    A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD

    When I described Sylvester Stallone’s "Bullet to the Head" as cartoonish, I hadn’t seen "A Good Day to Die Hard." This fifth go-round for the Bruce Willis action series makes the Stallone picture seem positively Shakespearean! To be fair to action junkies I should say that if you like watching thing...

    BEAUTIFUL CREATURES

    If you want to attract a young audience with a love story these days, it seems you have to make the leading characters zombies or vampires or anything but the boy and girl next door. That’s the case with "Beautiful Creatures," although I don’t see how that title applies to the film in question,

    Review: 'Saving Lincoln' A Shoddily Assembled Biopic With Special Effects That Distract Instead Of Enhance

    Sports fans are familiar with that common, irrational howl: the too-invested fan who screams towards the field or at the screen, veins bulging in their forehead prompted by too much lubrication. How could you call that play? Why are you substituting the righthander from the bullpen? Do you not under...

    Review: ‘The Jeffrey Dahmer Files’ Is An Uneasy, Largely Unsuccessful Mixture of Fact And Fiction

    The title of the new true crime documentary “The Jeffrey Dahmer Files” is evocative and provocative. It suggests a couple of things, too. One, the word ‘Files’ insinuates that this is going to be a probing documentary, something that reaches into the storied history of one of America’s most infamous...

    Now and Then: The Dardenne Brothers' Lost Boys

    From the first minutes of "The Kid with a Bike," marked by an energetic shot of its young protagonist, Cyril, careening through a field and climbing over a fence, Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's latest is an exercise in kinesis. It's not just that Cyril's always running: he's running away.

    Berlin Review: Giuseppe Tornatore's 'The Best Offer' Is A Campy, Overcooked Mess

    If director Giuseppe Tornatore has had an up-and-down time of it since his breakthrough, 1988's almost universally adored, Oscar-winning "Cinema Paradiso," it has to be said that his most recent film, "The Best Offer," marks a definite low point, even as one of the downs. But that's probably what's ...

    'Beautiful Creatures': Smarter, Wittier, Better Than 'Twilight'

    Beautiful Creatures, the story of high-school students in love – only one of them with supernatural powers – is bound to be compared to the Twilight movies, but that’s just wrong. Richard LaGravanese’s sumptuous-looking film is crisply directed, wonderfully cast and far ...
