Movie Review: 'The Conjuring'

the conjuring movie

Haunted house movies only work if the people in the house are worth scaring. Sounds stupid, but it's true, although let's be honest: Real estate is inherently frightening. You put all that money in and only Satan knows if it'll turn out to be a decent investment, or if you'll be able to afford what it takes to repair any undisclosed matters of basement seepage. The quirks and creaks of an old house are always good for gallows humor or a cold shot of dread. As I write this the fridge in our new/old residence is softly moaning like a distant foghorn. Is it the way the appliance sits on a slightly askew kitchen floor? Is it demonic? When a r... more

Movie Review: 'Turbo'

turbo 1

LOS ANGELES - In delivering a film about a garden snail that dreams of winning the Indy 500, it's as if the makers of "Turbo" had been pressed to come up with the most extreme underdog tale they could think of. Or else animators really are running out of ideas for original new characters. An attractively designed but narratively challenged, one-note film, "Turbo" skews younger than the norm for big animated features these days and has limited appeal for little girls. "The sooner you accept the dull, miserable nature of your existence, the happier you'll be," worldly-wise snail Chet (Paul Giamatti) advises his younger brother Turbo (Ryan R... more

'Red' And 'RIPD' End Up in a Game of Chicken

ripd movie

NEW YORK - Scheduling the release of a summer movie isn't exactly a science. It clearly isn't an art, either. It's more akin to a contact sport: Seize the advantageous position, sustain as little damage as possible, and score. All of which makes this weekend's opening of both "Red 2" and "R.I.P.D." a little like sacking your own quarterback. Both films are action-thrillers. Both are about over-age law enforcers (in "R.I.P.D.," some are so old, they're dead). And both make a virtue of their, shall we say, mature stars. Those stars include Bruce Willis (58), Anthony Hopkins (75), John Malkovich (59) and Helen Mirren (67) in "Red 2" and Je... more

Animated Film "Turbo" Could Give Racing a Boost

turbo 2

Trapped in a mundane job at the tomato plant, Theo dreams of becoming a glamorous race car driver. He wants the fame and fortune of Indianapolis 500 winner Guy Gagne, but more than anything, Theo wants to go fast. The problem? Theo is a snail. That's the premise behind the DreamWorks Animation movie "Turbo" that opens Wednesday and features the Indianapolis 500. The idea, by director, co-writer and story creator David Soren, came from watching his young son's obsession with "all things fast" and an annoying snail infestation in his own front yard. "It's the juxtaposition of extreme slowness and speed all in my yard," Soren said in a te... more

Have Aurora, Newtown Affected Screen Violence?

call of duty ghosts 2

NEW YORK - It was a year ago this week that the sickening sound of gunfire rang out at a midnight screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" in Aurora, Colo. The mass shooting reverberated painfully in Hollywood, and how could it not? It happened at the movies. Five months later, the horrific massacre of first-graders at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., launched yet more reflection - about gun control, certainly, but also about entertainment content, particularly violent video games said to be favored by the killer. And yet, in the year since Aurora, seemingly little has overtly changed in the area of violence in entertainme... more
