"Rango" is one of the strangest animated features to hit American theatres in decades. That's mostly a good thing.
Is it enough for a movie to have a passable plot as long as the actors are really, really ridiculously good looking? "I Am Number Four" might be the prettiest movie of 2011, and lest you think that's a sexist soft lead, "prettiest" applies to both male and female stars alike.
"Unknown" is a movie about redemption, both behind the camera and on screen.
Oh, I can just hear it now. All the Shakespeare purists will soon be noisily picking apart "Gnomeo & Juliet," an unassuming animated family movie that riffs on "Romeo and Juliet." They'll pull out quotes arguing for the gravity with which we must treat The Bard and prove the essentially tragic nature of the original play.
Maybe James Cameron should consider making only silent movies.
Poor CBS Films. They just can't pick a winner.
Oh good, another wealthy costumed vigilante with daddy issues. Does anyone else feel like we're using the same fill-in-the-blank template for these movies?
File this under "Columns I never Expected to Write." North Georgia is playing against character type this week, socking all of us with a paralyzing blanket of snow and ice.
It's a bad sign when the best thing you can say about a movie is: it isn't too long.
It is a joy to watch an actor embody a role with complete confidence and understanding of the character. You might think I'm referring to the stars and seasoned character actors in "True Grit," which include Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and Barry Pepper.
Hollywood definitely saved its best for last in 2010. No single movie looks to dominate the box office the way "Avatar" did last year, nor does any movie look poised to sweep the awards season (although "The Social Network" seems to be leading the pack for the moment).
I've never seen anything like "Black Swan," and I almost never get to say that.
The Chronicles of Narnia series returns this week - but it almost didn't.
"Love and Other Drugs" is a testament to the talent and appeal of its stars, Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal.
Here's all you need to know about the new Dwayne Johnson star vehicle, "Faster."
The British drama "The Railway Man" is based on the memoir of the same title by Eric Lomax, and the best thing I can say for the movie is it makes me want to read the book.
It was inevitable that Blue Sky/20th Century Fox would make a sequel to "Rio," a modest hit in 2011 that earned almost $500 million worldwide. That's what studios do: milk each intellectual property for as much box-office revenue as possible.
Another Marvel movie, another set of mixed reactions.
