    Review: 'Bad Milo!' Starring Ken Marino & Gillian Jacobs A Ridiculous But Respectful Horror Comedy

    Look, you’re just going to have to come to terms with the fact that “Bad Milo!” is about a man who has a monster that grows out of his ass and kills people. If you’re not willing to get onboard with that premise, this isn’t a movie that’s going to sway your initial feelings. And that’s okay: movies ...

    Review: Online Gambling World Thriller 'Runner Runner' Starring Ben Affleck & Justin Timberlake

    While the conversation around the career rebound of Matthew McConaughey will continue this fall with "Dallas Buyers Club," many forget that it was 2011's "The Lincoln Lawyer" that gave the actor the first spring in his comeback step. On paper, it was a rather routine procedural, but it was elevated ...

    Review: JFK Drama 'Parkland' Starring Zac Efron, Paul Giamatti & More Feels Like A Cheap Cash-In

    Ever since "PT 109," which detailed his WWII war record and was released while he was still in office, President John F. Kennedy has been catnip to Hollywood. After all, he was good looking, charismatic, had a dark secret life of womanising, among other things, and of course, was assassinated three ...

And it’s one such moment that Matt Porterfield’s Sundance-approved third feature, “I Used to be Darker,” dea...

    Review: ‘All Is Bright’ Starring Paul Rudd & Paul Giamatti Is A Mostly Joyless Misfire

    Director Phil Morrison hasn't made a film since his exceptional debut indie, "Junebug," which launched Amy Adams in 2005. Brimming with life, even without the Oscar-nominated and very-worthy firecracker Adams performance, the movie is flush with an idiosyncratic humanity and especially complex and u...

    Review: 'A.C.O.D.' Starring Adam Scott, Amy Poehler, Richard Jenkins & Catherine O'Hara

    Comedy can succeed based on either its relatability or sheer absurdity, and “A.C.O.D.” favors the former approach, while not entirely forgoing the latter. Within its first few moments, this movie informs us that 54% of people are adult children of divorce, or A.C.O.D. Statistically, you’re likely to...
