    In Defense Of Tyler Perry's 'Alex Cross,' A Critique Of The Source Material (The Real Culprit)

    Given this weekend's lackluster box office results for Tyler Perry's entry into action-hero movie territory, I thought I'd revisit this 2010 entry I posted on the old S&A site, which broke down James Patterson's I, Alex Cross, the novel that, at the time, we believed wo...

    Tyler Perry's Alex Cross Will Get Cross Again In 'Double Cross'

    Somebody's feeling confident. With "Alex Cross" currently sitting at a Rotten Tomatoes score of 30% and 35 over at Metacritic, you might think that the attempt to relaunch the character of Alex Cross -- played previously by Morgan Freeman in "Kiss The Girls" and &qu...

    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...

    Watch: Over-Dramatic Threats Abound From Tyler Perry & Matthew Fox In 7 Clips From 'Alex Cross'

    While the prospect of multi-hyphenate Tyler Perry gearing up for a lead detective role in “Alex Cross” initially perked the interest of some, it was the first look at Matthew Fox playing the film's bulked-up burst of insanity that really showed some promise, and now a rush of seven c...

    Watch Tyler Perry, Cicely Tyson, Matthew Fox In 6 Brand New Clips From 'Alex Cross'

    Well, D-day is fast approaching. Alex Cross opens this Friday. And, to some surprise, it'll be screened for the press before it opens - a rare occurence for a movie starring Tyler Perry; although this one he didn't write or direct. I'll be seeing it tomorrow night, in fact! My curio...

    Watch: It's Madea Vs. A Freaky Looking Matthew Fox In First Trailer For 'Alex Cross'

    He's put away the wigs and oversized floral dresses, and now Tyler Perry wants you to consider him as a Serious Actor. And we'd love to, but unfortunately "Alex Cross" unintentionally looks like a parody of the cat-and-mouse crime thriller.

    Weekend Box Office: 'Rio' Defeats 'Madea' Before The Summer Onslaught Begins

    Hollywood doesn’t really recognize the seasons as clearly as you. Which is why even though you’re in school, summer begins in May, and even though you still have a full month of spring, that period usually closes in Hollywood around this time every year. In 2011, “summer” is beginning even earlier w...

    Tyler Perry Starts Fight With Real Filmmaker, Says Spike Lee Should 'Go Straight To Hell'

    "Spike can go straight to hell! You can print that. I am sick of him talking about me, I am sick of him saying, ‘This is a coon; this is a buffoon.' I am sick of him talking about black people going to see movies. This is what he said: ‘You vote by what you see,' as if black people don't know wha...
