Fortunately, this loop ends

Looper's premise its smart, its execution not [meh]

Movie Reviews In 2072, it’s impossible to kill a person. Living people can be tracked and, when they’re no longer living, the authorities are alerted. Pity the mafia, which faces the prospect of not killing any

Robot & Frank

Thoughtful, well-acted and unique

Movie Reviews It’s hard to find a movie that’s more thoughtful, better acted or more unique than Robot and Frank. Simply put, it’s one of the best movies of the year, and one of the best science fiction films of all ti...

Dredd 3D

Karl Urban bangs down the gavel

Matt, I’m Only Dreaming

'Sleepwalk with Me' is hilarious [yay!]

Movie Reviews Mike Birbiglia has made something of a miracle. Sleepwalk with Me is hysterically funny, filled with good stand-up, sympathetic performances and characters we care about.

The Smiling Scoundrel

Stop Talking

If only the words in 'The Words' were good

Movie Reviews How bad is The Words? I’d gladly sit through Cosmopolis again than watch this vapid tale populated with bland souls. Seriously, what were the filmmakers thinking?

Cars, No Crashes

David Cronenberg misses again with 'Cosmopolis'

Movie Reviews If there’s one film director who can make audiences flee, it’s David Cronenberg. Anyone who watched Crash, his graphic tale of car crashes and sex, or his adaptation of William Burroughs’ Naked Lunch, k...
