Errol Morris’s legendary documentary that spared a man’s life, forever changed the genre, and continues to move audiences as an audacious work of art.

Brief reviews of ‘Ted,’ ‘The Amazing Spiderman,’ and ‘Superman: The Movie.’
Tarantino’s latest gets a beautiful but messy trailer. Everything in it looks good, but the presentation is lacking.
This week I only found three films even worth writing about. Better to stay at the theater for now. It’s summer after all.
These are my top 5 DVD releases this week and a bit of uncalled for Oscar prognostication from yours truly…
For the next month, the Film Misery Staff will be reviewing several of our favorite romantic comedies through the ages!
This week is low on offerings, starting off 2012 on a rather low note in my book as I offer my opinions in one of the most cynical posts I’ve ever written.
These are my top ten films of what I consider to be a quite remarkable year of cinema!
‘Midnight in Paris’ finds its charm in pure, unadultered literary enchantment.
‘Young Adult’ is daring and unconventional, and likely won’t sit well with mass audiences. But it sat well with me. It hit the nail right on the head, without missing many beats.
Avoid sitting in front of the TV this week. It’s Christmas. If you want to watch a film with your family this break, head off to the theater where you’ll find Scorsese, Spielberg, Fincher, Reitman, or Cameron Crowe waiting for you.
Although ‘My Blueberry Nights’ is a love story, much of the film is devoted to the pain of failed relationships, which creates a powerful depiction of earnestness of a potentially working one.
‘The Tree of Life’ is a solid film from a great director that could have been much more.
A weak assortment of films has me reaching once again to older films, criterion releases, and a superhero film. Reviews coming this week!
‘The Tree of Life’ hits the shelves for the arthouse fans, and ‘The Green Lantern’ continues the Marvel madness!
‘Submarine’ is one of the most daring films of the year. And it does so without flaunting inorganically.
The two lead actors cleverly play back and forth in a sort of Yin-Yang of stoicism versus charm. But just like everything else in the film, it generically feels half-baked.
Although I am very much excited to see how the Occupy Wall Street stirrings will effect the box office of a politically minded thriller. It should be interesting; but honestly nothing peaks my interest as much as these top five films.
‘Thor’ is still a hell of a lot of fun and alarmingly sane for such a cheesy, otherwordly story.
It looks like this is the end of the early year releases and the beginning of summer films finding their way to DVD.
