    Review: Lars Von Trier Confronts Depression Head On In The Grim 'Melancholia'

    Essentially shock free, the operatic, three act film plays more like an Ingmar Bergman chamber piece than anything else and the biggest surprise is just how contemplative Von Trier is this time around.

    Review: 'Son Of No One' Suggests 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' As Written By Dennis Lehane

    In the relatively ridiculous new procedural/mystery "Son of No One," Channing Tatum, as a mustachioed police officer married to Katie Holmes (and looking after an epileptic daughter), is sent taunting letters and anonymous text messages alluding to a violent incident from his past. (The movie is set way back in 2002 which is why he doesn't receive cryptic emails too. Because no one used email in 2002 apparently). You can tell how terribly we're supposed to take the threats because of all the shaky shots of Tatum flipping open his ancient cell phone, the scenes shot in sickly shades of blue and green. Except that instead of coming across as su...

    Review: 'Crime After Crime' Is A Haunting Portrait Of A Domestic Violence Victim Behind Bars

    So, um guys, the OWN Documentary Club is kicking ass in its film selections. We know OWN is the channel your mom watches, but the documentaries it features are excellent films that have received festival runs, critical acclaim, and can't be seen on a large national stage anywhere else. It’s a great outlet for those documentary films that contain years of work by the filmmakers and don’t see the kind of distribution they deserve. The access alone is one reason why the OWN Documentary Club is worth the while-- any distribution for documentaries is needed-- but also because they’ve sported some home run choices in their selections. The woman kno...

    Point-Counter-Point Review: 'A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas' A Funny 3D Blast Or A Lazy Gimmick?

    The unlikely third chapter in a highly unlikely franchise, "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas," sees our favorite multi-culti stoner duo of Harold (John Cho) and Kumar (Kal Penn) taking on the merry yuletide spirit as only they could. And in a weird way, it makes perfect sense to pair the boys with Christmas, since for all their bad-ass, pan-Asian Cheech and Chong vibe, the 'Harold & Kumar' movies (2004's "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle" and 2008's "Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay") have largely been sweet fables about the power of friendship and not the outrageous shock-fests they masquerade as. The third film is even sweeter, ...
