Green in All Her Glory Wednesday, March 5, 2014
I'm beginning to understand how supervillains are born, because I was rooting for the evil superbitch Persian naval commander Artemisia here, and I'm not even going to apologize for it. Look, Hollywood: You mostly ignore women, treat us like …
West Bank Story Wednesday, March 5, 2014
If the filmmakers behind The Amazing Spider-Man had been smart, they'd have kicked that Andrew Garfield guy to the curb and cast Adam Bakri as the titular web-slinger. The agile young star of Hany Abu-Assad's Omar would've injected some much-needed …

Preaching to the Choir Wednesday, February 26, 2014
No one tale has dominated cinema more than the story of Jesus. Starting in 1912 with From the Manger to the Cross, to the epics of the 1950s, to Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ, the subject has been covered ad nauseam. When yet another Biblical …

An Accidental Masterpiece Wednesday, February 19, 2014
Cult classic The Room perches at the top of 
 a heap of movies so terrible that somehow 
 everything that's wrong with it becomes so, so right. Often referred to as "the Citizen Kane of bad movies," the term "awesomely bad" might have been …
Cop Out Wednesday, February 19, 2014
Near the end of this dreadful RoboCop remake, there's a piece of dialogue that defines the whole thing. Samuel L. Jackson unleashes his umpteenth diatribe as right-wing TV host Pat Novak, and drops a motherf***** that's actually bleeped out. That's …

Everything Is Awesome Wednesday, February 12, 2014
At first, the idea of a film based on a pile of colorful toy bricks as its narrative 
 launching point seemed patently absurd. Had Hollywood's desperate need to find product tie-ins for every and any toy gone completely bonkers? What's next? A …
