Movie Review: ’The Giver’

LOS ANGELES (AP) — An agreeable young adult riff on Orwell — via "Logan's Run" — topped with the kind of magic-transformative baloney that passes for an ending in too many otherwise-fine Hollywood adventures, Phillip Noyce's "The Giver" greets a man-made Utopia with an eternal question: "If you can't feel, what's the point?" Lois Lowry's 1993 Newbery Medal-winning source novel has been substantially altered h... more

Movie Review: 'Let's Be Cops'

LOS ANGELES (AP) — At one point during "Let's Be Cops," actor Damon Wayans Jr . has a scene in which a huge naked man's groin is inches from his face.

Take one Oscar-winning British actress. Add an appealing supporting cast. Lather on the picturesque French countryside. Sprinkle liberally with gorgeous food shots, from bubbling, spicy Indian delicacies to perfectly composed French plates of pigeon and truffles. And then heap on a heavy serving of corn. What is it about recent food movies — Jon Favreau's "Chef," and now Lasse Hallstrom's "The Hundred-Foot Jou... more

into the storm movie

Movie Review: ‘Into the Storm’

"Into the Storm" is a movie that addresses the fearsome power of nature. Alas, it also addresses the fearsome power of a bad script to distract us from the fearsome power of nature. Add to that a set of cardboard characters, and what you have is a movie that should have dispensed with the humans and dialogue altogether, and been a documentary. If, of course, the storms were real. Which they aren't. The film, direc... more
