Review: Inside Llewyn Davis

— by RON WILKINSON — Strange and whacky, yes, but the Coen Brother’s latest movie falls short of the mark set by their previous pieces, especially the similar “O Brother Where Art Thou.” Attempting to create the strange, offbeat and wonderful aura of the mythological search of “O[...]

Under Review: ‘Drive’

— by SHERICE ANTOINETTE — I might be the only woman on the planet who thought “The Notebook” was overrated. When I watched it the first time, I didn’t feel the emotion nor was I into heartthrob Ryan Gosling. To put it plainly, I wasn’t caught up in the hype. Years later, I was re[...]

Can Rooney Mara Do Lisbeth Salander Justice?

— by VICTOR RODRIGUEZ — I am a huge fan of Swedish movie “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” I thought Noomi Rapace just nailed the part of Lisbeth. Who cares if she was older than the character in the book? In the “Bourne” books, the character of Jason Bourne is s[...]

Poster Peek: ‘The Greatest’

— by RACHEL COYNE — While the movie may be “The Greatest,” the poster is anything but. Now that Carey Mulligan is an Oscar-nominated star on the rise, a small film she made right before doing “An Education” — one that probably wouldn’t have seen a promoted distribution[...]

British Independent Film Awards Winners Announced

— by CAM SMITH — With the Oscar race already kicking into gear, we’re going to be seeing a lot of uninspired lists of award winners over the next two sleepy months. Many of these ceremonies will result in forehead-slapping victories — *cough* Golden Globes *cough* — while[...]
