'Conjuring' more than just fear

Rated “R” with no nudity, sex or profanity, “The Conjuring” is labeled with this warning as it may just be too terrifying for younger audiences. Set in a backwoods fixer-upper that is scary enough from a homeowner's point of view, this film is a frightfest of nail-biting terror waiting around every corner — on top of the wardrobe, behind the door, and yes, in the boarded-up basement.

The Chinese pursuit of the American Dream

Hong Kong director Peter Ho-Sun Chan's (陳可辛) most Chinese-style film, “American Dreams in China” (海闊天空), centers on the lives of three people; Cheng Dongqing, Meng Xiaojun and Wang Yang, who come from different backgrounds but have one thing in common — the dream of getting a visa to the U.S. and living out their American dreams.

Not so 'Blind Detective'

Mingling elements of crime, drama, comedy, romance and gastronomy, Hong Kong director Johnnie To's (杜琪峯) new film, “Blind Detective” (盲探), gives away a strong HK flavor with a high dose of slapstick humor. Starring veteran actors and actresses, including Andy Lau (劉德華) and Sammi Cheng (鄭秀文), the mixed-genre movie premiered at the Cannes Film Festival's midnight sidebar last May.

ALone Ranger in the box office

Walt Disney's latest adventure movie “The Lone Ranger” is a remake of a classic American Wild West legend. The 2 1/2-hour-long movie was just that — too long. Filmed in Utah and Colorado, the film presents great visuals and an authentic atmosphere of a classic Western. The beautiful sceneries were matched by appropriate costume designs, making a winning best-selling look for the movie.

Where romance meets reality

Those who watched Richard Linklater's “Before Sunrise” (1995) and “Before Sunset” (2004) would not want to miss “Before Midnight” to complete the trilogy of romance. However, the charm of romance has transformed to overwhelming reality in the third installment.

Monstrous 'Pacific Rim'

Director Guillermo del Toro's “Pacific Rim” is an all-out assault on the senses, a loud (and I mean loud), brawling, bashing action film where robots and monsters smash each other to bits while the fate of humanity hangs in the balance. And from the moment it begins, it is clear who the stars are. Move aside pathetic humans, the monsters and robots are the A-listers here.

Undeniably entertaining 'Heat'

“Beverly Hills Cop.” “Lethal Weapon.” “48 Hours.” “Tango & Cash.” The buddy cop movie is a reliable mainstay of our popular culture. And the cops are pretty much always guys.

Not despicable at all

Too often, sequels to popular movies are built up with fanfare only to disappoint. Just a few months back, I left the theater shaking my head after watching “Taken 2” and “Hangover 3,” so “Despicable Me 2” did not seem too promising. OK, so maybe I was still kind of excited to watch it (after all, I'm a sucker for Pixar films). But did I really think that Gru and his three girls could bring the same sparkly appeal that they had upon their first appearance in 2010? Not really. Turns out, I was both right and wrong.
