Film Review: ‘Unfinished Business’ is an Unfunny Vocation

CHICAGO – Have you ever seen a film where they throw everything against a wall to see what sticks? The appropriately titled “Unfinished Business” is a throwing machine, taking the flimsy premise of a business trip and using it as an excuse for a splattering of jokes that mostly don’t work.

TV Review: HBO’s ‘The Girl’ Presents Intersection of Madness, Genius

CHICAGO – Alfred Hitchcock is inarguably one of the most important and influential directors in the history of cinema. There’s no debate or controversy regarding his agreed-upon genius.

DVD Review: ‘The September Issue’ is Jam-Packed With Fashionable Footage

The September Issue DVD

  • Sherlock Holmes with David Arquette (teaser)

    CHICAGO – Different isn’t bad and might be great, but you’d better have an irrefutable reason to change what was never broken.
