Film Review: Get Him to the Greek

A spin-off from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek focuses on Russell Brand’s rock star character Aldous Snow.

Film Review: Sex and the City 2

Liza Minnelli singing ‘Single Ladies’ is the highlight of Sex and the City 2. Although there are other entertaining moments in the film, there are also a number of troubling issues.

Film Review: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

After the king is murdered, Dastan must prove his […]
