Les swing and les miss

'Les MisÚrables' is the nail in the coffin

By Ryan Syrek
Two minutes in: You can do this, Ryan. Sure, a three-hour film version of a Broadway musical is a dry way to waterboard you, but people say Les MisÚrables is the best adaptation yet. Maybe this is the one that finally changes your mind. Five minutes in: Nope. This is my personal hell.

Cotillard’s coattails

‘Rust and Bone’ hops a ride on Marion’s talent

By Ryan Syrek

Sherlock Homeless

‘Jack Reacher’ is one smart drifter

By Ryan Syrek
Jack Reacher, the hero of Jack Reacher (in case you were confused), is a drifter with nothing to lose. We know this because that is exactly what Tom Cruise says he is while yelling at a bad guy on the phone, Taken-style.

Poor 2013: Films in the coming year

By Ryan Syrek
Listen, 2013, you look cool. You really do, with your new Superman movie and lack of Twilight. It’s just, well, your older sibling (2012) was super crazy awesome.

Dwarfing expectations

‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ is expectedly awesome

By Ryan Syrek
We are masters of cynicism, proudly sporting a black belt in backlash. If this generation of critics, pseudo-critics and armchair-article-writing audience members given the bully pulpit of social media has any legacy, it will be bitching for bitching’s sake.

The black market meets the stock market

‘Killing Them Softly’ shorts a promising premise

By David Accomazzo
Killing Them Softly is an ambitious mashup of black market and stock market politics, wrapped in the guise of a straight-up crime movie. If that sounds like it’d be hard to pull off, it is.

Hawkes’ virginity Hunt-ed

‘The Sessions’ is sweetly sexual

By Ryan Syrek
America’s Puritanical origins mean that “sweetly sexual” may sound oxymoronic, but that phrase absolutely defines The Sessions, the softest and kindest movie to ever feature a star of Mad About You buck nekkid.
