    DVD Review: Fantasy's visuals outshine a lame premise in 'Upside Down'
    I don't know how I missed "Upside Down" when it was released theatrically in March. The plot of Juan Solanas's simultaneously beautiful and stupid fantasy film includes both amnesia and a speculative "what if" reality — both of which are among my...

    'Cloud Atlas' review: A historic mess
    * (out of four) Hokum of monumental proportions is still hokum. Watch the 6-minute “Cloud Atlas” trailer about 30 times and you’ll have an idea of what it’s like to sit through this epic disaster, which never bores but never...

    Topsy-turvy romance 'Upside Down' turns out to be a bit flat ★★
    All you need is love, according to "Upside Down," to save your planet from the dystopian doldrums. Nice sentiment: Fritz Lang's "Metropolis," among others, got there first. This new movie — like its heroine, a little foggy in the noggin — is...
