    Review: Neil Labute-Written ‘Some Girl(s)’ Starring Adam Brody, An Acerbic Yet Toothless Satirical Dramedy

    For the sake of argument, let’s agree that the Neil LaBute narrative unfolds like this: the provocative playwright turned filmmaker stormed the indie world in 1997 with his disturbing, brusque and scathing critique of the male psyche “In The Company of Men.” LaBute's controversial, piquant, sometime...

    Review: 'Redemption' Starring Jason Statham

    In recent years Jason Statham, with his stocky frame, bald head and gravelly voice that makes him sound like he’s always gnawing on broken glass, has become a kind of one-man wrecking crew, and not just because of his appearance in the “Crank,” “Transporter” and “Expendables” franchises. A rough, se...

    The Heat - Written by Katie Dippold

    Yesterday, I wrote a piece that gave my argument about why you need to go and see The Heat this weekend. What I didn't share since I was embargoed was the fact that I really liked the movie and it made me laugh so hard, harder than I have done in a long, long time.

    The Heat

    I feared that we might have seen all the funniest bits of "The Heat" in its trailer; fortunately, I was wrong. The preview only offers a glimpse of what both Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy have to offer in this rowdy, raunchy buddy-cop comedy.

    I'm So Excited!

It's 1989 and she believes that her generation is ready to handle transsexuality -- and perhaps they are -- but as both Fred and Laure...

    L.A. Film Fest Review: 'Levitated Mass' Tells the Story Of A Rock Star Meeting The Masses

    The new documentary from Doug Pray, "Levitated Mass," is a story about an artist, a museum, a city, a piece of art. But what it's really about is a rock. A rock that's a star. Quite possibly one of the most famous rocks in the world, Levitated Mass, the massive monolithic land sculpture by land arti...
