'Atlas Shrugged' Champions Capitalism, Denounces Corporatism, and Exposes Hypocrisynew

If you ask the average film critic about the new motion picture adaptation of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, they will tell you it is a horrible movie.

'Avatar': On Top of a Distant Worldnew

As we sit in the darkened cinema (or, increasingly, in our living rooms), so much of what is clearly meant to dazzle us feels like a demonstration more than an application, an elaborate demo reel in search of meaning and purpose. James Cameron returns to bridge the gap.

Dragging 'Titanic': James Cameron's Opus is all Wet

The most expensive film ever made leaves much to be desired. Paralyzed from the waist down, former Marine Jake Sully (Sam Worthington - Terminator Salvation) voices several movies worth of tell-don't-show narration for the benefit of audiences who like being read to when they watch a movie.
