Decline of Drive-Ins a Loss to Cinema, Culture

I'd like to share a story with all of you. Let me begin by saying that not too long ago I barely knew what a drive-in movie theater was. I knew there was a time when people sat in their cars making out while B movies played on a big screen, but I assumed those days were dead and gone. This is why I was so confused when my girlfriend informed me she would be helping to manage and fundraising for a drive-in movie theater. I was perplexed. I hadn't even known one existed in the area.

Superman Turns to God and Church in 'Man of Steel'

I'm not particularly religious, but it's easy for even me to see Hollywood's distaste for anything closely related to religion or faith in today's films. Most of today's movies mock religion or portray anyone even remotely religious as an extreme bigot. Jun 13, 2013 4:13 PM PT

'Those Who Can't' Review: Amazon's Bad Teachers Make for Good Laughs

Most of Amazon's new comedy pilots have fallen flat because they feel like shows created by comedy veterans dashed off while attempting to think up better shows. Many should've been crumpled up and thrown in the trash can by their creators. However, Those Who Can't is one of the better and funnier pilots Amazon has to offer, flaws and all.

'Supanatural' Review: Annoying Girls Saving the World, Not Our Leisure Time

At some point in between green lighting pilots for a show about Republican Senators starring John Goodman and a zombie show based off a hit movie, Amazon decided to give Supanatural a try. No, not Supernatural. Supanatural. You read it correctly. That title, sadly, is only the beginning of this show’s problems. May 8, 2013 11:54 AM PT

'Onion News Empire' Review: Amazon Satire Hits Conservatives, Misses on Story, Characters

Besides Zombieland, which seemed to impress few viewers, Amazon’s Onion News Empire is its second highest-profile pilot based on name recognition and talent on board. However, this critic is sorry to report that despite Amazon’s innovative way of choosing which pilots expand into full seasons, Onion News Empire falls about as flat as the much hyped Zombieland.

'Dark Minions' Review: Sci-Fi Spoof Wastes Potential with 'Under Construction' Visuals

Amazon made a terrible decision when it came to the pilot for Dark Minions. I assume it was Amazon anyway. In the beginning of the show it is explained to us that Dark Minions is meant to be shown in claymation and will be should the show ever make it to series. However, only selected bits of the pilot are in said claymation (and they look great) and the rest is shown as a collection of drawings with voices in the background. Imagine someone flipping through one of those notebooks with a bunch of drawings giving the illusion of movement while the artist makes funny voices. May 3, 2013 1:16 PM PT

'The Third Bullet' Review: Stephen Hunter Unwraps Savvy New Theory on JFK's Death

'Lay the Favorite' Blu-Ray Review: Not a Bad Bet Despite Lack of Theatrical Exposure

"Lay the Favorite" is the film adaptation of Beth Raymer's memoir detailing her life in the world of sports gambling. Director Stephen Frears gathered an impressive cast with everyone from Bruce Willis to Catherine Zeta Jones taking key roles. It passed through theaters relatively unnoticed and didn't get much attention from critics. Now with the film hitting shelves on Blu-Ray and DVD, audiences will have a better chance at discovering Raymer's story and her days as a rising star in the world of sports gambling.

'Alex Cross' Blu-ray Review: Tyler Perry And Co. Offer Best Cross Film Yet

The new thriller "Alex Cross" might be a loose adaptation of the James Patterson novel "Cross," but it's the best Cross film yet because it sticks closer to the spirit of the character and the successful books. What star Tyler Perry sometimes lacks in acting chops, he makes up for in substantial likability and on screen charisma. Feb 4, 2013 12:20 PM PT
