    Crazy, Stupid, Love.

    When a movie opens with a woman telling her husband that she wants a divorce after twenty-five years of marriage and it isn’t played for laughs, you know you’re not in for a “typical” Hollywood comedy. Given the current state of comedy, that’s not necessarily a ...

    The Guard

    This movie made me smile and even laugh out loud. In fact, it gave me more pleasure than any aliens, robots or superheroes have all summer. That’s because it’s doggedly offbeat and completely original. It also provides a showcase for two fine actors, Brendan Gleeson and Don Chead...

    Smithsonian Names "The Champ" the "Saddest Movie Ever." Here's Our Alternatives.

    Franco Zeffirelli's 1979 boxing tearjerker "The Champ" has officially been named "the saddest movie of all time", not by an internet poll, but rather by a 23-year scientific study by psychologists Robert Levinson and James Gross as noted in Smithsonian.

    Critical Consensus: "The Interrupters" and "Attack The Block" Top Very Busy Week of Indie Releases

    In a remarkably busy week for new specialty releases, a tight race for the top rated film on criticWIRE saw both Steve James' "The Interrupters" and Joe Cornish's "Attack The Block" receive exceptionally warm notices. While "The Interrupters" technically was the top pick, both had "A-" level averages and are among the best reviewed films on criticWIRE so far this year. Oddly enough, both films revolve around street gangs, but in vasty different ways. "Block" follows a London street gang who have to defend themselves from rowdy alien invaders, while "The Interrupters" is a documentary about three Violence Interrupters who try to protect their...

    REVIEW | How "Life in a Day " Reflects User-Generated Expression

It also became the de facto archive for adorable cats and newsroom goofs, among countless other viral memes now accepted as commonplace.

    REVIEW | "The Devil's Double" Portrays Uday Hussein as Evil, But Otherwise Fails

    It's hard to believe that "The Devil's Double" doesn't intend to be a put-on. Despite a real-life basis of its plot, Lee Tamahori's fierce depiction of hedonistic Saddaam Hussein spawn Uday Hussein relegates the character to a farcical cartoon. Looking like a macabre Groucho Marx, Dominic Cooper por...

    Captain America: The First Avenger

    I’m a bit late coming to this film—blame Comic-Con—but having heard good buzz I went to see it this morning with high hopes. For starters, a comic book story set during World War Two offers a perfect opportunity to banish irony, make use of Nazis as bad guys, and cheer on a...
