Review: Boxtrolls is missing all the ingredients for fun entertainment

Must-see list for N.Y. festival

Every major film festival has its thing: Cannes features stunning stars arriving by speedboat and a wealth of international films playing before well-heeled audiences on the French Riviera; Sundance plays American indies, many of which are as yet unsold, in the frigid clime of the Utah mountains; Toronto brings a veritable tidal wave of some 300 films, from obscure indie and international auteur to Hollywood prosaic; while New York hand-selects some 30-odd films from all over the world for its main slate.

Review: The Song

posted: 09/26/2014 2:09 a.m. Discuss

The Song is a major-key Christian movie with remarkably high production values and an interesting premise. It's based on the biblical book "Song of Songs" (also known as "The Song of Solomon") and generally attributed by believers to the second son of King David and Bathsheba. (For purposes of this discussion we'll leave aside modern theories about the actual authorship of the piece.)

Review: The Equalizer

posted: 09/26/2014 1:58 a.m. Discuss

Because he's handsome and charismatic, Denzel Washington is clearly a star, but it's a lot more fun to watch him when he's called upon to act.

Annabelle, R This prequel to The Conjuring shows the story of the evil doll (now locked up in an occult museum in Connecticut and visited only by a priest who blesses it twice a month) and how it became a conduit to the damned via an entity conjured up by satanic cultists who violently attack the couple who purchased it.

The Boxtrolls

MovieStyle: Little boxes made of ticky tacky

posted: 09/25/2014 11:03 a.m. Discuss

Review: A Walk Among the Tombstones

posted: 09/19/2014 2:48 a.m. Discuss

Liam Neeson's late-career resurgence, began, I suppose, with the reprehensible Taken series and has sprung from there into the kind of auto-branding most stars get to enjoy in the prime of their youth.
