Will the real Bond please stand up?

Daniel Craig finally nails spy’s character in ‘Skyfall’

By Dave Taylor
There’s no more iconic spy in Western culture than 007, Bond, James Bond, and with a 50-year cinematic history, the 22 previous films in the franchise also represent an extraordinary body of cinematic work.

8-bit-o’-honey

‘Wreck-It Ralph’ is sticky sweet

By Ryan Syrek
For a generation weaned on more Mario than Mother Goose, Wreck-It Ralph has been a long time coming.

No-town music

‘Detropia’ stylishly shows Detroit’s demise

By Ryan Syrek
At its worst, cinema verite is aimless pretense masquerading as artistic intent. At its best, it is Detropia, a documentary that adds soul to statistics, going inside the implosion of a once-proud city using a sprawling, haunting approach.

Partly sunny

To steal from Mother Goose (don’t worry, she’s dead): When Cloud Atlas is good, it’s very, very good; when it’s bad, Hugo Weaving is doing a drag impression of Nurse Ratched.

Being near Emma Watson

Object of my Affleck-tion

‘Argo’ proves Ben is the real deal

By Ryan Syrek
It’s easy to thrill people when they don’t know what’s coming. OK, maybe not easy — paging Mr. Shyamalan — but certainly less difficult than whipping up tension in a film based on a decades-old actual incident, the resolution of which is but a Google search away.

Comedians sleep standing up

‘Sleepwalk with Me’ gets real, funny

By Ryan Syrek
A note for the admittedly small subset of folks who swoon at the storytelling magic of This American Life and tingle at the mere mention of Ira Glass’s name: Sleepwalk with Me is charming public radio entertainment channeled into cinemas.

Margarine-al humor

‘Butter’ is almost funny

By Ryan Syrek
In the wake a presidential debate that was almost fact-free on one side and nearly lifeless on the other, smearing Butter on one´s eyes seemed like a good option for poll junkies.

Circular logic

'Looper' is a semi-clever time travel tale

By Ryan Syrek
Right when the film needs to kick into a higher gear, opening the futuristic world up for a sizable climax, it downshifts into a muted, quasi-philosophical think-piece set mostly on a Kansas farmstead.
