I've always liked Robert Downey Jr., even when personal exploits such as drug use and run-ins with the law threatened to kill not only his career, but the actor himself. Downey has since turned his life around and has slowly and quietly been rebuilding his acting resume. Consider the resurrection c... [More]

Zombie movies have enjoyed a renaissance, or reanimation if you will, in recent years thanks in large part to the British import "28 Days Later."

David Fincher has the market cornered on being stylishly creepy. With movies like "Se7en" and "Panic Room" to his credit, the director can turn out a taut genre film and then elevate it by layering the movie with his distinctive directorial style.

Ahh, the chick flick. What a dependable genre you are. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll fall in love and you'll often be watching a pretty mediocre movie. Therefore, dependably, just in time for Christmas comes "The Holiday," a pretty average romantic comedy that gets elevated to "not bad" status, t... [More]

"Fast Food Nation" has a lot working against it. Sure it's got an all-star cast and a quality director, but that's where the good vibes stop. Based on the nonfiction book of the same name by Eric Schlosser, which was a scathing expose on fast-food chains and the meat-packing plants that supply the n... [More]

Once in a generation the rock gods descend from their heaven and swing the mighty Scepter of Rock to crown a new king. Who could have guessed that the heir apparent to the throne would be a couple of dumpy, middle-aged white guys calling themselves Tenacious D. Behold the rock duo of actors/musicia... [More]

From white-knuckle, blood-and-guts director Ridley Scott and rough-and-tumble actor Russell Crowe, the duo that brought you the slash-and-smash epic "Gladiator," have teamed up again to bring you - -a romantic comedy about a vineyard in France?! Sure, why not? The result is the odd little film "A G... [More]
