list_stooges_66

Review: The Three Stooges

Funny and faithful
The Farrelly Brothers' Three Stooges pastiche, while not poifect, is funny and faithful, recreating slap-shtick (and sound effects!) and adding sharp one-liners.

list_man_66

Review: Think Like A Man

Cleverer than your average rom-com
I guess you can never judge a book by its cover, even if it is Steve Harvey's obnoxiously titled Act like a Lady, Think like a Man.

list_burn_66

Review: Burn

BURN takes on Detroit
In case you haven't heard, Detroit is in shambles — 39 percent unemployment, 50 percent illiteracy.

list_revision_66

Review: The Revisionaries

Setting the bar
Here's a scary thought: Texas and its massive purchasing power set the standard for which school textbooks are used across the country.
By: CHRIS FARAONE  |  April 24, 2012

list_dish_66

Review: The Dish & the Spoon

Chance indie encounters
Dumped by her husband, an enraged young woman, Rose (Greta Gerwig), drives around coastal towns in the Delaware winter swearing revenge against her straying spouse and an ill fate for the gal who lured him away.

list_lady_66

Review: The Lady

The life of Aung San Suu Kyi falls prey to Luc Besson's filmmaking
In addition to making dumb action flicks, Luc Besson has another hobby — turning the lives of valiant women into mediocre movies.

list_woman_66

Review: Woman Thou Art Loosed: On the 7th Day

Wound tight
Kari Ames (Sharon Leal) has it all: a handsome professor husband (Blair Underwood), an adorable six-year-old (Zoe Carter), and a sweet home in New Orleans' Garden District.
By: ANN LEWINSON  |  April 11, 2012

list_blue_66

Review: Blue Like Jazz

Out of tune
A faith-based film directed by Christian recording artist Steve Taylor, adapted by Taylor and Donald Miller from the latter's 2003 memoir, this micro-budgeted indie tries to appeal to everyone by not offending anyone . . . except those who like movies.

list_comic_66

Review: Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope

Comic Con is still geeky -- and awesome
A rose-hued ode to fanboy-dom, Comic-Con doesn't even try to scratch the surface of the world's largest geek meet-up.

list_hipsters_66

Review: Hipsters

Nice try, Russian musical
The first Russian musical in half a century, Valery Todorovsky's Hipsters gets rubles for trying, but what's on screen is thin and obvious, the characters one-dimensional, the musical numbers and satire vapid.

list_pope_66

Review: We Have a Pope

We have a dud
That College of Cardinals, what crazy guys.
By: PETER KEOUGH  |  April 10, 2012



list_cabin_66

Review: The Cabin in the Woods

Down the rabbit hole -- er, cabin
Youth will be served — as victims — in three movies in the theaters this week (four if you include the re-release of Titanic in 3D): The Hunger Games, Bully, and The Cabin in the Woods, the last being the most ingenious, entertaining, and sadistic.
By: PETER KEOUGH  |  April 12, 2012

list_bully_66

Review: Bully

Stuck in the schoolyard
The MPAA claims to have given Lee Hirsch's well-intended but disappointingly perfunctory documentary about the bullying epidemic an "R" rating because of a couple of common expletives.
By: PETER KEOUGH  |  April 12, 2012

list_goon_66

Review: Goon

Ode to the brawl
A Slapshot-worshipping, proudly raunchy ode to hockey's enforcers, Goon repeats a mock-poetic motif of blood and teeth wafting slo-mo towards the ice.
By: BETSY SHERMAN  |  April 12, 2012

list_life3_66

Review: L!fe Happens

Not much happening in L!fe Happens
In the opening scene of Kat Coiro's comedy, roommates Kim (Krysten Ritter) and Deena (Kate Bosworth), eager one-night stands waiting in their beds, both reach for a condom in the communal stash. But only one remains, and Deena grabs it.
By: PETER KEOUGH  |  April 11, 2012

list_detention_66

Review: Detention

The Breakfast Club meets Scream 2
A knife-wielding maniac plots his exploits off of a popular slasher film.   If you were to call out Joseph Kahn for unabashedly ripping this plot straight from Scream 2 , he'd probably take it as a compliment.
By: MICHAEL C. WALSH  |  April 12, 2012



list_reunion_66

Review: American Reunion

The Pie returns
Just as predictable and appetizing as Jason Biggs's penis in a pie, the newest addition to the raunchy American Pie franchise comes to audiences half-baked by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg.

LosingControl film review

Review: Losing Control

Valerie Weiss's locally made film
Bostonians have celebrated the city's rebirth as a shooting location for filmmakers. Had they endured Valerie Weiss's locally made Losing Control , I suspect most would welcome another molasses disaster.

Review ThinIce

Review: Thin Ice

A little bit of this and that
Brilliantly original in Thirteen Conversations About One Thing (2001), Jill Sprecher and her co-writer sister Karen seem to have gone through a card file of used ideas to cobble together this black comedy.
By: PETER KEOUGH  |  April 03, 2012

ThePruittIgoe Myth

Review: The Pruitt-Igoe Myth

On the sabotage of the American dream
The Pruitt-Igoe projects in St. Louis were supposed to be a means for poor farmers and field workers to find big-city opportunities.

JiroDreams ofSushi

Review: Jiro Dreams of Sushi

A quest to sushi chefdom
Eighty-five-year-old Jiro, with his unchanging expression and bald pate, resembles a wizened turtle. Leaving home at age 9 and forced to fend for himself, he would become the world's greatest sushi chef.
