    Kristen Wiig In 'Girl Most Likely' And Jeff Garlin In 'Dealin' With Idiots' Make For Weird Combo Of New Indie Comedies

    It's hard to make people laugh, so no wonder few filmmakers try. While plenty of new releases contain elements of humor in their DNA, from Andrew Bujalski's irreverent "Computer Chess" to Noah Baumbach's sardonic "Frances Ha," the last few months have been weak on new comedies. Even studios have ent...

    Review: 'R.I.P.D.' Starring Ryan Reynolds & Jeff Bridges

    One day a studio will fund a $100 million plus tentpole, screen the finished version, and flat-out deem it un-releasable, unwatchable and unmarketable. Until then, we only have reminders that that day is coming, in the form of misguided boondoggles like “R.I.P.D.,” a picture that Universal is releas...

    Red 2

    I yearn for a summer movie season without sequels. I know, call me a dreamer, but watching movies like "Red 2" is positively dispiriting.

    Only God Forgives

    Some people value style over content; I prefer a melding of the two, which is why I found Nicolas Winding Refn’s "Drive" so irritating and pretentious.

    Review: 'Broken' Starring Tim Roth & Cillian Murphy

    There is a difference between a kitchen sink drama and a drama that includes everything but the kitchen sink, and unfortunately for "Broken," it's more of the latter than the former. Marking the feature debut by theatre director Rufus Norris and with Tim Roth, Cillian Murphy and Rory Kinnear among t...

    Review: 'Tremors' Meets 'The Guard' In Horror-Comedy 'Grabbers'

    Perfect fodder for a late-night audience, UK/Irish co-production "Grabbers," directed by Jon Wright, is a fun ride, and while it doesn't reinvent the "Tremors" and "Slither" modern-b-movie wheel, it adds a few neat touches to that formula. It's a shame it ultimately favours repetition over originali...

    Review: Microbudget Indie 'By Way of Home' Punches Above Its Weight (TRAILER)

    Reunited after a two-year estrangement, childhood friends Brooke and Morgan spend the early stages of "By Way of Home" catching up. The former, laid off and living with her parents, describes this state of affairs with a gentle euphemism ("the whole family's home"), but her delivery carries the unmi...

    Review: Tragi-Comedy 'Act of Killing' Confronts the Killer Inside (TRAILER)

    With his documentary "The Act of Killing," Joshua Oppenheimer has reset the bar for tragi-comedy. As in, don’t even bother trying, Hollywood. Ever again. In fact, why don’t we just dispense with next year’s Oscar race right now and give both the best documentary and the best feature award to this ...

    Review: 'Red 2' Starring Bruce Willis, Catherine Zeta-Jones, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren & More

    “Red 2” begins with a cool, comic-book-style credits sequence, paying a short homage to its Warren Ellis-penned roots. Too short, in fact. Just as we’re starting to get into the warmly hued titles, we’re thrown headlong into the live-action, high-stakes world of retired government agents...shopping ...
