    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...

    When a film has so many attributes—including superior performances and a tangible sense of time, place, and atmosphere—it’s tempting to overlook its shortcomings. That wouldn’t be honest, but at least I can begin on a positive note. From the casting of Gary Oldman as veteran MI6 agent George Smiley ...

    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.

    "London River" Pits Great Actors Against Lackluster Material

    Rachid Bouchareb's "London River" is simultaneously quaint and far-reaching, a tension the filmmaker never fully resolves. Set in the immediate aftermath of the 2005 London bombings, the movie follows a pair of single parents -- a middle-class widow, Elisabeth (Brenda Blethyn), who hea...

    Review: Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol Returns Cruise to Giddy Action

    The supremely imaginative director of "The Incredibles" meets Hollywood’s most determined, career-committed star for the former’s live-action debut and the latter’s reboot of the spy-thrills franchise that keeps on giving as far as his career is concerned.

    Animation, Old And New

    Whatever your taste in animation, a handful of new DVD and Blu-ray releases offer stimulating and even jubilant experiences.

    Review: 'London River' A Gentle Current Pain, Anger & Acceptance In The Wake Of Terrorist Attacks

    When Elisabeth (Brenda Blethyn) first hears about the suicide bombings that shook London on July 7, 2005, it's from her television set a world away in Guernsey. Among the pastoral setting of her farm, the events that are happening miles away seem even more horrific and unbelievable, but her shoc...
