THE DARK KNIGHT RISES is an amazing experience and a flawed movie, both spectacle of the highest order and a house of cards. It’s worthy of your time, attention and love, but it doesn’t rise to the transcendent heights of previous entries in the series.

Movie Review: YOUNG ADULT

  • Array

YOUNG ADULT isn’t just the best drama/comedy of the year, it’s also a horror story that plays out in terrifying slow motion. By the end of the movie, Mavis Gary (Charlize Theron in an inspired role, her best acting since MONSTER) hasn’t changed. In fact she’s become worse, a more insular version of the stifled personality that’s killing her at the beginning of the film, and it seems as though redemption has been lost. Yet the journey to this awful destination is two hours of quality entertainment, and the best that the JUNO creative team of writer Diablo Cody (UNITED STATES OF TARA) and director Jason Reitman (UP IN THE AIR, THANK YOU FOR SMOKING) have yet offered, and a startling reminder that there are still films that don’t require thousands of pounds of dynamite to have the most powerful explosions.
