Tarantino is the Donald Trump of moviemakers. Political correctness does not attach itself to him. If other people had made this movie, they would have been drummed out of the Hollywood community. But Quentin just gets stronger and stronger.

The Hateful Eight: Quentin Tarantino's Intriguing But Bloated Latest Film

Michael Russnow | Posted 12.23.2015 | Entertainment
Michael Russnow

For me, The Hateful Eight was a mixed bag. The performances are first-rate, though the music was overly heavy at times and it occasionally worked against what was happening by overpowering it to make it appear that more was happening than actually was.

Regina Weinreich | Posted 12.20.2015 | Entertainment

The eight gunslingers in Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight really are hateful, so why do we like watching them so much, and so long -- 3-and-a-half hours -- give or take, including an overture and intermission.

Avengers 2: There May Just Be a Pop Epic Somewhere Inside Marvel's 'Disappointing' Age of Ultron Mega-Hit

William Bradley | Posted 07.09.2015 | Entertainment

For what's turned out to be one of the biggest hits of all-time, the not especially felicitously titled Avengers: Age of Ultron has gotten a lot less love and devotion than the numbers would suggest.

Zaki's Review: Avengers: Age of Ultron

Zaki Hasan | Posted 06.29.2015 | Entertainment
Zaki Hasan

The film takes a performance by the impossibly charismatic James Spader, and purposes it in service of an impossibly dull CGI automaton. It's a bit perplexing that Ultron manages to get so much right except for the very villain whose name is in the title.

When it comes to screen spies, 007 is the undisputed distance champion, and where the failed xXx franchise went wrong was in attempting to take the piss out of the old man without first earning that privilege.

Movie Review: Kingsman: The Secret Service -- Bloody Entertaining

Marshall Fine | Posted 04.14.2015 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

When James Bond rebooted with Daniel Craig in Casino Royale, the blend of old-school spy tale and modern-action sensibility seemed right -- if still a little restrained. Imagine now what would happen if James Bond were put in the hands of someone who was willing to not just rethink the secret-agent film but blow it up all together.
