    Weekend Preview: 'Total Recall' a Noisy, Shallow, Costly Misfire

    For a reported budget of $200 million, you'd think that if nothing else "Total Recall" would be visually dazzling.

    Review: 'Assassin's Bullet' Is A Spectacularly Inept Action Movie

    Review: 'Total Recall' A Derivative, Dim & Substance-Free Remake

    A pastiche of almost too many movies to count as a remake of just one, “Total Recall” is mindless, middling fare that fails to utilize – much less expand – the provocative concepts at the core of its iconic 1990 predecessor. Len Wiseman, whose “Die Hard” sequel effectively betrayed every one of the ...

    Review: 'Celeste And Jesse Forever' A Charming Tale Of Romance & Heartbreak In The Vein Of 'When Harry Met Sally'

    If "(500) Days of Summer" is bound to be considered this generation’s "Annie Hall" (not its equal, mind you, but its closest equivalent), then it’s fair to claim that "Celeste and Jesse Forever" follows in the footsteps of "When Harry Met Sally," picking up where that film ended and proceeding to ch...
