Diary of a Wimpy Kid is well-written fun

Ah, the horrors of middle school.

Like some cruel limbo between childhood and adolescence, it's a cringe-worthy lesson in growing up, lined...

Damon thriller is exciting, if a bit preachy

It's no secret that Matt Damon has surprised many people by turning into quite the action star.

Damon, once known for excellent low-key...

Pattinson romance memorable for wrong reason

Remember Me, for 100 minutes, is a surprisingly effective drama about some rather interesting characters.

Not much wonder in 'Wonderland'

Remember what the dormouse said: "Feed your head."

The Best (and Worst) of 2009

Oscar Madison, Oscar the Grouch, that Oscar guy from Short Circuit 2 - a smattering of cinema's most famous Oscars, all surpassed by the what is,...

Plenty of big scares in Crazies remake

It's hard to find good, scary horror movies these days - the state of horror in cinema has simply shifted too far toward gore (which isn't scary)...

'Shutter Island' chills and thrills

Nothing's as it seems in Shutter Island, but audiences can expect another first-rate winner from director...

'Wolfman' all bark, no bite

It's not a howling good time. And no, it doesn't bite.

'Jackson' a fun throwback to less serious adventures

First, a note: Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief is no Harry Potter.

Hallstrom, Sparks deliver a walk to forget

Sitting through the final act of Dear John, the fifth film based on the work of author Nicholas Sparks, I kept remembering that one line from the opening credits: Directed by Lasse Hallstrom.

Travolta saves Paris

For a spy movie paying homage to a classic James Bond title, there's surprisingly little intrigue to be found in From Paris with Love.

Style can't save sluggish Gibson thriller

There's something very familiar about Edge of Darkness, a well-made but routine thriller starring Mel Gibson.

Just another Rome-antic comedy

The Roman poet, Ovid, famously said, "Nothing is more powerful than habit."

'Fairy' even less fun than a toothache

My advice for anyone who also wondered if Tooth Fairy might be good: Don't. Tooth Fairy is absolutely terrible, a miserable film that's mean spirited three-fourths of the time and artificially cute and sentimental the other fourth.

'Legion' marches to mediocrity

Packed with cardboard characters, a boggling number of elements lifted from superior films, and a plot more confusing than a football bat, Legion should shamefully retreat into cinema's January drudge.

Elements don't cohese in Jackson's 'Bones'

I'm not sure exactly what director Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) was trying to accomplish with his adaptation of Alice Sebold's novel, "The Lovely Bones," a painfully depressing film about a 14-year-old girl who is murdered and watches her family, from heaven, as they cope with her murder.

'Book of Eli' is poorly written

Despite striking visuals, an effective sun-parched color scheme and two brilliant lead actors, The Book of Eli's lackluster screenplay makes it a forgettable chapter in cinema's post-apocalyptic tome.

Chan still having fun in 'Spy' comedy

It's obvious martial arts master Jackie Chan, now 55, can't do all the ridiculous, downright crazy things he used to do all the time. So while the stunts and action are somewhat tame (by Chan's standards) in The Spy Next Door, he still knows comedy and he's still having a good time.

Adams should have lept past this dull 'Year'

What is perhaps the most confusing note about Leap Year, a new romantic comedy starring Amy Adams, is that Universal Studios decided to release it this January (23 months after the last Feb. 29 and 25 months before the next). It's like releasing Independence Day in January or a Halloween film in March.

'Daybreakers' offers fun horror with a bite

Daybreakers, boldly released during a time when audiences can cleverly say that vampires suck, is a refreshing blend of science fiction and horror, embracing its R rating with style, mood and unabashed fun.
