    Review: Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Charming 'Don Jon' Starring Scarlett Johansson

    Jon Martello is the quintessential modern-day lothario. He and his friends objectify women, rate them on a scale of one to ten and cruise clubs for chicks that they can bed and discard. Jon, in particular, is exceptionally good at wooing the ladies with his muscles, slick-backed hair and cocky charm...

    Book Review: Fascinating & Enjoyable 'Very Naughty Boys: The Amazing True Story Of HandMade Films'

    Review: In Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Directorial Debut 'Don Jon,' Porn Addiction Is a Red Herring

    Review: 'Metallica: Through The Never' Is A Headbanger's Ball

    D, for the most part, is being publicly exposed for the costly gimmick we always knew it was. "Gravity" aside, the flagging technology already feels rote, and the movies released in the format, usually following a time-consuming retrofitting process that sees the original image given added dimension...

    REVIEW: "Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2"

    Charles Solomon says the original Cloudy didn't exactly cry out for sequel and that the animated sequel is "a regrettable mishmash of twitchy animation, underdeveloped story and overwrought designs". Read his full review here.
