    Review: 'No One Lives' A Horrifyingly Dull Serial Killer Thriller

    Well, at the very least, "No One Lives" actually delivers on its title, however, it also tells you exactly what will happen in an already rote, routine and predictable movie. It's an R-rated horror flick that -- with a few obvious, quick cuts -- could easily be PG-13, perhaps indicating no one reall...

    The Great Gatsby

    Frankly, I was dreading Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of "The Great Gatsby," but I wouldn’t have anticipated that this master of gaudy excess had a genuine desire to do justice to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel.

    Stories We Tell

    I have a soft spot for Sarah Polley, as I’ve watched her grow up onscreen; my daughter and I used to watch her on TV as "Ramona" when she was 9 years old.

    Peeples

    Tyler Perry has become a brand name, as much as Disney or Marvel, over the last decade. As a producer with considerable clout, he’s enabled screenwriter Tina Gordon Chism to make her directorial debut...

    Review: Two Sharp Performances Stranded By Limp Satire In 'And Now A Word From Our Sponsor'

    There’s a nugget of a great satire within Zack Bernbaum’s “And Now A Word From Our Sponsor,” which begins with the discovery of missing advertising wizard Adan Kundle (Bruce Greenwood). A year has passed since the eccentric head of Kundle Advertising walked out of his office and disappeared, found p...

    Review: 'Venus And Serena' Offers an Intimate, Inspiring Look At The Williams Sisters

    Though it focuses primarily on the Willams’ career and personal lives in 2011, the documentary “Venus and Serena” covers their entire lives, beginning even before the elder Venus was born. Their father Richard Williams wrote an extensive plan for his daughters' success in tennis before Venus entered...

    Review: Ben Wheatley's 'Sightseers' - Or 'Natural Born Campers' - Is A Black-Comedy Holiday Hoot

    After "Down Terrace" and "Kill List," midnight-movie manqués and buffs in the know were wondering what director Ben Wheatley would do next; the answer is, apparently, make you laugh until you sound like a hole in the side of an airplane. "Sightseers," starring and written by Steve Oram and Alice Low...

    Review: Uwe Boll Cross-Breeds 'Taxi Driver' With The Occupy Movement In Tone-Deaf 'Assault On Wall Street'

    It’s time to stop treating Uwe Boll like some once-in-a-lifetime nightmare behind the camera, and to start acknowledging that he’s just another substandard genre filmmaker. He’s Lucio Fulci without the aesthetics and kinky fetishes, Takashi Miike without the profane poetry, Roger Corman without the ...

    Review: Race And Class Issues Clash With Lowbrow Comedy In 'Peeples'

    You’d be forgiven if you expected Tyler Perry to influence a large chunk of “Peeples,” the latest film to carry his name like a neon sign promising broad comedy and aggressive but dubious morality. Even the beginning seems to hum with the predictable rhythms of Perry’s multi-movie empire, with a dar...

    DVD Review: 'The Soloist' (Jamie Foxx As Schizophrenic Cello Prodigy)

    Upon initially hearing about The Soloist, when it first was released, I remember groaning at the thought of what I imagined would be yet another studio film infected with the media-old "Magical Negro" virus - the male idiot savant of African descent, who naturally comes fully equipped with his arsen...
