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 […]

Oscar Nominations 2015

First of all, I’m not sure why I care so much. I said this to my husband this morning after the Academy Award nominations came out and I was thoroughly worked up over how terrible they were. I’m not sure why any of us care so much, actually. Maybe it’s because we see movies to […]

Guardians of the Galaxy

Walt Disney Pictures Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and for some language. Running time: 121 minutes. Three stars out of four.

RogerEbert.com — American Hustle

“American Hustle” is absolutely one of the best films of the year in a year packed with great films. David O. Russell’s ’70s crime romp is ridiculously entertaining in all the best possible ways. My rare four-star RogerEbert.com review. Read the review here

What the Flick?! — American Hustle

We all had a complete blast at “American Hustle,” one of the year’s best films and one that will appear very high on both Alonso’s and my top 10 lists.

Studio 11 LA — The Hobbit, American Hustle

One of the best films of the year, “American Hustle,” is in theaters this weekend. So is the second of Peter Jackson’s three films based on “The Hobbit.” Lauren Sivan and I discuss them, as well as the Screen Actors Guild Award nominations, on Studio 11 LA. Watch the clip here
