For ‘Once,’ Carney Casts Musicians – Not Actors – in Masterful Musical

Rating: 4.5/5CHICAGO – To purely document the life of a street-singing busker, “Once” director John Carney didn’t engage actors. He married musicians.

‘Shrek the Third’ is Foxy Flirt Between Kid’s Play, Adult Wit

Rating: 3.5/5CHICAGO – To thwart his fate of being royally screwed (“mommy, what does that mean?”), the ornery ogre who smells like the shallow end of a swamp has unwavering resolve to crown someone else as proxy for his kingdom’s recently croaked king.

‘28 Weeks Later’ is Heart-Palpitating, Seat-Jittering Gore Fest

Rating: 2.5/5CHICAGO – Having sold so many on a first film that’s watertight in warranting a second, a sequel answers to a much higher authority.

Tobey Maguire ‘Black’ in Action in Venomously Conflicted ‘Spider-Man 3’

Rating: 3.5/5CHICAGO – At the heart of every great film is a good conflict. In Spidey’s third advent, his heart is venomously conflicted and so is the film.

The film gets gargantuan props on its special effects. Of course, the entertaining visual acuity is expected and is no surprise.

‘The Condemned’ Attempts to Validate Violence With Provocative Concepts

Rating: 2/5CHICAGO – This is why wrestlers wrestle and actors act.

The Condemned” tobogganed downhill the second it splashed the WWE on an introductory screen. Sure, you know the WWF, but you may be learning for the first time about World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc.
