    A determined teacher enters the Octagon in 'Here Comes the Boom' ★★ 1/2
    Wait a sec. How did the Kevin James mixed martial arts movie end up a more convincing portrait of the plight of the American public school teacher than "Won't Back Down," a film that's actually about that subject? "Here Comes the Boom" begins not well,...
  • Review: 'The Dark Knight Rises' more than shines, and on many levels

    Potent, persuasive and hypnotic, "The Dark Knight Rises"has us at its mercy. A disturbing experience we live through as much as a film we watch, this dazzling conclusion to director Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy is more than an exceptional...
  • Reel Critics: 'Extremely' good and 'Incredibly' emotional

    Few films have more award-winning talent than"Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close." Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock need no introduction. Director Stephen Daldry earned Oscar nominations for "The Hours" and "The Reader." Eric Roth wrote the screenplays for"...
