Paul Feig’s new cop comedy, a spiritual follow-up to his brassy “Bridesmaids,” seems heavily indebted to pretty much every cop comedy you’ve ever seen, Feig dutifully playing the hits ...

    'A Band Called Death' Vs. 'Searching For Sugar Man': Are the Comparisons Apt?

    Review: 'A Band Called Death' Rewrites Punk History And Tells An Emotional Story Of Faith And Family

    Nope, not The Ramones, The Clash or the Sex Pistols. Not even Bad Brains. The true punk pioneers were a band called Death, straight out of Motor City, Detroit, and you’ve probably never heard of them until now. Thanks to some obsessive record collectors, a whole lot of serendipity, and a new documen...

    'White House Down' Review and Roundup: Tatum Hits, Emmerich Misses

    True confession. Always full of mischief and mayhem, Roland Emmerich movies are guilty pleasures for me. An admittedly cheesy entertainer who aims squarely for the mainstream, the German maestro stages action with flair and delivers superior visual effects--big, small, live-action and digital. When ...
