    Review Round-Up: 'The Dictator' with Sacha Baron Cohen

    Sacha Baron Cohen's new comedy "The Dictator" is getting strong initial reviews in England, where it opens first. Hence the floodgates opened on stateside reviews, which are 85% on Rotten Tomatoes so far--that's a whole lot better than "Bruno"'s 67% Tomatometer score....

    Dark Shadows—movie review

    It makes sense that for Johnny Depp and director Tim Burton to get in on the current vampire craze, they’d have to approach it with a sense of humor. I doubt if many young viewers know that they’ve based their new film on a forty-year-old daytime TV drama, and it scarcely matters. Dark S...

    Hollywood’s Hobo In Residence
