My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2
This unasked-for sequel goes down like an overdose of baklava
starstar
Film Review  March 25, 2016, by Steve Davis
"...This pointless sequel to 2002’s blockbuster indie comedy dutifully recycles with desperate comic purpose the original’s Windex gags, etymological jokes, and obsession with everything Greek: You laughed at this once before, why not again? Fast forward almost a decade-and-a-half after My Big Fat Greek Wedding, and the boisterous Portokalos clan hasn’t changed one iota. Five minutes in their company and you’ll need a shot or two of ouzo to cope with the exhausting cultural stereotypes on constant display..."

Go Greek: AFS Essential Cinema
AFS Essential Cinema: From the Shadows: Greek Independent Cinema
Screens Story  October 9, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...Mention the phrase "Greek cinema" to most people, and you're likely to hear more about films that used the olive-drenched countryside and the Aegean Sea as a location backdrop than were actually shot by Greek filmmakers, à la Gabriele Salvatores' achingly sexy Mediterraneo or that other Anthony Quinn film, the much discussed and quickly dismissed Jacqueline Kennedy/Aristotle Onassis biopic The Greek Tycoon. (Counting Mihalis Kakogiannis' high-stepping Zorba the Greek is just too easy.)..."

Director Stoller and producer Judd Apatow of the 2008 Jason Segel-penned comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall have taken that film’s breakout character Aldous Snow, a debauched rock & roll travesty, and spun him into the star of his own movie, Get Him to the Greek..."

Clash of the Titans
A messy assemblage of mythic odds and ends, Clash of the Titans takes a nosedive off Mount Olympus.
starstar
Film Review  April 2, 2010, by Marc Savlov
"...If you're casting about, looking to remake one of Ray Harryhausen's beloved stop-motion masterpieces but unsure of where to begin, it makes a slanted sort of sense to kick things off with everyone's least favorite of the 24-frames-per-second craftsman's 15-plus forays into "the land beyond beyond." And that, of course, would be 1981's fondly recalled but final – and frankly stodgy – Clash of the Titans. Directed, ploddingly, by Desmond Davis and featuring a raft of international thespians essaying the roles of the major Greek deities – Laurence Olivier as Zeus, Maggie Smith as Thetis, Ursula Andress as Aphrodite – the film remains most (in)famous for the presence of L.A..."

My Life in Ruins
Nia Vardalos, who hit pay dirt with My Big Fat Greek Wedding, is on shakier ground with this clichéd story about an American tourist guide in Greece.

Film Review  June 5, 2009, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...If last summer’s Mamma Mia! left you with a hunger to see more Grecian scenery onscreen, then My Life in Ruins offers a snack to keep your juices flowing until you make it to the Parthenon some day in the future. The snack, however, won’t be especially nutritious nor will it look as spectacular as the sun-dappled water and cliffs did in Mamma Mia!’s Greek isle..."

Film Review  August 24, 2001, by Steve Davis
"...The delicate tremolo of Captain Corelli's Mandolin lulls you so completely that it when it comes time for the movie to wrench your heart, you can't possibly respond to it in that way. Set on the postcard-perfect Greek island of Cephalonia during its Italian occupation during World War II, the film succeeds more as an enticement for a vacation on the Ionian Sea than anything else -- those crystalline waters and majestic mountains are so alluring that they're downright distracting..."

Immortals
There's lots of numbingly choreographed chaos and lascivious bloodletting in this megabudget picture about the Greek gods by the visual stylist Tarsem Singh.

Film Review  November 18, 2011, by Kimberley Jones
"...Which, I suppose, made Singh a no-brainer – at least on paper – to take on an actual Greek myth, or at least a cobbled-together one, in Immortals. But in putting Singh's ancients-recalling aesthetic into something like its correct context, the thumpingness of his vision has turned rather tinny...."

To Ancient Troy (By Way of Denver)
Ancient Greece and modern Denver may seem an incongruous pairing, but in the new Greek epic Tantalus, produced by the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, they prove a striking fit, creating a work that's heroic.
Arts Story  November 24, 2000, by Robert Faires
"...When the project was foundering for lack of a producer, Seawell -- also a longtime governor of the RSC -- committed the millions necessary to produce Tantalus at his theatre, in association with the RSC. Thus, the father-son directorial team of Sir Peter Hall and Edward Hall, a cast of English and American actors, and designers from around the globe convened in the Mile High City for six months to develop a new work of ancient Greek drama...."

Film Review  June 13, 1997, by Russell Smith
"...Starring: Harvey Keitel, Maia Morgenstern and Giorgos Michalakopolous. Ulysses' Gaze is one of those films that appeals to what might be called art-movie machismo: Hey buddy, how long can you stare at images of silently drifting fog banks, pretending to be overwhelmed by the massive sense of weltschmerz they impart? I just clocked three solid hours with this baby! Okay -- so that's a cheap shot that misrepresents the value and meaning of Greek director Angelopoulos' ambitious 180-minute work..."

"...This, uh, wonderfully directed and near-perfectly cast iconic heroine female empowerment story is so similar in tone and feel to Marvel Studios’ Captain America that I was waiting for Stan Lee to show up, possibly as a eunuch. But, no, this is a big girl’s game all the way, replete with Greek mythos, star-spangled corsetry, and an exhilarating performance from Israeli actor Gal Gadot as Diana, Princess of Themyscira (aka Wonder Woman, although no one says it aloud), the bullet-deflecting, Lasso of Truth-whipping, not-entirely-American – yet utterly feminist – heroine created by writer William Moulton Marston and illustrator Harry G..."

Claw-in-Claw With The Lobster
Director Yorgos Lanthimos reveals the beast within
DAILY Screens  May 20, 2016, by Richard Whittaker
"...Find true love in 45 days, or you’ll be turned into a crustacean. It sounds like the setup for a Disney fairy tale, but in his English-language debut The Lobster, Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos re-envisions this fantastical conceit as a metaphor for the pains and perils of being in or out of a relationship...."

Austin Shakespeare's Medea
This production of the Greek tragedy asks the audience to consider the whole story before passing judgment
Arts Review  March 3, 2016, by Shanon Weaver
"...Theatre makers have spent ages justifying the means to Medea's ends, citing her agency and assertion of power in a male-dominated world or even the abstract of Medea as a tragic hero, victim to malevolent gods (her undying love for Jason the result of Eros' arrow). For me, infanticide strips a character of all humanity and sympathy, and I'd call out the Greek classic as the epitome of the "overreacting, oversensitive" female stereotype that plagues us still: the thoroughly rotten trope of women going bat-shit, stabby crazy because of a man, even if that man's vile actions are the impetus for her empowerment..."

Film Review  February 27, 2015, by Josh Kupecki
"...Once the master of squeamish body horror and existential dread, his output as of late has veered from historical drama (A Dangerous Method) to dense literary adaptation (Cosmopolis) – the director following his delightfully perverse muse wherever it takes him. This latest film is ostensibly a salvo aimed at Hollywood, but, ultimately, it rests quite comfortably in the realm of Greek tragedy, dealing in incest, ghosts, and devastating family secrets..."

"...Sure to lift the benighted spirits of Greeks currently flailing in an economic Hades of their own making but a drag for anyone else, this iffy sequel to last year's Clash of the Titans is considerably less captivating than the Eurozone crisis. It doesn't help matters that the 3-D, which by now is all but unavoidable, remains uninspired – although, to be fair, it's not as muddily dark as its predecessor, Clash of the Titans...."

Film Review  December 5, 2008, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...Well, not that he’s no good but rather that he has terrible luck, that life can and will drop on his head at any moment, and that he’s developed a thousand and one post-Stella Adler affectations as a way of protecting himself from the inevitable crash. The list of Billy’s problems reads like an ancient Greek litany: He’s a drunk, he’s on the run from a violent drug dealer (an oddly cast Matthews, leader of the good-natured fusion/jam-rock band that bears his name), he’s recently had to move back in with his mother in small-town Virginia, his junkie girlfriend (de Matteo) uses their son as a drug mule, and he’s stuck emotionally in a single dark moment from his childhood, forced to relive its trauma over and over again in moody flashbacks..."

Film Review  August 3, 2007, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...My Best Friend, the latest in French writer/director Leconte’s long and varied oeuvre, is just such a pair of cozy pajamas: What it lacks in style and controversy it compensates for in genial blandness, like a bologna sandwich or the most recent Coldplay albums. The film takes us inside the hermetic world of François Coste (Auteuil), an antiques dealer who, though deep into his sixth decade on the planet, is more comfortable in the company of fifth century Greek vases than that of his fellow Parisians..."

Date Movie

Film Review  February 24, 2006, by Marc Savlov
"...Gross so accurately put it: “That’s not funny – that’s sick.”) Fans of the creakily amusing but more often than not cringe-worthy Scary Movie franchise will find that, obviously, more than two writers are necessary to generate a modicum of yuks; any less, and all you end up with are yucks, and, it should go without saying, enough fart jokes to stifle even Eddie Murphy’s fetishistic output. Ostensibly a parody of touchy-feely-quasi-comedies like My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Meet the Parents, Date Movie plays even beyond the balconies to the streets outside, where it’s cold, wet, and desperately in need of a good diarrhea gag..."
