    DVD/VOD Review - Stephen Lloyd Jackson's Psychodrama 'David is Dying'

    When I think of a character being diagnosed with a terminal illness in a movie, especially HIV/AIDS, I think of sorrow. I expect to see the illness take center stage, to spend the rest of the film rooting for the victim to overcome whatever physical and personal obstacles lie ahead, and to weep...

    Is 'The To Do List' The Best American Sex Comedy Since 'American Pie'?

    American movies showcase death and destruction as much as ever, but it's no easy task to find a well-scripted potty mouth. The raunchy antics of horny teens enjoyed a heyday in the early eighties with the likes of "Porky's" and "Revenge of the Nerds," movies that tapped into the joy of young people ...

    The Wolverine

    Ho-hum. That sums up my reaction to this competently-made but uninspired action movie about the character last seen on his own in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine."

    Blue Jasmine

    I’ve often disparaged films for denying us a character we can root for, but every rule has its exceptions, and if there’s anyone who can break the rules and get away with it, it’s Woody Allen.

    Review: Brit Heist Flick 'Wasteland' Starring Luke Treadaway

    Every six months or so it seems the British film industry cranks out another modestly budgeted crime flick. Usually identified by a cast of recognizable but not quite famous faces, a desaturated color scheme, working class setting and familiar plot machinations, these are comfort food for genre fans...

    Review: Found Footage Horror ‘Frankenstein’s Army’

    What can be written about “Frankenstein’s Army”? Don’t see it. You may say, "But it looks so interesting with its WWII-era steam-punk and maybe it’s so bad that it’s good." Just don’t. It may scream, “Come see me!” to horror and genre fans, but please don’t or if you must, at least make sure you hav...

    DVD Review: 1986 Hip-Hop Doc 'Big Fun In The Big Town' (Available For 1st Time In 25 Years)

    New York, 1986: a city of big dreams and equally big problems. Like New York itself, hip-hop music encompassed both of these human conditions. But hip-hop and its cultural birthplace shared other important characteristics, too: the desire to always be original, a hustle-to-survive ambition, and – ...
