Get ready for a grim conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s three-picture Batman saga, CBS 2′s Michael Walters says.
“The Amazing Spider-Man” doesn’t shoot for great, it shoots for just good enough. It’s one of the more puzzling reboots of recent years since it doesn’t try to do anything new.
“Magic Mike” is an exercise in low-class tawdry exploitation from high class director Stephen Soderberg.
“To Rome with Love” marks a return to the usual latter-day Woody Allen output after last year’s surprisingly lively and Oscar Winning “Midnight in Paris.”
“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” is never quite as much fun as its title would suggest.
In jukebox musicals like this one,the only object is to engender nostalgia and get the audience to sing along with songs they already know by heart. It doesn’t have an ounce of originality or a thought in its head, but this ode to 80′s hair bands does its job.
Comedian Patton Oswalt has risen to the level of a comedy Rock Star, but he was prepared to take a few chances when he stepped out for his second show during the Just For Laughs festival at Chicago’s Vic Theatre.
The dirtiest jokes aren’t necessarily always the best ones. “That’s My Boy” doubles down on the dirty, but forgets the jokes part of the equation.
This series isn’t awful, but it’s unquestionably a Dreamworks production right down to its lazy reliance on celebrity voices and pop culture references that are dated before they even hit the screen.
“Prometheus” delves deep into the backstory to determine the origin not just of the Alien, but of life itself.
Wes Anderson himself has called “Moonrise Kingdom” a memory of a fantasy, and it has the hazy qualities one associates with a powerful experience that gets rosier and more alluring the older it gets.
“Snow White and the Huntsman” tries a dark-action movie approach to the traditional fairy tale, but the results are as blasé as the expression on Kristen Stewart’s face.
At its best, “Men in Black” was an agreeable little piece of popcorn pleasure, and I haven’t exactly been clamoring to know what Agent J and Agent K have been up to in the decade since we saw them last.
“Battleship” is a big dumb summer popcorn movie that gives big dumb summer popcorn movies a bad name.
By now, we’ve come to expect bad taste from Sacha Baron Cohen. In “The Dictator,” Cohen again finds a fertile ground for comedy playing a ruthless dictator of a North African oil-rich nation.
Johnny Depp goes to ‘camp’ and finds a role he can really sink his teeth into in “Dark Shadows.”
“The Avengers” is an overblown, overstuffed, superhero extravaganza, and that’s precisely what its legions of fans will be looking for.
In “The Raven,” the original master of horror, Edgar Allan Poe, finds himself trapped in a story unworthy of his considerable talents.
The film version of Steve Harvey’s best-seller “Think Like A Man, Act Like A Lady” practically arrives at theaters with its own dust jacket.
If author Nicholas Sparks ever wrote an installment of the “Final Destination” series, it would probably look something like this.
