    REVIEW: Disney's "Planes"

    The characters and plot in Planes are so familiar, it feels like Disney went directly to Planes 2 or 3, without bothering to pause at a first movie. It’s yet another underdog-coming-from-behind story with elements of Cars, Cars 2, Despicable Me and Turbo.

    Review: David Gordon Green's 'Prince Avalanche' Starring Emile Hirsch & Paul Rudd

    It's the summer of 1988 and a violent wildfire has swept through Texas, destroying 43,000 acres and some 16,000 homes. In the wake of this horrific devastation -- a freak of nature that no experts can explain -- two highway road crew workers spend the season in isolation, painting and repairing the ...

    Review: Documentary 'Zipper: Coney Island's Last Wild Ride'
