Young star proves her 'True Grit'

It is a joy to watch an actor embody a role with complete confidence and understanding of the character. You might think I'm referring to the stars and seasoned character actors in "True Grit," which include Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and Barry Pepper.

2010 Holiday Preview: A naughty and nice list

Hollywood definitely saved its best for last in 2010. No single movie looks to dominate the box office the way "Avatar" did last year, nor does any movie look poised to sweep the awards season (although "The Social Network" seems to be leading the pack for the moment).

'Black Swan' is no ugly duckling

I've never seen anything like "Black Swan," and I almost never get to say that.

Potter ‘Part 1’ pauses action, delivers heart

Haven't they toyed with us long enough? Isn't it time to bring the Harry Potter saga to an end?

‘Due Date’ swings hard, strikes out

In theory, the New York Yankees should win the World Series every year. Their total payroll is more than double that of 21 of the 29 other teams in Major League Baseball, and over $40 million more than the team with the second highest payroll. Which means every year they field more talent than each of their competitors. It also means their fans expect them to be perfect.

‘Hornets Nest’ a fitting end to trilogy

One of the most exciting movie events of the decade is entering its endgame this month. The last chapter of the Millenium trilogy, "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest," hits limited theatrical release this week and will hopefully spread out over the coming weeks.

‘Jackass 3D’ is the worst movie ever

Sitting through "Jackass 3D" was the worst 90 minutes I've spent in a movie theater. Hands down, no contest, ever. I can't imagine a more disgusting, stupid, pointless movie ever making it to mainstream theaters.

‘Red’ is ridiculous, campy fun with lots of action

It's fashionable these days to say that 40 is the new 30, 50 is the new 40, and so on. In "Red," however, 50 is still 50, 60 is still 60, and that's the whole point.

‘Let Me In’ a chilling adaptation

One of my greatest pet peeves is American remakes of great foreign films. I know there are people, probably plenty of you reading this, who simply don't enjoy reading subtitles. But I will never understand why it's better to watch an inferior remake just to avoid having to glance down to briefly read some dialogue.

'The Social Network' is worth friending

Because it doesn't already consume enough of our lives, Facebook will now take over movie theaters beginning this Friday. If the very idea of a Facebook movie makes you groan, believe me, I understand. That was my initial reaction, too.

Wall Street not a revealing investment

At first glance, Oliver Stone's "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" seems to be hitting the market at exactly the right moment. But the timing might not be perfect after all.
