Ishtar

Don't believe the hype.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Telling the truth can be dangerous business, but here goes: Time slowly is proving me correct in my long-held assertion that Ishtar is a funny movie. Believe it.

Blue Jasmine

Woody Allen's latest is immersed in melancholy as the tale of one woman's yearning for normalcy.


Drama

Aimee Williams
Cinema has seen its fair share of manic females and nervous breakdowns, but no one captures bourgeois-Anglo neurosis as astutely as Woody Allen.

Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie

Mort! Mort! Mort! Mort!


Documentary

Rod Lott
In 1987, The Morton Downey Jr. Show burst out of nowhere — New Jersey, to be precise — and became a near-instant phenomenon, turning its loud-mouthed, chain-smoking host into the titan of trash TV. Less than two years later, ratings plummeted along with Downey's career.

Fright Night 2: New Blood

Fangs for nothing.


Horror

Rod Lott
I'm not surprised Fright Night 2: New Blood was made expressly for home video. What does surprise me is that it is not a sequel at all. It's more or less a remake of 2011's Fright Night remake, but with entirely different actors to give it the unmistakable whiff of fan fiction.
