Before showing up to the screening of Annapolis, I made sure I was good n' buzzed. With a nice strong margarita making me mentally fuzzy and relaxed, I thought that I might be able to slightly enjoy a…
Queen Latifah has a wonderful screen presence, and is often the best thing in some crappy movies (like the dreadfully dumb Bringing Down the House with Steve Martin). With the fluffy and sweet Last Ho…
Take half a step back, and you can easily compare this indie film to an updated The Big Chill. The class of 1981 is coming home to Ojai, California, which substitutes for Anytown, U.S.A. Many of the g…

I’ll admit that I was a little skeptical going into The Upside of Anger. By the time I was heading to the theater, I’d already seen tons of glowing reviews and Sundance raves, and Joan Allen’s pe…
