    Young Adult

    I heart Young Adult.  I heart it because it is an awesome and original story.  I heart it because Charlize Theron hits it out of the park as the horribly bitchy Mavis a woman stuck in her high school self because that was when she was queen.  You know when you look at the male footbal...

    TONY DAYOUB: TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY is a worthy remake filled with lonely characters

    The tall, athletic man introduced earlier in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy as British Intelligence officer Jim Prideaux (Mark Strong) walks into a classroom and begins to write his name on the chalkboard. Only he does not write the name we’ve come to know him by. The typically garrulous young males atte...

    Why Irish Fighting Doc 'Knuckle' Gained Interest From Hollywood and HBO

    "Knuckle," documentarian Ian Palmer's portrait of Irish families constantly engaging in bare knuckle fights, generated immediate industry buzz when it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January.

    Review: 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows' An Engaging, Entertaining Sequel Brimming With Charisma & Top Notch Action

    If “Sherlock Holmes” was the first movie to properly capitalize on Robert Downey Jr.’s career resuscitation after “Iron Man” became a mega-success, then “A Game Of Shadows,” its follow up, is the first sequel to understand how to sustain his appeal without a...

    Review: Understated & Powerful Documentary 'Knuckle' Is A Knockout

    Given the recent explosion of mixed martial arts in the last several years, it seems like a no-brainer that someone would make a documentary about real-life pugilists who don’t just fight but have a real, deep-rooted beef with one another. But Ian Palmer’s documentary “Knuckle&rdqu...

    Review: 'Catch .44' Is Fully Loaded With '90s Crime Movie Clichés

    "In The Tradition Of The Usual Suspects And Reservoir Dogs" proclaims the back of BluRay box of the copy we received. If only. The spirit may be willing, but the movie from writer and director Aaron Harvey is weak. Seemingly cobbled together out of leftover ideas from every movie that came...

    Young Adult—movie review

    What are we to make of Young Adult? Clearly, we’re meant to applaud Charlize Theron’s willingness to use her beauty more as a shield than an asset as she plays a thoroughly unlikable character. A onetime high-school heartthrob, she’s fallen into a pitiable state—barely employ...

    L.A. Rebellion 2011 Retrospective Review - Charles Burnett's Other Masterpiece "To Sleep With Anger"

    To Sleep With Anger was released with a small bit of fanfare in 1990. Charles Burnett had already acquired a reputation as one of our most important homegrown auteurs even if most of the audience, black and white alike, were unfamiliar with his work.
