Entourage: “Once again, nothing happens, just for longer.” — Simon Miraudo, Student Edge San Andreas: “Exactly the movie you suppose it to be, except in one, absolutely crucial regard: it’s weirdly allergic to fun.” — Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy Aloha: “Between the lush tropical scenery and the beautiful faces in the cast, there’s plenty […]

The evergreen Broadway musical ‘Annie’ strays far from its Depression-era roots with truly dismaying results in this crass, charmless, […]

Divergent: “Barely diverting” — Bruce Diones, The New Yorker Sabotage: “This is the type of movie best enjoyed as a late-night indulgence on cable.
