    'Straw Dogs' review: You thought all remakes existed for a reason?
    ** (out of four) Forty years ago, Sam Peckinpah’s “Straw Dogs” brutally taught a pacifist (Dustin Hoffman) a lesson: When faced with no other option, you’ll be violent too! Now, at a time when absolutely no one doubts what human...

    Movie review: 'Straw Dogs'
    Writer-director Rod Lurie's bird-brained remake of "Straw Dogs" doesn't work on its own terms, and it can't hold a candle to the unruly, unstable merits of Sam Peckinpah's 1971 original. It's miscast, barely functional in terms of technique, stupid and...

    Fragrance: Sweet success
    In 1954, when Marilyn Monroe was asked what she wore in bed, she famously replied, "Why, Chanel No. 5, of course." And sales of the perfume skyrocketed. That was a free endorsement, back when there was such a thing. Hollywood and the fragrance industry...
  • Battleship

    Battleship
    Mr. Board was bored watching a movie based on a board game. Although I think it’s false to keep stating in reviews and press releases that this is based on the Hasboro game. It’s an alien invasion film with battleships. Other than missiles...

    'Battleship': Board game, bored viewers ✭ 1/2
    "Battleship"is not the first major motion picture to be based on a board game — who could forget 1985's benighted "Clue"? — but it is surely the most expensive. With every superhero more celebrated than Amazing-Man or The Chameleon already...
