The Invisible War (***)

I had the pleasure of attending the 36th Annual Cleveland International Film Festival in March, which just so happened to be the first film fest I have attended. Unfortunately, due to a tight weekend schedule, I was only able to attend one film, but the one that I selected was the absolute right choice. I was […]

Sony’s Think Like a Man remains at the top of the box office report after its second week in theatres, though the film dropped its total by 46% down to $18 million. Sony also managed to take the runner-up spot this week with The Pirates!

God Bless America (***)

Comedian turned filmmaker Bobcat Goldthwait has built his cinematic career on toying with an audience’s expectations. With the possible exception of his directorial debut ‘Shakes the Clown’ (where he was still finding his voice), he’s taken to throwing his viewers for a loop. ‘Sleeping Dogs Lie’ was more a look at contemporary relationships and the […]

This may not be my favorite top five in Idol history (that award goes to Season Five), but I believe all the remaining contestants will continue to wow us with some astute song choices and powerful performances. It’s no surprise […]

Sound of My Voice (**½)

You know, I like an open-ended conclusion as much as the next guy (and sometimes more), but I do have the pre-requisite that the film earn its ending. ‘Sound of My Voice’ is an example of a good movie that doesn’t earn its abrupt and supposedly shocking ending. Up until the final moments of the […]

Circuit Round-Up (Week Ending 4/29)

Wow, where do I even begin? This was the James Cameron of weeks here The Awards Circuit. We delivered big, and as a result our success was tantamount to Camerons’ Avatar and Titanic in my book. As you can see, The Awards Circuit has undergone a huge transformation, evolving what you all know and love […]

The Five-Year Engagement (***)

If one didn’t know this already, Judd Apatow likes his films to be on the long side, both the ones he directs and the ones he produces. It’s hard to make a comedy sustain its energy when you’re approaching 2 hours, but Apatow has had good luck in that regard. ‘The Five-Year Engagement’ is further […]
