Now Playing:

“The Heat” – Lazy, slovenly made and excruciatingly unfunny, this inept odd couple/cop/buddy “comedy” is the most cynical and depressing movie released so far this year. (D-).

“White House Down” – 100 times better than the idiotic albeit similarly plotted “Olympus Has Fallen,” Roland (“Independence Day,” “2012”) Emmerich’s POTUS-in-peril cum disaster movie is the best Hollywood popcorn flick in eons. A refreshing throwback to the halycon days of “Die Hard” and “Lethal Weapon” (the originals, not the lesser sequels), it proves you don’t need comic book superheroes to mount an entertaining 21st century action tentpole. (A-).

New on DVD:

“The House I Live In” – Award-winning documentarian Eugene Jarecki’s sobering, infuriating and wildly provocative look at the history of America’s “War on Drugs” deserves to be seen by every sentient American above the age of 16. (A).
