Review: Battleship

Review: Battleship

Why not?
Hasbro's Transformers have made a mint; why not make a movie out of Battleship ?
By: ANN LEWINSON  |  May 18, 2012

Review: Darling Companion

Review: Darling Companion

Pedestrian and insulting
As pedestrian as a stroll through the dog park, Lawrence Kasdan's latest (and worst) film is both insulting and inconsequential.

Review:GodBlessAmerica

Review: God Bless America

Bobcat Goldthwait tackles vapid celebrity culture
The latest dark comedy from Bobcat Goldthwait tackles both vapid celebrity culture ( i.e. , Paris Hilton, the Kardashians, and American Idol ) and the indignity of being an office drone.

Review: Mansome

Review: Mansome

Morgan Spurlock's latest documentary
Morgan Spurlock's latest nonthreatening documentary fails to find much point in its subject: men's grooming.

FilmReview:TheDictator

Review: The Dictator

Surprisingly sweet
Though his PR campaign might suggest otherwise, Sacha Baron Cohen has actually made (with director Larry Charles) a sweet movie, not unlike Charlie Chaplin's The Great Dictator , if less sentimental.

ShortTakes:The Hunter

Review: The Hunter

Weird and motley
Apparently extinct since the 1930s, the Tasmanian Tiger resembled an uncanny assortment of mismatched parts from other animals. Daniel Nettheim's film is equally weird and motley.

Review:WhatToExpectWhenYou'reExpecting

What to Expect When You're Expecting

Expect a lot of silliness
What should you expect from Hollywood's latest ensemble adaptation of a self-help book? In short, a lot of beautiful starlets — Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Cameron Diaz, and Anna Kendrick among them — joking about farting, circumcision, unintentional urination, and any other bodily functions that can be "milked" for a laugh.

Film Review: Girl in Progress

Review: Girl in Progress

Patricia Riggen's adolescent dramedy
As rites of passage go, Girl in Progress is a step backward for the genre.

ShortTake: Surviving Progress

Review: Surviving Progress

How mankind has gone wrong
Despite prestigious talking heads like Margaret Atwood, Jane Goodall, and Stephen Hawking, there is nothing new here beyond what every conscientious liberal already knows is wrong with the world.

ShortTakes:GoodbyeFirstLove

Review: Goodbye First Love

Self-destructive passion
The autobiographical third feature from French director Mia Hansen-Løve limns the ecstasy and tumult of youthful, sometimes self-destructive passion.

ShortTakes:SoundOfMyVoice

Review: Sound of My Voice

Audacious premises
You've got to hand it to Brit Marling when it comes to audacious premises, both in Another Earth (in which she starred and co-wrote with director Mike Cahill), and in this high concept sci-fi head-scratcher, in which she also stars and co-wrote with director Zal Batmanglij.

DarkShadows

Review: Dark Shadows

Tim Burton's best film since Ed Wood
By the time Dark Shadows gets to the opening credits, it is already Tim Burton's best film since Ed Wood , but then I've always had a soft spot for the Moody Blues' "Nights in White Satin."
By: PETER KEOUGH  |  May 11, 2012

ShortTakes:Elles

Review: Elles

Dubious and exploitative
How did the Polish filmmaker Malgoska Szumowska dupe the classy Juliette Binoche to participate in such a dubious, exploitative film?
By: GERALD PEARY  |  May 08, 2012

ShortTakes:FirstPosition

Review: First Position

Bess Kargman's documentary
While not the most probing look at rising stars, Bess Kargman's documentary focuses on six aspiring contestants preparing for the prestigious Youth America Grand Prix competition (a proven entry point into the world of professional ballet) who demonstrate dazzling talent.

ShortTakes: Headhunters

Review: Headhunters

Slick entertainment
Roger (Aksel Hennie) is an Oslo yuppie with a gorgeous, blonde wife, a top-drawer job as a corporate headhunter, and a lucrative side employment stealing fancy paintings.
By: GERALD PEARY  |  May 08, 2012

ShortTakes:OnceUponATime

Review: Once Upon a Time in Anatolia

Driving through the wasteland
In Nuri Bilge Ceylan's minimalist "Eastern," the Leone-esque title seems ironic, as a team of bumbling investigators spend hours driving through the Anatolian wasteland searching for the grave of a murder victim.
By: PETER KEOUGH  |  May 08, 2012



ShortTake:NotAFilm

Review: This Is Not A Film

Artistic provocation
It can't be a film, because the acclaimed director Jafar Panahi ( The Circle , etc.) has been ordered not to make any by the Iranian theocrats who have also sentenced the dissident filmmaker to an upcoming jail sentence.
By: GERALD PEARY  |  May 01, 2012

5yearengagement

Review: The Five-Year Engagement


Nicholas Stoller's inventive, funny, and sometimes subversive romantic comedy won't revive that benighted genre, but it does offer hope.

MarveltheAvengers

Review: Marvel's The Avengers

Awkward first steps
Even for a hard-ass like Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), head of the ultra-secret S.H.I.E.L.D agency, getting a billionaire genius in a metal suit, a scientist with a bad temper, a cryogenically preserved WWII warrior, a Norse god, and two secret agents (how did they get in?) to play nicely together can take a while.
By: PETER KEOUGH  |  May 06, 2012

short take: Safe

Review: Safe

A lot of blood
There actually is a safe in Boaz Yakin's Safe , but you have to wade through a lot of blood to get there, and then more after that.
By: PETER KEOUGH  |  May 01, 2012

ExoticMarigoldHotel

Review: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

A pleasant diversion
Filled with Indian (and British) clichés, it is nonetheless a pleasant diversion that doesn't involve special effects or 3D glasses.
