After seeing you in Interview, however, I find myself biting my tongue. I endured that lousy Factory Girl film, out of an appreciation for Edie Sedgwick, and left with only one thought, "was I wrong about Sienna Miller?" Certainly, it's been noted the similarities between your own life and that of Ms. Sedgwick, but you injected her with something almost fascinating, far more intriguing than the film itself.

Also a good idea? Not letting an assassin reach into his pocket when you're trying to subdue him. I promise he is not reaching for chewing gum.

Being a hardcore My So-Called Life wiener, I'm more than happy to accept Claire Danes as a literal falling star, and Ricky Gervais, Robert DeNiro, Peter O'Toole, Sienna Miller, and Michelle Pfeiffer in the supporting cast bodes very well.

Though director Shane Meadows' understanding of psychology appears to be strictly at the base level, he depicts Combo as a deeply complex and fascinating character, torn by humanism and patriotism.

Understanding that women are complex, unique individuals, I can appreciate how one woman can embody several different emotional states.

Keeping track of the story really takes the passenger side to the kinetic action, elaborate chases, and gorgeous pan-European scenery. This time, it looks as though Jason might finally uncover the truth about his identity.

Hot Rod comes off as one good (though really long) Saturday Night Live skit broken up by digital shorts.

That said, The Simpsons Movie is everything I wanted it to be, although I did not know exactly what it was that I wanted it to be going in.
Thursday, 26 July 2007 14:52It's a little harder to say what is wrong with No Reservations except that there really isn't anything wrong with it. The movie is too safe and predictable, following the expected recipe (pun intended) so fervently, that all the ingredients mix to create a dish that doesn't taste bad so much as insult the palate of the viewer.

Cheadle's and Ejiofor's on-screen chemistry is mesmerizing. They worked amazingly well together as they showcased the constant tension between program manager and talent as well as the natural tension that develops between male friends.

So, I know everyone is wondering—what about Travolta? He is the only member of the cast that I really did not love in the role. More than anything, he was distracting.
This and other reviews for the weekend's new movies in NOW PLAYING

Horsley's performance is truly excellent, and Clement's is by no means bad; it's just that his character was not given enough depth by Cohen.

The problem with Introducing the Dwights is that there are four, maybe five, storylines concerning a small number of characters in only an hour-and-40-minute movie.

The characters, Chuck Levine (Adam Sandler) and Larry Valentine (Kevin James), would be right at home recurring on SNL and probably would have become extremely popular.

This fifth installment of the series does not feel like a rushed summary of its namesake; it is fairly well-paced and surprisingly cohesive, thanks to some shuffling around of plot points.

Maturing from her It Girl status of the mid-90s, Posey has transformed into a radiant actress, clearing herself of minor roles in shitty Meg Ryan or Cameron Diaz films and focusing now on films like Hal Harley's Fay Grim or this.

Where Bay succeeds is in boiling a long-running, continuity-laden franchise down to the bare essence of what makes it so appealing in the first place. The result, much like Bryan Singer's first X-Men film, is true enough to the original to satisfy the diehards but streamlined to appeal to a mainstream crowd.

Long considered dead after cinema's glorious heyday in the '60s and '70s, Golden Door is probably the strongest film to come out of Italy in years.
Thursday, 28 June 2007 06:03There are enough unexpected anti-selling out, pro-being a loner, pro-having an open mind messages that are spoken all too infrequently in movies of this ilk to counterbalance whatever confusion might come along with seeing a number of gun and alcohol references. And none of these things should come as a surprise, anyway-Pixar's nearly always challenging themselves and pushing their art forward.
Thursday, 28 June 2007 05:47For the first 30 minutes, Sicko had me cringing and seething. And by the end, I was in tears. (Which is strange, really, because it actually ends with a pretty good joke...)
Thursday, 28 June 2007 05:31So why was another movie needed 12 years after the last one? One might say because Rocky could do it, so could John McClane.
Thursday, 28 June 2007 05:18Carell is his usual high-energy self as Evan. He does remain true to his character from Bruce Almighty and gives a terrific physical performance.

How is it that the opening of a film which revisits what millions of Americans were captivated and eventually disturbed by is hardly raising any national conversation at all? Could it be that Jolie's off-camera life is overshadowing the important message and emotions the story is meant to present?
