After a summer of increasingly stale popcorn fare, Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine” is something of a breath of fresh air.
“The Wolverine” takes America’s favorite ill-tempered mutton-chopped mutant to Japan to slice and dice with ninjas, but the results aren’t nearly as satisfying as they should be.
The Lone Ranger gets off to a pretty good start with a genuinely exciting runaway train and it ends spectacularly with a thrilling shootout aboard two high speed iron horses set to the William Tell Overture.
Melissa McCarthy is a force of nature- A typhoon of energy that spares nothing in her pursuit of a laugh, but she always emerges with her dignity intact.
“World War Z” is a thoroughly conventional and forgettable zombie movie. To the filmmakers, that must feel like one heck of an accomplishment after what was by all accounts a cursed and tortured shoot.
Since Superman’s last two big screen creations were such disappointments, you can’t blame director Zach Snyder for starting all over again. And in “Man Of Steel,” the fresh approach works — kind of.
Compared to what audiences have been served in the previous the eight years, “The Internship” winds up looking a lot better than it really is.
“The Purge” shows a dystopian future where crime takes a holiday 364 days of the year. But it’s a half-baked effort, CBS 2′s Michael Walters says.
This big budget vanity project is the worst kind of bad movie. It’s not fun bad. It’s not a fascinating fiasco. It’s not even unintentionally entertaining. It’s a deathly dull and stupefyingly boring romp through a desolate earth.
“Fast & Furious 6″ is just as ludicrously implausible as its predecessors, with only a fraction of Fast Five’s gonzo energy.
“The Hangover Part III” is a slight improvement over the dreadful second installment, but it’s just as pointless. This is one Hangover that never should have been repeated in the first place.
This sequel to director J.J. Abrams 2009 reboot is part homage, part thrill ride, and part morality play. It’s much like the best episodes of the TV series that inspired it, only with much much better special effects.
This latest version of “The Great Gatsby” isn’t weighted down by its status as “The Great American Novel.” Instead, director Baz Luhrmann seems inspired by it.
Iron Man 3 is both a step up and a step down from the now much maligned (however unfairly) Iron Man 2.
“Pain And Gain” is an aggressive, unrepentantly block-headed black hole of a movie that sucks all intelligence and talent into its vortex leaving only a vacuum of stupidity behind. I felt like I was a little dumber just for having spent two hours in its presence.
“Oblivion” is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller with a few tricks up its sleeve. Unfortunately those tricks have all been stolen from other much better movies.
“Olympus Has Fallen” would have to get a lot smarter just to be charitably called dumb. It is in fact one of the mind numbingly inane movies of the year, and this year that’s really saying something.
“Oz The Great And Powerful” isn’t in the same category as the timeless “Wizard Of Oz,” (what is?), but it’s a reasonably entertaining reinterpretation of the classic tale if you can take it on its own terms.
“Jack The Giant Slayer” seems destined to be the Hollywood blockbuster that nobody really likes.
The Chicago-based Onion newspaper is apologizing for calling the 9-year-old star of “Beasts of the Southern Wild” a vulgar and offensive name on Twitter, an attack that led to a firestorm online.
For the second time, Esquire named Scarlett Johansson the ‘Sexiest Woman Alive.’
