Not enough chills from 'The Wolfman'

By Roger Moore
Joe "Jumanji" Johnston and his screenwriters have stripped much of the mystery out of "The Wolfman," a tale of an English actor (Benicio Del Toro) who is once bitten, twice ravenous. Many of the beheadings and dismemberments (and don't forget disembowelings) happen in front of an entire moonstruck encampment, village or asylum.

'Legion' starts well -- then plunges

By Roger Moore
The diner, as always, is a dive in the desert. There's always a broad slice of humanity in it. And then these mismatched folks — young and old, rich and poor, face real terror and must band together to survive. Because here come the zombies. Or vampires. Or vampire bikers.
