  • 'Saugatuck' spoof misses the mark

    French comedy captures goofy, wild spirit of 'Girls'
    At the outset of the breezily comic French film "Macaroni and Cheese" ("Les Coquillettes"), three girlfriends sit around a Parisian apartment one night. Drinking and smoking cigarettes (and cooking up some macaroni and cheese), they recount their...
  • 'Fresh Dressed' documentary explores hip-hop fashion through the years

    Long before Jay Z was rapping about fashion designer Tom Ford, Pharrell Williams was pitching for Chanel or Kanye West was a front-row fixture at Givenchy, kids were customizing jean jackets with spray paint and accessorizing shell-toed Adidas shoes...

     Are there Oscars for dogs? Carlos is the evocative star of 'Max'
    Co-writer and director Boaz Yakin's "Max" pulls the Lassie story out of the 1950s and plants it squarely in post-9/11 America. Marine Kyle Wincott (Robbie Amell) is a specialist working in the Middle East with Max, a German shepherd sniffing out weapons...
  • 'Ted 2' is overstuffed and absurd but wickedly funny

    One joke in "Ted 2" potentially offends women, African Americans, couples struggling with infertility, sufferers of blood disorders, people who make medical shelving and the Kardashians. I laughed so hard at it that I waited for security to emerge from...
  • 'Big Game' runs amok with outsized acting and eccentric cliffhangers

    'Big Game' runs amok with outsized acting and eccentric cliffhangers
    Renny Harlin lives! He didn't direct "Big Game" (and no, he's not dead), but the operatic nuttiness of Harlin's "Cliffhanger"-era action films is all over fellow Finn Jalmari Helander's B-movie throwback, a preposterous tale partnering an American...
  • 'The Tribe' an unusual, powerful look at criminality

    'The Tribe' an unusual, powerful look at criminality
    There's nothing like "The Tribe," the astounding debut feature from Ukrainian writer-director Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy about a mob operating within a crumbling school for the deaf. One need not read it as a metaphor for the director's homeland to...
  • Odd Obsession Video takes retro goods to new home in Bucktown

    Odd Obsession Video takes retro goods to new home in Bucktown
    Walk inside the new home of Odd Obsession Video, five doors up from its previous Milwaukee Avenue residence in Bucktown, and you're atmospherically clobbered by proof of a pre-Netflix era in film consumption. The soundtrack of "The Fly II," played on...
  • James Horner's music, James Cameron's film visions intertwined

    James Horner's music, James Cameron's film visions intertwined
    James Horner's "My Heart Will Go On" added to "Titanic's" emotional punch, sent singer Celine Dion to the top of the music charts and won an Academy Award. And initially, "Titanic" director James Cameron didn't want it. "You wouldn't put a song at the...
  • An Oscar recognizing stunts? Jack Gill urges academy action

     An Oscar recognizing stunts? Jack Gill urges academy action
    If you need to jump a car across a chasm, Jack Gill can tell you how. If you have to drive a motorcycle through a wall of flame or fall from a 12-story window, he's your guy. Over the course of his 40-year career performing and orchestrating stunts in...
  • 'The Yes Men Are Revolting' review: Climate change agitators

     'The Yes Men Are Revolting' review: Climate change agitators
    The further adventures of Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno — not that those are necessarily their real names — are chronicled in "The Yes Men Are Revolting." The prankster activists here turn their imaginative shaming schemes toward those...
