    Cowboys & Aliens: movie review

    As its title indicates, this is a strange cross of movie genres, and lest any viewers get antsy, it doesn’t allow much time to pass before we first encounter UFOs in the Old West. The film takes its time unraveling the rest of the story, leading us along a trail with no clear destination in sight, a...

    Crazy, Stupid, Love.

    When a movie opens with a woman telling her husband that she wants a divorce after twenty-five years of marriage and it isn’t played for laughs, you know you’re not in for a “typical” Hollywood comedy. Given the current state of comedy, that’s not necessarily a ...

    The Guard

    This movie made me smile and even laugh out loud. In fact, it gave me more pleasure than any aliens, robots or superheroes have all summer. That’s because it’s doggedly offbeat and completely original. It also provides a showcase for two fine actors, Brendan Gleeson and Don Chead...

    Captain America: The First Avenger

    I’m a bit late coming to this film—blame Comic-Con—but having heard good buzz I went to see it this morning with high hopes. For starters, a comic book story set during World War Two offers a perfect opportunity to banish irony, make use of Nazis as bad guys, and cheer on a...

    Friends With Benefits

    This movie wants you to know that it isn’t one of those stupid Hollywood romantic comedies. The characters talk about “those” movies disparagingly and even watch a parody of that kind of film on TV. What’s more, in the opening scenes of Friends With Benefits, the acto...

    Sarah's Key

    If there is any justice this summer that’s not being meted out by a comic-book superhero, discerning moviegoers will find their way to Sarah’s Key, the moving adaptation of Tatiana De Rosnay’s international best-seller. It’s one of the year’s best films. Kristin Scott Thomas plays an American-born journalist who lives in France with her husband and daughter. While researching an article about the fate of French Jews during World War Two, she stumbles onto an incredible story involving a little girl named Sarah (played by newcomer Mélusine Mayance) who is separated from her family. An unexpected c...

    Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part Two

    I wouldn’t call myself a Potterhead, but I have certainly enjoyed following the odyssey of Harry Potter and company over the past decade. Nothing can compare to the experience of reading J.K. Rowling’s books, which have been expertly condensed and interpreted by screenwriter Stev...

    Winnie The Pooh

    In an era of hyperactive, overly verbal 3-D animated entertainment, I hope there is still room for a film as sweet and gentle as Winnie the Pooh. At the screening I attended it seemed like the young adults in the audience were enjoying it even more than the kids, reliving their childhood mem...
