  “Sniper: Reloaded” comes in as the fourth film in the “Sniper” franchise. You didn’t know there was such a thing as a “Sniper” franchise? Don’t feel too bad, before I watched it I didn’t either.   I only kinda, sorta remembered th... [More]

  “Seven Psychopaths” is one of those ambitious movies that is as demented, strange and unhinged as the title would suggest. Come for murder and mayhem, stay for the wry wit and the killer cast.   Also this week, a ho-hum animated movie that explores Dracula’s hospital... [More]

I remember clearly what it was like to be a 12-year-old boy and know that if they had let me make a movie at that age it would look an awful lot like “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.” The plot would have all the complexity and depth that could possibly be hatched up in the back of s... [More]

  A ridiculous amount of digital ink has been spilled over the polarizing HBO series “Girls.” It has been credited with being everything from a revelatory masterpiece to a crime against humanity. People feel very strongly about this show. But even after a full season and now two... [More]

  I wiled away many a Saturday afternoon watching old Godzilla movies on our local UHF station, so really you only have to say "Giant robots fight giant monsters" to get me excited. Throw in the impeccable nerd-cred of Guillermo del Toro and this is probably ranks as the summer movie I'm most ... [More]

Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena deliver what is basically the greatest episode of "Cops" ever with the documentary style police thriller "End of Watch" leading off the list of DVD releases this week.   Rounding out the week is a girlie comedy, a shockingly well-cast indie and a hea... [More]

“Broken City” is a completely forgettable film. It’s not a terrible movie; it features a solid cast and polished directing by Allen Hughes. It’s not all that good either. The script seems better suited for a Columbo mystery movie or an extended episode of “Law & Ord... [More]

Liam Neeson headlines this week's DVD releases with the sequel to his vengeance-fueled hit "Taken" aptly dubbed "Taken 2" (is it just me or would "Retaken" have been a better title?). ... [More]

“Zero Dark Thirty” is one of those rare, accomplished movies that can be enjoyed on many different levels. As entertainment, it is a top-notch procedural/thriller/action-flick. As history, it is a warts-and-all, blow-by-blow account of the CIA’s decade-long hunt for Osama bin Lade... [More]
