127 Hours

Review (-/10)
(By Brian Orndorf)

Throughout his career, filmmaker Danny Boyle has taken chances. Some have worked (“Slumdog Millionaire,” “Sunshine”), others have failed (“A Life Less Ordinary”), but he’s remained a captivating, intrepid presence on the movie scene. “127 Hours” is perhaps his most astonishing work to date, bringing to the screen the staggeringly nightmarish true story of Aron Ralston, who found himself lite ...

Fair Game

Review (-/10)
(By Brian Orndorf)

Observed from afar, “Fair Game” comes across as another drab, fact-based political thriller, running through a tiresome routine of white men in suits making sour faces and speaking with slippery Washington tongues. And the film is exactly that in spurts, but it’s also a Doug Liman picture.

The land of Jhamora has been divided into two communities, with the winged Nohrin living in hostility with the mystical Lockni ...

(By Erin Cullin)

Whenever I see a truly horrible film, I wonder what the studio executives must have thought when the film was screened for them. Did they realize that it was a horrible film and unleash it upon unsuspecting film audiences anyway? Or, did they actually delude themselves into believing that it was a watchable film?

Is there no quality control in Hollywood?

This week, I had an opportunity to ask myself these questions as I watched what ...

Georgia Rule

Review (0/10)
(By Erin Cullin)

This weekend, I had the misfortunate of actually wasting two hours of my life. I have no-one but myself to blame. There were other things that I could have done with my time. I have a pile of laundry in my basement that needs to be washed. There were reruns playing of Gene Simmons' Family Jewels. I could have stared into space and contemplated the universe. Instead, I went to see Georgia Rule.

Georgia Rule is the latest film by Garry Ma ...
