movie Review: Cyrus

Cyrus is the kind of independent movie that makes me love independent movies, so it might seem paradoxical that I don’t want to write this review. I just want to tell you to go directly to your nearest theater and see it, without knowing anything about it beforehand. But I do have to write...

Movie Review: Inception

Movie Review: Inception

I guess statistically speaking, it was bound to happen.  If you see enough movies, eventually you are going to witness a great movie that just doesn’t do it for you.  Such was the case with Inception.  I was poised to love the movie and declare it a cinematic masterpiece, if not one of my...

Movie Review: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

If you saw the trailer for The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and thought to yourself, “YES.  I have been waiting for this.  The team that brought us National Treasure and National Treasure: Book of Secrets have made another film starring Nic Cage that looks a bit like Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief and I...

The Films of John Huston: Across the Pacific

The Films of John Huston: Across the Pacific

First off, let me admit that I jumped the gun getting to Huston’s war documentaries before covering 1942’s Across the Pacific. But I’m kind of glad I did, because it provides a nice break between Let There Be Light and Treasure of the Sierra Madre—two very intense films. Pacific is much lighter and a...
