Movie Review: ‘A Most Wanted Man’

Sacramento Bee | Jul 28, 2014

Philip Seymour Hoffman's acting career showed a remarkable arc. Famous first for playing misfits -- culminating in his Oscar-winning turn as Truman Capote in "Capote" -- Hoffman, by his mid-40s, specialized in authority figures. The actor who won sympathy as an insecure porn-set gofer in "Boogie Nights" later intrigued as a charismatic cult leader in "The Master" and the complex games keeper in "The Hunger Games: Catching F... more

Movie Review: ‘Hercules'

LOS ANGELES (AP) — You'll have to say one thing for Brett Ratner's production of "Hercules": This movie has a sense of proportion. Running just over 90 minutes, the movie is often clunky, but at least it's fast and unpretentious. And its likable star, Dwayne Johnson , manages to murder legions without ever seeming sadistic.

Buffalo News | Jul 25, 2014

Shameless pandering has no "demo." You can, if you choose, snobbishly decry the blatantly calculated aim at a youth "demographic" in movies like "Transformers" and " 22 Jump Street."

This is a movie unlikely to draw anyone under 25 unless they're dragged into the theater b... more

Movie Review: ‘Lucy'

So let's start with the enticing premise of Luc Besson's "Lucy," starring Scarlett Johansson : Human beings only use 10 percent of their brain capacity. Imagine what it would be like if we could access all of it? Well, wow. It would be sort of like ... nothing new. Because, it turns out, in real life, humans pretty much DO use their whole brains. DARN! Now, we could choose to be annoyed that Besson starts with a total myth... more

Movie Review: ‘Wish I Was Here’

Associated Press | Jul 21, 2014

When Zach Braff took to Kickstarter to fund his new movie, "Wish I Was Here," he explained to fans where their money would go: It would ensure his creative control, allow him to cast the actors he wanted, and enable him to shoot in Los Angeles, rather than someplace cheaper. We can argue about whether these were worthy reasons to ask for $2 million (in fact, fans ultimately gave Braff more than ... more
