Mobsters Rating: Somewhere between the casting of Julia Roberts as the evil queen and the first buffoonish trailer, I lost all possible interest in Tarsem Singh’s Mirror, Mirror. Of the two competing Snow White movies, I thought it was this summer’s Huntsman that really resembled a Tarsem project; Mirror had ... Read More

Mobster's Rating: Jon Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens is a decidedly old-fashioned movie. Although the title drums up comic-book imagery and the special effects are the state of the current art, everything else about the film suggests it could have been made some 40 years ago, perhaps starring Steve McQueen in ...

Mobster's Rating: With the fantastic ‘Hugo’, based off Brian Selznick’s Caldecott winning children’s novel, Martin Scorsese returns to a measure of his former glory. It’s always interesting to watch a filmmaker testing new waters, and in Hugo, a PG-rated big-budget family picture, the great director attempts a genre and format he’s ... Read More

Breaking Dawn begins the much anticipated/dreaded final chapter of the Twilight Saga. Ed and Bella get married, knock boots, and start the natural first step for any teen/ancient creepy thing relationship: have a baby! There's more sulking, more wolves and 100% more umbilical chewing than the previous installments.

Mobster's Rating: Welcome to Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia, where the end of the world never looked so pretentious. Von Trier, that Dane of the Dismal, delivers another art house exercise in glossy banality that's much less profound then it thinks it is. His last, Anti-Christ, had Charlotte Gainsbourg committing genital mutilation ... Read More

Mobster's Rating: “What is this, anyway, some kind of comic book? We got robots, we got cavemen, we got kung fu.” Some kind of comic book indeed. The Eliminators is a great example of why the 1980s was such a fun decade for movies. You could head into your local multiplex and ... Read More

Mobsters Rating: Would you like to hear a ghost story? Look around; the days are soon to shorten, the leaves to color and then fall, and the chill of winter is already intruding. There is really no better time for one. And this one, I promise, you will like. It’s a ... Read More
Mobster's Rating: After seeing those flashy trailers for Paul W.S.Anderson’s The Three Musketeers—complete with steam-punk airships and Milla Jovovich’s bouyant corset-fu—I found myself wondering ‘Did they adapt the novel or the candy bar?’ Now, having the seen the full brunt of Anderson’s opus, that potentially marvelous headline is spoiled. A candy ... Read More

Mobster's Rating: Television movies were a far different beast in the 1970s than they are now. In fact, you don’t see the major networks wasting their time with them much anymore. But some 30 years ago, that was quite different. There were larger spaces to fill, not as many shows ... Read More
