Review: Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters


From the occult-infested mind of Dead Snow director Tommy Wirkola comes another craptastic orgy of gore — one that's way better than it has any right to be.

film-movie43

Review: Movie 43


Don't subject yourself to this crap, which is credited to nine writers and 12 directors, among them Farrelly, Steven Brill (the auteur behind Adam Sandler's Little Nicky ), Steve Carr ( Paul Blart: Mall Cop ), and (sigh) Brett Ratner.

django_unchained_review

Review: Django Unchained

Spaghetti southern style
Tarantino reconfigures that classic American genre, the Western, setting his new film in the Deep South, creating what he terms a "Southern," while infusing it with the spaghetti sensibilities of Sergio Leone (director of Tarantino's favorite film, The Good, The Bad and the Ugly ) and, more so, the genre grit of that other Sergio, Corbucci (director of 1966's Django , naturally).

Review: Playing For Keeps


Gabriele Muccino's misogynistic family sports film stars Gerard Butler as has-been Scottish footie star George Dryer, a man who once "got more ass than a toilet seat," according to screenwriter Robbie Fox, who bends it like Beckham to present George as the willing victim of oversexed soccer moms making advances toward their kids' new coach.

Though Andrew Dominik shot his follow-up to 2007's The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford in N'awlins, it's a Boston movie through-and-through.

Review: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2


As vampire/teen heartthrob Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) embraces his bride, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), for the first time since she died (and awoke as a new member of the bloodsucking Cullen clan) while giving birth to the rapidly aging Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy), he smiles and says, "We're the same temperature finally."

Review: The Man With the Iron Fists


RZA's debut feature isn't just a kung-fu film, it's an abstract collection of everything he loves about the genre, from flat-voice acting to gruesome decapitations.

review_skyfall

Review: Skyfall

Blond on Bond
By the end of its perhaps overlong 145 minutes Skyfall has earned the franchise the right to yet another sequel, if not another 50 years.

flight_film_review

Review: Flight


If Whip Whitaker (Denzel Washington) could land a doomed plane and save the lives of almost all the passengers while in the midst of a coke- and booze-fueled bender, imagine how well he'd do if he was sober.
