I'm sure half the people in attendance at the advanced screening of "21 Jump Street" either weren't alive for or barely old enough to remember the show generally regarded as Johnny Depp's breakout role.
Regular viewers of the now defunct "That 70s Show" can tell you that Topher Grace was always too good for the show. I got the same feeling watching his new 80s comedy, "Take Me Home Tonight."
If there is one tool that a filmmaker can use to get me hooked, it is nostalgia. "The Artist," of course, plays right into that.
When you think of Steven Soderbergh, you don't usually think of break-neck action and intense fight scenes. But that's what you get with his new film, "Haywire."
Admirers of the original 1981 flick written and directed by Steve Gordon might want to steer clear of the recent remake of "Arthur." No longer filled with subtle humor, this rom-com remake is evidence of a clear generation gap.
