  • 'The Cabin in the Woods' review: Close to geek paradise

    'The Cabin in the Woods' review: Close to geek paradise
    ***1/2 (out of four) Wow; the ending of “The Cabin in the Woods” rewards patience like few movies rarely do. The crazy, bloody sequence practically epitomizes “give the audience what they want.” And the fanboy contingent that...
  • The Help

    The Help
    It has its heart in the right place. It has a great cast. It will get nominated for lots of awards. It’s an entertaining film, but very flawed. It’s the story of black maids in Mississippi in the ‘60s, working for rich white families...
  • The Rum Diary

    The Rum Diary
    I liked this movie, but it’s one of those rare films I like and can hardly recommend to my friends. You either have to be a fan of Hunter S. Thompson or madly in love with Johnny Depp, to really appreciate this. That being said, I was never that big...
  • 'The Cabin in the Woods'

    'The Cabin in the Woods'
    As suggested by the writing-producing involvement of genre icon Joss Whedon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), there's a bit more to this horror tale than it might first seem, though it lures a group of teens to the title cabin where terror awaits them....

    Reel Critics: 'Stooges' shows off its slapstick roots
    The Farrelly brothers are known for their offbeat comedies that challenge the limits of good taste. "Dumb & Dumber" and "There's Something About Mary" are their familiar big hits. But their current remake of"The Three Stooges"takes them firmly into safer...
  • My Pet World: Kingpin's love of dogs evident in his latest film

    If there ever was a Hollywood kingpin — Lawrence Kasdan fills the bill. He's participated in writing and directing so many great movies, including "Raiders of the Lost Ark," "The Empire Strikes Back," "Return of the Jedi," "The Bodyguard," "Body...
  • 'Darling Companion' review: Can't really blame the dog for running away

    'Darling Companion' review: Can't really blame the dog for running away
    ** (out of four) My wife and I just adopted my in-laws’ 7-year-old dog, an extremely lovable miniature dachshund named Rosie. I am exactly the right person to find warmth in “Darling Companion,” in which Beth (Diane Keaton) rescues a 7-...
  • Diane Keaton and Kevin Kline can't save messy 'Darling Companion' ✭ 1/2

    Diane Keaton and Kevin Kline can't save messy 'Darling Companion' ✭ 1/2
    Like Freeway, the lovable stray dog at the center of this very teary comedy, "Darling Companion"has lost its way. Even the marquee ensemble anchored by Diane Keaton, Dianne Wiest, Kevin Kline and Richard Jenkins is not enough to rescue this motley mutt of...
  • En cartelera: Darling Companion y Chimpanzee

    <b>En cartelera:</b> Darling Companion y Chimpanzee
    Darling Companion ** Para contar una historia sobre el desamor que se apodera de las parejas casadas, el director Lawrence Kasdan reúne a artistas como Diane Keaton, Kevin Kline, Sam Shepard, Dianne Wiest y Richard Jenkins. Pero este elenco de...
  • 'The Tale of Despereaux'

    'The Tale of Despereaux'
    Lovable rodents and a fussy French chef -- there's a soupçon of "Ratatouille" in "The Tale of Despereaux," but this old-fashioned fable cares not a whit about culinary competition or entrepreneurial triumph. It revolves around matters as elemental as...

    Oscar shutouts and surprises: who defied the odds
    Each year, the Oscar nominations result in a pleasure-pain split in Hollywood. There's the "You like me, you really like me!" jubilation for those whose work gets honored. Then there are the bruised egos of those who early on had been touted as Oscar...
