    DVD/VOD Review - 'Unthinkable' (Samuel L Jackson Yells A Lot And Does Some Bad Things)

    What a silly exercise Unthinkable is. It's just not very good! In fact, for a film centered on material of such gravity, it's more comical than it likely intended to be. I laughed. A lot. From Samuel L. Jackson's usual obnoxious screaming-man routine, to the film's preposterous setups, horrible, hac...

    Review - Shola Lynch's Sobering, Candid 'Free Angela & All Political Prisoners' (Opens Friday)

    Question: You had a pretty bourgeois and comfortable childhood, in Birmingham; and so did your sister [Angela]; can you trace the development of someone from that kind of background into a revolutionary and Marxist person?

    Review: 'Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal' An Enjoyable If Somewhat Slight Horror-Comedy

    A blunt, no-nonsense title like "Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal" perfectly describes the type of movie you're going to encounter when viewing Boris Rodriguez's first narrative feature -- a weird, darkly comic tale offering little more than an enjoyable experience. While 'Eddie' could've tried a li...

    Review: 'Free Angela & All Political Prisoners' A Fascinating Chronicle Of Justice & Strength

    "Black power means dignity," is a phrase that lingers from Shola Lynch's documentary about activist and scholar Angela Davis. And dignity is just one of the many qualities that one can attach to Davis, a bold and powerful figure whose own battle for justice and freedom is chronicled in "Free Angela ...

    Review: 'Down The Shore' With James Gandolfini & Famke Janssen An Overheated Jersey Melodrama

    What is it about Jersey that causes filmmakers to make films which constantly talk about escaping from or dreading a return to the Garden State? If I didn’t just answer my own question, there’s always “Down The Shore,” an actors' showcase melodrama that captures the small town as a prison where char...

    Now and Then: Why We Love GIFs, from Taylor Swift to Goats (VIDEO)

    Disclaimer: this will not be your usual romance. It involves Taylor Swift, a goat, and a lemon among its cast of thousands. It has no clear "meet cute," and may not reach a happy ending. In one sense at least, it has no beginning or ending at all. But somewhere along the way we fell in love with the...

    DVD/VOD Review: 'Michael Jackson's This Is It' (A Rarely Seen Portrait Of The Artist At Work)

    When this film was released in 2009 I wasn't sure if I would see it, given my profound disapproval of what I felt was Sony's obviously exploitative decision to produce and release the documentary, so soon after Michael Jackson's death.
