“Lars and the Real Girl” is an slightly absurdist and truly original story about family and love. It is incredibly well executed and the acting is ridiculously good. Ryan Gosling actually deserves an Oscar nomination. Do not seek out or read a plot summary of this film, should you stumble upon one. It was a [...]

Every Halloween, video stores are bombarded with the same question: “Do you know any good horror movies I haven’t seen yet?” Believe me, I know– I used to work at one.

One of the toughest and most intangible things for a first-time director to capture onscreen is a consistent mood or tone. In his directorial debut, Ben Affleck creates a strong sense of locale that permeates the entire story and becomes its most affecting element. It is familiar turf for Boston native Affleck, and his movie [...]

in Top 10s

As far as I can tell, the Farrelly Brothers did just one thing that’s different in this movie than they’ve done in their previous films. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you what that is without ruining the ending. So, lets talk about what they did…again. Eddie Cantrow (Ben Stiller) is a commitment-phobic sporting goods store owner [...]
