“Kick-Ass” revels in its transgressive, nasty brutishness, and its audience will, too. Of course, it’s one thing to have a 11-year-old girl in a comic book use very strong language and kill lots of people and it is another thing […]

The weather is getting warmer, which means it must be time for some movies about BLOWING STUFF UP! And so we have “The Losers,” based on a comic book originally set in WWII but updated by Andy Diggle. The name […]

If there is ever an Oscar category for best performance by an article of clothing, the red tie worn by the title character in this film would be the clear winner and the rain coat would most likely be the […]

Nasty, twisted, pulpy, and brutally violent, “Wanted” is like a cross between Kill Bill, The Matrix, and The Terminator. Angelina Jolie, smokey-eyed and a little bit leaner, plays the assassin who grabs cubicle galley slave Wesley (“Atonement’s” James McAvoy) when […]

Remember when “Superman” was released with the tagline, “You will believe a man can fly?” Well, “Spider-Man” will not only make you believe that a teenager can swing from the skyscrapers; it will almost make you believe that you are […]
