    Author James Patterson On How Studios Wanted Him To Make Alex Cross A White Man...

    Sadly, I feel my books have been better than the movies made from them. I’m a total movieholic, so that state of affairs is more depressing to me than it ought to be. My current paranoid theory is that I’m a victim of “caricature assassination” in certain Hollywood quarters — “Oh, that airport autho...

    Review: Race And Class Issues Clash With Lowbrow Comedy In 'Peeples'

    You’d be forgiven if you expected Tyler Perry to influence a large chunk of “Peeples,” the latest film to carry his name like a neon sign promising broad comedy and aggressive but dubious morality.

    Review: 'Alex Cross' Is Cliché, Action Movie Finger Paint

    Apparently the Alex Cross character, originated by best-selling author James Patterson in an unending series of pulp novels, and brought to the screen twice before (in a pair of forgettable, moodily-lit Morgan Freeman thrillers), is a bankable enough property to re-launch a large-ish franchise aroun...
