    Review: Tom Cruise Vehicle 'Oblivion' Is A Mostly Involving, Visually Spectacular Sci-Fi Epic

    Only a few years ago, big sci-fi action spectacles were confined pretty much to the summer months. But now, the season has crept out to the extent that it essentially lasts from the middle of February (see the release of "A Good Day To Die Hard" this year) to... pretty much the rest of the year, wit...

    Review: Malick Stumbles with 'To The Wonder'

    There are no dinosaurs in Terrence Malick's sixth feature, but there are bison, sea turtles, prairies, toxic sludge, sun-dappled water, more prairies, a conflicted priest (Javier Bardem) and enough pirouetting by Olga Kurylenko to make you imagine that she probably felt dizzy at the end of each day'...

    Review: '42' Admirably & Carefully Weaves Together The History Of Baseball & Civil Rights

    Destiny swings a big stick in Brian Helgeland's "42." It underlines every pivotal moment of Jackie Robinson's career captured in the two hour film, often working as baggage keeping the film earthbound, at times making it unnecessarily weighty. It's also probably the major reason why a number of main...

    Black Comedy Gem, 'It's A Disaster'

    An offbeat little gem of a black-comedy, It's a Disaster is the kind of film that plays much better than it sounds like it should. It's another end-of-the-world (maybe) ensemble piece, but the deft writing and directing by Todd Berger and the straight-faced comic acting by America Ferrera, David ...

    Review: Brandon Does David Proud, 'Antiviral' A Classic Cronenberg Freak Fest

    There is no doubt that no matter what Brandon Cronenberg decided to make as his first movie, the shadow of his father would loom large. So whether it just runs in the family, or if it was a calculated decision to do something audiences would expect from the Cronenberg mantle, full credit to Brandon ...

    DVD/VOD Review - Acclaimed South African Drama 'Life, Above All'

    It would be easy to watch Life, Above All and then walk away with a smug sense of distance from the tyranny of an all consuming disease slowly but surely eating away at a community. That the community is in South Africa might make it easier for many to distance themselves further, but a very univers...

    DVD/VOD Review - 'Africa United' Is Likable, Although A Bit Heavy-Handed

    A children’s (or family) film with a largely African cast is rare. African children being depicted as anything other than victims of brutal, famine and poverty stricken environments they’ve been born into are almost non existent. So seeing an Africa United poster splashed on the side of a London dou...
