    Review: Andrew Bujalski's 'Computer Chess'

    The first thought upon sitting down for “Computer Chess” might be one of snobby resistance. Director Andrew Bujalski has been credited as the godfather of mumblecore, a movement that has produced a number of interesting pictures but one that still invites scorn for supposedly lowering the discourse ...

    Here Are the New Indies (Hopefully) Playing In a Theater Near You: 'Only God Forgives,' 'Girl Most Likely,' 'Blackfish' and More

    While the low-fi creeper "The Conjuring" is poised to do battle with the big-budgeted hopeful franchise starter "R.I.P.D." at the domestic box office, those two competing studio efforts aren't the only films opening this week that want your hard earned money. Below, find a list of every indie openin...

    Kristen Wiig In 'Girl Most Likely' And Jeff Garlin In 'Dealin' With Idiots' Make For Weird Combo Of New Indie Comedies

    It's hard to make people laugh, so no wonder few filmmakers try. While plenty of new releases contain elements of humor in their DNA, from Andrew Bujalski's irreverent "Computer Chess" to Noah Baumbach's sardonic "Frances Ha," the last few months have been weak on new comedies. Even studios have ent...

    Review: 'R.I.P.D.' Starring Ryan Reynolds & Jeff Bridges

    One day a studio will fund a $100 million plus tentpole, screen the finished version, and flat-out deem it un-releasable, unwatchable and unmarketable. Until then, we only have reminders that that day is coming, in the form of misguided boondoggles like “R.I.P.D.,” a picture that Universal is releas...

    Red 2

    I yearn for a summer movie season without sequels. I know, call me a dreamer, but watching movies like "Red 2" is positively dispiriting.

    Only God Forgives

    Some people value style over content; I prefer a melding of the two, which is why I found Nicolas Winding Refn’s "Drive" so irritating and pretentious.

    Review: 'Broken' Starring Tim Roth & Cillian Murphy

    There is a difference between a kitchen sink drama and a drama that includes everything but the kitchen sink, and unfortunately for "Broken," it's more of the latter than the former. Marking the feature debut by theatre director Rufus Norris and with Tim Roth, Cillian Murphy and Rory Kinnear among t...

    Review: 'Tremors' Meets 'The Guard' In Horror-Comedy 'Grabbers'

    Perfect fodder for a late-night audience, UK/Irish co-production "Grabbers," directed by Jon Wright, is a fun ride, and while it doesn't reinvent the "Tremors" and "Slither" modern-b-movie wheel, it adds a few neat touches to that formula. It's a shame it ultimately favours repetition over originali...

    Review: Microbudget Indie 'By Way of Home' Punches Above Its Weight (TRAILER)

    Reunited after a two-year estrangement, childhood friends Brooke and Morgan spend the early stages of "By Way of Home" catching up. The former, laid off and living with her parents, describes this state of affairs with a gentle euphemism ("the whole family's home"), but her delivery carries the unmi...
