Editor still needed for dull Karate Kid remake

Moments after the credits of The Karate Kid ended - more than two-and-a-half hours after the listed show time - I was left with only one question: Where has all the magic gone?

Great comedic chemistry fuels bizarre Greek road trip

As Roscoe Lee Browne might have said, the first hazard for a supporting character given their own movie is the extreme increase in screen time - the adulation can spin them quite giddy.

A Zzzzzzzz on Elm Street

There's a lot more to like in director Samuel Bayer's remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street than most people would expect. It's moody, surprisingly low on the gore meter and it's got a few nice scares. But despite the best efforts of Bayer and cinematographer Jeff Cutter, it's just plain boring.

'Losers' lost in cliche

Fantastic ensemble brings life to this 'Funeral'

'Imaginarium' a spectacle of storytelling

Visually captivating and dramatically engrossing, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is pure Terry Gilliam - the line between fiction and reality is gleefully muddled; the mood is dark, yet fun and offbeat; the casting impeccable; and its grandiose visual effects work wonders.

Carell and Fey have fun 'Date,' if nothing special

The good news is that Date Night is exactly what one would expect from the previews: silly, funny and light.
