    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.

    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 – ...

    Review - Kenya-Set 'Wavumba' Is A Dreamy Homage To The Filmmaker's Youth

    A film that's maybe more about mood and setting than narrative, Wavumba, from Dutch filmmaker Jeroen van Velzen, is a beautiful homage to a place and time - memories of the filmmaker's childhood, spent in coastal Kenya, steeped in mysticism, and driven by the tale of a single fisherman, Mohamme...
