Movie Review: The Judge (2014)

The success of David Dobkin’s (“Wedding Crashers”) The Judge lies in its ability to sound just like every other story in which a successful prodigal son returns from “the big city” in the midst of personal turmoil to attend a parent’s funeral (“Elizabethtown,” “Garden State,” etc.) when summarized aloud, but play out on screen as…

Movie Review: Jayne Mansfield’s Car (2012)

Jayne Mansfield’s Car is a tedious, depressing dysfunctional film about a tedious, depressing, dysfunctional pair of families, headed by patriarchs Robert Duvall and John Hurt, respectively.

Movie Trailer: Jack Reacher (2012)

Who said Tom Cruise was a has-been? Truthfully, I probably did, but hot off of “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” he’s back in the actioner Jack Reacher. Based on the book “One Shot” by Lee Child, Cruise takes the lead as an ex-cop turned private investigator who gets involved with a murder case involving a…
