“Bully” just scratches surface

I walked out of “Bully” with a heavy heart and a feeling of profound sadness. “Bully” doesn’t aim to be sensational. Nor does it aim to be an in-depth study of the bullying epidemic in America. There are no statistics or interviews from experts in the area; it’s just a simple documentary that follows five…

‘American Reunion’ brings back memories

Teens nowadays may be all about the Apatow movies (“Knocked Up,” “Superbad”), but back in my day we turned to Jim, Kevin, Oz, Finch and the Stifmeister for our dose of raunchiness and shocking sexcapades. It’s been nearly 10 years since we last caught up with the gang, and that’s in part what makes “American…

Cast makes ‘The Hunger Games’ soar

Before you write off “The Hunger Games” as bubblegum-tween trash, think again. Based on the first book in Suzanne Collin’s popular trilogy, “The Hunger Games” has the potential to be the next big hit that attracts girls, boys and adults alike. It’s a unique occurrence when a movie like this is able to break through…

Stars of ‘21 Jump Street’ discuss comedy, fame

In the new big screen adaptation of the popular 80’s TV show “21 Jump Street,” heartthrob Channing Tatum and funny-man Jonah Hill play inept cops who go undercover as high school students to investigate a drug ring. Ice Cube plays Captain Dickson, the man in charge of the undercover cops in this hilarious action-comedy, which…

Cast carries ‘Wanderlust’

Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston are the kind of couple that just naturally exude charm. They’re like Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan – except without the successful track record. Having previously worked together in “The Object Of My Affection” and the TV show “Friends,” I knew they could certainly play off one another well. But…

‘The Vow’ almost wows

Have you ever read an amazing book and, upon finishing, wished you could experience it again for the first time? I know I feel this way all the time. So when Leo (Channing Tatum) compared that situation to his current situation with wife Paige (Rachel McAdams) midway through “The Vow,” I breathed an inward sigh…

New thriller ‘The Grey’ anything but dull

It’s official: Liam Neeson has cemented himself as the world’s favorite new action star. Ever since his ultra-macho turn in “Taken,” people just love to see this guy kick ass. So when I heard of a film about Liam Neeson fighting wolves in the wild, my first thought was, “Well, that’s ridiculous,” and my second…

’50/50′ beats odds

“50/50,” the new cancer comedy based on screenwriter Will Reiser’s experience, isn’t trying to be funny. It isn’t trying to be sad. It sidesteps the opportunity to give into melodrama, and doesn’t create crazy situations in order to squeeze out a laugh from the audience. It’s just a simple story that is extremely well-told. Joseph…

‘Contagion’ leaves the audience hypochondriacal

The film opens with a black screen and the sound of coughing – not just any cough, though; that really phlegmy, wet kind of cough that may just be one of the worst sounds in the world. As that very first sound should have hinted, the cacophony of coughing is one of the sounds that…

‘Scream 4’ just as good as the first

If you’re a Scream aficionado such as myself, then not only are you well-versed in the rules to survive a horror movie, but you’ve been waiting anxiously for the past 10 years to be reunited with Ghostface and the sheer horror that comes from the sound of a phone ringing. After the undeniable train wreak…
