    Review: 'Crime After Crime' Is A Haunting Portrait Of A Domestic Violence Victim Behind Bars

    So, um guys, the OWN Documentary Club is kicking ass in its film selections. We know OWN is the channel your mom watches, but the documentaries it features are excellent films that have received festival runs, critical acclaim, and can't be seen on a large national stage anywhere else. It’s a great outlet for those documentary films that contain years of work by the filmmakers and don’t see the kind of distribution they deserve. The access alone is one reason why the OWN Documentary Club is worth the while-- any distribution for documentaries is needed-- but also because they’ve sported some home run choices in their selections.

    Point-Counter-Point Review: 'A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas' A Funny 3D Blast Or A Lazy Gimmick?

    The unlikely third chapter in a highly unlikely franchise, "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas," sees our favorite multi-culti stoner duo of Harold (John Cho) and Kumar (Kal Penn) taking on the merry yuletide spirit as only they could. And in a weird way, it makes perfect sense to pair the boys with Christmas, since for all their bad-ass, pan-Asian Cheech and Chong vibe, the 'Harold & Kumar' movies (2004's "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle" and 2008's "Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay") have largely been sweet fables about the power of friendship and not the outrageous shock-fests they masquerade as. The third film is even sweeter, ...
