One of the most amazing films on music Metallica Through the Never comes to the IMAX screen and it's a musical experience to remember.  Not just for metalheads, this show bangs out messages while Metallica plays the groups most memorable titles.  I'm not a heavy metal follower, but in IMAX and 3D the experience blows your mind whi...

Shocking, relentless and suspenseful Prisoners opens in theaters this weekend with a story of abduction that's gut wrenching to the core.

The Family   The Family Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  09/12/2013 3:10 PM EST
A fine cast, a notable director and some very nice camerawork create Luc Besson's newest film The Family.  Delivering a lot of family angst mixed with a good measure of chaos the movie works its way into the kind of comedy that often takes a chunk out of the box-office.  Starring Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Tommy Lee Jones The F...

Riddick Theatrical Review
Riddick   Riddick Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  09/06/2013 8:24 AM EST
"Somewhere along the way I lost a step… gotta find that animal side again."Those words, croaked early in the film by Vin Diesel's titular antihero and bathed in metatextuality, sum up far more than the character's intentions. Riddick manages to salvage a franchise that faltered by adopting the strategy that A Good Day to Di... Read More

One of the most truly artistic films this year turns out to be foreign and in black and white, but the charming, beautiful, sweet and convincing story out shines anything else.  It's called The Artist and the Model with brilliant performances that draw you into a window of the past where World War II takes a pause and sparks a different kind o...
