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

Marshall Fine | Posted 07.13.2014 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

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.

Movie Review: 2 Guns

Marshall Fine | Posted 09.29.2013 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

There's been a lot of action at the movies this summer, very little of it memorable. So Baltasar Kormakur's 2 Guns comes as a welcome surprise: a film with the wit, tension and sheer headlong pace to grab and hold your attention for a brisk 106 minutes.
