"Long, cheesy political monologues and crucifies the Lincoln legacy. What a torture! Director Steven Spielberg and screenwriter Tony Kushner turn the hallowed figure of Abraham Lincoln into a dreary sop. "
"Skyfall keeps mocking 007 as old and out-of-touch. He goes unshaven and fails his physical! The ice-cold erotic charge of an immaculately groomed Bond is dead. Fleming's 'blunt instrument' has bad knees. He's one of us now. "
Chasing Mavericks (2012)
Alex Cross (2012)
The Master (2012)
The Possession (2012)
"As Fox Mulder's poster proclaimed, "The tooth is out there" applies here, or is that the leap-off for the sequel? It's scary and real. I know two people with similar experiences with spirits contained in non-living objects. "
Killer Joe (2012)
The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
"Nolan created a nihilist anthem. He dumped Batman gadgetry. Makes every past superhero movie look like a boy's backyard staging of Star Wars. Bane takes the movie. Nolan plays to Bale's need to get badly beaten up. "
The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
Magic Mike (2012)
To Rome with Love (2012)
Rock of Ages (2012)
"Fassbender's David is the film's centerpiece. Rapace plays the Hollywood girlfriend role instead of a steely protagonist on a messianic journey. Theron always commits fully to every character she plays. "
Migrating Forms (2000)
"With striking dream sequences, seedy black-and-white photography, and haunting sex scenes, Migrating Forms is a clinical portrait of humanity in a cage. "
Back Against the Wall (2000)
"A masterpiece of urban dread, relationships, and identity crisis."
"Though it was made on a shoestring, Expiration offers imaginative and soulful use of digital video."
