The third and allegedly final instalment of NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM series is mostly a dull entry that should have stayed closed until further notice.

This big budget sword-and-sandal fantasy epic is both campy and cheesy, but still packed a decent entertainment value.

Other than the nostalgia factor and a playful cast, DUMB AND DUMBER TO is largely unfunny and creatively bankrupt sequel that should have gone back to the drawing board.

RISE OF THE LEGEND is only partially entertaining, but pretty much a failed attempt to resurrect the cinematic reincarnation of the Wong Fei-Hung for a new generation.

While there are few worthy laughs, HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 is mostly an inane sequel that tries too hard to be funny.

PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR may have been formulaic, but the animated feature is fast-paced, funny and zippy enough to make this a must-see family entertainment where both adults and kids can enjoy.

Legendary German-born American director Mike Nichols, who passed away on Wednesday at the age of 83, was certainly one of the most influential filmmakers in Hollywood. Throughout his long and illustrious career since his acclaimed debut in 1966's WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?, he was one of the few peoples to win Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards. Best known for character-driven comedies and dramas, he has directed some of the most highly-regarded motion pictures for each decade and to honour his legacy, here is my personal list of five greatest Mike Nichols movies in a chronological order:

Although it doesn't have the inventiveness of the first movie, DON'T GO BREAKING MY HEART 2 is decent and entertaining enough for an otherwise needless sequel.

Born in London on 30 July 1970, Christopher Nolan is already a wunderkind in his early age when he made two short films -- TARANTELLA (1989) and LARCENY (1996) -- while he was still studying at University College London (UCL). His third short film, DOODLEBUG (1997) which starred Jeremy Theobald as a man attempting to squash a bug with a shoe in his dingy apartment, but doesn't realize he actually do worse than he thought, is a brilliant masterpiece that showcased his unique talent as a filmmaker (you can watch his short film right here). A year later, he made his feature debut with FOLLOWING and subsequently made a name for himself from becoming an indie sensation to one of the most influential and successful Hollywood filmmakers of today's generation. Even though some of his movies are met with criticism, it's hard to deny that his works are more consistent than most directors nowadays.
In conjunction with Nolan's upcoming sci-fi epic INTERSTELLAR (opens this Thursday on November 6), here is the retrospective of the remarkable director's works throughout his 14-year period directing eight feature movies:

A flawed but entertaining mix of thrilling police procedural and old-fashioned martial arts genre disguised as a contemporary action drama, KUNG FU JUNGLE is one of Donnie Yen's most satisfying movies to date.
