The release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier this weekend has thrown off our internal summer clocks. Between that and the nearly twenty minutes of footage that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has already released, it feels like we haven't heard much from Godzilla, even though it's not due out for another month and a...

There's been so many periods to Woody Allen's career, that it's hard to tell what phase he's in now, but he seems to be in a hot stretch. Blue Jasmine is his latest, and though (like so much of his recent work) it's familiar, it's also a strong sketch of a woman who's been destroyed by modern finances and  is trying to put her life back together.

Blue Jasmine
It's hard to get a read on Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine, as it looks like it could one of his more serious movies, though there are moments in the trailer that suggest there are some jokes to be found here and there (though they may not be that funny). But as great as a cast as he's assembled, as evinced above, there's something kind of crazy and awesome about Andrew...

The drama is made with a bit of horror, not something you normally would equate with a Charlotte Brontë 19th century novel, but it definitely makes the film appealing to not only the romantic film-goers but to those looking for something more. Find out what...

Sundance 2011: Review--Richard Ayoade's Submarine Doesn't Disappoint

Submarine 1-25-11 ckk
I could kiss Richard Ayoade, and very nearly did when I ran into him between screenings at Sundance. Not only is he devilishly handsome, but he's proven himself as a writer and director with his new film.  Submarine is one of those films you find yourself daydreaming about days after. It's not the story itself that really sticks with you, it's the...
