Scott Mendelson | Posted 12.11.2011 | Entertainment
Scott Mendelson

The ideas and concepts first found in Frank Miller's Batman: Year One have been so pilfered through over the last 25 years that it feels strange to see this work adapted for film without any narrative alterations.

Roger Wolfson | Posted 09.29.2011 | Entertainment
Roger Wolfson

Spending almost two hours in the dark with Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, Ryan Gosling, and Emma Stone is really so much fun that you're to be forgiven if you don't realize, by the time you walk out, that you've just seen a very important film.

Green Lantern is a deeply problematic comic book adventure, with structural and character development issues that should have felled the film. But like its title character, it overcomes its own weaknesses and embraces its flaws.

HuffPost Review: Red Riding Hood

Scott Mendelson | Posted 05.25.2011 | Entertainment
Scott Mendelson

Red Riding Hood is not what I would call a 'good' movie, but it is an entertaining genre entry. It has an occasionally gripping narrative and a terrifically fun Gary Oldman performance that takes over much of the picture right when it needs an extra jolt.
