Ron Howard

The Paper Review

The Paper Review

RATING: (2 STARS) It’s almost stunning how quickly Ron Howard’s The Paper collapses in on itself. Here’s a film that’s mostly fine, if a little familiar, for 80% of its running time. But my God, when it fails, it fails spectacularly. Almost any good will Howard and his all-star cast build is gone by the […]

Ron Howard Movies

Ron Howard Movies

Ron Howard movies are often the source of jokes and derision aimed at their soft, gooey centers, but like cookies, I’ll take my Ron Howard movies as soft and gooey as possible without all the softness and gooeyness causing them to fall apart and make a mess. Ron Howard, of course, was a famous child […]

Left for dead by a network that had no idea what to do with something so out-there and ahead of its time, Netflix […]

Frost/Nixon Review

Frost/Nixon Review

RATING: (3.5 STARS) In my review of All the President’s Men, I said I think I’m inclined to love pretty much any film about Nixon and the Watergate scandal. It’s a larger-than-life moment in American history that’s ripe for dramatization. Such is what happened with Ron Howard’s “Frost/Nixon,” an adaptation of the Tony Award-winning play […]

Angels and Demons Review

Angels and Demons Review

RATING: (1 STAR) I think I might be one of roughly fifty people in the world who hasn’t read any of Dan Brown’s mega-best-selling Robert Langdon books. I tried to read “The DaVinci Code,” but I couldn’t get into it. That being said, I actually kind of enjoyed “The DaVinci Code,” the generally reviled big […]
