'Book of Eli' stylized but silly

By Roger Moore
He is a loner, trudging in battered shoes across a sun-blasted landscape. He has a worn-out coat, a tattered backpack and sunglasses. He's needed them ever since that day, 30 years before, "when the bomb blew a hole in the sky."

'Spy Next Door' is limp and lifeless

By Roger Moore
"Every day you get older," Butch Cassidy once griped to The Sundance Kid. "It's the law!" Even, it would appear, for Jackie Chan.

'Daybreakers' follows standard vampire flick model

Despite cast, 'Nine' is a bore

By Roger Moore
How can a movie starring six Academy Award-winning actors be such a bore? With "Nine," the director of "Chicago" manages this feat. But whatever blame one might be tempted to lay on Rob Marshall, the fault, it seems to me, lies in the play.

'Sherlock Holmes' feels elementary

By Roger Moore

'It's Complicated' actually isn't

By Roger Moore
Nancy Meyers — that rare Hollywood voice for What Women Want, especially "women of a certain age," ("Something's Gotta Give") — makes Meryl Streep her muse for "It's Complicated," a tale of an ex-wife who becomes "the other woman" when her husband figures out what he gave up and starts cheating with her.

'Chipmunks' sequel should've been roadkill

By Roger Moore
"Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel" is a kids comedy that screams "Direct to DVD." It doesn't help that it screams that in high, squeaky, three-part harmony.
