Movie Review: Motherless Brooklyn (2019)

Edward Norton is an odd duck. When he burst onto the scene with 1996’s “Primal Fear,” he matched beats with more seasoned stars Richard Gere, Laura Linney and Francis McDormand, and earned an Oscar nomination for his trouble. Subsequent roles in “American History X,” “Fight Club” and “25th Hour” led to him being hailed as…

Movie Review: Blockers (2018)

While the teen sex comedy Blockers brings on the typical roller-coaster of raunchiness, it somehow registers devilishly with an offbeat, uproarious take on the trials and tribulations of stress-induced parenting and safeguarding the so-called virtues of impressionable daughters from predatory prom dates. With a deft hand, director Kay Cannon (screenwriter for the “Pitch Perfect” trilogy…

Movie Review: How to be Single (2016)

Some romantic comedies can be conventional in nature and not really want to invest in anything substantive beyond the familiar follow-the-dots formula of lightweight lunacy.

Movie Review: Vacation (2015)

The plotlines are so similar it could be sued for identity theft: A goofy, but loving and cheery father (in this case, Ed Helms,…

Movie Review: ParaNorman (2012)

For kids and monsters and kids who love monsters (and for adults, too!) comes a movie about kids and monsters and kids who love monsters (and it’s about adults, too!). Far from normal, ParaNorman is sweet little stop-motion confection that bleeds love for horror cinema and channels that passion into a concentrated celebration of odd…

Movie Trailer: This Is 40 (2012)

I think we can all agree that Pete and Debbie from “Knocked Up” stole the show from Ben and Alison when they were on-screen together. So why not give them their own project? It comes in the form of This is 40 and the premise is . . . you guessed it, a change of…

Movie Trailer: ParaNorman (2012)

What normally happens to weird kids who proclaim to see and talk to ghosts? They get ignored, ostracized and/or bullied. Which is exactly what happens to little Norman in Focus Features’ claymation pic ParaNorman, that is until the town needs his peculiar gift. For reasons unknown (the trailer hints to a 300th anniversary of a…
