When I first heard about Hot Tub Time Machine, I was a bit skeptical. Adam (John Cusack) has just been dumped; Lou (Rob Corddry) is a hopeless party animal; Craig (Craig Robinson) is a henpecked husband, and Jacob (Clark Duke) does nothing but play video games in his basement. But they get a chance to brighten their future by changing their past af... Read More

I feel like I know George Clooney because he always plays the same guy.  Okay, maybe that is not literally true -- see Burn after Reading -- but, just being realistic.   He plays the serious corporate bad-ass.  He is slick talking, sarcastic, and looks good in a suit.  You are drawn to his charisma only to be dashed on the ...

The Coen's, A Serious Man, packs a punch like a Kafka story – it is dark, the main character suffers, and there is no explanation or redemption. As it is well made, if that is your cup of tea, you will like it. The story takes place in the late 1960's where hapless professor, Larry Gopnik, finds his world falling apart. His wife annou...

I have to admit I was a bit suspicious of this from the start. In fact, I do respect the making of The Passion of Christ. It's a powerful story, and Gibson's brand of historical accuracy takes some guts to pull off. It is also important to be able to separate motive and intent from art; analyzing things without authorial intent is a valid a... Read More
