Bonus Film Review: Neighbors 2

Kristian Lin
I try not to read other people’s reviews of a movie before I’ve seen it and written up my own critique, but I do try to get a fix on the general tenor of whether people think it’s good, bad, or indifferent. I ...

‘Dear President Obama’ Screening Thursday Night

Jeff Prince
The natural gas drillers who used bullying and deceptive tactics to roll over urban residents in a quest for greed are getting their karmic comeuppance these days. The price of natural gas has plummeted. The industry is reeling...



Mary Elizabeth Winstead finds herself in a concrete prison in "10 Cloverfield Lane."

Bonus Film Review: 10 Cloverfield Lane

Kristian Lin
The headline on the Guardian‘s review of 10 Cloverfield Lane reads “more Hitchcock than Xbox.” I like the British newspaper, but this isn’t one of their better headlines. It engages in a glib comparison ...


Lin Yun receives her, uh, swimming orders in "The Mermaid."

Bonus Film Review: The Mermaid

Kristian Lin
Big movies tend to come out in the Far East around Chinese New Year, and the recent festivities included the likes of Kung Fu Panda 3. However, that movie and everything else got swamped by The Mermaid, an action-comedy that be...

The Caravan Showing At Ridglea Theater On Saturday

Jeff Prince
There are no great movie horses anymore. No Triggers, no Flickas, no Clovers, no Buttermilks. Not even a Mr. Ed. All the great horses, gone. Whoa there, Nellie! The Caravan is an award-winning, 105-minute film that chronicles a...

Bonus Movie Review: Hail, Caesar!

Kristian Lin
Over the weekend, I watched the Super Bowl and got caught up on this week’s movies, and I got far more entertainment value from the latter. This came especially from Hail, Caesar!, which was good enough to make me think o...



Alan Rickman

R.I.P., Alan Rickman

Kristian Lin
I remember the first time I saw Die Hard, there was one scene in particular that impressed me. It was when Alan Rickman’s terrorist leader, Hans Gruber, goes off by himself in the middle of the movie and finds himself sta...

Candy Clark Says Goodbye To Old Pal David Bowie

Jeff Prince
Hearing the news of David Bowie’s death on Sunday made me think of actress Candy Clark, who grew up in Fort Worth, graduated from Trimble Tech, modeled in New York, moved to Hollywood, and starred alongside Bowie in The Man W...



This is the opening of "White God."

The Best Movie Moments of 2015

Kristian Lin
I saw more than 300 new movies in 2015. That’s well ahead of my usual quota for a 12-month period, by something like 10 percent. I’m not entirely sure how I did that. Anyway, I had lots of memories to cull from this year’...


Natalie Press and Emily Blunt in "My Summer of Love."

The Best Movies of 2005

Kristian Lin
I think it was Slate’s Dana Stevens who said that any critic would have to be a masochist to go back and look over their old “10 best movies of the year” lists. If it was her, I have no idea what she means, because I alwa...
