"The Master" is one of those big, daunting, challenging movies that at its most successful is just going to make you feel uncomfortable. Director Paul Thomas Anderson can be a little full of himself, but to his credit he's kinda earned it. This is a movie with a handful of great, great scenes, three... [More]

The Academy Awards are glitzy, glamorous and really, really long. In order to break down the show I assembled a crack team of pop culture aficionados who offered up their real-time analysis of the Oscars telecast. Forming the roundtable were myself, power couple Brian and Erin Byrne, the lovely and... [More]

  When “The Book of Mormon” took Broadway by storm, everyone seemed a little surprised that the Tony Awards were swept by those “South Park” guys. The reality is that anyone who watched that racy little animated show knew that its creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone we... [More]

  This time of year always leaves me feeling like a beaten puppy. So many bad movies come out between Christmas and the Oscars that I’m starting to reflexively cringe whenever lights begin to dim. It can be so ugly that watching a movie that is simply not terrible feels like a tremendou... [More]

Ben Affleck's career makeover from tabloid fodder to top-shelf director has been impressive. "Argo" has been his coronation and even though he got snubbed for a Best Director Oscar nomination, he still might get the last laugh as his movie has a legitimate shot of sneaking in and grabbing the Best P...

The last few weeks at the megaplex have been a veritable parade of aging action stars. First came Arnold Schwarzenegger with “The Last Stand,” then Sylvester Stallone with “Bullet to the Head” and now we have Bruce Willis with “A Good Day to Die Hard.” With all o... [More]

We seem to be averaging about one decent sci-fi flick a year and "Oblivion" looks to be the early favorite to be the entry for 2013.  I can see some similarities to "The Matrix" lurking behind the "reality is not as it seems" subtext here, but more than anything it just looks really cool. ...

I was looking back at the Best Picture nominees from last year and I was reminded how lousy a year 2011 was for movies. Thankfully, 2012 was much, much better, to the point that it looks positively transcendent when compared with 2011 (and a fairly mediocre 2010, just to pile on). The field is so s... [More]

The James Bond movie franchise may be 50 years old but with the latest film “Skyfall” the old Brit is as good as he’s ever been. Daniel Craig wears the tuxedo as well as anyone ever has and this time around he’s got a villain in the form of Javier Bardem who makes as worthy a... [More]

 Something interesting occurred while I was watching the Steven Segal, Steve Austin action flick “Maximum Conviction.” Don’t worry; it didn’t happen in the movie itself. The interesting occurrence was the realization that they just don’t make action heroes like th... [More]
