    In Theaters: 'Green Lantern' Takes On 'Popper's Penguins'

    Hello darlings. Please be patient with me today. I have decided to take "Green Lantern" as a personal affront to my being a grown ass woman with a need for grown ass movies. I just can't anymore with this childishness! Adolescent boys are ruling the world, and it's never more apparent than when examining the steaming piles of CGI comic book hash we get served up every summer. And you know, I'll take an "X-Men: First Class" or a "Captain America." At least these enhanced beings are located in a world that is rooted in some kind of reality with real stories and real problems (Nazis!). Even just reading our review of "Green Lantern" confused me ...

    Will Keira Knightley's Lengthy Neurotic Monologue Steal The Show In 'A Dangerous Method'?

    Well, don't take place too much emphasis on it just yet -- this is based on one person's observation from an early screening -- but that said it's an intriguing bit of info that is certainly worth noting and paying attention to.

    movie review: Green Lantern

    It isn’t innovative, it isn’t deep, the characters aren’t particularly well-developed, but I still had a good time watching Green Lantern. It’s hard to dislike a movie that has shortcomings and still provides an enjoyable viewing experience. I even liked its use of 3-D, ...

    movie review: City Of Life And Death

    Chinese filmmaker Chuan Lu has tackled a vast and ambitious subject in City of Life and Death. I knew very little about the siege on Nanjing (or Nanking, as Westerners have long referred to it) in 1937; I feel as if I understand it now, in all of its grim reality. A documentary might provide...

    Guest Post: Gavin Wiesen "Coming-Of-Age Movies Never Die!"

    One of things we love about films is how they transport us a different time and place. Perhaps nothing has such a strong hold on our memories as our first steps towards adulthood. For me that period is fully equated with my visits and eventual move to NYC. When I produced The Ice Storm it was a daily trip back to my most awkward moments. I return there when ever I enter the canon of NYC Coming-Of-Age tales; they are truly a genre on their own. For a filmmaker to walk into this community, requires great courage and knowledge, ambition and research. I was happily reassured viewing Gavin Wiesen's THE ART OF GETTING BY, for it was clear tha...
