10 Years Theatrical Review
10 Years   10 Years Theatrical Review
(Richard Augusztin)  09/24/2012 9:53 PM EST
Although 10 Years started off on the slower side for me, as the movie progressed I realized why; the heart of the film lies with the characters' shared back stories, and how each defies or yields to the expectations set for them long ago.  That's exactly what writer/director Jamie Linden has done.  If you don't have characters...

An enjoyable life drama Trouble with the Curve opens in theaters nationwide with a stellar cast playing likeable characters in this modern day sports story.  Drawing on an age old message concerning separated family members the film should hit a home run with those who have been dealing with the problem and need a nudge toward reconciliation.&...

The Sweeney Theatrical Review
The Sweeney   The Sweeney Theatrical Review
(Paul Kates)  09/20/2012 12:26 PM EST
TV in the UK in the 1970's may not have been unqualifiedly describable as brilliant, but one of the shining lights from that era was cop show "The Sweeney", which starred the late great John Thaw and Dennis Waterman as Regan and Carter. The Sweeney is now on the big screen, set in modern day London with Ray Winstone and Ben Drew playi... Read More

End of Watch   End of Watch Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  09/20/2012 12:05 PM EST
Crime dramas seem to be taking over the action entertainment scene as witnessed on both the big screen and television.  End of Watch however, happens to be one of the better ones.  Realistically presented, the movie gets into the nitty-gritty bowels of one of the most notorious crime areas in America, South Central Los Angeles.

Dredd Theatrical Review
Dredd   Dredd Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  09/19/2012 8:05 AM EST
Back in the 90's a movie was made called Judge Dredd. Based off the UK comic of the same name, it starred Sylvester Stallone as the title character. But that is not what we're going to discuss here. What we will review is the much better adaptation that hits theaters September 21. It stars Karl Urban, Lena Headey, and Olivia Thirlby. Simply... Read More

Arbitrage Theatrical Review
Arbitrage   Arbitrage Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  09/13/2012 2:17 PM EST
Packed with intrigue and very tense moments, Arbitrage makes its way into movie theaters this weekend. You may have seen similar stories as the Arbitrage script certainly isn't the most original plot that's come to the big screen. But, the performances, directing and cinematography make the film a nice piece of entertainment. If you haven't had you... Read More

For a Good Time, Call ...   For a Good Time, Call ... Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  09/13/2012 11:39 AM EST
Using sexuality in a comedy has stimulated a wave of movie making but has it gone too far?  Using every expletive possible from today's amoral vocabulary For a Good Time, Call… opens in theaters with an attempt to titillate and shock audiences.  Well it does the latter for sure, but for the most part it's the ladies who are taking ...
