Review: Silver Linings Playbook

— by SHERICE ANTOINETTE — Rarely do I fall in love with a film, but “Silver Linings Playbook” had me at “Excelsior,” a word Bradley Cooper’s character, Pat, chants as his mantra. We first meet Pat right as his apprehensive mother, Dolores (Jacki Weaver), picks him up from a psy[...]

The Last Stand: 2 Trailers and 5 Posters

— by JOSUE SANCHEZ — Arnold Schwarzenegger is back! Sure, we saw him in “Expendables 2,” but “The Last Stand” is his movie and he is the Sheriff. I have been following the development of this film. Word on the street is that it features great car chases and some e[...]

Jack Reacher: Two TV Spots

Review: Lincoln

— by ADAM DALE — It is apparent by the number of films being made about the man that the legend and the lore of our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln, is as strong and powerful as ever. We have already seen the man fight the undead in the ridiculous but fun “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunt[...]

Review: White Tiger (aka Belyy tigr)

— by BEV QUESTAD — The official Russian entry for the 85th Academy Award competition for best foreign language film is not quite what you’d expect – yet then again, in the country producing Dostoevsky’s anguished “Crime and Punishment,” Chekov’s depressing “Ward Number 6”[...]

Trailer: The Host

Review: Skyfall

— by JOSUE SANCHEZ — I was already imaging in my mind how my introduction to this review for “Skyfall” would run even before watching the movie. I am a longtime Bond fan, and after watching the trailers for the film, and reading about its enormous success abroad, I pretty muc[...]

Trailer: Jurassic Park 3D

Review: Field Work: A Family Farm

Trailer: Escape from Planet Earth
