    REVIEW | "Meet Monica Velour" Is Better Than Its Poster, But Not By Much

    The tagline on the poster for "Meet Monica Velour" reads "Fantasy Meets Reality," an announcement made underneath the image of a stone-faced and scantily clad Kim Cattrall leaning her right foot against a stripper pole. It's intended as a splashy encapsulation of the plot, in which horny 17-year-old...

    REVIEW | "Hanna" is the Ass-Kicker that "Sucker Punch" Wanted to Be

    In "Hanna," director Joe Wright successfully recycles almost every action movie trope of the past decade. From the seamless hand-on-hand combat to the appropriately frenzied soundtrack by The Chemical Brothers, the resulting adrenaline-packed vehicle delivers a multi-directional sugar rush. It moves...

    REVIEW | Strangely Alluring Over "Kati with an I"

    In "Kati with an I," documentarian Robert Greene ("Owning the Weather") turns his camera on his teenage half-sister on the brink of her high school graduation. That backdrop offers nothing new, but Greene's patient, understated portrait renders a universal rite of passage in strangely alluring, poet...

    REVIEW | The New Old West: Kelly Reichardt's "Meek's Cutoff"

    movie review: Source Code

    Source Code is perfectly agreeable entertainment, so long as you don’t ask too much of it. It has an intriguing science-fiction premise that hints at deeper issues but, in truth, the movie doesn’t want to disturb us or make us think too much.

    REVIEW | Adrien Brody's Diminishing Returns Continue With "Wrecked"

    Here's a triple bill dying to be made: "Buried," in which Ryan Reynolds spends the entire running time in a coffin; "127 Hours," featuring James Franco, an immovable boulder and little else; and the newly released "Wrecked," a modest survival tale starring Adrian Brody as a car-crash victim trapped ...
