Hugo   Hugo Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  11/23/2011 7:14 AM EDT
Director Martin Scorsese takes his audience on a magical ride through a Paris train station in the adventurous tale Hugo.

A Dangerous Method Theatrical Review
A Dangerous Method   A Dangerous Method Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  11/22/2011 6:53 PM EDT
David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method is a film that grows on you the more you think about it; even considering the filmmaker's recent efforts, it is a picture that you keep waiting to get going, but it never quite does; however it nestles itself into your mind, where its oddness and intricacies continue to resonate long after the credits h...

(Nathan M Rose)  11/22/2011 8:17 AM EDT
Those adorable, crazy Muppets from the late Jim Henson are back on the silver screen this November with their latest film simply entitled, The Muppets.The story plot is simple and follows closely to real life. The ever-changing world has left the Muppets as just a memory and not relevant to modern day society. The Muppets have moved on to have norm... Read More

Like Crazy Theatrical Review
Like Crazy   Like Crazy Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  11/18/2011 9:27 AM EDT
How to screw up your life without really trying seems to be the theme of the film Like Crazy an inconceivable little film that's poorly written and delivered.  Even with heartthrobs Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones, the predictable unlikely plot just kills any chance for a dramatic winner. Writer director Drake Doremus centers his film on...

Melancholia Theatrical Review
Melancholia   Melancholia Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  11/18/2011 9:11 AM EDT
The film Melancholia by writer and director Lars von Trier stimulates the artistic part of the brain with sprawling landscape images, ominous tableaus and threatening visuals of a drifting planet. The film moves along playing out like the definition of its title. Melancholia: a mental condition and especially a manic-depressive condition characteri... Read More

Well the Twilight Saga has finally reached its ebb with the first half of Breaking Dawn that opens this weekend in theaters around the world.  Certainly expected to be earth shaking due to millions of young girls and twenty-something's rushing to the box-office to get a look at semi-nude Robert Pattenson making love to his comely co-star Krist...

Immortals Theatrical Review
Immortals   Immortals Theatrical Review
(Eric English)  11/11/2011 10:40 PM EDT
For the new film Immortals directed by Tarsem Singh, looks are everything. A movie can have a lousy screenplay and uninteresting characters, but as long as the costumes are immaculate and the production design superb, then little else matters. Immortals attempts at having as much machismo as 300 but comes up quite short and has about as much mythol... Read More
