    Recap: 'Boardwalk Empire' Season 4, Episode 9 ‘Marriage and Hunting’

    In the blink of an eye, fortunes change. One week you’re up, the next week you’re down. It’s strange to see a seemingly unassailable man like Arnold Rothstein (Michael Stuhlbarg) down on his luck, but that’s exactly where we find the Manhattan gangster in this episode. It’s perhaps a shock just to h...

    Michael Shannon Moves Into '99 Homes'; Nicole Kidman & Colin Firth Hug 'Paddington' & More

    While Ramin Bahrani's leap to the slightly-bigger-time earlier this year with "At Any Price" didn't quite work, we still admired the hell out of the movie.

    Interview: 'Afternoon Delight' Star Kathryn Hahn Talks Motherhood, Unhinged Silver Lake Book Clubs & Peter Bogdanovich's 'Squirrel To The Nuts'

    Even though her scenes in “Step Brothers,” “Anchorman,” and most recently “We're The Millers” rank among those films' finest and funniest moments, actress Kathryn Hahn had, until recently, never landed a proper starring vehicle to showcase her considerable chops.

    Breaking what? While the fate of Walter White is on everyone's mind as his journey kicks off in just over a week (take the phone off the hook folks!), a whole other breed of morally conflicted man is returning to the small screen too.

    The Best & Worst Of 'Man of Steel'

    If you listen to the internet -- and that’s always a precarious thing to do -- Warner Bros. “Man Of Steel” is either the worst movie of all time or the best movie of all time and of course, nothing in between (and lord there’s been some kicking and screaming by people who disagree with one another)....
