    Review Roundup: Critics Mixed on 'Thor: The Dark World' -- Generic Marvel Entry With Too Little of Loki?

    Following its premiere in London, first reviews for "Thor: The Dark World" (November 8) are coming in, mixed so far. Some critics find the film a generic exercise, straight out of the Marvel machine, with too little Loki (Tom Hiddleston), who is locked up in a glass box for much of his screen time. ...

    Review: Suicide And Sexual Abuse Abound In Claire Denis' Muddled 'Bastards'

    Claire Denis' films are typically intimate dramas weighted with emotion, which makes it particularly dispiriting that "Bastards," her eleventh feature, contains all of those ingredients without sufficiently making them gel.

    Review: Personality & Buoyant Child Performances Sustain Flawed 'The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete'

    Review: The Feel-Good 'CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story' Gets An 'A-'

    I definitely listen to more Pebbles than TLC in 2013. The beloved girl group took over my developing years, oversaturated the radio, and wore me the hell out. Plus, I really only love their first two albums, Ooooooohhh... On the TLC Tip and CrazySexyCool. Still, I was super hype to see VH1 and the ...

    Review: Marvel's 'Thor: The Dark World,' With Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman & Tom Hiddleston

    The first "Thor" movie was something of a risk for Marvel. Wisecracking Robert Downey Jr. in a (relatively) grounded real world setting was one thing, but a Viking god from space, played by a complete unknown and directed by a man best known for Shakespeare adaptations was quite another.
