    Review: 'Killing Season' Starring Robert De Niro & John Travolta

    The deadening inevitability of “Killing Season” is that, for all its bluster and violence, the picture’s going to end on a ponderous note it can’t quite deliver convincingly. This barebones time-killer from the ruthlessly frugal folks at Millennium Films announces its intentions from the title on, a...

    Michael B. Jordan in Taut, Flawed 'Fruitvale Station'

    Fruitvale Station is tense, galvanizing and a little disappointing -- an odd combination that is easily explained. The drama, which won both the arty Grand Jury Prize and the populist Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival, is brilliantly acted by Michael B. Jordan in the fact-based story ...

    The Rim Shot Heard 'Round the World

    I’ve been counting on savvy filmmaker Guillermo del Toro to give us something more than a "Transformers" clone, and my faith in him hasn’t been misplaced.

    Fruitvale Station

    If you know the true story that inspired this film you might not be eager to see it, but the tone of "Fruitvale Station" isn’t downbeat or bleak.

    Juvenile Delinquents AKA Grown Ups 2

    Just to be clear, the title of this summer sequel is meant to be ironic: these four lifelong friends may be middle-aged husbands and parents, but they’re really oversized kids.

    Review: Thomas Vinterberg's 'The Hunt' Starring Cannes Winner Mads Mikkelsen

    Like many directors who make a big splash with an early feature, Thomas Vinterberg did not have an easy time of it thereafter.

    Review: Horror Anthology Sequel 'V/H/S/ 2'

    Last year, the indie horror anthology "V/H/S" was released and promised to be chock full of truly in-your-face terror – these were fearless directors, given complete creative freedom, and squeezed together under a tight, blood-soaked package.
