I saw "Our Idiot Brother" this week. At least, I think I did. I remember buying the ticket - yes, I have the stub to prove it. I remember driving home. In between, I seem to remember some pictures moving, but that's about as much of an impact as the movie makes. The protagonist, if he can be called that, is an organic farmer so perhaps it makes sense that this movie leaves virtually no footprint. ...
Lo and behold, there are reasons to go to the movies this fall. After one of the worst summer seasons in memory, a veritable slew of worthwhile movies hits wide and limited release over the next few months.
"Conan the Barbarian" is a movie without fear. It isn't afraid to exploit its actors, it isn't afraid of being too violent and it certainly isn't afraid of offending someone.
The young cast members of "Glee" recently completed a concert tour, and now we get some limited chances to see their vacation slideshow. Although, I guess these days it would be their vacation vlog.
Haven't we seen a raunchy, stoner comedy with some action sequences and slapstick thrown in? Yes. Yes, we have. "30 Minutes or Less" is the latest in the endless series of guy movies that use foul language and genitals for most of their jokes. If that reaction seems unfair, maybe it's because I'm still suffering from the drill bit hangover that has knocked me around since I saw the 40-year old funny people in the ...
"Rise of the Planet of the Apes" might be the best of this summer's blockbusters, which no one in the world saw coming.
"The Change-Up" is a body switch comedy. For anyone, say, 30 years of age or older, that statement alone might be enough to make you stay away.
"Cowboys & Aliens" is the most efficient movie title I've encountered in quite some time. In just three words, it summarizes the entire plot. "Cowboys & Aliens" consists solely of some cowboy characters who do what we expect movie cowboys to do - ride horses, punch each other, shoot at people, spit, etc.; and alien characters who do what movie aliens usually do - fly spaceships, abduct people, snarl, drip mucus, etc. Both groups of characters offer ...
The "Smurfs" television series first aired in the U.S. in 1981. Since I graduated in the late '80s, I supposed I should feel nostalgic about a Smurfs movie.
The Year 2011 is more than half over, and the state of the movies is just as troubling as the state of the union.
All hail Stephen J. Anderson and Don Hall, the co-directors of "Winnie the Pooh." Just as it seemed almost impossible that "Deathly Hallows II" would be as good as we hoped, I thought it impossible that someone could bring the Winnie the Pooh franchise up to date with 2011 without losing the earnest, innocent spirit that made many of us love the silly old bear many years ago. Yet that's exactly what they have done. ...
True landmark events are hard to come by in the world of movies, an art form dominated by disposable entertainment.
Just about everyone has had a boss who made their lives miserable, so we can all relate to this summer's darkest but funniest comedy.
Hollywood's "Diversity in Summer" strategy continues with the release of "Larry Crowne," a romantic dramedy about middle-aged characters, which should provide very welcome counterprogramming to this week's other big release, the obnoxious, idiotic "Transformers: Dark of the Moon."
Pixar, the studio that brought us the "Toy Story" movies, "Finding Nemo," "Ratatouille," etc., has never released a "bad" movie. "Cars 2" doesn't change that.
"Mayan Blue" is an atypical Georgia film. Most of the crew either come from or live in North Georgia, yet the film was shot entirely in Guatemala and features an abundance of breathtaking underwater cinematography.
Sandwiched among the usual superheroes and science-fiction epics comes a very odd summer tentpole release, an extravagant, big budget adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's literary masterpiece, "The Great Gatsby," directed by Baz Luhrmann ("Moulin Rouge!", "Romeo + Juliet") and in 3-D.
Last week we looked at the upcoming movies for summer 2013 in the action and drama categories. This week, we finish the season's preview lineup with a peek at family flicks and movies to make us laugh.
