Movie review: 'Million Dollar Arm'
By Carl Kozlowski

One thing is for certain when it comes to Hollywood’s movie releases most weekends: there’s usually a pretty clear contrast between the new movies. That’s certainly the case this weekend, with the competing debuts of the umpteenth version of a “Godzilla” monster movie, and the inspirational Disney-made sports film “Million Dollar Arm.”

You could watch the giant radioactive lizard-beast rampage across cities, causing wanton destruction everywhere – after all, it’s...

Movie reviews: 'Chef' and 'Mom's Night Out'
By Carl Kozlowski

This Sunday is Mother’s Day, and one of the many ways to spend some time with yours is by seeing a film. But in a world packed with movies starring Spider-Man and Captain America, catching a flick might not seem so appealing to her.

Thankfully, there are a couple of alternatives coming out this weekend that are a refreshing change from the usual summer shoot-‘em-ups, and which instead focus on normal people with relatable lives dealing with their problems in funny fashion. “Chef” is a...

Spider Man 2 review
By Carl Kozlowski

Most superheroes seem larger than life, even in their human alter egos. Superman’s Clark Kent keeps most of his powers even when he’s out of his suit, while Batman’s Bruce Wayne is still a billionaire who knows how to destroy opponents with martial arts and keeps the keys to the Batmobile.

But when the “Spider-Man” films were launched in 2002, star Tobey Maguire and director Sam Raimi gave us a truly human, decent and sympathetic teenage hero in Peter Parker. Learning such life...

These days, women can do just about anything men can in movies – including starring in gross-out comedies. Ever since “Bridesmaids” was a smash in theatres three years ago, there has been a steady stream of other female-driven movies which have tried to out-gross that film both in actual content and box-office earnings.

Most of those movies are so poorly made and tasteless that they go straight to DVD or Video On Demand release, but this weekend the new movie “The Other Woman” has...

Movie reviews: 'Heaven is for Real' and 'Joe'
By Carl Kozlowski

Easter is a time of rebirth and redemption, and so it is perfect that this Easter weekend is the time that Sony Pictures picked to release the new film “Heaven Is For Real” into theatres. Based on the purportedly true story of a young boy who claimed to visit Heaven and came back to write a mega-bestselling book about it with his pastor father, the film is the latest in a string of Christian-themed movies that have been scoring impressive runs at the nation’s box offices this...

Movie review: Draft Day
By Carl Kozlowski

Any good film manages to immerse its audience in the world of its characters, drawing viewers in to share the lives, and dilemmas of the people on screen. But the mark of a great film comes when it can lure the interest of an audience that initially doesn’t even care about the subject matter.

The new movie “Draft Day” flirts with greatness by doing just that. Following a nerve-wracking 13 hours in the life of Sonny Weaver Jr. (Kevin Costner), the general manager of the Cleveland...

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review
By Carl Kozlowski

There’s a theory held by some movie fans that says that when a conspiracy thriller or sci-fi movie has a plot line about the destruction of mass amounts of humanity, the filmmakers are actually trying to warn viewers of real-life doom through clues in the fictional plotline. If that’s the case, then the team behind the new movie “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is working overtime to scare us.

A sequel to the hit 2011 movie “Captain America: The First Avenger,”...

Movie reviews: 'Cesar Chavez' and 'Noah'
By Carl Kozlowski

It’s rare that one might find migrant worker leader Cesar Chavez and Noah of the Ark fame compared to each other, but today’s the day to do it if you’re ever going to try. After all, they’re two stubborn leaders, living thousands of years apart, yet both felt they were called by God to lead the way for their people – and now have new biographical films released on the same day.

The first, “Cesar Chavez,” is a low-budget ($10 million) effort that is so earnest and...

'Divergent' review
By Carl Kozlowski

I grew up in the 1980s, when teen movies were an enormous moneymaker for Hollywood thanks largely to John Hughes. He created an incredible string of hits that have passed the test of time: “Pretty in Pink,” “The Breakfast Club,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” were just three of his fun, touching and indelible portraits of what it’s like to be a teenager with all its angst-ridden drama.

But they truly don’t make ‘em like they used to. Flash-forward 30 years, and the...

Movie reviews: 'Need For Speed' and 'Bad Words'
By Carl Kozlowski

This weekend marks the release of two films I had reasonably high hopes for, due to their lead actors. Unfortunately, the highest of hopes can be dashed by harsh realities, and the ugly truth about the new chase thriller “Need for Speed” and the vile new comedy “Bad Words” is that they are truly awful rather than awesome.

In fact, they’re so bad that they almost made me decide to quit reviewing movies and seek a new career path. Even when watching them for free, and getting...
