    Review: 'iLL Manors' An Uneven But Honest Attempt At A True Depiction Of Young Urban Life In Britain

    Britain isn’t exactly awash with artists pumping out protest songs any more. Back in 1977 during the Queen’s Silver Jubilee, The Sex Pistols were sailing down the Thames to the tune of “God Save The Queen,” but 35 years later during her Diamond Jubilee there was a flotilla he...

    Review - Morgan Freeman Looks Bored In The Sterile "The Magic Of Belle Isle"

    A question that filmmakers are sometimes told to ask themselves before deciding to embark on any project is whether it's a film that just has to be made - maybe because it's filling some need that's been relatively ignored. Rob Reiner's The Magic Of Belle Isle is ...

    In a Summer Where Indie Sci-Fi Rules, 'Prometheus' Is Better Than It Has Any Right To Be

    There were plenty of reasons not to expect much from Ridley Scott's "Prometheus," primarily because Scott hasn't made a good movie in years. Thankfully, that's no longer the case.

    Review: Todd Solondz's 'Dark Horse' Deconstructs Man-Child Comedies, Mostly Toothlessly

    If there's one theme that's been prevalent -- nay omnipresent -- in American comedy (and some dramas) in the last half-decade or so, it's that of arrested development: the male (for they are usually male) who's been so coddled by parents, by society, by expectations, that he remains ...

    Review: Distraught Young Black Cowboy Grieves Death of Friend in Short 'I Am John Wayne'

    I was able to catch a screener of the approximately 18-minute short I Am John Wayne, which Courtney profiled on the site last week.

    In two episodes – as AMC’s trailers insist – we’ll know who killed Rosie Larsen. Given that the show isn’t about Rosie – it’s about Sarah Linden and, to a lesser extent, Stephen Holder and Darren Richmond – why is it so important that Rosie’s killer is revealed?

    Review: 'Bel Ami' Starring Robert Pattinson Fails To Seduce

    Scowls and Smirks: 'Bel Ami' Is the Latest Proof That Robert Pattinson Needs a New Career Plan

    Robert Pattinson was cast in the biggest role of his burgeoning career not as an actor but an object of lust. The "Twilight" movies, which conclude with the final adaptation of Stephanie Meyers' vampiric book series this fall, fit Pattinson so perfectly as immortal hottie Edward Cullen...
