    The Heat - Written by Katie Dippold

    Yesterday, I wrote a piece that gave my argument about why you need to go and see The Heat this weekend. What I didn't share since I was embargoed was the fact that I really liked the movie and it made me laugh so hard, harder than I have done in a long, long time.

    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.
