“The Babadook” is proof that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Based on this Australian horror film’s trailer — or even a synopsis of the plot, which involves a boogeyman who seems to have stepped out of a picture book — there isn’t much to distinguish it from other similar frightfests. Yet, as it turns out, the feature debut of writer-director Jennifer Kent is not just genuinely scary, but also a beautifully told tale of a mother and son, enriched with layers of contradiction and ambiguity.
Gov’t Mule covers Pink Floyd on new live album
When you’re playing music for 20 years with the caveat that no two shows will ever be the same, you had better write a lot of music, or cover some great songs. Gov’t Mule does both pretty well, most notably during a Halloween concert in Boston back in 2008. For that marathon show, the jam band played some of their own songs, then covered Pink Floyd in the next two sets. The album title is a play on words, obviously referring to Pink Floyd’s seminal 1973 album, “Dark Side of the Moon.”
Gire: Effects trump intelligence in ‘Night at the Museum’
“Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb” bears all the telltale signs of a feckless children’s fantasy put together by filmmakers who’ve squandered a terrific opportunity to construct a comedy capable of promoting history, learning and research. Instead of crafting a meaningful family comedy with some low level of educational integrity, Shawn Levy and his cohorts merely string together a series of sensational, kiddie-pleasing visuals.
How Kim Jong Un became the target of ‘The Interview’
A few weeks ago, when Seth Rogen sat down for a lunch interview about “The Interview,” the likelihood of trouble seemed remote. “You’re always hoping nothing horrible is going to happen, obviously,” said Rogen. “If something horrible happened and they were like, ‘It’s inappropriate to release this movie now,’ we’d ultimately go, ‘Yeah, we got to make it and got paid in advance.’” Unfortunately, Rogen’s chuckling hypothetical has come to pass.
Updated 'Annie' falls short on charm
Director Will Gluck and company have made the story of spunky "Annie" and its songs their own. But, aside from originality points, this new updated “Annie” is a charmless and grossly materialistic bore, especially for now-adults of a certain age who still hold the '82 version in high regard.
