Strap your six-gun to your waist, tie the string around your leg and ride over to see the movie Cowboys & Aliens a rip snorting account of a universe invasion.  Seriously now, there will be no guns allowed in the movie theatre, not even toy type.  If you want some action with great special effects that make a film come alive with awes...

Uday Hussein, eldest son of Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein, was allegedly known for torturing national athletes who failed to win.  He was known for kidnapping school girls off the streets of Baghdad and raping, and perhaps sometimes murdering them.  He was called a psychopath by Egyptian leader, Mubarak.  The story, The Devil's ...

What saves this remix from taking a nosedive into oblivion is the cast.  Friends With Benefits' Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake are the winners here who outdo Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher in their attempt to jazz up friendship with sex in No Strings Attached.  So if you haven't seen the latter, then don't miss Friends With Benefits...

So Captain America has finally arrived with all the red, white, and blue, or should I say black and blue.  This is the story of a puny outcast and how he becomes the hero of America, although at first he is treated as a side show attraction.  It is very interesting how the Director accomplished this -- as most movie superhero films usuall...

(Roger Longenbach)  07/14/2011 8:57 AM EST
As you may remember, I ripped apart the last Harry Potter movie that I reviewed (Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince).  Missing my opportunity to see Part 1 in the theatre, I had to jump at my chance to see the finale in the theater.  And I'm going to repeat what I tweeted shortly afterward here:  This movie is an emotional, a...

(Marco Duran)  07/10/2011 8:29 PM EST
Independent films rarely take on science-fiction.  Reason is because sci-fi films usually require lots of money for sets and effects.  On the other hand, having angsty conversations about your family is relatively cheap.  When the genre is tackled, I have often enjoyed the results mostly because they tend to be deconstructions or re-...

(Chris Rebholz)  07/08/2011 1:36 PM EST
A majority of the time when you attend a kids movie you have a general idea what to expect, lots of literal jokes involving bodily functions, weird faces, and an overabundance of physical comedy. Zookeeper, the new film starring Kevin James and Rosario Dawson is no exception.   James' character Griffin Keyes is your typical glass-half-full typ... Read More

There comes a time in everyone's life when their current employment makes them feel as if he/she wants to stay in bed that day and/or fantasize about plotting the demise of the person at work who makes their life miserable. This July Warner Bros and New Line Cinema film allows you to live out your fantasies with the new comedy, Horrible Bosses, sta... Read More

(Chris Rebholz)  07/04/2011 9:04 PM EST
The newest film from Tom Hanks is called Larry Crowne which is about a well-mannered middle aged man who finds himself the latest person on the unemployment line and what would at first seem to be a difficult transition winds up becoming a journey into a better life.   Larry Crowne (Hanks) is an employee of the fictional mega-store UMart. He i... Read More

(Nathan M Rose)  06/28/2011 9:23 AM EST
The phrase, "the third time is a charm" has never held more true than with this years' Paramount and Michael Bay's third Transformer outing: Transformers: Dark Side of The Moon.   Following the events of the first two films, we see Sam Witwicky as a college graduate having a hard time finding a job in society after being put ...
