    The Three Stooges—movie review

    First, the good news: this is a heartfelt homage to The Three Stooges of yore, and its leading actors do a remarkable job of channeling Moe, Larry and Curly.

    Most discerning moviegoers flinch when greeted with the prospect of a "Christian" film. Religion and mainstream cinema do not make comfortable bedfellows, as many films in this subgenre fit the very definition of "preaching to the choir," concerned not with challenging viewers as much as pandering t...

    Review: 'How To Grow A Band' A Decent Portrait Of Musician Chris Thile And Punch Brothers

    Subject Chris Thile lets us in on a little Irish saying, told to him by his ex-father-in-law: “Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.” Should we expect that the following documentary will be a dubious account of progressive bluegrass band Punch Brothers? It’s a peculiar way to start thi...

    Review: 'The Three Stooges' A Limp Homage To A Legendary Comedy Trio

    There doesn't seem to be a single pressing reason for the Farrelly Brothers to have made a Three Stooges-less movie titled "The Three Stooges." Bobby and Peter Farrelly's love of the Stooges is well-known, but they should have left well enough alone after "Dumb and Dumber,&quo...

    Review - Haitian Djinn Carrénard's Guerrilla Triptych "Donoma" Is A Delightful Discovery

    Aaaaah...! There are some films that draw you in from the first frame. The type of film where you sit still, rapt, in no rush for a snack break not out of fear of missing something but fear of leaving the world you've been pulled into, one you dare not leave.
