    Critical Consensus: Robert Koehler and Michael Phillips Let Loose on the Best and Worst of Cannes 2012

    "I'm in the minority about "Beasts of the Southern Wild." It's flashy and imaginative; the filmmaker's got real skill, but I found that movie's technique awfully pushy."

    Snow White and the Huntsman—movie review

    Sometimes, while I’m watching a bad movie, one burning question arises: “What were they thinking?” That’s what I asked myself while suffering through 'Snow White and the Huntsman', a putrid, and seemingly endless, retelling of the famous fairy tale. Grim and gruesome, it’s a soul-sucking two-hour-pl...

    Two With Grant by Hawks: 'His Girl Friday' & 'Monkey Business'

    If you miss Cary Grant as much as I do——and I mean not only the movie star, the actor, the man, but also the kind of civilized style and ebullient, urbane and witty persona the name calls to mind——then here are two good opportunities (out of many more) to see the origina...

    Review & Round-Up: 'Snow White and The Huntsman' Wants To Be Everything It's Not

    "Snow White and the Huntsman" made a brave choice with first-time feature director Rupert Sanders, and the result is a muddled riff that wants to be "Lord of the Rings," "Braveheart," Robin Hood," "Willow" and "Alice in Wonderland" all at once. Universal beat the fairytale-revival ‪piñata‬ and this ...

    Review: 'Piranha 3DD' Dutifully Fails To Be In On The Joke

    If you're gonna go for it, go for it. That was the philosophy Alexandre Aja pursued for the bleakly funny "Piranha 3D," an orgy of death and dismemberment that indulged in the hedonism of spring break before letting loose swarms of genetically-superior fish that were decidedly playing for keeps. As ...

    Hollywood’s First 3-D Revolution

    As 3-D continues to amuse, bemuse, frustrate, and bilk the moviegoing public, little attention is paid to the sweeping events that dominated the year 1953, when the medium revolutionized Hollywood for a tantalizingly brief period of time. There is so much misinformation about the first great wave of...

    Review: ‘Hide Away’ Has A Great Performance By Josh Lucas Nearly Suffocated By A Truly Lousy Movie

    John Lucas is one of those actors who, mathematically at least, ought to be a movie star. He’s been a part of several high profile projects that should have launched him into the starry stratosphere (he was the romantic lead in Reese Witherspoon’s hit “Sweet Home Alabama;” a heavy in Ang Lee’s “Hulk...

    Review: 'Snow White & the Huntsman' Is A Beautiful Slog

    2012 has already delivered one big-budget movie based on the classic Grimm Brothers' fairy tale "Snow White." Earlier this spring arrived Tarsem's fizzy, Bollywood-ish "Mirror Mirror," which saw Julia Roberts vamping it up as the evil queen, surrounded by the most cheesily phony-looking sets this si...

    Review: Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' Is A Gorgeous, Fascinating Muddle Of Ideas That Can't Stick The Landing

    Ambition is a rare thing in movies these days, especially when it comes to summer blockbuster fare. There might be ambitions to blow up bigger things, or include more bad guys, or feature more stars, but in terms of real ambition -- telling big stories, about big subjects, on a huge canvas -- only a...
