  • DVD Review: 'The Lego Movie' deserves its acclaim

    The team of Phil Miller and Chris Lord have pulled off the coup of making two of year's most entertaining films so far — "22 Jump Street" (released last month) and "The Lego Movie" (from February).

    Among the French directors of the New Wave era, Jacques Demy gets short shrift from critics, in part because, in America, he had one of the biggest foreign language hits of the ’60s, “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg” — a film that was...

    Film Review: 'Expendables' franchise expands its roll call

    Film Review: 'Expendables' franchise expands its roll call
    It's obvious that a great deal of talent — one might even say genius — went into “The Expendables 3.” I refer, of course, to the work of the lawyers and agents who structured the deals and, even more, of the production people who...
