Special to The Herald-MailI want to start by saying that I wasn't a fan of 2009's "Taken." I found it routine and unengaging. Therefore, it is important to keep in mind that I am not the audience for this past weekend's "Taken 2." Having said that, even if you were a fan of the...
Special to The Herald-MailMy mom used to make a home version of the game "Battleship" for me and my brother. She would draw the 10-by10 grids on paper, and we'd put down Xs for misses and Os for hits. She knew that she didn't need to spend 10 bucks on a plastic "Battleship" game....
Special to The Herald-Mail"Snow White and the Huntsman" would actually serve itself well by distancing itself from the familiar story of Snow White. It's so cheesy these days to do a "dark" version of a beloved children's tale. It would be more interesting to just market an...
Special to The Herald-MailSuperhero fans have been waiting for "The Avengers" since "Iron Man" in 2008. Since then, all the films featuring Avengers have included hints and references to the characters' upcoming collaboration. Some say what we've gotten is four years of...

By Bob Garver Special to The Herald-Mail Did you know the title character of the television show "House" is based on Sherlock Holmes? Played by Hugh Laurie, Dr. Gregory House is a brilliant solver of mysteries who has an antisocial personality, a drug...
Special to The Herald-MailLast week I wondered if we really needed "Sherlock Holmes" at the movies when we already have "House" on TV. This week, I question the necessity of a fourth "Mission Impossible" movie when we already have 22 James Bond movies with a 23rd on its way next...
Special to The Herald-Mail"Drive" is a hard movie to figure out. That isn't to say that the plot is overly complicated (it's actually pretty straightforward), but the film goes in some directions creatively that come seemingly from out of nowhere. These directions aren't always...
Special to The Herald-MailEarly estimates indicate a virtual tie for the No. 1 position at the weekend box office. With two new releases enjoying equal success, I feel it's appropriate to take a look at both of them. "Cowboys and Aliens" is the third big alien invasion movie...
