'Guardians of the Galaxy' Review: Star Wars-Lite

The film's biggest failure is a total lack of suspense. You never once fear for the lives of the main characters or believe Ronan will achieve his dastardly goals. "Guardians" desperately wants to ape the operatic adventurism of "Star Wars" but seems to forget that the humor came from believable characters and situations, and that the early annihilation of an innocent planet and death of a main character made the stakes feel real.

'The Remaining' - Fright Fest With a Faith-Based Message

This week I was asked to be part of a pre-screening for the motion picture The Remaining (opening September 5 nationwide), a Christian-themed film that is bound to affect many people of faith in surprising ways. But this is also a film that can be enjoyed as just a film--a horror/monster movie, yet--and does not have to be viewed as just a preachy "church movie." But beware, along with the frightening horror movie moments, this movie will make you think about your life, too. 1 Aug 2014, 2:48 PM PDT

'Get On Up' Review: Brilliant Biopic Anchored By Dazzling Lead Performance

There is no question Chadwick Boseman has earned himself a Best Actor nomination. Like Brett Ratner's "Hercules," the "Get On Up" trailers are deceptive. This is no feel-good musical biopic from Tate Taylor, the director of "The Help." This is a sprawling and serious movie about James Brown; a fiercely independent, difficult, complicated, driven, obstinate, egotistical, selfish, brave, trailblazing, patriotic and charismatic musical genius … and in a dazzling career-defining performance, Boseman captures every bit of him. 1 Aug 2014, 10:38 AM PDT

'Enough': Gabby Giffords Unfortunate Book Title

If your goal is to convince Americans to agree to water down their 2nd Amendment civil rights, why use the title of a popular Jennifer Lopez movie where an abused wife is relentlessly stalked by her ex-husband? The Lopez character teaches herself to fight back and eventually ends up trapping and killing the bastard. The point is that she does not enact The Giffords Plan and helplessly wait for The State to solve her problem; she does what it takes to defend herself. 30 Jul 2014
