The World's End (2013)

In The World's End, the new movie by director Edgar Wright and actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, "the world's end" is the name of a pub, though I suppose it's implied that some kind of sci-fi thing happens to send the world spinning into chaos. Many people are going to spend paragraphs talking about whether or not to give away that thing. However, I'm not going to talk about it. I'm going to talk about something more important, which is the human factor of this movie. read more...

Directed by Brad Bird, The Iron Giant one-ups Tarzan as the best animated family movie of the summer and, for that matter, in quite some time.

Monsters University (2013)

When I reviewed Pixar's Ratatouille in 2007, I wrote: "Animation studio Pixar is so far ahead of its competitors that the question regarding any new releases is not whether it's any good, but whether it's great." And this written was before the studio had reached true greatness with WALL-E (2008) and Up (2009), and also before they made their first stinker, Cars 2 (2011). Even so, that statement remains true today, and Monsters University is a good one, even if it's not a great one. read more...

Seven Psychopaths (2012)

The acclaimed Irish playwright Martin McDonagh won an Oscar for his short film Six Shooter (2005) and received a screenwriting nomination for his feature debut In Bruges (2008). With the terrific Seven Psychopaths he continues this mixture of crime and dark comedy, but this time he adds a layer of self-awareness, deconstructing both the writing process and the need for conflict (and/or violence) in writing. read more...
