Trouble with the Curve is a neat 'n tidy counterpoint to the much better film Moneyball, bemoaning the long lost art of baseball scouting over the cold, faceless statistics of major league number crunching. The movie's story offers gruff romanticism over game-changing mathematics. Family drama over closed door shake-ups. And a very differen... Read More

Warren Beatty's Dick Tracy is the bright, cheerful cousin to Tim Burton's Batman. When Tracy was released the year after Burton's film, it felt something like a repeat. (It didn't help that Danny Elfman scored both pictures.) But now, after over two decades of tortured heroes in dark films inspired by comics and graphic novels, Trac... Read More

(Chris Rebholz)  12/12/2012 9:06 AM EST
"The Odd Life of Timothy Green" forces an enormous amount of whimsy down the throat of its audience in the early moments of the picture, though it doesn't take very long to develop a taste for the sweet stuff. Heartfelt and genuinely magical, this Disney release is perfect for the family, touching on themes of parenthood for adults, while... Read More

The Apparition Blu-ray Review

(Chris Rebholz)  12/03/2012 10:47 AM EST
"The Apparition" contains less story than a Twilight film. In fact, the trailer on the Blu-ray for "The Apparition" is actually more of a movie than "The Apparition." A wildly incoherent effort that spends most of its running time avoiding its own plot, "The Apparition" is one of those major studio releases t... Read More

Cars is typically labeled Pixar's most divisive film, but it's actually Finding Nemo that draws the widest and most passionate range of responses. Still, the years have indeed been kinder to the film's surprisingly viable animation than its beached-whale script and, beloved or no, Finding Nemo isn't the ultimate Pixar experience it ...

The long list of PIXAR films being released in 3D now includes Oscar winner UP a family favorite that touches the heart and tickles the funny bone.  Released in a 5-Disc box set, the package includes a Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray Discs (2), DVD and Digital Copy just in time for Holiday giving.  If you already have a 3D set-up or have interest in ...

(Paul Kates)  11/26/2012 8:38 PM EST
This year may well go down as the year of the comic book hero in movie history; there has been a whole host of them. Still, it was no surprise that, among them, one of the most hotly anticipated comic book hero movies of the year was The Dark Knight Rises (TDKR), the last in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. Beginning in 2005 with&n... Read More
