— 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[...]

Review: The Hangover Part III

Monsters University: Feature Trailer

— by ADAM POYNTER — With a successful film like “Monsters, Inc.” it was likely that we would be seeing those characters again. Well, not only was it converted and re-released in 3D, but 12 years later we are finally getting a second movie, “Monsters University.” Instead of the us[...]

Review: Trouble with the Curve

— by ADAM DALE — To most people, the name Clint Eastwood commands either nostalgia, or a feeling of old Hollywood talent. Those over a certain age see him as “Dirty Harry” or The Man with No Name, while those under the age of 30 probably see him as a man who is grumpy in […][...]

Trailer Talk: ‘You Don’t Know Jack’

— by ROB COX — Big-screen legend Al Pacino has done some severe stinkers over the last few years, namely, the laughable “Righteous Kill” and the absurd “88 Minutes.” Both of those films were just plain bad — gag-inducingly bad, in fact. Pacino’s latest film, a made-for-TV aff[...]
