Philomena, evil nuns and AIDS

A fairly phenomenal film

Frozen is a bit childish, but that's OK

You say you want a revolution?

Bad advice

'The Counselor' is Cormac-whacked

By Ryan Syrek
Featuring an all-star cast of irreproachable actors ... and also Cameron Diaz, The Counselor had Ridley Scott at the helm and an original screenplay written by Cormac McCarthy.

Grindhouse ground out

'Machete Kills' and no one cares
