    REVIEW | How "Life in a Day " Reflects User-Generated Expression

    When YouTube launched six years ago, it opened the door to a new era of self-expression. It also became the de facto archive for adorable cats and newsroom goofs, among countless other viral memes now accepted as commonplace. (Just last week, an enthusiastic man made a fortune writing messages on hi...

    REVIEW | "The Devil's Double" Portrays Uday Hussein as Evil, But Otherwise Fails

    It's hard to believe that "The Devil's Double" doesn't intend to be a put-on. Despite a real-life basis of its plot, Lee Tamahori's fierce depiction of hedonistic Saddaam Hussein spawn Uday Hussein relegates the character to a farcical cartoon. Looking like a macabre Groucho Marx, Dominic Cooper por...

    Captain America: The First Avenger

    I’m a bit late coming to this film—blame Comic-Con—but having heard good buzz I went to see it this morning with high hopes. For starters, a comic book story set during World War Two offers a perfect opportunity to banish irony, make use of Nazis as bad guys, and cheer on a...

    REVIEW | "Crazy, Stupid, Love." Is Inspired, But Suffers From a Very Specific Hollywood Problem

    Years after gaining fame for writing the modern subversive holiday classic "Bad Santa," Hollywood has finally made room for John Requa and Glenn Ficarra. Having directed the wry gay comedy "I Love You, Phillip Morris" last year, Requa and Ficarra have brought their unique combination of gleeful vulg...

    REVIEW | "Point Blank" Has Plenty of Speed, But Could Use a Few Ideas

    Every action movie requires momentum and Fred Cavayé's "Point Blank" has plenty to spare.
