Setting aside the clunky and cumbersome title, “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints” is a beautifully sparse and moving film. Writer and director David Lowery made a splash with this movie at the Sundance Film Festival and has proven himself as a filmmaker worth keeping an eye on. Lowery is... [More]

“Closed Circuit” fancies itself as a gripping, thought-provoking political thriller/courtroom drama. Unfortunately, most of the time it is more bland than gripping, and its high-minded idealism is really kind of absurd if you spend much time thinking about it. At its best this movie fee... [More]

When Dek, my esteemed editor, called me up to ask if I'd ever be writing for him again I said yeah, but I didn't know what about. He was all, "What about this new show, "Orange and Black" or something like that? I think it's about the OSU Cowboys but with lesbians, right? Tell me why I should watch ... [More]

Coming-of-age movies have reached the point where they’ve almost become indistinguishable from one another.

Sometimes if you put enough awesome in one place you’re pretty much guaranteed something great will happen. This is why I am high on “The Counselor” and its fantastic trailer. It’s directed by Ridley Scott working with a screenplay written by Cormac McCarthy (translation: it... [More]

Jim Carrey has a supporting role in “Kick-Ass 2” where he plays a gap-toothed, costumed vigilante who goes by the moniker Colonel Stars and Stripes. He’s pretty good in it and is nearly unrecognizable with some light prosthetic makeup and a thick Brooklyn accent. What is most int... [More]
