Three of the best actors in the business put on a master class in mystery thriller in "Before I Go to Sleep," a lean, twisty-turning tale in the "Memento" style.
One year ago, I wrote my first old film movie review on "The Night of the Living Dead." The movie is an all-time classic that ponders human frailty, fear and uncertainty with a hefty dose of horror and violence.
Last week, I profiled some of the higher-profile movies set to hit theaters in the next few months, but that's only part of the story.
The 2014 domestic box office is down 6 percent from where it was this time last year, by about half a billion dollars. Sure, the foreign box office is picking up some of the slack, but it still raises the stakes very high for Hollywood this fall season.
The talk these days among anyone who has an interest in the movie industry is how badly the North American box office has fallen off.
"The Last of Robin Hood" is the latest in what has become a series of films taking a revisionist look at Hollywood history. It has a certain amount in common with "My Week With Marilyn," for instance, since they both attempt to offer insight into the real person behind a cinematic legend.
America lost two entertainment legends this week: Robin Williams and Lauren Bacall.
Any discussion of Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" necessarily begins with how the film was made, because that alone is practically a miracle.
"Guardians of the Galaxy" is the most purely entertaining movie of the summer. It isn't even a contest.
You're going to hear strange popping sounds Friday afternoon around the time "Lucy" has its first showing. They will be the sounds of scientists' heads exploding all around the world.
"The Purge: Anarchy" is a political polemic disguised as a horror film. I view that as a good thing, but horror fans may not.
"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" swings into theaters this week, continuing one of the most surprisingly enduring franchises in movie history.
What if I told you a movie was about four bikers who destroy a pawnshop, cause significant damage to a bar and are chased out of it by angry drinkers? Then I told you the same four bikers break into a private residence and a barn, steal two cars, crash a high school party where everyone is drinking and having sex and commit other serious crimes.
Netflix's most successful original series returned a few weeks ago for Season 2 with its dazzling array of rich characters and sardonic, femme-skewing wit.
The documentary "Ivory Tower" examines the state of higher education in the United States. And while its entry into limited release this weekend has thus far been quiet, it could end up making a lot of noise.
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.
