You've all heard the phrase, "It's lonely at the top." Well, Pixar no longer needs to worry about that.
"Splice" is what you get if you make Frankenstein female and oddly beautiful, give her hip quirky parents and have Sigmund Freud write the screenplay.
"Get Him to the Greek" is shamelessly funny. No seriously - it literally has no shame.
May isn't even over, and we already have our first summer flop in the making.
We are fortunate to live in a time when actresses older than 40 are no longer considered "over the hill." Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, Meryl Streep and many others have proven once and for all that women don't suddenly lose their beauty or their ability to act and draw audiences when they reach a certain age. And there was much rejoicing.
"Shrek Forever After" is the least necessary sequel of 2010. And yes, that includes "Piranha 3D" (releasing in August).
Can Robin Hood's wooden arrows pierce Iron Man's armor? Doubtful.
No other movie in 2010 will hit theaters with more hype than "Iron Man 2." You're all waiting for it and you're all going to see it regardless of what I write next, so the real question is, does it live up?
You know those horror stories you hear about people who went in for minor surgery but wake up to find the doctors mistakenly performed some radical procedure? Like a guy who goes in for a vasectomy but has his leg amputated?

For the next eight days, the Atlanta Film Festival offers movie lovers a veritable paradise - more than 100 films that celebrate local talent, discover voices from around the world and frequently defy categorization.
For decades, Hollywood stuck to a predictable calendar. Studios released family fare and their better-genre pictures during fall, offered their award winners for our consideration in the winter, dumped their losers and specialty pics each spring, and unleashed their tent-pole blockbusters every summer.
Somewhere, stop-motion animation legend Ray Harryhausen is shrugging his shoulders and saying, "Is that the best you whippersnappers with your fancy computers can do?"
Don't you hate it when dragons storm your village and steal your sheep? That happens a lot in Burke, a viking village located on a steep cliff overlooking the ocean. It would be a nice place to live if not for the frequent, terrifying dragon raids. Life for these vikings revolves completely around the ongoing war with the dragons. The men do little besides defend the village and try to find the dragon nesting ground. ...
"Repo Men" is an "interesting" movie in the same way the "Bodies" exhibition (the one with human cadavers variously posed) is "interesting" art. Is this good art? Bad art? Is it art at all? Answers to these questions vary widely, but no one can deny that it's "interesting."
One thing I can virtually guarantee is "Man of Steel" will not receive a fair chance to succeed, either critically or commercially. And so much is riding on this movie.
"The Purge" suffers from an identity crisis.
