Unneccesary 3D, and too long, but other than that...

By god (pun intended) did “Thor” ever give me a headache.

Daydream Nation

Watchable, if beguiling, drama that tries hard to be hip


Rod Lott
"Daydream Nation" was and is the title of a seminal alt-rock album: Sonic Youth's 1988 LP.

Kill the Irishman

Plays like a greatest hits of mob movies, but so what?


Rod Lott
“Kill the Irishman" begins with a bang, figuratively and literally, with a kinda-fake-looking exploding car just like the one that went kablooey in the opening moments of Martin Scorsese's "Casino."

The Three Musketeers

All for one, and all that jazz.


Rod Lott
All these centuries, who knew Alexandre Dumas' most famous novel needed ninjas? At least I think that's what you could call the hooded warrior who emerges from the water with weapon at the ready at the opening of The Three Musketeers, Hollywood's latest in a long line of adaptations of the 1884 classic, this ship steered with a steampunk touch by Paul W.S. Anderson, whose adventure credits include Death Race, Alien vs. Predator and Mortal Kombat.

The Avengers

So many superheroes, so little satisfaction.


Rod Lott
I swear I’m not playing the contrarian card for the sake of doing so, but I disliked The Avengers — not with a passion, but mere disengagement. With the exception of Thor, I loved all the films leading up to this ultimate one, from 2008’s Iron Man to last summer’s Captain America: The First Avenger. I even entered this one carrying next-to-no expectations.

Captain America: The First Avenger

Enlist in 'Captain America,' the final and finest superhero adventure of a summer season flooded with them.


Rod Lott
"Captain America: The First Avenger" is Marvel's third — third! — superhero movie just this summer, following "Thor" and "X-Men: First Class," so it would be reasonable to expect audiences to be burned out on men in tights.
