    Review: 'The Iron Lady' Is A Shabby & Tin-Eared Standard-Issue Biopic

The film's also bei...

    Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close—movie review

    I doubt that anyone who lived through the events of September 11, 2001 could remain completely unmoved by the story of how one boy deals with the death of his father, who was trapped in one of the World Trade Center towers that morning. There are many painful, poignant, and highly-fraught moments in...

    'Becoming Santa' Is A Joyless Christmas Doc

    When judging modern Christmas movies, a good place to start is with the “hipness” of the film’s music. Danny DeVito does a little hip-hop DJ-ing in “Deck the Halls,” Michael Keaton fronts a touring rock act in “Jack Frost” (his group in the film is called &l...

    "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" Is Not the 9/11 Movie You've Been Waiting For

    First things first: "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" is not the 9/11 movie you've been waiting for. It's not a reflection of some neatly demarcated passage of time that would allow a movie like it to exist. Such a movie doesn't exist in any precise, objective way--but if i...

    War Horse—movie review

    We Bought A Zoo—movie review

    If your favorite descriptive word for a movie is “edgy,” you might want to skip this one. If, however, you like heartwarming—not cloying—stories about decent people, and hope to leave the theater feeling better than you did when you walked in, 'We Bought a Zoo' will be a welcome cup of holiday cheer...

    Wim Wenders' 3D Dance Tribute "Pina" Is Both Gorgeous and Slight
