    Critic's Notebook: Why 'Johnny Guitar,' Now On Blu-ray, Deserves a Second Look

    Most 50's psycho-westerns look at the genre, its heroes and American frontier history they inhabit through a glass darkened by the realities of WWII. "Johnny Guitar" views the western through a Jungian kaleidoscope.

    Celeste and Jesse Forever—movie review

    Since Hollywood studios seem incapable of crafting a credible—let alone charming—romantic comedy, it remains for someone in the indie world to portray a believable couple an audience can care about.

    Weekend Preview: 'Total Recall' a Noisy, Shallow, Costly Misfire

    For a reported budget of $200 million, you'd think that if nothing else "Total Recall" would be visually dazzling. Sadly, Len Wiseman's futuristic universe lacks believable depth and texture, and the actors are stuck with a truly uninspired script. A zero-gravity sequence is an exception to the othe...

    Review: 'Assassin's Bullet' Is A Spectacularly Inept Action Movie

    Even by the admittedly low standards of a basically direct-to-video, shot-in-Bulgaria action thriller starring Christian Slater and Donald Sutherland as a pair of weathered old spies, "Assassin's Bullet" is a fucking chore.

    Review: 'Total Recall' A Derivative, Dim & Substance-Free Remake

    A pastiche of almost too many movies to count as a remake of just one, “Total Recall” is mindless, middling fare that fails to utilize – much less expand – the provocative concepts at the core of its iconic 1990 predecessor. Len Wiseman, whose “Die Hard” sequel effectively betrayed every one of the ...
