Review: Cars 2

Pixar’s second worst movie. Boring, stupid, and full of bad creative decisions.

LAFF Review: A Better Life
Wednesday, June 22 by

A real thriller with intense stakes, against the backdrop of a relevant social issue.

Review: Bad Teacher
Tuesday, June 21 by

Doesn’t quite go all the way into dark comedy but it’s unapologetically cynical and that makes for good laughs.

Kat Coiro’s debut feature makes some of the same mistakes as other standard Hollywood movies, but it gets a lot more right.

An gripping action movie by way of atmosphere and build-up.

It’s a great week to be a movie fan. Of course course by “great,” I mean “abysmal.”

A Jim Carrey penguin movie. It totally delivers on having Jim Carrey and penguins in it.

Terri is a fat kid, but they don’t play the fat card very long.

LAFF Review: The Guard
Friday, June 10 by

Basically, it’s ‘Rush Hour’ with an obnoxious WHITE cop, and a reasonable competent black agent has to deal with him.

LAFF Review: Higher Ground
Thursday, June 9 by

It is more often uncomfortable but sometimes profound and inspiring.

The Devil's Double
LAFF Review: The Devil’s Double
Thursday, June 9 by

An interesting twist on the crime saga/warlord genre, told through the perspective of an outsider forced to be inside.

Turns out to be a patronizing exercise in fabricated childhood emotion.

It’s so good, I held my pee for at least 90 minutes because I didn’t want to miss anything.

What better way to honor their memory than by spending your extra day off watching a movie about a talking smart-alec panda that knows kung fu?

This is everything we loved about ‘The Hangover’ and more all new epic, outrageous comedy.

You look like you need to know what’s playing! You also look a little jaundiced.

Review: American Animal
Wednesday, May 18 by

Writer/director Matt D’Elia’s world is like a post-Charlie Kaufman absurd art film.

It’s like a really deep screen saver.

Review: Priest
Friday, May 13 by

It’s one thing if it’s just another bad horror action movie, but it’s sad how much work is wasted on this.

Cannes Review: Midnight In Paris
Wednesday, May 11 by

May be a love letter to Woody Allen’s favorite era and its greatest artists, but it’s superficial and dull.

Jumping The Broom
Review: Jumping The Broom
Friday, May 6 by

It’s not funny, and it’s obnoxious about trying to be funny.

Review: Something Borrowed
Friday, May 6 by

I can’t believe this derivative movie is based on a book.

The best kind of history lesson: one full of spin kicks.
