    Boston Independent Review: 'Fight Church' Takes You Inside The Octagon

    "Jesus never tapped out" is a phrase you'll hear a few times in the documentary "Fight Church," and it's confirmation that Christianity has seeped into the mainstream—and vice versa. From arena-sized places of worship to faith-based box office hits to even modest churches boasting sound and light sh...

    Review: ‘5 To 7’ Starring Anton Yelchin, Bérénice Marlohe & Olivia Thirlby

    "Some of the best writing in New York won't be found in books or movies or plays… but on the benches of Central Park," the irritatingly enunciated, overly-heartfelt voiceover in “5 To 7” intones alongside some pleasantly inoffensive cello bowing. Sigh… the protagonist is referring to the love-letter...

    Review: Luc Besson's 'Brick Mansions' Starring Paul Walker, David Belle And RZA

    In the years since he gave up his position as an up-and-coming pop art visionary, Luc Besson has been supervising such down-and-dirty thrillers as the "Taken" films and this year's "3 Days to Kill." But since "Brick Mansions" is one of Paul Walker’s final screen performances, the movie has taken on ...

    Tribeca Review: 'Dior And I' Brings World Of Haute Couture Down To Earth

    You know all those red carpet gala events where celebrities wear clothes that cost more than the average mortgage, and entertainment reporters ask them “...and who are you wearing!?” Other than those among us who are specifically interested in the world of fashion, it's the question that signals our...

    "The Other Woman" Flunks the Bechdel Test, and Many Others Besides

    The fact that the three female leads in this comedy of revenge don't talk once in its 109 minutes about anything other than a man is only the beginning of how bad it is.

    'Alphaville': Why This Piece of 60s Pulp Fiction is Must-See Jean-Luc Godard (CLIP)

    My favorite Jean-Luc Godard film, the glorious 1965 black-and-white surreal sci-fi noir "Alphaville," starring Eddie Constantine, Godard's wife Anna Karina and Paris at night, has gotten a snazzy digital restoration and new subtitles. It opens for a week at the Nuart Friday.

    The Other Woman

    I don’t demand a great deal from a glossy Hollywood comedy, but it would be nice to find a smarter, more original piece of work than this in the year 2014.

    Review: Sci-Fi 'The Machine' Is A Junky Piece Of Escapism

    Even though science fiction allows for the widest possibility of storytelling, it often seems like there are really only three or four sci-fi stories, and they stopped creating them after the eighties.

    Tribeca Review: 'Intramural' Starring Jake Lacy, Kate McKinnon, Beck Bennett And Nikki Reed

    There's dumb, there's dumber, and then there's “Intramural," a good-time jerkoff fest that should appeal primarily to the viral video crowd. Which isn't exactly a slam, per se: there are a number of hearty laughs in this paperweight comedy, which tries in vain to cram a joke per-minute into its runt...
