    Review: Steven Spielberg's 'War Horse' An Awards Bait Movie Overloaded With Nostalgia & Sentiment

    If David Thomson was accurate when he said of Tom Hanks, “he carries the automatic sentiment of a dog in a film about people,” then the hero of Steven Spielberg’s “War Horse” is the equine equivalent of Tom Hanks: among his human counterparts he attracts such instantane...

    Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows—movie review

    As one who couldn’t stand the first Guy Ritchie-Robert Downey, Jr. 'Sherlock Holmes' movie, I didn’t mind this one so much. For one thing, I knew what I was in for: more rapid-fire Downey wisecracks and meaningless disguises, more attention-getting, gimmicky action scenes. But at least it doesn’t lo...

    Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol—movie review

    Unlike most movie series, this one has actually improved with each new installment since its debut in 1996; the last one, directed by J.J. Abrams, reinvigorated the concept, while this fourth entry—which the studio seems to want to downplay as a 'Mission: Impossible' film, given the tiny typeface th...

    Carnage—movie review

    Carnage seems to be a pretty good movie, but I have no way of evaluating it without comparing it to the play on which it’s based, 'God of Carnage', which I saw on Broadway with a perfect cast (James Gandolfini, Marcia Gay Harden, Jeff Daniels, and Hope Davis). This isn’t fair to the picture—or to vi...

    Review: 'Carnage' Is Fun While It Lasts, But Insubstantial & Anonymous

    Compared to his last film, Roman Polanski's "Carnage" must have been a breeze. Not that the shoot for "The Ghost Writer" was "Fitzcarraldo" or anything, but, famously, the project hit a major speed bump in September 2009, while the film was in post-production, when ...

    "Cook County" Is the Cheap Alternative to "Breaking Bad"

    Over the last four years, AMC drama "Breaking Bad" has earned a reputation as one of the best shows on television. The saga of a high school chemistry teacher embroiled in meth production, it treats the drug and its users as the pitiable victims of larger interests. Anyone seeking an alter...

    Robert Downey and Jude Law in Joyful, Sparkling Sherlock Holmes

    Poor Watson, a smart guy fated to look dim next to his brilliant best friend, Sherlock, and often underused on screen the way Robert Sean Leonard is as Wilson on House (as the series’ creator has often said, Wilson is Watson to House’s Holmes).  The bright twist in Sherlock Hol...

    Review & Round-up: Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Opens A Day Early, December 20

    "The Social Network'''s Rooney Mara delivers Salander in a smart expertly executed film that takes the time to make clear plot developments and changing dynamics between investigator Blomkvist (well-played by Daniel Craig) and the androgynous punk researcher who has a woman in her bed when he first ...
