    'Gravity,' '12 Years,' 'Hustle' have more in common than Oscar hopes
    It isn't like last year, when it was down to "Argo" and "Lincoln," and it was already looking like "Argo." This year's Academy Awards ceremony, to be March 2, feels to me like a tricky three-way scenario among "American Hustle," "Gravity" and "12 Years...

    REVIEW: 'Muppets Most Wanted' ★&#9733
    High spirits and good times are hard to come by in "Muppets Most Wanted," the anxious follow-up to the commercially successful 2011 reboot ("The Muppets") and the seventh Muppet sequel to follow in the animal tracks of "The Muppet Movie" in 1979. I'm...

    Who should win at Sunday's Golden Globes
    Reminder: The Golden Globes are not an actual predictor of the Academy Awards. They may share winners, but the voting bodies are completely different, as the Globes are chosen by the secret society that is the Hollywood Foreign Press. Still, Sunday's...
  • Review: 'Her' ★★★★

    Review: 'Her' ★★★&#9733
    A delicate, droll masterwork, writer-director Spike Jonze's "Her" sticks its neck out, all the way out, asserting that what the world needs now and evermore is love, sweet love. Preferably between humans, but you can't have everything all the time. It...

    'American Hustle' review: Electric lady land
    **1/2 (out of four) In early December, the New York Film Critics Circle awarded director/co-writer David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” Best Picture and Best Screenplay. That’s pushing it. Lacking the confidence of Russell’...

    Gene Kelly plays <i>way</i> against type in the 1944 noir 'Christmas Holiday'
    Looking over the Siskel Film Center schedule recently, a little-known film from 1944 called "Christmas Holiday" starring Gene Kelly caught my eye. Hang on. Hang on! Gene Kelly made a Christmas movie? How have I missed this? "It's one of the oddest...
  • 'Julie & Julia' recalls blogging's simpler times

    'Julie & Julia' recalls blogging's simpler times
    The new film Julie & Julia is more than a look at two women, separated by half a century, who both find joy in cooking the same French recipes. It made me hunger for the days when blogging was pure. The movie, which has been called the first major...

    'Man of Steel' follows the grim path first trod by the Dark Knight &#9733;&#9733; 1/2
    Thanks, "Man of Steel." Because of the scene where Superman battles two of his adversaries from the planet Krypton in downtown Smallville, wrecking most of an IHOP and a Sears store, I now associate pancakes and appliances with pain and suffering. A...
  • Happy face/sad face reaction: 2013 Oscar nominations

     Happy face/sad face reaction: 2013 Oscar nominations
    As always, this morning’s Oscar nominations created a roller coaster of emotion. Shock! Relief! Fury! I should not get so worked up about this. Really, though, the nods for the 2013 Academy Awards had a few more big surprises than usual—or...
