Crude, rude, obnoxious and offensive are all accurate adjectives to describe Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.  As if the first film wasn't awful, yet funny enough, the second continues in the same vein of sophomoric frat humor.  While not quite as good as the first one, the sequel will remind viewers of all of the things they liked about...

Writer/Director Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) is known for his spy/police/private investigator stories with two males as the lead characters.  His writing is often funny, wry and, at times, sophomoric.  Luckily, his latest work, The Nice Guys, serves up more of this same formula that has worked so well for him in the past.Holland Marc...

While The Witch garnered critical acclaim when it debuted in theaters in February of this year, it was met with less than enthusiastic audience ratings.  After having viewed the movie, I have been contemplating it, and the more I separate myself from the film, the more I can see how it would be praised form a cine...

(Judith Raymer)  5/12/2016 11:02 AM EDT
I was a little apprehensive about tackling this one... having George Clooney and Julia Roberts in the same flick.  There are exceptions, but the good majority of their films are vehicles for box office draws.  Even their serious work can come off as a polished Hollywood tale wrapped with that film gift bow (read: guaranteed money maker).&...

Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games), Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook), and Robert DeNiro (The Intern) have teamed up several times on film in the last few years.  Their latest venture is a semi-true story about a down-on-her-luck single mother who invents a new way to mop the floor....

Everyone is talking about it… #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan.  Where do you fall on the spectrum, or do you not even care?  If you don't, you should, as Captain America: Civil War seems to be one of 2016's blockbusters. Garnering praise aplenty, movie goers will flock to the theaters to see it at least once in the next month and they won... Read More
