    Premium Rush—movie review

    I don’t know how a film this entertaining and expertly-made can show up the last week of summer, but I’m not complaining. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, whose fine work in indie films like 'The Lookout' went ignored by most moviegoers, has finally achieved stardom, and this flashy tale of a bicycle messenger...

    Hit & Run—movie review

    Dax Shepard has modeled his new film 'Hit & Run'—which he wrote, co-directed, and stars in—after his youthful favorite, 'Smokey and the Bandit'. Like Burt Reynolds, he persuaded a bunch of his friends to join him in making a lighthearted car-chase movie with elements of comedy and romance.

    Robot & Frank—movie review

    Frank Langella’s presence would be enough to pique my interest in any film. 'Robot & Frank' offers him a modest starring vehicle with a science-fiction spin, and the result is one of the most enjoyable indie films of the year.

    Review: 'Sleepwalk With Me' Observes The Life Of A Comedian & Commitmentphobe

    Yes, everything that follows is true, our narrator assures us from the start after asking everyone to go ahead and turn off their cell phones. The validity of it all has been questioned before, and he simply wants to cut our skepticism off at the pass. However, since this is Mike Birbiglia playing a...

    'The Big Chill' Speaks French in 'Little White Lies' (Review)

    In the raucous club scene that opens "Little White Lies," the actor playing the obnoxious, drug-snorting lech named Ludo looks so familiar you might find yourself thinking, “Who’s that loud guy?” That guy is Jean Dujardin from "The Artist," so at least in t...

    Review: 'Premium Rush' Sputters To The Finish Line

    In an age where green screen is over-utilized, and costs are managed by shooting in the Midwest, Canada, or even Eastern Europe, there’s something classy and maybe even downright quaint about a film entirely set on the streets of New York City. Permit restrictions have long ended the days of most lo...

    Review: Soccer & Street Life Collide In Sincere But Overwrought 'Hermano'

    They say soccer (or football as it's known everywhere except in the United States) is the world's game and it's easy to see why. With the only equipment necessary being a ball and a space to play on, it remains one of the most accessible sports across the globe, giving hope to anyone of any class, c...

    Review: 'Hit And Run' Would Be A Fun Action Comedy If It Weren't For All That Comedy

    The fact that Charlie Bronson is the name of Dax Shepherd’s protagonist in the Shepherd-co-directed, Shepherd-written and Shepherd-starring “Hit and Run” tells you everything you need to know about the film. Particularly considering the film’s Bronson, a former getaway driver in deep trouble with a ...
