    Review: Visceral 'The Dark Knight Rises' Is A Cinematic, Cultural & Personal Triumph

She's one of those characters that when you see her first on screen you cringe -- she wears complete...

    Ice Age: Continental Drift—movie review

    I was charmed, and pleasantly surprised, when I saw 'Ice Age' a decade ago.

    Review: Michael Winterbottom's 'Trishna' Is Picturesque, But Entirely Lacking In Passion

    Over his career, Michael Winterbottom has hopped frequently from genre to genre, from subject matter to subject matter, rarely covering the same territory twice.

    Comic-Con '12 Review: 'Dredd' A Visually Strong, Engaging But Ultimately Empty Cinematic Experience

    Remakes and reboots always seem to demand comparisons to their predecessors, but “Dredd” evokes a slightly different relationship: What Zack Snyder’s “Dawn of the Dead” is to George Romero’s original, Pete Travis’ film is to, no, not Danny Cannon’s 1995 film “Judge Dredd,” but Paul Verhoeven’s “Robo...
