  1. 7 potential alternatives to summer flashy films

    There are seven films that appear promising for this summer's moviegoers.

  2. Review: 'Transcendence' devolves into standard science silliness

    'Transcendence' just can't transcend Hollywood. What starts out as a fairly interesting look at the dangers and temptations of technology eventually devolves into a special effects-driven ridiculous ball of confusion.

  3. Review: 'Under the Skin' will get under yours

    Seductively eerie and serious, 'Under the Skin' is superb science fiction, yet not for the easily bored or frustrated.

  4. Review: 'Dom Hemingway' has a temper and uses it

    'Dom Hemingway' isn't so much a story as it is a portrait of a poetic lunatic thug. Luckily, Jude Law brings just the right mix of swagger, lewdness and vulnerability to the film.

  5. Review: Rural town poison comes to light in dark, dirty 'Joe'

    In a small Texas town, an ex-con leads a work crew poisoning trees so developers can legally knock them down to build houses.That job description offers an instant feel for the world of 'Joe' rough, ugly, a bit crazy and dirty.

  6. Review: 'Jodorowsky's Dune' details a director's unfulfilled vision

    'Jodorowsky's Dune' is a documentary that looks back to the '70s when visionary filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky tried to adapt Frank Herbert's wildly popular science fiction novel. It is possibly the most influential film never made.

  7. No risk taken by naming Colbert host of 'Late Show'

    It seems to me Colbert is way too smart and cutting edge to feed the traditionally bland late-night beast. And beyond that, isn't it about time someone other than a white male hosted a late-night broadcast talk show?

  8. Review: 'Draft Day' offers two hours of shameless NFL power-branding

    When did corporations and products start getting their own films? More importantly, why did corporations and products start getting their own films? Not that 'Draft Day' is a terrible film, just predictable.

  9. Review: 'Oculus' is tightly told tale of a murderous mirror

    Tightly paced between two time periods, and edited so they become a blur, 'Oculus' is a hallucinatory ghost story that packs serious punch.

  10. Review: 'Nymphomaniac Vol. II' is second epic of obsession

    In 'Nymphomaniac Vol. II' writer-director Lars Von Trier moves on to kink, crime and cruelty, none of which will come as a surprise to those who've seen 'Vol. I.'
