posted by Nell Minow
C
Lowest Recommended Age:Mature High Schooler

Movie Release Date:April 7, 2012
DVD Release Date:July 10, 2012

Lowest Recommended Age:Mature High Schooler
MPAA Rating:Rated R for pervasive language including sexual references, violence and brief sexuality
Movie Release Date:February 26, 2010
DVD Release Date:July 20, 2010

If you have some affection for the 1980’s-era buddy cop movies (the “Lethal Weapon” series, “Running Scared,” “48 Hours,” etc.), rent one of those. Don’t try to re-create the genre by seeing Kevin Smith’s tired re-tread, “Cop Out,” starring Bruce […]

Best Movies About Writers
Flavorwire has put together a great list of the 50 best movies about writers. It's always tricky to make a writer interesting on film. On one hand, you have the advantage of a character who is likely to be witty and eloquent. Movies are written by writers, so they have some insight and appreciatio

Wrong About Critics, Wrong About Movies, Wrong About Faith
I am not going to give the people behind the idiotic and offensive press release I recently received the recognition of identifying them by name, but the claim that they make is one I have heard often enough I need to respond. The headline: Film Critics Don't Get Faith Films. This shows no understan
