Ryan Reynolds' immortality thriller "Self/Less" is disappointingly soul/less

Published July 19, 2015

Tarsem Singh is a man who spent about four years and much of his own money traveling the globe's most outrageously beautiful locales in order to make his magnum opus "The Fall." So how'd he end up standing behind the camera of "Self/Less," an utterly anonymous and impact-free immortality action-thriller that - much like the fresh if not quite new bodies being peddled in the film - seems "alive only in the most basic sense"?

Luster-free "Woman in Gold" is middlebrow at its most middling

Published June 2, 2015

"Turbo" doesn't put the pedal to the creative metal

Published July 17, 2013

If "Turbo," Dreamworks' latest animated feature, was looking for another five-letter word to call itself, "Bland" would be an accurate option (if not exactly one that would please the marketing guys). Nothing about "Turbo" is particularly bad or harmful, but nothing about it is particularly interesting, emotional or even simply all that funny either.

"The Croods" a rock solid animated adventure for all ages

Published March 25, 2013

"The Croods," the latest animated picture to come out of Dreamworks, follows a formula pretty closely. Yet somehow, the movie finds new nuances, angles, jokes and emotional notes, and mixes those with the kind of beautiful, lush, colorful and imaginative cartoon worlds you would expect from a high-end animated picture. It results in easily the studio's best film since 2010's "How to Train Your Dragon."

"Smokin' Aces" more like a pack of jokers

Published Jan. 29, 2007

If movies were allowed an entire report card, "Smokin' Aces" should get an A for effort, but as for the rest of the grades, it would level out around the C- to D+ range.
