    Review: 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' With Chris Pine, Keira Knightley & Kevin Costner

    Today, most people associate the character of Jack Ryan—originally created by author Tom Clancy, in a number of blockbuster novels—as a kind of hard-hitting action hero. This is thanks in large part to the series of films that began with 1990's masterful thriller "The Hunt for Red October" and conti...

    'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' Is Enjoyable Action, But Fault Lies in the Script -- Not the Stars (REVIEW AND ROUNDUP)

    Reviews have arrived for Kenneth Branagh's Tom Clancy adaptation "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," starring Chris Pine as the eponymous CIA-analyst hero.

    Watch: New International Trailer For 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' Serves Up More Bourne-Esque Footage

    So... when did Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan become Jason Bourne? Maybe we missed the meeting or memo, but from what we remember of past movies featuring the character, he wasn't quite doing his job this way. We suppose that's what reboots are for. Bringing new characters into contemporary times, though in...

    A "Marilyn" Smarter Than It Seems

    My Week With Marilyn seems like a terrible idea: one more take on the poor-little Marilyn story, this time with fabulous lookalike Michelle Williams. But this sharp little film is much more than that. The story of one week in 1956, when Monroe and Laurence Olivier were making The Prince and The...

    My Week With Marilyn—movie review

    This film has a different flavor from the usual biopic—and it’s delicious, at least for any diehard movie buff. Imagine stepping into a time machine, traveling back to 1956, and getting to eavesdrop on Marilyn Monroe and Laurence Olivier during the famously troubled production of 'Th...
