Review: Prom

Squeaky-clean group portrait

Review: Something Borrowed

 A numbing pattern

Thor list

Review: Thor

 Love blooms alongside the war
Not as much fun as Iron Man, Kenneth Branagh's take on Marvel's God of Thunder is nevertheless an electrically charged superhero romp while being less of an extended Avengers advertisement than Iron Man 2.

Review: Beautiful Darling

The isolating pursuit of fame

Review: Cave of Forgotten Dreams


So far, I think it's safe to say that nothing is better in 3D, except maybe Avatar and House of Wax.

ff list

Review: Fast Five

 Dumb fun, noisy neutral
In the 10 years since the F&F franchise first fired up, it has regularly spun out retreads of its tired premise, pitting the righteous against the heavy with a backdrop of car boosting, drag racing, and bum cheeks hanging out of hot pants.

rubber list

Review: Rubber

 Quentin Dupieux has something more malevolent, and meta, in mind
When a tire lifts itself from the desert sand of the West and rolls down the road to the sound of recorder music, it feels like one of those old Film Board of Canada shorts about the triumph of the spirit.

3 list

Review: Three

 A feel-good ending
The 2011 Boston LGBT Film Festival kicks off with what amounts to a classy TV-movie from Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) in which fortysomething Berlin professional couple Hanna (Sophie Rois) and Simon (Sebastian Schipper), both feeling the 20-year itch, fall in love with the same man (Devid Striesow).

Review: Cure For Pain: The Mark Sandman Story

Documentary about the late Morphine frontman
It's difficult to say whether anyone besides fans will be drawn to Robert G. Bralver & David Ferino's at times hagiographic documentary about the late Morphine frontman, who died on a concert stage in Palestrina, Italy, in 1999, at the age of 46.
