    2014
    It's with heavy sadness, not pride, that I review Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's North Korean farce.

  • Movie Review: 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies'

    2014
    This movie will inevitably go down as an unneeded, unloved gratuity, a trilogy, like the second "Star Wars" run, to write off as overkill.

Oscar Season Starts With a Game of Musical Chairs

george clooney gravity

NEW YORK - The first act of the Oscar season is playing out like an episode of "Survivor." Several anticipated films planned to be released in the heart of awards season have picked up stakes and moved to 2014. Changes often happen in the highly contentious fall movie season, but rarely has there been an exodus like this. Most recently, George Clooney's World War II drama "The Monuments Men," previously dated for Dec. 18, was moved by Sony to early next year, after the end-of-year eligibility cutoff. Earlier postponed was Bennett Miller's brother drama "Foxcatcher," with Channing Tatum and Steve Carell; "Grace of Monaco," starring Nicole... more

George Clooney's 'Monuments Men' Pushed to 2014

NEW YORK - George Clooney's World War II drama "The Monuments Men" is being pushed to 2014 and out of the fall awards season. The movie will now be released in the first quarter of next year, instead of its planned release date of Dec. 18, a spokesman for Sony Pictures said Wednesday. "Monuments Men," which Clooney directed, co-wrote and stars in, had been expected to be among the top Oscar contenders. The film could still compete for awards next year, but the early-in-the-year positioning suggests Sony doesn't expect it to. Movies released early in the year - much less sought-after territory than the lucrative holiday movie-going season... more

Movie Review: 'The Counselor'

the counselor

Somewhere deep into "The Counselor," I found myself mesmerized by a metaphysical monologue from one of the characters - someone who sounded strikingly similar to my college philosophy professor - and trying to figure out exactly what he meant, and how it related to the person he was saying it to. But then I realized I had more basic questions, as in, wait, who IS this guy? Where did he come from? Did I miss something? If that kind of experience would bother you, be forewarned. There's lots and lots of talk in Ridley Scott's latest film, which boasts a high-powered cast and also the first original screenplay by author Cormac McCarthy. But... more

Movie Review: 'Chinese Zodiac'

zodiac jackie chan

"Chinese Zodiac" supposedly is Jackie Chan's last action movie. Certainly its epilogue - a compilation of some of his best stunts from the last 30 years while the end-credits roll - would seem to be proof. It's a breathtaking collection of the fearlessness that made Chan a star, first in Asia and later in Hollywood. That makes it doubly sad then that "Chinese Zodiac," directed / co-written by Chan and a sequel of sorts to the 1991 film "Armour of God 2: Operation Condor," is such an unimpressive send-off. Lackluster, slow and with only hints of the combo of kineticism, kung fu and comedy that was part of Chan's appeal in the first place, ... more

'Blue' Arrives With Praise, Whiff of Scandal

blue is the warmest color

NEW YORK - "Blue is the Warmest Color" arrives in the United States from France this week - and it's bringing along some baggage. On the plus side, the intense and soulful lesbian romance carries a Palme D'Or from Cannes, awarded not only to director Abdellatif Kechiche but, in a rare gesture, to his lead actresses, who received effusive praise from jury head Steven Spielberg. It's also done boffo box office in France. On the more complicated side, it carries a whiff of scandal - in the form of bitter post-Cannes remarks from the stars about their working conditions - most notably actress Lea Seydoux's complaint in an interview that Kech... more
