    The Beaver - Directed by Jodie Foster

    It would have been so much easier if The Beaver stunk and then I could write again about how I can't stand Mel Gibson (and not just for what he did to his girlfriend) and how I don't understand how Jodie Foster could still continue to stand up for him. Mel Gibson should actually be sending Jodie fl...

    Vince Vaughn Will 'Lay The Favorite' With Stephen Frears

    It's a been a while since Vince Vaughn truly stepped outside his comfort zone. Oh sure, he was very briefly in "Into The Wild," but for the past decade he's been phoning it in with films like "The Break Up," "Fred Claus," "Couples Retreat" and this year's "The Dilemma," so color us very pleasantly s...

    Review: 'Daydream Nation' Is An Emo, Teenage Angst Mixtape & An Insufferable Afterschool Special

    Featuring a dreamy indie-rock soundtrack that quickly turns sour, a sense of disenfranchised teenage romanticism that curdles under its own emo, twee-ness and some occasionally charming performances and admittedly clever quips, the indie film, “Daydream Nation” can’t hide the fact that it is absolutely callow -- riddled with vapid coming-of-age cliches expressed first and foremost by a rather painful voice-over and endless slo-motion music-video montages. Directed and written by Canadian filmmaker Michael Goldbach (co-writer of Don McKellar’s "Childstar"), the tedious and cloying picture reads and sounds like the diary of a deluded and guilel...
