In Theaters


Top Five

This is the movie we’ve been waiting for Chris Rock to make...


As unnervingly timely as this historical drama is, this is

also a film with clear-eyed heart, one that sweeps you

up and carries you with undeniable power and grace...

Inherent Vice

Paul Thomas Anderson’s Thomas Pynchon’s

adaptation is a spot on stoner story that’s

just a little too in love with itself...


Reese Witherspoon’s adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s autobiography

has all the right stuff. So how come I wasn’t a puddle when it was over?

The Imitation Game

This true story is, in itself, so tragically fascinating and the performances

so fine, you almost don’t realize how safe this film actually is...


Rarely has a film so chilly felt so richly drawn. Bennett Miller’s decidedly

remote true-life story is a brilliantly acted, fiercely American tragedy...


Jon Stewart’s auspicious debut behind the camera not only makes us

think and feel, but yeah, laugh a little, too. The guy can’t help it...

The Theory of Everything

It would be easy to fall into the trap of wishing this look at one

of the greatest minds on the planet was something more, dare I

say, intellectual. But this movie is a love story. And a fine love story it is...


Some of the parts of this mega-fantasy are

awesome. The sum of all parts? Not so stellar...


Dan Gilroy’s sleek and slick indictment of TV news

crawls under the skin thanks, in great part, to a knockout

performance from a sensational Jake Gyllenhaal...

Gone Girl

I don’t know about Nick and Amy, but the creative marriage of David Fincher

and Gillian Flynn is dandy, delivering a juicy movie that’s damned entertaining...


Yes, there have been many movies about abusive mentor relationships.

Here, though, we’ve got two artists at the top of their game

plumbing the depths of defining artistic sacrifice. Pithy stuff...

What could be Liam Neeson’s newest franchise gets off to a

decent start with this Lawrence Block mystery adaptation...


This lush yet gritty adaptation, like the real journey itself, refuses to

take the easy route. There are real rewards for all of us in that...


Kevin Smith’s comic horror homage is not

completely nuts. Even counting the walrus.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Amidst the gazillion 3-D bullets flying, this long awaited

sequel commits the biggest crime of all: it gets boring...

Love is Strange

One of the most beautifully acted movies in recent

times, this affecting love story earns our tears...

Trip to Italy

While this second course may not be as startlingly scrumptious as its

predecessor, this dandy reunion still serves up a mighty delicious treat...


The fact that Lucy, the enabled heroine in Luc Besson’s ambitiously

nuts sci-fi-er, can get people to do exactly what she wants them to do

by merely glancing at them made me, frankly, a little jealous...

Magic in the Moonlight

Had this pretty trifle been made by a different filmmaker, perhaps I

could have just sat back and enjoyed the scenery. But it wasn’t....

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

The strength of this mythical morality tale and the

CGI surrounding it almost make up for the short shrift

given to the humans in this chapter. Note I said ‘almost’...


If I have any quibble at all with Richard Linklatter’s glorious film,

it’s the title. Because while the ambitious concept is to follow one

boyhood, the movie is just as much about a family and about America...

Earth to Echo

This derivative mash up has one shining light. And it isn’t the

glowy-eyed bot that’s supposed to charm the kiddies...

Jersey Boys

Clint Eastwood’s big screen adaptation of the Broadway smash is not without

its rewards; getting there, though, requires acceptance and patience...

Edge Of Tomorrow

Yes, Tom Cruise’s time trippy sci-fi-er is the best surprise of the summer...

The Fault in Our Stars

Do you have to love John Green’s best selling novel to love this movie?

Maybe. For the rest of us, the no-fault stars carry us a long way.

Obvious Child

Anyone curious about the state of women in film or just women

in general must see Gillian Robespierre’s Obvious Child...

Heard On Radio Stations Around The World!


   Her voice is heard throughout the 50 states and around the world by more than one million listeners on her syndicated radio programs:

   Joanna Langfield's People Report and Video and Movieinute.

   She  is also seen and heard domestically and internationally as a regular contributing commentator on CNN International, CNN, Fox News and     CNBC. As a columnist and reporter, her articles have been published in such high profile magazines as Video Review and McCall's.

   Joanna Langfield is known for taking the celebrity interview to another level with probing looks at celebrities' insights rather than just their latest

projects. As a result, she has secured a niche among the nation's premier interviewers and movie critics reporting on radio and television.

  Joanna began her career on the production staff of a local Boston television station. She then focused her energies towards radio and

began producing talk shows at WMEX-AM in Boston.

  After moving to New York, she found herself at WMCA-AM, where she served as executive producer to the legendary talk show personalities Barry Gray and Sally Jessy Raphael. She began hosting a one-minute movie review spot which, in turn, led the way to her own top-rated weekend call in-show, The Joanna Langfield Show from 1980-1983.

  When Joanna moved to WABC-AM and hosted The Joanna Langfield Show every Saturday night from 9:00pm to midnight, it quickly became the highest rated show in its time slot.

  From 1987-1989,  Joanna hosted Today's People on the ABC Radio network, which was fed daily to over 300 stations around the country. She also worked closely with WABC-TV as a regular on-air contributor.

   In 1989, Joanna decided to produce and syndicate her own radio reports. She formed her own radio production company, Joanna Langfield Entertainment Reports.

  Joanna is heard and seen domestically and internationally as one of the top authoritative commentators on the entertainment industry.
