David Denby of The New Yorker weighs in on "Shooter" the Mark Wahlberg action flick directed by Antoine Fuqua ("Training Day").  I caught a 10:30 am showing of this film on Saturday down at Riverdale.  The film's a blend of shoot 'em up, blow 'em up fun, but the plot twist is thin and the ending silly.  It doesn't seem too many people tried that hard on this film.  It's as if they made it just because.  The film is based on the novel "Point of Impact" written by Washington Post film critic and Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Hunter.  Hunter will have a live chat today at 1:00 EST

  • That Time of Year

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
