Who can save the world from peril? Super Baby? Samuel L. Jackson? I’m guessing “Coach” Craig T. Nelson wasn’t high on your guessing list as hero to humanity, but in the latest brilliant stroke by Pixar, “Mr. Incredible,” the man with the monotone, is our only hope. […]
Hurrah! Bridget is back! Helen Fielding, the author who received praise for her hilarious portrait of the British singleton looking for romance in all the wrong places, has blessed her readers with a second helping of Bridget Jones’s delightful daily trials and triumphs. […]
Perhaps we’ve all wondered, at one point or another, why it is that we are here. Is our entire existence part of some interrelated work? Are there no coincidences? Or, does everything stand on its own, isolated from some larger meaning?
In David O. Russell’s latest film, the existential comedy “I Heart Huckabees,” these are the questions that poet and environmentalist Albert Markovski tries to answer. […]
Disney classics – we all have them tucked away among the rows of VHS tapes in our movie collections. “The Lion King,” “Aladdin,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Little Mermaid” – they’re staples of our childhood, ones that seemed so steadfast they would never change. […]
It is rare to find a movie with the cuteness to attract and entertain children and enough pop culture references to keep teenagers and adults laughing through its entire 90 minutes. But DreamWorks has done it with “Shark Tale,” a movie about a fish aptly called the Shark Slayer. […]
“Shaun of the Dead” is a movie that doesn’t overstay its welcome – which is good, because it is doubtful that the film’s premise could sustain one more second over its 99-minute running time.
The movie stars Simon Pegg, who also co-wrote the screenplay, as Shaun, an underachieving Brit who may just be the most oblivious person ever to have lived. […]
While there are many action films that focus on the impossible quests of a perfect hero, there are very few films that focus on the heroics of everyday men. “Ladder 49” is one of these few: the film tells the story of firemen, a group that is all too often left out of the headlines. […]
“Dearly beloved, are you listening?” The new Green Day rock opera album, “American Idiot,” is worth more than a listen; it deserves repeated play and praise. The band’s first entirely new album since 2000’s “Warning,” “American Idiot” may very well be one of the best rock albums of the year – if not the best. […]
A note to the reader: this review contains spoilers and should not be read by those interested in being surprised by the plot of “The Forgotten.” Just be advised that said surprises are worth neither your time nor your money.
“The Forgotten” plays like the worst episode of “The X-Files.” […]
Fearing that he is getting too old to compete, Peter Colt (Paul Bettany) gears up for his last stint at Wimbledon. And thus begins “Wimbledon,” a film about a quest not only for victory, but for love as well. While flawed in many respects, “Wimbledon” is an enjoyable film that captures some genuine emotion on screen. […]
After being on a two-year hiatus, R&B singer Brandy has returned with her fourth album, “Afrodisiac,” showing that she still has what it takes to keep us listening.
This particular album, however, does not surpass her previous efforts, at least not vocally. […]
“Mr. 3000” builds a quietly affecting motion picture from one of the most contrived premises ever to hit the silver screen. This near-miraculous feat is due, in no small part, to the wise and funny performance of lead Bernie Mac.
Mac stars as Stan Ross, one of those creeps who we only come across in movies. […]
The 56th Annual Emmy Awards came and went, leaving a lasting memory of the same nominees, the same winners and Elaine Stritch’s brassy comment while accepting her award for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety, Musical or Comedy Show, “Look at the company I’m in. […]
Have you boycotted TV time ever since the sun set on “Friends”? Well couch potatoes, the time has come to dig out your remote (it’s under your bed next to that stale piece of pizza from last September) and tune in, because there’s a whole new world of broadcasting that has yet to be discovered. […]
