Ant Bully, The

The Ant Bully is a sore disappointment to anyone hoping for a turnaround to the recent downward quality spiral of animated films. In fact, this movie may represent a new nadir for 3D animation. Although it's pretty enough to look at (although now...

Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans

When artistic and marketing impulses collide, you end up with an unwieldy title like Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans. Director Werner Herzog's preferred name, Port of Call New Orleans, was deemed unsuitable by producer Edward R. Pressman,...

Con Air

Con Air, producer Jerry Bruckheimer's generic follow-up to 1996's blockbuster, The Rock, is the kind of motion picture that critics refer to when they moan about the "dumbing down" of American cinema. This movie is a perfect example of what's wron...

Drive Angry

Seen in standard (non-IMAX) 3-D. The appeal of Drive Angry is much the same as that of Piranha: a willingness to revel in absurdity to the degree where the exhilaration is infectious. This is a comic book come to life. A combined homage to/paro...

G-Force

I feel bad for Hoyt Yeatman. I really do, although perhaps not as bad as I feel for myself for having sat through his feature debut. But here's a guy who has paid his dues. He got started way back in 1977 helping out in the special effects depar...
