    10 Film Franchises That Need a Christmas Movie

    Now that Halloween is over, we can start thinking about Christmas. The dominant holiday of only two-sevenths of the world's population (not counting the non-religious hangers on) is rearing its head early this year thanks to Friday's release of "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas." This third installment of the stoner comedy franchise will hopefully be another riotous satire full of political incorrectness, and the series' typical play with race, creed, sexuality and politics ought to fit perfectly with the many themes, positive and negative, associated with the day when we commercially exploit celebrate the bir...

    "A Bitter Taste of Freedom" is a Personal Portrait of a Late Friend and a Nation That's Lost Its Way

    Forgive my usual instinct to compare new films with old, and docs with narratives, but going into Marina Goldovskaya's new documentary, "A Bitter Taste of Freedom," I couldn't help but think of Joel Schumacher's "Veronica Guerin." There have been other female journalists assassinated for their prying, I'm sure, but Guerin and Anna Politkovskaya, the Russian reporter at the center of "Bitter," are probably the most famous. In Schumacher's drama (and no, I haven't seen John Mackenzie's earlier, names-changed version, "When the Sky Falls"), Guerin is portrayed by Cate Blanchett as more pestering than penetrating, an obnoxiously forthcoming inves...
