Showed our girls Home Alone recently, they're 4.5 and 7. They loved it. Have to say I'd forgotten some of the iffy language in the early going (it's not really bad, just rude/crass stuff that we...

Prisoners is remarkable, just great. I bring it up anytime I'm talking movies with someone.

I'm taking a weird pleasure in the terrible reviews for this movie. Margot is great of course but I had the same reaction - oooh so wacky and edgy, but just seemed annoying. Similarly all the...

Watched this a few nights ago. Dreadful. Nonsensical plot, incredibly annoying characters, lousy comic relief, and been-there done-that action sequences. I loved District 9, and was terribly...

Hold on a minute, Dolemite may have been incompetently made wrt the filmmaking, but it is indeed hilarious. Rudy Ray Moore was a genius. It's sequel, The Human Tornado, was also great.

Great action movies made in Indonesia by a British writer/director (Gareth Evans, who did the most recent of the Godzilla movies). No holds barred R rated gunplay &...
