    L.A. Film Fest Review: 'A Band Called Death' Rewrites Punk History, And Tells An Emotional Story of Faith And Family

    Nope, not The Ramones, The Clash or the Sex Pistols. Not even Bad Brains. The true punk pioneers were a band called Death, straight out of the Motor City, Detroit, and you’ve probably never heard of them until now. Thanks to some obsessive record collectors, a whole lot of serendipity, and a new doc...

    The Invisible War

    Review: David Cross, Julia Stiles, America Ferrera and More Charm in Todd Berger's Satisfying Apocalyptic Couples Drama 'It's a Disaster'

    Character studies set during the advent of the apocalypse are so common these days they practically form their own genre, but "It's a Disaster" manages to stand out from the crowd by having as much fun as possible with the grim scenario. A largely uneven satire set entirely within the ...

    Brave—movie review

    If you have kids, you’ll want to take them to 'Brave', and they’ll almost certainly have a good time.

    Rock Of Ages—movie review

    It’s easy to see how 'Rock of Ages' became a crowd-pleaser on Broadway, where audiences got caught up in the energy of 80s hit songs performed live. The film adaptation (credited, astonishingly, to three screenwriters, including the show’s creator Chris D’Arenzio) is a dreary collection of clichés a...
