    Juvenile Delinquents AKA Grown Ups 2

    Review: Thomas Vinterberg's 'The Hunt' Starring Cannes Winner Mads Mikkelsen

    Like many directors who make a big splash with an early feature, Thomas Vinterberg did not have an easy time of it thereafter. And while we don’t particularly understand the critical opprobrium heaped on, for example, “Dear Wendy,” a film this writer admires, it’s clear that he has not fully lived u...

    Review: Horror Anthology Sequel 'V/H/S/ 2'

    Last year, the indie horror anthology "V/H/S" was released and promised to be chock full of truly in-your-face terror – these were fearless directors, given complete creative freedom, and squeezed together under a tight, blood-soaked package. Of course, the promise of "V/H/S" and the actual movie it...

    Book Review: 'Man Of Steel' Novelization Slightly Expands The Movie With Minor New Scenes & Textures Added To The Story

    Superhero movies mean merchandise, which for most studios, is where the real money lies once the box office cycle is done. Because while Warner Bros. is likely enjoying (and still counting) the $580 million that "Man of Steel" has brought in so far, they are likely just as excited to see the sales o...

    Review: 'Grown Ups 2' Starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock & David Spade

    Spoiler alert: the very last joke of “Grown Ups 2” involves a character passing gas on Salma Hayek. This is Salma Hayek, one of the great actresses of international cinema, a global star in multiple languages, one of the most beautiful women in the world, and an Oscar nominee. This is Salma Hayek, w...

    Why 'Killing Season' Starring Robert De Niro and John Travolta Is the Summer's Guiltiest Pleasure

    John Travolta, speaking in a leaden Bosnian accent, hurtles arrows at Southern war vet Robert De Niro while chasing him through the Appalachian woods. That's the entire premise for "Killing Season," an absurdly silly one-note thriller that's ironically pretty entertaining on its own terms.

"Brasslands," a docu...
