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...

A Bromance For The Ages

Although the term “bromance” might be a relatively recent term, male-male bonding has been going on for nearly as long as movies have been around. 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 -...

Reality Shows That Ended Up Being Staged

Ever watch “Storage Wars” and think all that treasure unearthed from all those storage lockers seemed a little, well, too good to be true? “Storage Wars” Turns out you may be on to something. Dave Hester, a former star of the A&E reality show known for his bellowing bidding style, recently filed a lawsuit...

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...

Movie Review: Bullet to the Head

Walter Hill and Sylvester Stallone? I’m in. Walter Hill and Louisiana? Double in. Christian Slater and Mr. Eko as the bad guys and explosions and huge flailing boobies? This is already the best movie of the year. What’s there to say? Stallone is Jimmy Bobo, a Louisiana-based hitman whose latest job goes south after...

Movie Review: Stand Up Guys

So many actors, so little interest. Stand Up Guys follows a day in the life of aging mobsters Val (Al Pacino) and Doc (Christopher Walken), specifically the day after Val’s released from a 28-year stint in prison. Val’s eager to catch up on all the vices he’s been deprived of for the past nigh-30...

The Films of John Huston: Moulin Rouge

Moulin Rouge was the film I was watching when I abruptly stopped my Huston retrospective over two years ago. I just couldn’t get through the film. But after going through Huston’s autobiography once more, I decided to give it another go. It opens on the Rouge’s windmill with the Lautrec lettering announcing the year...

Movie Review: Parker

Parker starts out strong, spends the next hour doing nothing, then it ends with a good-enough set piece. That’s pretty much the review right there, and it’s going to be a struggle to think of anything more to say. There’s a lot of things I can expect a Jason Statham action movie to be,...

Movie Review: Broken City

Broken City is no Chinatown. It takes many of the 1974 Polanski classic’s basic elements – both protagonists are private eyes who used to be cops and specialize in extramarital affairs. Both get involved in schemes to bilk to poor schlubs of a major city (both schemes being land deals, no less). Both have...

Movie Review: Gangster Squad

Gangster Squad! doesn’t actually include an exclamation point in its title, but it should. It really, really should. When you open your film with a guy being gorily drawn and quartered and then savaged by wolves, you’ve earned some punctuation. And since the rest of the film is as messy as that poor sap’s...

Movie Review: Zero Dark Thirty

On May 2, 2011, special forces from the United States stormed Osama bin Laden’s compound at Abbottabad, Pakistan. That I had to look up the precise dates and location and confirm that they were our own special forces (and not, say, some coalition) testifies to my ignorance. However, I don’t think I’m alone in...

Movie Review: Django Unchained

About 15 minutes in I decided I wanted some popcorn, and upon looking at my phone, it appeared that an hour and a half had passed. From what I understand, that hasn’t been the standard reaction across the Internet, but for me at least, Django was incredibly easy to watch, and not for a...

Movie Review: Promised Land

So far as I’ve seen, the kerfuffle surrounding the funding and production of Promised Land has received more attention than the film itself. So in case you haven’t heard, the film portrays the process of hydraulic fracturing or “fracking” in a negative light. People such as Phelim MacAleer, director of the documentary FrackNation, and...

Movie Review: Jack Reacher

Dammit.  All I wanted for Christmas was Die Hard.  I wanted Bruce and bare feet and crunching chards of glass.  I wanted foreign scoundrel Hans Gruber, complete with a team of rogue terrorists, implementing a devious heist, all encased in a skyscraper set to blow, with the calvary coming from within.  I wanted YIPPIE-KAY-YAY and...

Movie Review: This Is 40

It’s a sort of sequel to 2007′s Knocked Up in the sense that it focuses on the supporting characters Debbie (director Judd Apatow’s real-life wife Leslie Mann) and Pete (Paul Rudd), both turning 40 the same week and juggling a handful of personal and financial problems. Paul manages a near-bankrupt record label, signing such...

Movie Review: Les Misérables

I’ve read a lot of novels, and I’ve heard that Les Misérables is the best. I hadn’t read it, and I didn’t believe it. After seeing Les Misérables, I’m starting to. The film is based on the musical, but its chief accomplishment is adapting the depth and breadth of an immense work. Like the...

Movie Review: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

It’s been nearly ten years since Middle Earth unfurled across the screen, and in that time, the Lord of the Rings films have cemented their place in cinematic history. The actors have aged, technology has evolved, and the influence of Peter Jackson’s trilogy is evidenced in all the three-plus-hour epics we’ve seen over the...

Movie Review: Hyde Park on Hudson

The fundamental problem with Hyde Park on Hudson is that it promises so many interesting characters and so many spirited performances, and then focuses its attention on the dullest one. That’s not a reflection on Laura Linney’s performance as Margaret Suckley either; rather she has nothing to work with. When, early in the film,...
