Movie review: Lots of fun on the way to 'World's End'

Anchorman 2 an exception to rule

...rehash of the funniest bits from the first movie, the "Anchorman" sequel is really playing to its strengths. Maybe writer/director Adam McKay and writer/star Will Ferrell can be accused of playing it safe, but really, why not? People going...

'Obama's America' draws conclusions without any facts

...just plain terrible. D'Souza clearly thinks of himself as a counterpart to Michael Moore. Not only is he the writer/director, but he's also the star. The film starts out with some background. D'Souza, like Obama, is the child of...

Reeling It In: The best of films, the worst of films

...toward the end, but it's still a great genre flick and a lot of fun to watch. "The Social Network" Wow. Only a writer/director team as accomplished as David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin could turn the story of an introverted guy who comes up with...

Movie review: A big story to tell in 'Oblivion'

Reeling It In: This comedy really tries hard

...role of the uptight, oblivious nerd, his manic side barely contained by a nearly impenetrable wall of positivity. Writer/director McKay, who tunes Ferrell's roles to the actor's exact rhythm, wisely includes scenes where these carefully...

'Sky Captain' starts soaring, doesn't end so high
