    Review: Abbie Cornish Shines, But The Questionable 'The Girl' Remains Ethically Dubious

    Well-told, well-shot and featuring a strong, but restrained and internalized performance from actress Abbie Cornish, director David Riker's "The Girl" is a mannered and in-the-pocket indie drama that might be a total subdued winner if it weren't for its dubious political ...

    Critics' Picks: The Top 10 Undistributed Films of 2012

    THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY

    I have great regard for Peter Jackson and his filmmaking partners, which is why it pains me to say that I found 'The Hobbit' incredibly boring. As in 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy, Jackson and his WETA team have raised the bar for visual effects and created some stunning set pieces...

    With the countless number of romantic comedies focused on how difficult it is for a woman to find a good man, it’s incredibly refreshing to see one where the tables are turned.
