    Review: Sensational True-Crime Doc 'The Cheshire Murders' Asks All the Right Questions

    “The Cheshire Murders,” airing on HBO July 22, is, in part, a blow-by-blow account of the unspeakable 2007 Connecticut home invasion that left a mother and her two daughters dead, and made Dr. William Petit his state’s leading advocate for the death penalty (which was abolished there nonetheless).

    Review: 'The Lone Ranger' Starring Johnny Depp & Armie Hammer

    "What's with the mask?" is a question frequently asked throughout "The Lone Ranger," both as a running gag and a reminder it seems, that the film will give you everything you ever wanted to know about masked hero, and then some.

    'Despicable Me 2' Retains Original's Charm--and Minions

    A half hour into “Despicable Me 2,” I had no idea what the story was. I didn’t care very much – directors Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud obviously knew that regular doses of Minion magic would mollify even the most nettlesome demand for a storyline– but the prospect of having to write a plot summary...

    Review: Neil Labute-Written ‘Some Girl(s)’ Starring Adam Brody, An Acerbic Yet Toothless Satirical Dramedy

    For the sake of argument, let’s agree that the Neil LaBute narrative unfolds like this: the provocative playwright turned filmmaker stormed the indie world in 1997 with his disturbing, brusque and scathing critique of the male psyche “In The Company of Men.” LaBute's controversial, piquant, sometime...

    Review: 'Redemption' Starring Jason Statham
