    IFFBoston Review: 'Terri' Follows An Odd Budding Bromance

    Azazel Jacobs has built a career on slow-moving portraits of everyday life. He first came to the indie scene’s attention with “Momma’s Man,” a film that wowed Sundance audiences in 2008. This year he’s back with a much more refined film called “Terri,” about an overweight, teenage outcast who finds ...

    Why On Earth Is Take That Going To Be On The Soundtrack For 'X-Men: First Class'?

    Sorry, Matthew Vaughn. We think you're great but dude, you have shit taste in music. While in pretty much every other department "X-Men: First Class" is looking like the classiest comic joint of the summer, that's all about to be gummed up by what is sure to be one of the oddest closing songs of a p...

    Clive Owen & Anil Kapoor Attached To Roger Donaldson's Financial Thriller 'Cities'

    Nearly three years after the fact, filmmakers are finally catching up to the giant bastards behind the collapse of the economy at the end of 2008 that dumped the rest of us in the shit. Last year saw both Oliver Stone's mediocre "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," and Charles Ferguson's Oscar-winning...

    Review, Something Borrowed: Ginnfer Goodwin, Kate Hudson Fight Over a Ken Doll

    “The Hamptons are like a zombie movie directed by Ralph Lauren.” Enjoy that line, because it’s about the only one that might make you laugh in the irredeemably lame romcom Something Borrowed. From the minute you see Ginnifer Goodwin wearing an unconvincing long brown wig, you have an inkling of just...

    Have You Ever Lied About Liking a Movie?

    I promised to raise this question a few weeks back, when everyone (including us) was linking to LOVEFILM's list of movies people lie about seeing. I assume there are more people who lie about liking movies than do about seeing them. And what better week to think about this than the 70th anniversary of "Citizen Kane"? Given that it's rated on so many lists as the greatest film of all time, I expect the pressure to agree is enormous. Maybe not as enormous as the pressure to feign excitement about a single terrorist mastermind's murder (or the pressure, now that people are trying to make it controversial, to not call it "murder"), but pretty tre...
