    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.

    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

    In recent years Jason Statham, with his stocky frame, bald head and gravelly voice that makes him sound like he’s always gnawing on broken glass, has become a kind of one-man wrecking crew, and not just because of his appearance in the “Crank,” “Transporter” and “Expendables” franchises. A rough, se...

    I can’t imagine how anyone pitched this concept to a movie studio. It’s a big summer movie from the director of "Independence Day", full of huge, explosive action scenes—and completely unexpected comedy.

    The Heat

    I feared that we might have seen all the funniest bits of "The Heat" in its trailer; fortunately, I was wrong. The preview only offers a glimpse of what both Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy have to offer in this rowdy, raunchy buddy-cop comedy.
