    “Rampart” is a movie that has so much going for it that you wish it would be better. The director, Oren Moverman (“The Messenger”) has gathered a number of parts that would seem ideal in making a good, old-fashioned crime noir picture. To start with it takes place in L.A., which as we kn...

    Let's put aside the fact that David Fincher's “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” is based on the first book in the ever-so-popular Millennium Trilogy by the late Swedish author Stieg Larsson (and that all three books have been adapted into Swedish films), and examine Fincher's latest wor...

    “War Horse” reeks of Steven Spielberg. It has the kind of human-creature connections and wonder that we saw in “E.T,” the battlefield grittiness in “Saving Private Ryan”(“War Horse” takes place during World War 1) and finally a touch of the darkness we saw in “Schindler’s List....

    It took some courage on Michel Hazanavicius' part to make “The Artist” in the style of an old-fashioned silent film. However, considering that this film is about the rise and fall of an aging silent movie star, this style gives the movie its sense of identity. Without that, “The Artist” w...

    Regardless of what you think of Roman Polanski’s new film “Carnage,” everyone can relate to it. Two married couples meet to discuss a playground fight that took place between their two kids, which inevitably leads to verbal warfare. Now maybe you haven’t been in that exact situation (not all...

    You’ve got to hand it to Martin Scorsese. The 69-year-old director is always trying something new. Last year he had his hand in the mystery-thriller genre with “Shutter Island” and this year, with the family adventure/fantasy “Hugo” (based on the book “The Invention of Hugo Cabaret” by...

    Jon Favreau’s “Cowboys and Aliens” is two kinds of films in one. A western film and an alien film. It fails as both. It fails as a western because every aspect of it isn’t believable beyond a typical western reenactment. The leading actors give their usual performances, except in cowboy ...

    Glenn Ficara and John Requa’s (“I Love You Phillip Morris”) latest film “Crazy, Stupid, Love” has a lot going for it. It’s a well intentioned, touching romantic comedy about a whole lot of things, including young love, forbidden love, growing up, dealing with divorce, being something yo...

    As I sat down at the press screening of Luke Greenfield’s “Something Borrowed” I took a moment and scanned the. The majority of the crowd consisted of women in their twenties. It was a microcosm of what the auditoriums will probably look like on this film’s opening weekend. And why shoul...

    The thing that made Wes Craven’s 1996 horror film “Scream” famous and successful is that it took all the clichés from the popular slasher films and mushed them together to create something fresh and original. He followed it with two decent sequels. Now here we are with the fourth instal...

    Memo to future comedy movie writers/directors: Setting a movie in medieval times but having the humor be modern is not funny. It didn’t work in “Year One” and it doesn’t work in David Gordon Green’s new film “Your Highness.” I’m not sure why, it seems like it would work but for ...

    Zach Snyder’s “Sucker Punch” is less of a film and more of a video game waiting to be made. Five beautiful looking babes fight their way through different scenarios, or levels. Like an undead World War 1 battleground or a twisted castle siege. They have to fight enemies, such as mutant Samurai...

    Tom McCarthy’s “Win Win” is the kind of movie that I have been waiting for this year. It’s a movie that doesn’t need car chases or violence to convey its point. The most action it has is the occasional wrestling match. Through his script McCarthy blends the perfect amount of comedy and dra...

    Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are two of Britain’s biggest comedy stars, and they have good reason to be. In their two previous films “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” they’ve shown that they have perfect comedic chemistry and play off each other’s personas very well. Pegg being the confi...

    Alien movies are usually fun and entertaining up to a certain point. The good ones like “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” or “Signs” do an excellent job of building up suspense and wonder but then at the end they make the mistake of showing the alien too much and it ruins the wonderful bu...

    Writer-director George Nolfi’s “The Adjustment Bureau” presents an intriguing concept: What if everything you did was all part of a pre-written plan and if you went off that path an unknown force would step in and make small changes or “adjustments” to get you back on that path? I ima...

    What is Nichole Kidman doing in this movie? What’s the recent nominee for Best Actress for her role in “Rabbit Hole” doing in a B grade, romantic comedy with Adam Sandler, where she plays a snobbish and superficial college rival of leading lady Jennifer Anniston? Seriously, did she have nothin...

    Javier Bardem is an amazing actor with a lot of range. He is able to go from creepy and intimidating (“No Country for Old Men”) to nice and charming (“Eat Pray Love”). In Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “Biutuful,” Bardem gives a sincere and down to earth performance as a man who goes o...

    Ron Howard’s “The Dilemma” is a buddy comedy, pure and simple. Though it’s not a buddy comedy in the way “The Hangover” or “Hot Tub Time Machine” is. The main characters don’t go on any crazy antics, or talk about sex while shouting the f-word every other remark. They act normally ...

    Ever since the 1973 film “The Exorcist,” Hollywood has been crazed with exorcisms. Following “The Exorcist” there were two sequels, two prequels, and a few more unrelated films like the “The Last Exorcism,” which came out last year. But since “The Exorcist” the movies haven’t been ...

    As I sat down to watch Simon West’s new film “The Mechanic,” and I saw the logo of CBS Films, the production company that produced it, I gave a sigh. I knew I was in for a disaster. CBS Films is the same company that produced the Dwayne Johnson disaster “Faster” that came out last year. T...

    Zombies are one of the most popular monsters of all time. They have inspired a generation of movies, video games, and books, and have earned their place among other popular monsters like vampires and werewolves. However, there have never really been any zombie TV shows. That is, until now, with ...

    Shana Festes’ “Country Strong” is a fairly upbeat movie about four people’s struggles in the country music business. Even at its lowest moments the film never manages to be a complete downer and there’s something to be said for movies like that. Not all of us can endure gritty, depressing ...

    There’s a pivotal scene in Danny Boyals’ “127 Hours” when our protagonist Aron Ralston (James Franco) gets his arm pinned between a rock and is unable to move it. Up until this point Ralston has been in complete control. He has been mountain biking and hiking on rocks like it’s no big deal...
