Awful, Not Full of Awe

 

<p>Awesome, gob-smacking visuals make Sucker Punch worth seeing more than the story behind main character Baby Doll (played by Emily Browning). </p> Rope-a-Dopey

The tagline for Sucker Punch is “You will be unprepared.” Eh, not so much. Every trailer for the film showed copious slow-motion sequences of girls clothed as if nerd fetishists established a global dress code. The near-dialogue-free previews gave little-to-no impression as to how the hell these seemingly disconnected visual sequences, ripped from a hardcore gamer’s wet dreams, possibly fit under one narrative...


<p>Things are not alright, alright, alright for McConaughey in the familiar but stylish The Lincoln Lawyer. </p> L.A. Law

Based on the novel by Michael Connelly, The Lincoln Lawyer is one loud, swaggering showoff of a thriller. It is well-acted and decently written … but there's something about director Brad Furman's approach that invites us to ignore all of that and just revel in the surface excitement. Bursting at the seams with flashy photography, attractive people and the usual courtroom dramatics, this movie would probably feel...

<p>Cedar Rapids is an ode to the salesman, something star Ed Helms (right) of “The Office” fame knows how to play well. </p> What Happens in Iowa…

Just as Glengarry Glen Ross was for real estate agents, director Miguel Arteta's Cedar Rapids is an ode to the desperate, lonely life of the insurance salesman. Of course, there are a lot more jokes here than in David Mamet’s play, but there’s no avoiding that big melancholic heart beating at the center. And the feeling of defeat is easily sensed around these lively, ordinary people as they do their best to get...
