Movie Review: A Good Day to Die Hard (2013)

John Moore’s new film A Good Day to Die Hard is the action equivalent of a chick-flick: It’s an hour and a half of highly predictable, mindless popcorn filler good only for the most ardent. The only thing it really gets right is it doesn’t take itself seriously — taking the action genre to the…

Movie Review: Gangster Squad (2013)

Some years ago I learned 1930s and ’40s era gangsters learned to talk “gangster” from the motion pictures.

She puts her curves and flightiness (the reasons she is one of my pleasures) center stage again in Lionsgate’s new actiony rom-com One for the Money. Based on a long running mystery series written by Janet Evanovich, Heigl tackles the role…
