    Review: 'How To Train Your Dragon 2' Is A Satisfying, If Slightly Inferior Sequel

    For most of their history, which has now lasted over 15 years ("Antz" and "The Prince Of Egypt" both debuted in 1998), DreamWorks Animation seemed to be content with making a quick buck and raising a cheap laugh. Some of their output was better than others (the original "Shrek" at one end of the sca...

    Cannes Review: 'How To Train Your Dragon 2' With Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler & More

    Review: 'Don Peyote' Starring & Co-Directed By Dan Fogler Is A Bust

    I’ll say this for Dan Fogler’s “Don Peyote”: its title might be the finest play on “Quixote” in cinema history. (Sorry, 2007’s “Donkey Xote.”) Unfortunately, a pun-tastic title does not guarantee a winning film, as the makers of “R.I.P.D.” can attest. As star, co-writer, and co-director of “Don Peyo...

    Watch: Fly High With 2 Clips And Featurette From 'How To Train Your Dragon 2'

    Sequels are hard enough, but animated sequels are arguably tougher. Why? Animation in general takes longer than live action film to make, which means that a lot of decisions about story, tone, character and more have to be made early. Do you change things up the second go-around or do you play to th...

    Review: 'The Art Of The Steal' With Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon, Terence Stamp And Jay Baruchel

    "The Art of the Steal” isn’t just the name of Jonathan Sobol’s sophomore effort; it’s virtually a genre unto itself, thanks to countless movies about low-level con artists, their team of accomplices and the victims/ adversaries they’re trying to outwit. But even if the film doesn’t raze genre conven...

    Jay Baruchel Is A ‘Man Seeking Woman,’ Linda Cardellini Joins Netflix Thriller, Nick Cannon Back For 'Drumline 2' & More

    Visibly more than his fellow Canadian collaborators, Jay Baruchel has retained his hometown adoration by selecting gigs set or filmed north of the border—“Cosmopolis”, “Goon”, and “Good Neighbors” to name a few—and now he’s set for a dual repeat with two projects in the works.

    Review: 'RoboCop' Starring Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Abbie Cornish, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton & More

    Every movie should be approached with an open mind. Ideally, be it a film from Martin Scorsese or Friedberg and Seltzer, a reviewer should be going in without expectations, ready to play it as it lays. But it'd be dishonest to pretend that that was the case going in to "RoboCop," because it's a long...

    Watch: Cameo-Filled Trailer For Comedy 'Don Peyote' Featuring Anne Hathaway, Abel Ferrara & More

    Well, we'll give co-writer/director Dan Fogler credit for this: he certainly knows how to work a Rolodex. Ordinarily, we probably wouldn't pay a movie titled "Don Peyote" much mind, but when it manages to rope in a rather oddball assortment of people for cameo roles, well, we gave more time out of d...

    Watch: New Trailer For 'How To Train Your Dragon 2' Takes To The Skies

    In the age of quick turnaround sequels, the four year wait for "How To Train Your Dragon 2" seems like an eon. But now a bonafide franchise—not only with a big screen followup, but a small screen offshoot too on Cartoon Network—DreamWorks is ready to cash in the success of the first movie. But can m...

    Watch: Kurt Russell & Jay Baruchel Are Master & Apprentice In Trailer For 'The Art Of The Steal'

    TIFF comes and TIFF goes and there are lots of movies that due to scheduling, the need for sleep and the necessity of food, just don't get in front of our eyes. And this year, one of them was "The Art Of The Steal" which brings together the ragtag crew of Kurt Russell, Jay Baruchel, Matt Dillon and ...
