Who knew a Philip K. Dick story could be so darned romantic?
"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.
With the work week shortened by one day for two consecutive weeks, many residents may find time to hit the local cinema to see movies gearing up for Oscar nods or blockbuster status.
To what do we owe the second coming of the biblical epic?
Writer-director Chris Rock is not Andre Allen, the stand-up comedian turned movie star lead of "Top Five." But, it's almost impossible to watch his latest effort, a cutting comedy about showbiz, creativity and ambition, and not wonder what material Rock took from his own life. While that's a fun and compelling draw, thankfully, it's only part of the triumph of the film.
LOS ANGELES - All is not well in Panem. At the conclusion of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," Katniss' (Jennifer Lawrence) force-field shattering arrow left the society in turmoil. The desperate act was perceived as subversion, inciting populist uprisings and devastating counter attacks by the governing elite.
