Creeks had overflowed. Dirty, muddy water everywhere, way too high to drive through. Actually, impossible to drive through because you wouldn't get through it. You'd lose your car in it.

Week in Film: Million Dollar Arm, A Short History of Decay and More

Marshall Fine | Posted 07.13.2014 | Entertainment

While not perfect, it is more than just a feel-good sports movie about overcoming obstacles (though it is, in fact, that). Million Dollar Arm is less a movie about sports (in this case, baseball) than a film about one man's transformation from sports agent to human being.

While Million Dollar Arm on the surface is about a sport's agent who recruits cricket players from India to be pitchers for the major leagues in America, it is a true story about the power of the spoken word to inspire.

Movie review: Grudge Match

Unfortunately, the script for this film is never sharp or savvy enough to counteract both the ick factor -- two grandfathers beating each other up in boxing trunks -- and just the simple lackluster quality of it all.

This Turkey Day happens to land on a criminally and perennially underappreciated actor's birthday: Ed Harris. Main course or side dish, first billing or second fiddle, Ed Harris is a truly gifted actor deserving of more recognition. So let's give it to him.

I can still vividly recall the night in 1967 when I attended the opening night screening of the film version of Wait Until Dark in New York. Like all red-blooded American guys, I was enchanted with actress Audrey Hepburn (unfortunately, not reciprocated).

Steve Carell is an immensely popular actor. Jim Carrey used to be. Steve Buscemi is an actor's actor, and Olivia Wilde is an up and coming young actress. With all this talent in the cast of one movie, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, it should be a guaranteed success. Guess what folks, it isn't.

This is frankly a terrible film, but ever more disheartening because the material for a decent comedy so obviously exists within the botched final product. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is a missed opportunity.

Movie Review: The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is a movie for 8-year-olds who haven't seen a lot of movies and provide fresh eyes for its tired gags. Anyone older will see every punchline coming long before it arrives.
