‘Carrie’ Review

For a gal named Carrie White, she's sure got a lot of red on her.

Watching Kimberly Peirce's 'Carrie' is an odd experience. If you've seen Brian De Palma's version from 1976, this new version is - and there's really no point in denying this - like watching a cover band. There's a tweaked scene here and there (including a new, creepy-as-heck opening) plus the addition of cell phones and references to 'Dancing With The Stars.' This remake, more than most, really feels like hitting the same marks. It may be a peculiarity specific to 'Carrie,' because, let's face it, not a whole heck of a lot happens in this story. Considering most moviegoers' familiarity, there's plenty of room to stew and think, "Why is this considered such a classic?"

‘Don Jon’ Review

Before I write anything else about 'Don Jon': yes, there are some guys in Northern New Jersey who really do act this way. Some of the particulars are exaggerated, but not really. Whether the interior life of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's protagonist gym rat, club denizen, muscle car driver is accurate is something I'll never know, and considering the emotional dysfunction on display, I think I'm okay with it.

What Bad Purchases Have You Made That You Want to Warn Others About?

What bad purchases have you made that you want to warn others about? What are you scared to buy based on what you've heard? When I bought a 50" TV I also purchased a 3 year extended warranty. Guess what? Three years and three months later, it needed a $500 repair, no help at all from the warranty company. Never again.

‘Now You See Me’ Review

The magic of cinema and the magic of magic tend to cancel each other out. Once you convince someone they're seeing alternate realities, alien conquerers, and distant futures, pulling a rabbit out of a hat looks a little underwhelming. It is a cruel, sad truth that a single cut negates all the impact of the greatest act of sleight of hand.

So, a movie about magic needs to be about more than just magic. The silly but not entirely unpleasurable 'Now You See Me' is about showmanship. There are a lot of good actors in this movie, including Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Melanie Laurent, and Mark Ruffalo. They play illusionists, mentalists, hucksters, debunkers, billionaire industrialists, Interpol officers, and FBI agents, respectively(ish). All of them, no matter whether they're wool-pullers or wool-pullees, look like they're having a grand old time misdirecting us through a labyrinthine plot involving magicians, bank heists, and decades-old vendettas. For a while, the fun is infectious. I found myself chuckling at the outrageous character names -- Dylan Rhodes! Jack Wilder! Arthur Tressler! Thaddeus Bradley! J. Daniel Atlas! -- and grinning at the ludicrous twists. Like a mark at a good magic act, I knew I was being worked over and was enjoying every second.

What Does The ‘G’ Stand For With 4G Phones?

If you know the answer you're under the age of 35 or a smart middle-aged person. I am not. When I was in Florida spending time with Dad and many people in their 70s, they looked at my 4G phone like I was some sort of time traveler. "What does the 'G' stand for", asked a 79 year old friend of my father. Embarrassed I replied, "ummm, gooder?"

‘Warm Bodies’ Review

'Warm Bodies' is a supernatural teen love story with a brain. (Excuse me. . .BRAINS!) It is hardly a memorable film, and certainly a step back for director Jonathan Levine after the masterful '50/50,' but it's cute, and if you are a high schooler looking for a date flick or slightly older and chaperoning your niece you could do a hell of a lot worse.

Taylor Swift, ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ – Song Review

"I knew you were trouble when you walked in / So shame on me now," Taylor Swift laments on 'I Knew You Were Trouble,' another promotional single from 'Red,' due Oct. 22. Other than 'Back to December' off of 'Speak Now,' this may be the first single in which Swift, however indirectly, takes responsibility for her role in a failed relationship -- and that maturity suits her, though it may not always make for easy listening.
