    White House Down

    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.

    I'm So Excited!

    Perhaps because he took such a somber turn in his last film, the ultra-serious "The Skin I Live In", Pedro Almodóvar has opted for a return to the outrageous sexual humor that put him on the map.

    Review: Xavier Dolan's Epic 'Laurence Anyways'

    "The sky's the limit," Fred (Suzanne Clement) says when she's asked about what people will say when her boyfriend Laurence (Melvin Poupad) decides to become a woman. It's 1989 and she believes that her generation is ready to handle transsexuality -- and perhaps they are -- but as both Fred and Laure...

    L.A. Film Fest Review: 'Levitated Mass' Tells the Story Of A Rock Star Meeting The Masses

    The new documentary from Doug Pray, "Levitated Mass," is a story about an artist, a museum, a city, a piece of art. But what it's really about is a rock. A rock that's a star. Quite possibly one of the most famous rocks in the world, Levitated Mass, the massive monolithic land sculpture by land arti...

    Review: 'The Heat' Starring Melissa McCarthy & Sandra Bullock

    It isn’t maybe halfway through “The Heat” when you realize its purpose for existing isn’t for the freshest reasons. Paul Feig’s new cop comedy, a spiritual follow-up to his brassy “Bridesmaids,” seems heavily indebted to pretty much every cop comedy you’ve ever seen, Feig dutifully playing the hits ...

    'A Band Called Death' Vs. 'Searching For Sugar Man': Are the Comparisons Apt?

    The parallels are pretty substantial: Both movies involve Detroit-based musicians retroactively appreciated as visionaries in their respective musical genres during their early days, the mid-to-late seventies. But "A Band Called Death" arguably presents a more eventful saga.

    Review: 'White House Down' Starring Channing Tatum & Jamie Foxx

    With a movie called "White House Down," directed by Roland Emmerich, you pretty much know what you're going to get. Having already laid waste to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue twice before in "2012" and "Independence Day," Emmerich luxuriates in blowing up the national icon once again. Both wings and the ...

    Review: 'A Band Called Death' Rewrites Punk History And Tells An Emotional Story Of Faith And Family

    Nope, not The Ramones, The Clash or the Sex Pistols. Not even Bad Brains. The true punk pioneers were a band called Death, straight out of Motor City, Detroit, and you’ve probably never heard of them until now. Thanks to some obsessive record collectors, a whole lot of serendipity, and a new documen...
