    The Iron Lady—movie review

    It goes without saying that Meryl Streep is always worth watching; in the case of 'The Iron Lady', her uncanny performance as Margaret Thatcher is the best, and possibly only, reason to see this pallid biography. Screenwriter Abi Morgan does provide a primer on Thatcher’s remarkable rise from grocer...

    Review: 'Arthur Christmas' Is A Visually Dazzling, Emotionally Rich Holiday Treat

    Making a truly classic Christmas movie is a feat that few achieve but many try their hand at. In recent years, studios have cynically tried to graft "edgy" material onto all-audiences Christmas approaches, often times involving Vince Vaughn for reasons that remain obscure, and the results ...

    Stephen Mangan and Jim Broadbent Also InvolvedYou might not be familiar with "Postman Pat." The kind of peculiarly eccentric, low-key animation series that could only have come out of Great Britain, it involves the adventures of the titular postal worker, and his black-and-white cat Jess, in the fic...

    Susan Sarandon & Jim Broadbent Also In Talks For 'Cloud Atlas'

    While they transformed the landscape with the game-changing "Matrix" film, the Wachowski siblings Andy and Lana (formerly Larry) have truly failed, at least outside their hardcore constituents, to live up to their initial promise. Their follow-up films, "Speed Racer," the last two "Matrix" movies and most of the films they've produced ("Ninja Assassin," "The Invasion") during the aughts were major disappointments. Likewise, German filmmaker Tom Tykwer took the international film world by storm in 1998 with "Run Lola Run," but has failed to connect with audiences or critics with his subsequent films ("Heaven," "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer...
