Cherry Bomb

It's a real dud.


Action

Rod Lott
With the John Cougar Mellencamp song "Cherry Bomb," our hearts were really thumping. With the film Cherry Bomb, however, it barely registers a pulse.

The Expendables 2

Bigger, better, badassier.


Action

Rod Lott
Preceding the start of The Expendables 2 is an ad for its tie-in video game. Why bother playing such a thing when so many sequences of the the movie make you feel like you're doing so already? I mean that as a compliment, because as directed by Simon West (The Mechanic), the sequel’s 15-minute prologue is so unrelenting in nonstop action that it’s likely to turn you giddy.

Hope Springs

And yet it also falls flat.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Meryl Streep is in a rut — not the actress, who's arguably still atop her game in her fifth decade of screen stardom, but the character she plays in Hope Springs. Long married to frowny sad sack Arnold (Lincoln's Tommy Lee Jones, not exactly stretching), Kay feels more like a roommate than a wife. They don't even share a bedroom any more.

Amour

The Oscar-nominated drama is cold-blooded, yet remarkable.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke isn't the obvious choice for a movie about love at its weightiest and most profound. In previous works like Funny Games, The Piano Teacher, The White Ribbon and Caché, he has crafted cinematic nipple twists that tweak audiences while examining humankind at its cruelest.

Dallas Buyers Club

Matthew McConaughy and Jared Leto turn in award-worthy performances in this HIV/AIDS drama.


Drama

Aimee Williams

Ron Woodroof’s story has not been as extensively acknowledged as documented celebrity cases of HIV/ AIDS (e.g. Anthony Perkins, Magic Johnson, Freddie Mercury) and, until now, has remained in the mainstream media’s peripheral.
