August: Osage County - Movie ReviewWith a swollen cast boasting no fewer than a half dozen A-listers – not to mention an equal number of character actors, there’s a lot of acting firepower vying for attention in John Wells’s August: Osage County.

In a World - Movie ReviewLake Bell, after surviving the supporting actress stranglehold for a number of years, breaks out on her own with In a World…, a movie she writes, directs, and stars in.  The movie subverts the romantic comedy genre by humorously tackling the male-dominated ...

The Book Thief - Movie ReviewThere’s a bothersome disconnect between the story being told in The Book Thief and what we see on the screen. Set in a small German town during the years surrounding the beginning of World War II, as Hitler’s villainous reign of control for hearts and minds is ramping up ...
