RogerEbert.com — Aloha

Cameron Crowe’s latest, “Aloha,” is so baffling that I’m not even going to bother trying to explain the plot to you here. But it definitely shows the signs of massive re-editing, and not in a good way. Maybe a great film is hidden in there somewhere. We’ll have to wait for the director’s cut to […]

Five Great Bill Murray Performances

Bill Murray’s latest film, “St. Vincent,” isn’t exactly one of his greatest. It’s actually kind of mawkish and cringe-inducing. But we’re glass-half-full around here, so we’re going to seize the chance to turn this into a positive. Murray stars as Vincent, an alcoholic, misanthropic veteran living in a run-down Brooklyn home.

On Harold Ramis, 1944-2014

There’s no way any of us realized in the moment how great Harold Ramis was. The comedies he directed, wrote and/or co-starred in have seeped into our systems through our pores and entered our DNA by this point — especially for those of us who grew up in the 1980s. We’ve all seen “Animal House,” […]

George Clooney, as director, co-writer and star, put together an impressive cast to tell the story of a group of art historians who went behind enemy lines during World War II to recover millions of paintings and scultpures that Hitler stole. But the film is strangely dull and tonally off, and watching Clooney interact with […]
