    Christian Bale in the Brutal, Steel-Town Drama 'Out Of The Furnace'

    In Steve McQueen's artful 12 Years a Slave and Peter Berg's fraught Lone Survivor (opening soon), the violence is difficult to sit through, but worth it for those films' serious drama and wrenching realism. Scott Cooper's Out of the Furnace doesn't come close to justifying its extreme brutality. Thi...

    Ben Affleck & Matt Damon Tried To Convince Joaquin Phoenix & Casey Affleck To Reveal The Joke Of ‘I’m Still Here’
