Movie Review: 'And So It Goes'

and so it goes diane keaton michael douglas

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." But the exact same thing in reverse is going on in "And So It Goes" and its shamelessness quotient is just as high, if not higher. This is a movie unlikely to draw anyone under 25 unless they're dragged into the theater b... more

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.

There's a cheerful simplicity about the animated "Planes: Fire & Rescue." Contrast it with the chaotic, clanging "Transformers" movie, made for a slightly older preteen audience. The high-flying new Disney cartoon has a clearer story, more engaging characters, more lucid action scenes and jokes that actually raise a smile. The production was overseen by Pixar's head honcho John Lasseter , and it fe... more

Movie Review: ‘Sex Tape’

Associated Press | Jul 18, 2014

The high-concept comedies spawned by "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" need to start using birth control. Judd Apatow's landmark film rightfully ushered in a new era in comedy, but it has also inspired a now sizable cottage industry of thin movies ("The Hangover," ''The Five-Year Engagement," ''Bad Teacher," ''Horrible Bosses," ''The Other Woman") with concepts boasting good titles but shallow stories. Of these, only on... more
