    Review: Cop Thriller 'Blood' Starring Paul Bettany, Stephen Graham, Brian Cox & Mark Strong

    The history of the British police movie is not a glorious one. Perhaps it's because (for the most part) U.K. coppers aren't allowed to carry firearms, which somewhat reduces the capacity for squib-happy action sequences. Or maybe it's the lack of glamorous locations for said shootouts, which can har...

    Review: 'I Give It A Year' Starring Rose Byrne, Rafe Spall, Stephen Merchant, Anna Faris & Minnie Driver

    There's a certain amount of winky irreverence built into "I Give It a Year," based on its title alone, which is something that people snarl, usually at the weddings of people who they feel are fundamentally incompatible. The title suggests that, while it might appear to be a bouncy romantic comedy, ...

    Is Harvey Taking His Scissors to Korean Hit 'Snowpiercer'?

    So far, the reviews for dystopian thriller "Snowpiercer" are raves. But that doesn't mean that Harvey Weinstein won't tinker with the Bong Joon-ho film before releasing it to the territories he controls, which are most of the English-speaking world. Australia trade reporter Don Groves reports that W...

    Review: Lake Bell's 'In a World' a Hilarious Feminist Comedy About the Power of Voice

    What’s in a voice? Power, for one thing. The power to tell people things -- anything from an update on a global crisis to the general gist of a young adult movie franchise. This idea is at the center of Lake Bell’s hilarious, sincere and boldly feminist comedy “In a World,” which she wrote, directed...

    Review: 'We're The Millers' Starring Jason Sudeikis & Jennifer Aniston

    From the start, "We're The Millers" makes it clear it's not going to try very hard. In fact, the film opens by leaning on a montage/sizzle reel of YouTube clips as an easy layup for laughs in order to get audiences already chuckling and in the mood for the patchy comedy to come.

    How 'Elysium' Critiques Every Other Blockbuster Released This Summer

    Mega-budget spectacles are rarely considered the beacons of high culture, but those factory-sealed, CGI-heavy efforts have attracted an especially large amount of vitriol this summer.

    How David Gordon Green's 'Prince Avalanche' Compares With the Icelandic Film It's Based On

    If any recent Icelandic film seemed unlikely to attract interest in a remake, it would have be Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson's 2011 debut feature "Either Way," but that's exactly what David Gordon Green has done with "Prince Avalanche."
