    movie review: Zookeeper

    Kevin James has developed an irresistible screen persona as a nice-guy/underdog, which has served him well in some pretty mediocre films like Paul Blart: Mall Cop.

    dvd review: Back To The 1950s

    When I was growing up in the 1950s and 60s, the last thing I wanted to see was a “serious” movie. I eagerly awaited each new Jerry Lewis comedy and Walt Disney release, and when the newly-reconstituted Three Stooges started making feature films I was first in line to see them. I ...

    REVIEW | Planet of the Ape: James Marsh's "Project Nim"

    Although it promises to be the story of a communicative chimp, James Marsh's documentary "Project Nim" focuses on the human desire to speak with animals, rather than vice versa. Marsh follows up his Oscar-winning "Man on Wire" with the moving saga of a monkey raised by families under the auspices of...

    REVIEW | "The Ward" Shows John Carpenter Still Has Potential. He Just Fails to Use It.

    "The Ward" has all the hallmarks of the genre that its director, John Carpenter, once executed to a fault: Strong female characters facing off against abnormal threats, ghastly circumstances stemming from murky backstories and action set within a single, claustrophobic environment. While familiar in...

    movie review: Terri

    John C. Reilly’s presence in a movie is almost a guarantee that you’re going to see something interesting. He has good taste and is willing to challenge himself, even if the films are modest in scale. One could scarcely find a movie more modest than Terri, but it’s extremel...
