Best and worst films of 2014

Every year at this time I read list after list of top tens from different critics and every one boils down to the same sentiment. "Even though I hate the very idea of a top ten list, the public demands it so I guess I'm forced to do it.

Reeling it in: Have some time off? The movies are on

With the Christmas holidays in full-swing, I, like most people, had some amount of free time in the last week. As a freelance designer, I tend to work when my clients need me, and since most of them took the holidays off, so did I.

NEW YORK (AP) - The Fourth of July went off like a dud at the box office, as the Michael Bay sequel "Transformers: Age of Extinction" and the Melisa McCarthy comedy "Tammy" led the weakest summer holiday weekend in at least a decade.

And the award goes to ...

I read a lot of movie-geek kind of news -- different blogs and websites filled with mostly nonsense about the latest slasher movie or some little seen Japanese anime film finally getting a U.S. release at one theater in Austin. The guys who work for these sites tend to consider themselves pure and unfettered by corporate considerations and unswayed by the bloviating opinions of the mainstream critics. They are, for the most part, adequate writers with a few very interesting, cogent opinions on film, but mostly they're irritating.

'Apes' impresses human: remake has confidence, maturity

When I was a kid, I was a huge fan of the original "Planet of the Apes." I thought it was just because there were cool guys in monkey costumes, not to mention the scantily clad slave girl, Nova. At twelve, that was about as far as I took it. But as I got older, I realized the movie is a lot deeper and carries much broader implications than I originally thought.

Drama palpable in 'Argo'

Iran is our enemy. I mean, that's pretty well accepted by most people of either political persuasion. Granted, it's a simplistic view of a complicated and diverse group of people - one of the youngest populations in the Middle East, but as a practical matter, the basic national interests of the country seem to run counter to ours, and we're at odds. Fine.
