Alec Baldwin

Aloha Review

Cameron Crowe's ensemble rom com Aloha has all the ingredients that should make audiences love it, but the script feels sloppy, with a beginning that's too messy and an ending that's too clean.

Still Alice Review

Outside of Julianne Moore's powerhouse performance, there's not much to talk about with the well meaning and mostly decent Alzheimer's drama Still Alice.

Home Entertanment Round-Up: 4/7/14

We kick off this Home Entertainment round-up with two Martin Scorsese comedies - The King of Comedy and The Wolf of Wall Street - before looking at new releases for Sam Raimi's Darkman, Howard Hawks' El Dorado, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, and Paul Schrader's remake of Cat People. There's also some B-movie goodness with looks at Alec Baldwin in The Shadow, the 1980s horror flick Night of the Demons, and the made for TV 1973 thriller The Horror at 37,000 Feet

Seduced and Abandoned Review

James Toback and Alec Baldwin's take on the Cannes film festival marketplace Seduced and Abandoned is a disarming look at a pair of established Hollywood players with huge egos in an industry that has seen the almighty dollar sign replace star power and authorial intent.

Blue Jasmine Review

Thanks to an excellent script and a knock-out leading performance from Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine is handily Woody Allen's best film since the early 1990s. Instead of being fun, playful, or genre based, it's emotional, real, and keenly perceptive.

This Week in DVD: 1/15/13

Looking to shake the early winter doldrums? Before you head out or order in a movie out on DVD this week, take a look at our eclectic line-up of reviews including the action of Taken 2 and Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning, the martial arts mayhem of Swords of Dragons Gate, the drama of Won't Back Down, the visual splendour of Samsara, and the return of Woody Allen in To Rome with Love.

Rise of the Guardians Review

While it looks great, Rise of the Guardians teams up some of your favourite childhood hits in a film that's annoying, chaotic, and terribly written. It's as if Michael Bay decided to up and make a film for the under 10 crowd.

To Rome With Love Review

While not one of the more disposable films in the Woody Allen cannon, the filmmaker's latest To Rome With Love only manages to be a mildly amusing mishmash of four separate, mediocre, half-baked stories instead of just one really good one.

Rock of Ages Review

Although overstuffed, lazily plotted, and autotuned nearly into oblivion, the big screen adaptation of the jukebox musical Rock of Ages still has a real kind of shaggy dog charm evocative of the 1980s hair metal scene (minus, you know, any sort of crippling addictions, of course).

Summer Movie Preview: June Part Two

Wrapping up our look at the cinematic offerings for the month of June, we take a look at some real heavy hitters with Brave, Moonrise Kingdom, Prometheus, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Snow White and the Huntsman, Rock of Ages, and Piranha 3DD, which will undoubtedly win the box office crown for the month.
