    "A half-hour into the film, and it feels like the eighth day of jury duty."

    'R.I.P.D.' Review: Not as Bad as the Buzz, But Still Loud and Clunky

    "R.I.P.D." isn’t nearly as bad as its near-deafening advance buzz indicated -- though, really, what movie could be? -- but that doesn’t mean the laughs and gasps are satisfyingly abundant in this loud and clunky sci-fi fantasy action-comedy.

    Review: Why Woody Allen's 'Blue Jasmine,' Starring Cate Blanchett, Is His Most Significant Movie In Years

    Woody Allen has achieved a fusion of two sensibilities that resembles one mode of storytelling but plays like a different one altogether.

    Review: Andrew Bujalski's 'Computer Chess'

    The first thought upon sitting down for “Computer Chess” might be one of snobby resistance. Director Andrew Bujalski has been credited as the godfather of mumblecore, a movement that has produced a number of interesting pictures but one that still invites scorn for supposedly lowering the discourse ...

    Here Are the New Indies (Hopefully) Playing In a Theater Near You: 'Only God Forgives,' 'Girl Most Likely,' 'Blackfish' and More

    Kristen Wiig In 'Girl Most Likely' And Jeff Garlin In 'Dealin' With Idiots' Make For Weird Combo Of New Indie Comedies

    It's hard to make people laugh, so no wonder few filmmakers try. While plenty of new releases contain elements of humor in their DNA, from Andrew Bujalski's irreverent "Computer Chess" to Noah Baumbach's sardonic "Frances Ha," the last few months have been weak on new comedies. Even studios have ent...

    Review: 'R.I.P.D.' Starring Ryan Reynolds & Jeff Bridges

    One day a studio will fund a $100 million plus tentpole, screen the finished version, and flat-out deem it un-releasable, unwatchable and unmarketable. Until then, we only have reminders that that day is coming, in the form of misguided boondoggles like “R.I.P.D.,” a picture that Universal is releas...

    Review: 'Broken' Starring Tim Roth & Cillian Murphy

    There is a difference between a kitchen sink drama and a drama that includes everything but the kitchen sink, and unfortunately for "Broken," it's more of the latter than the former. Marking the feature debut by theatre director Rufus Norris and with Tim Roth, Cillian Murphy and Rory Kinnear among t...
