Cliches hamper 'The November Man'

"The November Man" has Pierce Brosnan returning to his spy-thriller roots, though not exactly with the same kind of charisma he brought to James Bond. Instead, we're treated to a competently made yet cliché-ridden film that, frankly, no one will remember in November.

Retire 'Expendables' if recent episode is all they can do

"The Expendables 3," now in theaters, continues the franchise featuring well-known action-movie icons of the 1980s and 1990s in an attempt to recapture their glory days. I thought the first movie was average, the second movie was actually better-than-average, but the third movie falls by the wayside.

Campy spirit makes 'Hercules' good, dumb fun

"Hercules" is the second attempt this year to make an incarnation of the Greek warrior after "The Legend of Hercules." For me, "Hercules" is like a lot of other characters in literature and mythology, such as Dracula or Robin Hood, that have been subjected to various cinematic interpretations. Everyone from Disney to Arnold Schwarzenegger has taken a stab at it.
