    Weekend Preview: Critics Hating on 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters' and 'Movie 43'; Indie 'Supporting Characters' Best Bet

    Stars in duds is the theme of this weekend. "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters," starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, and "Movie 43," starring Emma Stone, Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet (among many others), both have atrocious Tomatometer scores...

    Review: 'The Taste Of Money' Is A Deliciously Diabolical Domestic Melodrama From South Korea

    Thanks to the recession and the growing divide between the very rich and the extremely poor, along with the volcanic if somewhat ineffectual Occupy movement, the inner lives of those in power have become even more fascinating and dastardly. In "The Taste of Money," the newest film from largely unsun...

    Sundance Review Roundup: 'Blue Caprice' an Eerie Thriller Exploring the 2002 Beltway Snipers

    Critics are raving about Sundance NEXT section entry "Blue Caprice," directed by Alexandre Moors and based on the 2002 sniper attacks in Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia.

    Review: 'Supporting Characters' Is A Middling Movie, But A Decent Would-Be Pilot Episode For A Show We Might Watch

    What fascinates about “Supporting Characters,” the new relationship comedy premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, is that its greatest strength also registers as its most notable weakness. This decidedly Noo Yawk tale of an editing team in New York City and their satellite friends would be at home...

    Sundance Review: 'In A World...' A Low-Key Charmer & Promising Directorial Debut For Lake Bell

    One of the worst things you could say about a comedy is usually that it has a wide appeal.

    Review: 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' Isn't Boring, But It Is Unrelentingly Stupid

    Do you want the good news first or the bad news? Let’s start with the good. Firstly, “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” is less than 90 minutes long. That’s good. Also, Gemma Arterton is really pretty and wears a lot of awesome leather pants and gloves and vests and things. Those are also good. The ti...

    Review: 'Movie 43' Strains For Laughs With Uninspired Collection Of Comedy Shorts

    What is there to say, analytically, about “Movie 43”? Not released in theaters as much as inexplicably materializing in front of our very eyes, “Movie 43” has no moral, no overarching story, and no point other than the opportunity for Hollywood stars to play silly for a short...
