    Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows—movie review

    As one who couldn’t stand the first Guy Ritchie-Robert Downey, Jr. 'Sherlock Holmes' movie, I didn’t mind this one so much. For one thing, I knew what I was in for: more rapid-fire Downey wisecracks and meaningless disguises, more attention-getting, gimmicky action scenes. But at least it doesn’t lo...

    Rachel McAdams Joins New Brian De Palma Movie, March Start Date Set

    For Brian De Palma fanatics, it's been an agonizingly long wait for another sexy, stylish spellbinder. His last feature was 2007 incendiary "Redacted," which was a noble failure, but a failure just the same. Honestly, we can only watch our Criterion "Blow Out" Blu-rays s...

    Robert Downey and Jude Law in Joyful, Sparkling Sherlock Holmes

    Poor Watson, a smart guy fated to look dim next to his brilliant best friend, Sherlock, and often underused on screen the way Robert Sean Leonard is as Wilson on House (as the series’ creator has often said, Wilson is Watson to House’s Holmes).  The bright twist in Sherlock Hol...

    Few movies have sparked as much speculation, excitement, and unease (just think of the potential disappointment!) as Ridley Scott's upcoming "Prometheus," which promises to return the famed director to the "Alien" universe that shot him into the directorial stratosphere. What...

    Sixty-three Films Eligible for Foreign Language Oscar, Leading Contenders

    Of the final sixty-three countries that have submitted their official Oscar entries in the Foreign Language Film category, many have been seen on the festival circuit. Screenings will soon be scheduled for various foreign language committees, which will eventually narrow the list to the final five to be announced on January 24. The first committees see groups of films and must see a certain percentage to vote; branch chief Mark Johnson chooses an uber-committee to add three films to an initial list of six and then vote on the final five nominations. Thus high-brow movies that may not play to the bigger group can be added. The prime contenders...

While Fox and Scott are downplaying the sci-fi space thriller's relationship to the original Alien and the kick-ass James Cameron sequel Aliens, there's no question this movie is grown from the same DNA; Scott admits it. Th...
