To dream in the dark: Scott Marks says, “That’s all, folks!”

After what management said, I found it impossible to continue any further as The Reader’s film critic. What did they say? “Scott, I’m sorry to say we’re laying you off.” The real shocker is that, ...

Who fired the shot or shots that killed Pat Tillman?

This week’s trio was found lounging in an unmarked file box, stuffed with DVD screeners and buried deep in the inner-recesses of my storage locker. The Tillman Story (2010) Director Amir Bar-Lev (My Kid Could ...

Sammy Davis, Jr.’s “Salt” meets Peter Lawford’s “Pepper”

Democrats in Washington could stand to take a lesson from Hollywood’s demise in the late ‘60s. Voters’ cries for something new, something different, something progressive in a president were answered with a pair of starchy ...

The To Do List

There is something stupid-hot about the thought of a monotone, glassy-eyed chick whose frozen kisser prohibits her from cracking a smile while having indiscriminate sex with an array of partners. This is precisely why audiences will want to skip this ...

The Good Mother

The adaptation of Sue Miller's novel dawdles through some biographical background of doubtful import, and through a standard movie romance blossoming out of a Meet-Cute at the laundromat (she has removed his wet underwear from the dryer in his absence, ...

by Duncan Shepherd
Goldfinger

The first of the Bond movies self-consciously to flout the tendency of some commentators to tsk-tsk about the sex and violence of the series, and the first of them to exhibit a formidable degree of self-assurance about establishing a separate ...

Happiest Season

Harper (Mackenzie Davis) invites Abby (Kristen Stewart) to meet her parents and two sisters, all of whom are are operating under false pretenses: Abby was assured by Harper that her potential in-laws would be accepting of their “lifestyle choice,” while ...

Thunderball

Sean Connery's James Bond act at its most blasé. In the fourth installment of the series, there's an almost complete surrender to gadgetry, as 007 flies like Mighty Mouse through sky and sea, en route to thwarting a plot involving ...
