    Tribeca Review: An Unwieldy ‘The Five-Year Engagement’ Is Still Endearing, Funny & Smart

    Funny, touching and occasionally dramatic, Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller’s charming “The Five Year Engagement” falls just short of the modern-day comedy classic category, and yet is deeply entertaining, genuinely amusing and satisfying in the way most shaggy-dog, two-hour-plus comedies are not. B...

    Review: 'Bad Ass' Adds Intriguing Dimension To Hit Viral Video, Then Squanders It With Tacky Exploitation Trappings

    All hail VOD, the format giving new life to disreputable exploitation films. It was problematic to stock them on DVD shelves next to the likes of “Kangaroo Jack” and “The Chronicles Of Riddick.” Now, the cheapest, tackiest, most base thrills are only a click away, allowing an opportunistic indie lik...

So it's no surprise that some filmmakers, for all their best efforts, can go three, four, five or more years between pictures. Worryingly, it seems to be doubly true for f...

    Review: Disneynature's 'Chimpanzee' Would Be Genuinely Amazing If Tim Allen Just Shut The Hell Up

    The opening moments of Disneynature’s “Chimpanzee” are genuinely jaw dropping – an emerald green jungle, more lush and 3D than the otherworldly forests of Pandora, fans out across the screen, and we’re introduced to a young male chimpanzee, named Oscar, as intricate and bewildering as any CGI creati...

    Criticwire Picks: A Pair of Korean Films Take the Top Spots

    This weekend’s newest offerings in theaters and on-demand are a tad more modest than past weeks. There’s no hyped-up meta-movie or Oscar-nominated foreign film. But there’s one release that has distinguished itself as our Criticwire pick of the week.

    Review: 'Goodbye First Love' Looks At Young Romance Without Affection

    Television and movies love to indulge us in pre-adulthood nostalgia. Whether the bait is loose (young hooligans causing a ruckus) or more specific and event-oriented (prom, which we've seen less of lately because, well, prom sucks), the powers that be tug at our heartstrings and force us to look...
