Movie Review: ‘A Haunted House 2’

haunted house 2

 | Apr 18, 2014

Imagine a Venn diagram charting three qualities: silly, gross and dumb. At the point where they overlap, you will find the fright film spoof "A Haunted House 2," a scattershot, anything-goes affair that's unapologetically stupid. Proudly stupid. Aggressively stupid. The film is writer-star Marlon Wayans' take on suburban ghost stories. Putting himself, a black man, at the center of that usually lily-white genre g... more

Conviction is the word that keeps coming to mind in watching "Heaven Is for Real," the latest faith-based film to debut this Passover-Easter season.

If the singularity — when artificial intelligence surpasses human smarts — is indeed coming, at least it has decent taste in movie star avatars. First-time director Wally Pfister's "Transcendence" isn't so much the "Him" to Spike Jonze's "Her" as it's a more dystopian vision of the meeting of hum... more

Movie Review: ‘The Railway Man’

Associated Press | Apr 14, 2014

There are, of course, different ways to make war movies. Some are sweeping, some more intimate. Some are visceral and raw, and some take a more understated approach. There are moments that "The Railway Man," starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman and directed by Jonathan Teplitzky , feels like a period TV drama — slow, subtle, a bit distant — but that doesn't detract from the ultimate power of its story, whic... more
