    Review: ‘All Is Bright’ Starring Paul Rudd & Paul Giamatti Is A Mostly Joyless Misfire

    Director Phil Morrison hasn't made a film since his exceptional debut indie, "Junebug," which launched Amy Adams in 2005.

    Review: 'A.C.O.D.' Starring Adam Scott, Amy Poehler, Richard Jenkins & Catherine O'Hara

    Comedy can succeed based on either its relatability or sheer absurdity, and “A.C.O.D.” favors the former approach, while not entirely forgoing the latter.

    'Gravity': Alfonso Cuaron's Magical Storytelling

    With Sandra Bullock free-floating and somersaulting head-over-heels through space, Gravity comes loaded with visual dazzle and technical wizardry.
