The Perils of Motherhood

This may sound like a joke to anyone who's seen Mommie Dearest (and believes what they've seen), but legendary hanger-hater Joan Crawford won her Oscar for playing a woman who surely has to be among the saintliest of silver screen single mothers.

In Mildred Pierce (1945), Crawford plays the titular heroine, a California divorcee struggling to make ends meet and raise a couple of daughters. One of those girls,...


Kung Ow Kickin’

Sometimes, life is simple. If you don’t like beef, don’t order a rib-eye. If you don’t like stale, recycled jokes, don’t watch CBS sitcoms. If you don’t like action movies, avoid The Raid: Redemption like a television-phobic vegan would avoid the stuff mentioned above.

Writer/director Gareth Evans, who admittedly did much more to earn the latter half of his hyphened title than the former, delivers what is...


Camp Crystal Fake-Out

What’s funny is that writer Joss Whedon and writer/director Drew Goddard are going to get praised for how original The Cabin in the Woods is.

Two Days, One Night

This harrowing, heartbreaking tale is a parable for how the poor live now.

GRADE
A-

Reader Recommends

Mr. Turner

A spectacularly crafted piece that transcends its boring genre.

GRADE
A

Kingsman: The Secret Service

A gleefully cheeky action-comedy that nearly perfectly sends up 007.

GRADE
B

On DVD: Birdman

A delirously fun satirical send up of artistic pretension. 

GRADE
B+

On DVD: The Theory of Everything

"Out of this world" performances buoy a sub-par script.

GRADE
B+

Jupiter Ascending

Gleefully stupid, gloriously silly, this is a throwback to serialized sci-fi escapism.

GRADE
A-

Zero Motivation

This Israeli comedy about military service is a mixed bag.

GRADE
C+

Project Almanac

An impossibly dumb movie about shallow morons and time travel.
