Alex Proyas and Nicolas Cage combine forces to give us one of the most bafflingly bad films in recent memory. Way to go!

Alex Proyas is responsible for the sci-fi noir thriller Dark City (a film which I love to no end). Nicolas Cage, despite having a career which I kindly refer to as spotty, has made some enjoyable flicks over the years, and even picked up an Oscar. The fact that this combination produced a movie such […]

Paul Rudd and Jason Segel star in and carry this very funny if formulaic romantic comedy between a guy who needs a friend and real buddy buddy.

Director Zack Snyder’s adaptation of the revered 1986-87 graphic novel “Watchmen,” written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons, is like the ever-changing mask of its best-drawn character, Rorschach.
