Ex Machina a philosophical look at artifical intelligence

...uncertainty as to the true nature of her character throughout the film. The true star of the film, however, is writer/director Garland, who turns what could be a short "Twilight Zone" kind of tale into a gripping character study. The film...

Inside out color coated memories

...they're going to carry it through for an entire movie." After watching the movie and seeing how masterfully the writers, directors and animators were indeed able to carry the concept through, I realized that I've had this same worry about Pixar...

"Dumb and Dumber To"

...exploits, but the humor is so slight, so easy, so base that I found it hard to believe this was from the same writer/directors. Jim Carrey doesn't seem to have aged much, but as I mentioned, Daniels has, and not well. And poor Kathleen...

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
