    Sorry, Pedro: 'I'm So Excited' Is Almodóvar's Worst Film

    Over the course of 30 years, Pedro Almodóvar's movies have been kinky, strange, melodramatic and entertaining often in the best of ways, but "I'm So Excited!" delivers all those ingredients gone wrong.

    'I'm So Excited' Review: Sex, Drugs and R&B Collide at 30,000 Feet

    It's hard to understand the motivation of whoever was tasked with translating the title of Pedro Almodóvar's new movie into English. They ended up with "I'm So Excited!", which certainly conveys the campy joy of the 95-minute airborne bacchanal but is a far cry from the film's original Spanish title...

    This Is The End

    This movie is a self-indulgent exercise built on a one-joke premise…but it made me laugh from start to finish.

    Review: Coppola's 'The Bling Ring'

    Confession: going into "The Bling Ring," I was hopeful that I’d find the Sofia Coppola of "Marie Antoinette" rather than the Sofia Coppola of "Somewhere" parked behind the camera.
