    While it seems like we've been getting various peeks at "The Girl" for a while now, it appears that the movie about the movies is even closer than we thought, and of course to fan those flames, two more stills have dropped in advance of the enticing picture.

    Snow White and the Huntsman—movie review

    Sometimes, while I’m watching a bad movie, one burning question arises: “What were they thinking?” That’s what I asked myself while suffering through 'Snow White and the Huntsman', a putrid, and seemingly endless, retelling of the famous fairy tale. Grim and gruesome, it’s a soul-sucking two-hour-pl...

    Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy—movie review

    When a film has so many attributes—including superior performances and a tangible sense of time, place, and atmosphere—it’s tempting to overlook its shortcomings. That wouldn’t be honest, but at least I can begin on a positive note. From the casting of Gary Oldman as veteran MI6 agent George Smiley ...

    Toby Jones & Sienna Miller To Star In BBC TV Drama About Relationship Between Alfred Hitchcock & Tippi Hedren

    Considering he's the most instantly recognizable and iconic filmmaker of all time (bar perhaps Charlie Chaplin), a man whose silhouette alone became a brand name, it's surprising that no one has ever made a film about Alfred Hitchcock, especially considering the particular obsessions in his ...

    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...

    Venice '11 Review: 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' Is A Remarkable, Quietly Devastating Spy Movie

    The spy genre, is generally speaking, a euphemism for 'action movie' -- look at the explosions, fistfights and car chases of the Bond films, of the 'Mission: Impossible' series, of the 'Bourne' franchise, none of which have much in the way of actual tradecraft. The business of being a spy is hard, boring work, made up of listening and talking and without a lot of glamor. One of the men who best understands this is novelist John Le Carré, himself a former spy, who for close to half a century has been behind some of the most acclaimed literary examples of the genre. But aside from the much-loved "The Spy Who Came In From the Cold," and the more...

    Watch: Get All Kinds Of Goosebumps With Outstanding Teaser Trailer For 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy'

    Wow. Maybe it's just the way our brains are wired, but we just saw more fireworks from 70-odd seconds of middle-aged British character actors than we got across two-and-a-half-hours of empty spectacle in "Transformers: Dark of the Moon." The Guardian just debuted the first international teaser trail...

    Hi-Ho! Eddie Izzard, Toby Jones, Bob Hoskins & More Play Dwarves In 'Snow White and The Huntsman'

    Eddie Marsan & Stephen Graham Also On BoardIn the battle to make anyone care about either of the duelling "Snow White" projects in the works, Universal just landed the first punch. Relativity Media's "The Brothers Grimm: Snow White" (a title that seems to be in some degree of flux) might have "The F...
