    Review: 'The Last Stand' Heralds The Return Of Arnold Schwarzenegger In A Big, Brash & Ultimately Overlong Slog

    Arnold Schwarzenegger casts a giant shadow in his first full-fledged return to the big screen, and Korean auteur Kim Jee-woon kowtows in turn, churning out the stylishly anonymous "The Last Stand," a hopefully-timeless throwback to the iron-jawed heroes of Arnie's yesteryear. The film that ends up o...

    Review: Silly Horror Fairy Tale 'Mama' Is Another Misfire For The Guillermo Del Toro Presents Brand

    The opening scrawl for “Mama” certainly sets the stage for another familiar horror tale in the Guillermo del Toro mold. Text is scribbled over black, declaring the story happened “once upon a time…” and then the film starts, and it’s pretty much all downhill from there. Riddled with clunky expositio...

    Review: 'Broken City' Is A Political Corruption Thriller That Never Quite Comes Together

    A lot of what's broken about "Broken City" -- the new political thriller by Allen Hughes, who with his brother Albert directed the highly influential inner-city dramas "Menace II Society" and "Dead Presidents" before veering off into more comic book-y territory with historical thriller "From Hell" a...

    Review: 'Delta Boys' Is A Bold, Gripping Documentary About The Oil Battles Of Nigeria

    Andrew Berends’ gripping new documentary “Delta Boys” does something undeniably important: it puts human voices and faces behind the terms and datelines we run into almost every week in newspapers, on websites, and on cable new channel crawls.
