  • THE JUDGE review

    The Judge

    Director David Dobkin shows ambition for days in “The Judge”. That the movie is co-written by the gifted Nick Schenck (“Gran Torino”) is reason enough to recommend it. That the movie features two of the year’s best performances from Robert Downey, Jr. and Robert Duvall raises the bar another notch. So hold on tight.

    “The Judge” is a completely absorbing courtroom drama that threatens to go off the rails several times, but never does. That’s because we are offered the opportunity to watch wonderful actors ...

    Annabelle-585x545-pixels

    Confession: I’m a sucker for James Wan’s horror movies. So naturally I was looking forward to “Annabelle”.

    Last year’s “The Conjuring” took everyone (even non horror fans) by surprise and became a huge hit. Naturally, it had to spawn a prequel.

Indeed, it’s the writing that sets his film apart from the crowd, in harmony with perfect casting, first-rate visual effects, and other key ingredients.

    Like so many other Marvel films, “Guardians” assumes that you’ve already read the books and memorized ...

    It’s tempting to dismiss Michael Bay’s long, loud and preposterous third sequel with one word: crap. On every level, this movie is ridiculously stupid. But there is more to be said about a movie this huge ($210 million spent on robot junk) and this stupid.

    “Age of Extinction” may not be as horrible as “Dark of the Moon” (oh the horror), but it’s still pretty bad. And please, you don’t have to remind me that the original was a huge hit ($700 million worldwide) and the sequels did just as well. I know it’s popular. Then ...
