Bryan Cranston

All The Way Review

All The Way doesn't go far enough in its depiction of civil rights struggles, but it does provide Bryan Cranston with an opportunity to act the hell out of America's oddest president.

Trumbo Review

Can Trumbo rise above its award baiting, self-congratulatory Hollywood biopic trappings?

Godzilla Review

The best spectacle filled summer blockbuster since Jurassic Park, Gareth Edwards' rebooting of Godzilla is as astonishing as it is wholly satisfying.

Argo Review

In Argo, the exciting and fast paced third feature for actor Ben Affleck as a director, a silver screen scam job comes to actual theatres with the filmmaker starring as Mendez, whose best plan to rescue the trapped diplomats comes in the form of bringing them together as a fake movie crew under the guise of being location scouts for a big budget sci-fi epic.

TIFF 2012 Reviews: Part 4

Day four of our TIFF 2012 coverage rolls on with the festival's second day and looks at Argo, The Company You Keep, West of Memphis, At Any Price, Berberian Sound Studio, Imagine, and All That Matters is Past.

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.

Detachment Review

Director Tony Kaye's Detachment wants nothing more than to rip your guts out and make you feel like shit for 98 minutes… in a good way. It’s a sort of emotional horror movie for educators. It might ruin your day to watch the movie, but at least it feels like the harsh experience was done with a purpose, even if Kaye’s execution is somewhat muddled.
