    Blue Jasmine

    I’ve often disparaged films for denying us a character we can root for, but every rule has its exceptions, and if there’s anyone who can break the rules and get away with it, it’s Woody Allen.

    Review: Brit Heist Flick 'Wasteland' Starring Luke Treadaway

    Every six months or so it seems the British film industry cranks out another modestly budgeted crime flick.

    Review: Found Footage Horror ‘Frankenstein’s Army’

    Did The Lone Ranger Kill the Western?

    The Lone Ranger's box office failure once again prompts concern that the Western is dead. But it lives on in other forms, and those forms say as much about history as the traditional Western once did.
