    Rock Of Ages—movie review

    It’s easy to see how 'Rock of Ages' became a crowd-pleaser on Broadway, where audiences got caught up in the energy of 80s hit songs performed live. The film adaptation (credited, astonishingly, to three screenwriters, including the show’s creator Chris D’Arenzio) is a dreary collection of clichés a...

    LAFF 2012 Review: What 'LUV' Says About Manhood, or the Lack Thereof

    L.A. Film Fest Review: 'Neil Young Journeys' Is An Exhilarating & Emotional Ride With The Rock Star

    Neil Young is a salty dude. Forthcoming, irreverent, introspective, and witty, even as he approaches his mid-sixties, the musician has lost none of his rockability. The man is still writing new songs, for crying out loud, now nearly 50 years after the inception of Buffalo Springfield made him an int...

    White House Secrets Revealed In 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'

    So let’s get this straight: slavery in the U.S. lasted so long because vampires supported it. In fact, Jefferson Davis made a deal between the Confederacy and the undead. That explains a lot, including why Abraham Lincoln was so determined to obliterate vampires, even to the point of snea...

    Review: 'Mary Pickford: The Muse Of The Movies' An Adoring Look At America's Sweetheart

    What does it mean to be on the A-list? In addition to being a box office draw, which is a must, those within that rareified air can often call the shots creatively on their own movies, command a high salary and even develop their own projects. But while she's primarily remembered now as "Am...

    Review Roundup: 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' Only Half Succeeds in Marrying American History with Stylized Vampire Pulverizing

    Reviews are coming in for distinctively stylistic director Timur Bekmambetov's "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter." While the slo-mo-then-ramp-up action sequences are impressing, the story is lacking in coherency as it melds 3D bloodsuckers with a particularly pernicious moment in American history...

    LAFF 2012 Review - 'Middle Of Nowhere' (aka "Nothing But A Woman")

    Its star-studded, 800-seat West Coast premiere as a gala screening at the Los Angeles Film Festival last night, deserved a redit and repost of my review of the film after I saw it as the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.
