    Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close—movie review

    I doubt that anyone who lived through the events of September 11, 2001 could remain completely unmoved by the story of how one boy deals with the death of his father, who was trapped in one of the World Trade Center towers that morning. There are many painful, poignant, and highly-fraught moments in...

    Review: 'Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close' Is Often Moving But Insufficiently Effective

    Oskar Schell, the protagonist of "Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close," isn’t like other boys. Sure, he likes laughing and junk food and having a good time like the other kids. But this overly precocious ten year old is more of an Encyclopedia Brown in training. With the guidance of his father, he p...

    A Heap Of New Images From Stephen Daldry's Post 9/11 Drama 'Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close'

    The Academy loves Stephen Daldry. Every film he has directed thus far -- "Billy Elliot," "The Hours" and "The Reader" -- has been nominated for Best Director, with the last two also taking Best Picture nods, in addition to a host of other honors. And, even though D...

    Paul Greengrass & Tom Hanks' Pirate Movie 'Captain Phillips' Sails Into Theaters On March 22, 2013

    So, we guess it's happening then. First announced over the summer under its earlier title "Maersk Alabama" with Paul Greengrass to direct and Tom Hanks to star, not much was heard since and we began to wonder if it was yet another project stuck in development for the director. But nope...

    New Hollywood Graffiti from Hanksy

    Has Banksy gone Hollywood? No, the folks at FunnyOrDie have posted a best of Hanksy slideshow, where you can see the visage of the grinning Hanks in various knock-offs of Banksy's heavy-handed street art. The best, perhaps, is an inexplicable photo of Hanks on a fast-food trash can.
