    12 Movie Stars Who Experienced Career Resurrections

    This week “The Dallas Buyers Club” opens (you can read our review here), and it features a riveting, committed, physically gruelling and very likely-to-be-Oscar-nominated performance by Matthew McConaughey.

    Review: 'Killing Season' Starring Robert De Niro & John Travolta

    The deadening inevitability of “Killing Season” is that, for all its bluster and violence, the picture’s going to end on a ponderous note it can’t quite deliver convincingly.

    Watch: John Travolta Hunts Robert De Niro In Trailer For 'Killing Season'

    For a movie that has been in the works for a while, at one time set to re-team "Face/Off" duo Nicolas Cage and John Travolta with John McTiernan directing, the final result here is pretty dismal. Cage was swapped with Robert De Niro (which these days hardly means anything since they both choose awfu...
