Roger Ebert (1942-2013)

The first time I met Roger was in the Lake Screening Room. I had just moved to Chicago and done a few reviews at the AMC East and on Michigan and the old Kerasote. This was a guy I’d been reading all my life, writing down notes about which “Great Movies” to see, which...

Movie Review: The Host

When I told my girlfriend I was off to review to the new Stephenie Meyer movie and that, having seen one of the Twilight movies, I had low expectations, she responded, “It could be worse. She could have teamed up with Nicholas Sparks.” “Good point!” I said, and then, a half hour into the...

Movie Review: G.I. Joe: Retaliation

I had a soft spot for 2009′s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and I have a soft spot for this, even with its flaws. If you remember the end of the last film (and never mind if you didn’t), Zartan is impersonating the President of the United States in one step of Cobra...

Movie Review: Olympus Has Fallen

Die Hard on a White House. That’s basically it right there. You have your former law enforcer — here his name is Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) and he used to be Secret Service assigned to protect the President (Aaron Eckhart). During a snowstorm, Some Damn Thing hit the Presidential Limo’s windshield and fishtailed the...

Movie Review: The Croods

Silly, silly fun. There’s not much of a plot — The Croods are a family of cave-dwellers whose home is threatened by earthquakes; the dad Grug (Nicolas Cage) is over protective; the daughter Eep (Emma Stone) is curious; they meet up with a smarty-pants guy named Guy (Ryan Reynolds) who teaches them the secret...

Movie Review: Admission

Despite having a poster that looks as dangerously banal as The Switch, Admission is so charming that it doesn’t need many jokes. The star, of course, is one of the most charming people working today, Tina Fey, who really should play Dorothy Parker some time. Here, however, she’s Portia Nathan, an admissions officer at...

Documentary Review: No Place on Earth

The film opens with Chris Nicola, a government employee with a passion for cave-diving. During one of his trips exploring the “gypsum giants” of the Ukraine, he discovers a handful of artifacts — a boot, a lantern — that have no business being there. Back in town, he asks the locals if they know...

Movie Review: Spring Breakers

Lest we forget, Harmony Korine is the guy who got his start writing Larry Clark’s Kids, a film whose characters drank, did drugs, had sex, beat up strangers — all very adult things — and was slapped with an NC-17 rating and a heap of controversy because its characters were all, well, kids. Eighteen...

Movie Review: Ginger & Rosa

Ginger and Rosa is populated with the kind of people you dream of being as a teenager but come to hate once you get a job. That the movie portrays them so accurately is a credit; that it romanticizes them cannot be helped. The director, Sally Potter, may be drawing on nostalgic memory, as...

Movie Review: Stoker

Stoker is a film at odds with itself. On paper, it’s a slick piece of neo-gothic thrills, parading its Jane-Eyre/Mysteries of Udolpho (and more) influences, with red rooms, sinister-seeming relatives, fogged-out basements, and driblets of blood. More plot-fully speaking, you have the mysterious death of a loved one, in this case the father Richard...

Movie Review: Dead Man Down

On the one hand, there’s a revenge thriller with shootouts, car chases, detective work, and a dynamite climax. On the other, there’s a woefully underwritten love story that can’t think of anything else but to have the leads stare at each other. And not the meaningful kind of staring either — Farrell spends about...

The Manliest Movie Collection in History

On a recent trip back home, I spent one evening going over my parents’ movie collection, which is to say, all the films that shaped my childhood. Of course, when you’re young, your parents’ taste in movies is your taste, that, and whatever gamble you make on those Fridays after school — around five...

If you experience an overwhelming sense of déjà vu while watching Safe Haven, it may be because you already saw the movie back when it was called Sleeping With The Enemy (1991). That film featured Julia Roberts as a wife who orchestrated a daring escape from her abusive husband and disappeared into the safe...

Movie Review: A Good Day to Die Hard

What the Hell is going on? Who’s in what car? Which one is the bad guy? These are the questions that arose during the first fifteen minutes of A Good Day to Die Hard‘s car chase. That the action confuses more than excites is a bad, bad sign. The movie opens in a Russian...

Movie Review: Side Effects

Side Effects is the perfect response to Broken City and Promised Land, two films that offered great potential but drowned themselves in shallowness, eschewing dimension and complexity to make the bad guys really bad while taking their message as inherently superior. In short, they were two films that purported a moral they never got...

Here are some of the most historic bromances you can find on film – from some of the most classic top comedy films to more dramatic fare. The Classic Comedic Duos -...

Movie Review: Warm Bodies

Is this a parody or a ripoff? Warm Bodies is so up front with its copies — copies– of Twilight that, judging from the trailer alone, by the time it hit theatres, I was sure it had to be a straight-up uppercut to tweener romance. I’m not so sure now. But I am certain...
