    Being Zoe Barnes: Reconsidering the Most Difficult Character in 'House of Cards'

    The characters in Netflix's original series "House of Cards" are fascinatingly manipulative, calculating, ferociously ambitious or destructively idealistic. What they're not is easily likable, especially in the case of Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara), the cub reporter who hitches her star to Representative F...

    Ryan Murphy & His Leading Ladies Recreate Scenes From 'Repulsion,' 'Carrie,' 'The Birds' & Other Horror Classics

    Magazines doing photo spreads recreating scenes from iconic movies is nothing new. Vanity Fair seems to do it a couple times a year, and it was at the tail end of 2011 when the New York Times Magazine got in on the act enlisting a wealth of stars for a big awards season shoot that included, among ot...

    Jamie Bell & Kate Mara Team Up For Rom-Com 'Fighting Jacob'

    Earlier today, The Playlist team ran down their favorite rom-coms and if there was any unifying thread to the variety of movies we had listed, it was that chemistry and appeal between the two leads is essential. If you don't have stars that can be charming, attractive, funny and sympathetic...

    Tribeca Review: 'Deadfall' Starring Eric Bana & Olivia Wilde Is Trapped In A Blizzard of Coincidence & Two-Dimensional Characters

    "Deadfall" starts off strong enough – three criminals, led by Addison (Eric Bana) and his sexy sister Liza (Olivia Wilde) speed away from some unspecified job (it's later revealed to be a casino heist). It's icy out and their driver (the only black character in the whole movie) overcompensates, avoi...

    TIFF '11 Review: 'Ten Year' Brings Together A Strong Cast For A Mixed Bag Of Comedy & Drama

    Births, funerals, marriage, anniversaries and even annual vacations have all served as plot devices in the reunion film, a genre that usually finds middle-aged or older characters dealing with a crisis that is exacerbated by seeing old family and friends. And while "Ten Year" certainly isn't breaking new territory, producer and star Channing Tatum, along with writer/director Jamie Linden ("Dear John"), do take an interesting approach. Wisely not going far beyond their own age bracket, this film brings together a pretty solid ensemble cast of some of the best up-and-coming actors working right now for a tale that catches up with a gaggle of fr...

    Review: 'Ironclad' Is Made Of Flimsy Fabric

    There have been a wealth of medieval swordplay pictures in the last couple of years. Some have adhered to a jumpcut-heavy editing method to allow these pictures a contemporary feel.
