Prom, The

Despite its awkward and uneven elements, The Prom offers enough high-energy moments to be seen as a passable motion picture adaptation of the stage play written by Bob Martin and Chad Beguelin. As movie adaptations of musicals go, this one is ...

Birds of Prey

mother!

Kudos to Darren Aronofsky for having the courage to make this film. Kudos to Paramount Pictures for having the guts to open this wide rather than burying it or hiding it as a VOD release. It’s too bad it doesn’t work.With mother!, Aronofs...

Circle, The

Ruby Sparks

After watching Ruby Sparks, I asked myself a question: Did I enjoy it as much as I did because it brings such a breezy perspective to a tired genre or because it offers a unique point-of-view of creativity and the writing process? I'm not sure Ruby...

Cowboys & Aliens

Cowboys & Aliens is a mashup of a mediocre Western and a mediocre science fiction story. The resulting film is far better than the sum of its two seemingly disparate parts. Although a little overlong, the production will find favor not only with l...
