Arthur & Mike

12th June 2014 -

 Video

Wallace Avery is struggling with the hardships that life is throwing at him; a boring job, a failed marriage, an estranged son and an unfulfilling relationship; and decides that something must be done in order...

Calvary

11th April 2014 -

 Movie Review

After the 2011 black comedy The Guard, Brendan Gleeson reteams with writer-director John Michael McDonagh for a darker comical drama grappling with issues of faith and forgiveness. McDonagh's usual jagged dialogue and snappy characters are...

The Odd Life of Timothy Green

16th January 2012 -

 Video

Cindy and Jim Green is a young, married couple who are looking forward to starting a family. They try everything they can but it doesn't work. After the couple find out they can never conceive,...

Youth in Revolt

5th February 2010 -

 Movie Review

Maybe this would work if you saw it before any other Michael Cera movies. Or any other quirky, over-written rom-coms. But after all that have gone before, this feels strangely awkward and unconvincing. And rather...

Fletch

4th May 2007 -

 Movie Review

If you were in junior high or high school when Fletch came out, the movie holds enormous nostalgia value, particularly if you also happened to live in L.A. at the time (like me). Fletch revealed...

Narrow Margin (1990)

24th February 2007 -

 Movie Review

It was an odd choice to remake a mediocre 1950s noir, but at least Gene Hackman is engaging as ever in the leading role, however slightly written it is. The cat-and-mouse game of the original...

The Iron Giant

15th January 2007 -

 Movie Review

In the early days of animation, Warner Brothers cartoons spawned out of a desire to displace the overtly conservative and often sappy Disney characters. Bugs, Daffy, and Porky Pig were a little more rambunctious,...

Christmas In The Clouds

4th January 2007 -

 Movie Review

The success of independent films like March of the Penguins, Whale Rider, and My Big Fat Greek Wedding makes you wonder why Hollywood bigshots don't greenlight more projects like them -- modestly budgeted, impassioned movies...

The Milagro Beanfield War

13th February 2006 -

 Movie Review

Who'd of thought that a battle over water rights would make for such an interesting tale? This small movie, Robert Redford's second directorial endeavor after Ordinary People, is surprisingly watchable and gripping, despite a terrible...

Christmas In The Clouds

21st December 2005 -

 Movie Review

The success of independent films like March of the Penguins, Whale Rider, and My Big Fat Greek Wedding makes you wonder why Hollywood bigshots don't greenlight more projects like them -- modestly budgeted, impassioned movies...

The Iron Giant

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

In the early days of animation, Warner Brothers cartoons spawned out of a desire to displace the overtly conservative and often sappy Disney characters. Bugs, Daffy, and Porky Pig were a little more rambunctious,...

Blood Simple

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

The year is 1984. Reagan is looking forward to four more years as president. Orwell's book by the same name is at the top of the popularity bell curve. The Olympic games are held in...

Blade Runner

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

A rare masterpiece in both the sci-fi and film noir genres. Blade Runner makes you think, makes you question reality, and makes you return to watch it again and again. I own both...

William Shakespeare's Romeo Juliet (1996)

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Setting Shakespeare's tragedy of Romeo and Juliet to music by the likes of the Butthole Surfers probably has The Bard rolling in his grave, but what the hell, it's open season on the classics these...

Wild Wild West

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.After the masterful Men In Black, Will Smith and Barry Sonnenfeld have reteamed for another oddball adaptation, but somewhere along the wagon trail to the Old West, they lost the...

The Music of Chance

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Quirky doesn't even begin to describe The Music of Chance, based on a Paul Auster novel and directed by Philip Haas (Up at the Villa). It all starts simply enough: Two men (James Spader and...

Retroactive

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Now a cast list doesn't get much worse than that. With a few bright points (Whaley, Walsh), there's nary a talented bone up there. But surprise, this isn't such a bad movie....

Albino Alligator

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

One of a growing list of recent directorial debuts by actors, Albino Alligator is Kevin Spacey's (Best Supporting Actor winner from The Usual Suspects) baby, and his film is probably the best of the lot....

The Jerk

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

One of Steve Martin's proto-characters, The Jerk isn't quite what his name suggests, he's really more of an idiot than a jerk. "Born a poor black man," the film follows his misadventures from the sharecrop...

Christmas With The Kranks

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Like the honey-glazed ham around which so much of its story sadly revolves, Christmas with the Kranks is tasty at first but soon congeals into little more than a fatty, gelatinous mess. Based on one...

The Glass Shield

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

At least it sounded like a good idea. Unfortunately, the execution of the new Miramax film, The Glass Shield, a drama set in an L.A. sheriff's station, leaves the viewer with little more than...

Ordinary People

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Before Good Will Hunting turned psychiatry into pop culture and before The Ice Storm made suburban angst into a fashion show, Ordinary People opened the eyes of all of us. A bitter and heart-wrenching...

REVIEW COMING SOON

Wild Wild West

8th March 2005 -

 Movie Review

It is readily apparent that Will Smith, Kevin Kline and Kenneth Branagh had a ball on the set of "Wild Wild West."Smith -- playing gun-slinging government agent Jim West -- looks so cool in his...

The Iron Giant

8th March 2005 -

 Movie Review

The great thing about Warner Bros. animated features is that they haven't lost touch with their cartoony roots.The studio's recent releases in the hand-drawn genre, like "Cats Don't Dance" and "Quest for Camelot," have celebrated...

Christmas With The Kranks

8th March 2005 -

 Movie Review

As I write this, the time is 8:32 p.m. on Thursday, November 18, 2004, and I have just walked out on "Christmas With the Kranks" after roughly 45 minutes of mind-numbingly humorless, sit-com barrel-bottom idiocy.An...

Snow Dogs

8th March 2005 -

 Movie Review

Thankfully, the talking pooches basking on beach recliners in the TV commercials for Disney's Iditarod comedy "Snow Dogs" are only from a dream sequence, and not some ill-advised CGI gimmick around which a movie was...
