    Review: Sweet, Sad 'The Motel Life' Starring Emile Hirsch, Stephen Dorff & Dakota Fanning

    On the surface, there should be nothing particularly special about producer-turned-director brothers Gabe and Alan Polsky's debut, "The Motel Life."

    Review: WWII Drama 'The Book Thief' Starring Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson & Sophie Nélisse

    "You missed a very dull TV show on Auschwitz. More gruesome film clips, and more puzzled intellectuals declaring their mystification over the systematic murder of millions.

    Review: Insipid, Painful Rom-Com 'A Case Of You' Starring Evan Rachel Wood & Justin Long

    It was only a matter of time before someone tried to fully exploit the social media age for the evils of the generic romantic comedy and "A Case Of You," a new Justin Long-led rom-com, does just that; abusing the Facebook platform to create the first FB stalker comedy.
