    film review: How To Train Your Dragon

    If you want to see truly effective, creative use of 3-D, run to the nearest theater playing this movie. The folks at DreamWorks Animation know what they’re doing in this arena, and their films are designed with 3-D in mind from the very start; it isn’t an afterthought, and I for one can tell the difference.

    There are those who claim that Punch-Drunk Love begs to be read as a deconstruction of Adam Sandler’s screen persona. While they might be right, it doesn't make Paul Thomas Anderson's dull slab of powder-blue whimsy any more bearable. So when I say that Noah Baumbach's latest film, Greenberg, feels like a culmination of sorts for its star, Ben Stiller, that's not in and of itself a ringing endorsement, although it’s certainly superior to the writer-director’s previous Margot at the Wedding. In that film, another Frat Pack satellite—Jack Black—was asked to show depths beyond his famously satyric screen persona.
