    Review: Internet Security Documentary 'Terms And Conditions May Apply'

    In director Cullen Hoback’s “Terms And Conditions May Apply,” he seems to be dealing with several issues, some political, some social, none all that clear. Of course, he’s diving into the morass of conflicts between capitalism and politics, an unholy marriage that acts as a cultural ouroborous for a...

    Review - Ryan Coogler Gets To The Heart of Human Portrayal In 'Fruitvale Station' (Opens Today)

    “He didn’t like to be left alone.” Oscar Grant’s mother Wanda, played superbly by Octavia Spencer, delivers this line in one of the most compelling scenes in the film. It is a detail, that when considered in the context of the story, hits us on all sides, and most importantly, in the heart.

    Review: 'Killing Season' Starring Robert De Niro & John Travolta

    The deadening inevitability of “Killing Season” is that, for all its bluster and violence, the picture’s going to end on a ponderous note it can’t quite deliver convincingly. This barebones time-killer from the ruthlessly frugal folks at Millennium Films announces its intentions from the title on, a...

    Fruitvale Station

    If you know the true story that inspired this film you might not be eager to see it, but the tone of "Fruitvale Station" isn’t downbeat or bleak.
