You know, I get more and more respect for Sissy Spacek as an actress, the more of her work I see... she really is so hugely talented. She won an Oscar for her 1980 portrayal of Loretta Lynn in Coal Mi…
The setup goes something like this: Six women live in a mansion with a man named Marcel. There's Gaby, his wife; Catherine, his younger daughter; Augustine, his sister-in-law; Mamy, his mother-in-law;…
I remember trying to watch Little Shop of Horrors several times as a kid, and every time I would wind up completely confused, lose interest, and drift. Years later I worked in a video store with a gir…
A funny, fabulous, feel-good romp right from the get-go, Pitch Perfect takes the standard competition-comedy formula and applies to the world of collegiate a cappella groups. At the center of this ha…

Am I insane, or was August Rush touted as one of the feel-good movies of the year? I guess it might make you feel good... if you like eating tripe, covered in cheese, slathered in syrup, and served wi…
Unlike the sweet confectionary pop of the High School Musical films (which I kinda like), Bandslam one-ups Disney by making a totally accessible teen film which still has some true darkness and sadnes…
To Madonna's credit, she got Eugene Hutz to star in her first film as a director. Not conventionally handsome, Eugene has a big nose, handlebar moustache, a floppy mullet, and is tall and kind of gang…
