    Review: ‘Silent Hill: Revelation’ A Silly, Artless & Depressing Sequel

    The problem with movies based on video games (or movies that try to capture the video game experience) is that they always come across like watching someone else play a video game. These movies might have budget-pushing effects and plotlines that mimic the follow-the-clues narrative of most games, b...

    Review: 'Wreck-It-Ralph' Has A Great Concept But Fails To Level Up Into Something Unique

With Pixar stuck in sequel mode, and with their original story "Brave" underwhelming this summer, many wondered if the Mouse House would step it up where their colleagues dropped the ball. With a seemingly fresh premis...

    Review: Uninventive U.K. ‘Pusher’ Remake Offers Typically Stylized Drug Psychosis & Nothing More

    Cloud Atlas

    Enthralling and frustrating…far-reaching and obtuse…grandiose and gimmicky. 'Cloud Atlas' is all of these and more, and while I was less taken with the film at its conclusion than I was midway through, it offered me a unique moviegoing experience for which I am grateful.

    Review: 'Chasing Mavericks' Drowns Under A Crushing Wave Of Moroseness & Melodrama

    One of the first things we see in "Chasing Mavericks," a mostly uninspiring surfing drama starring Gerard Butler, his lumpy face framed by strands of willowy wet hair, are the words "Based on a True Story."
