(Chris Rebholz)  04/11/2012 12:01 PM EST
We Bought a Zoo is located at the intersection of Feel Good Road and Predictable Lane. Matt Damon saps it up as the father who means to do well by his two children after their mother passes, but is hounded by impossibly over-the-top government bureaucrats, teenage angst, and Scarlett Johansson. Scratch that, that last one is actually a good thing.&... Read More

(Chris Rebholz)  03/27/2012 10:41 AM EST
Casablanca is great. It's the quintessential Hollywood film; a classic example of the studio machine: fantastic acting, an artful directorial style, a sentimental score, and a story that will warm the many frozen rivers of your cold, cold heart.
