    John Newland's 1973 made-for-TV drama "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" is widely considered a high water mark for feature-length broadcast productions. Produced as an ABC movie of the week, it belonged to a series that also included Steven Spielberg's "Duel" and the early Michael Douglas vehicle "Shatt...

    movie review: CARS 2

    I have such high regard for Pixar and its creative team, led by John Lasseter, that it actually hurts to knock one of their movies—something I’ve never done before. But then, I’ve never gotten a headache watching any of their previous films. Despite

    movie review: Bad Teacher

    I’ve always liked Cameron Diaz, who brings a spark to every part she plays, but she’s only as good as her material, and Bad Teacher is bad news for her and her fans. I was wary going in, as I tend to be whenever a Hollywood movie announces through its advertising how “out...

    movie review: A Better Life

    A Better Life has more to offer than good intentions: it’s sincere and credible, which is more than I can say about an awful lot of movies. Yet something about it kept me at arm’s length: I felt the filmmakers’ presence instead of losing myself in the story. Is that because...

    Critical Consensus: "Conan O'Brien" Can't Stop Being The Pick of the Week

    For the second week in a row, a documentary has topped criticWIRE as the pick of the week. Following last week's "Page One: A Year Inside The New York Times" (a narrow choice over another doc, "Buck"), Rodman Fletcher's "Conan O'Brien Can't Stop" was the consensus among criticWIRE critics.

    LAFF REVIEW | "The Broken Tower" Is Lesser Franco, But James Franco Apologists Think Otherwise

    "This is a slow film on purpose," James Franco told an audience at the downtown Los Angeles premiere of "The Broken Tower," the new movie he recently directed about the life and work of poet Hart Crane. "This is not 'Pineapple Express.'" In fact, "The Broken Tower," which begins with Crane's early e...
