    Monsters University (**½)

    Not even the coldest of hearts can resist the affable charm of monster-duo Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan (Billy Crystal and John Goodman, respectively), but that doesn’t mean it’s fair for them to carry a threadbare, unoriginal narrative on their backs and expect Toy Story 2-levels of greatness to transpire. Disney•Pixar’s...

    Monsters, Inc. 3D (***½)

    What better way to spend the holidays than curling up under the covers after a hard day of work and play, ready for a long nap only to then be woken up by a creaking sound, your closet door slowly opening and out emerges a vicious monster ready to steal your screams...

    On the Road (***)

    After what feels like just about an eternity, I finally saw ‘On the Road’ back in early October at one of the first screenings post Toronto. This is a film that’s been on the verge of release so long it’s almost become an annual joke between Clayton and myself about including it...

    TV Review: Boardwalk Empire, Season 3 (***½)

    Somehow, someway, Boardwalk Empire has managed to sustain itself in the upper echelons of great television in spite of the potentially-controversial decision to kill off the series’ second-most important character in the final moments of last season’s finale. Immediately following this jarring narrative twist, Boardwalk Empire was praised by critics and fans...

    Disney/Pixar’s Monster’s University Teaser Trailer(s) Debut!

    Anyone who knows me by now, knows that how I much I absolutely LOVE Monster’s Inc., as it was my #2 film of 2001.  While my excitement is parked cautiously on the follow-up prequel, Monster’s University, I remember great films like Toy Story have only gotten better with each and every movie....

    Rampart (***)

    Woody Harrelson shines in co-writer/director Oren Moverman’s sometimes uneven but always compelling police drama ‘Rampart’.  Harrelson is absolutely phenomenal playing an old school member of the Los Angeles Police Department during a time when the tide is changing and people like him are a thing of the past.  Moverman has improved as...
