    dvd review: Back To The 1950s

    When I was growing up in the 1950s and 60s, the last thing I wanted to see was a “serious” movie. I eagerly awaited each new Jerry Lewis comedy and Walt Disney release, and when the newly-reconstituted Three Stooges started making feature films I was first in line to see them. I ...

    REVIEW | "The Perfect Host" is Perfectly Predictable

In the years following "The Usual Suspects," few movies have successfully altered the relationships between various main characters in a way that's both dramatically satisfying and unexpected. Rare exc...
