    Review: 'Hop' Is Like Opening An Easter Egg And Finding Nothing Inside

    "Hop," the new animation/live action hybrid from the folks that brought us this past summer's surprise smash "Despicable Me," comes with a premise so ingeniously prepackaged that you'll wonder why nobody had come up with it before. A canny hodgepodge of "The Santa Clause," "Elf," and a handful of ot...

    Chloe Moretz Joins Tim Burton's 'Dark Shadows'

    Just last week, Chloe Moretz hinted via Twitter that she'd landed a role in a big, huge upcoming film with an incredibly famous director. Everyone was talking about "The Hunger Games," but Gary Ross isn't exactly a household name. We had our suspicions, especially when she gave an interview to MTV s...

    Review: 'Cat Run' A Fizzy Soda Of Old School Action

    John Stockwell's movies as a director pop and fizzle like the sensation of opening a soda can. He's focused primarily, almost cynically, on the youth market, with films like "Blue Crush" and "Turistas" exploring the exoticism of sensual, almost exclusively American youthful exuberance. Unfortunately...

    Review: David Schwimmer's 'Trust' A Thoughtful Look At A Tricky Subject

    In 2011, we are so used to relationships blossoming through the internet and various social channels that it takes awhile into "Trust" to foresee the danger lurking. Directed by David Schwimmer, the triggering thriller manages to avoid the easy pitfalls of what could resemble an afterschool special ...

    Critic's Notebook: New Directors/New Films Shows Flawed Movies, For Good Reasons

    Most film festival programmers will admit that you can't please everyone. At festivals large and small, the people responsible for the movies in their lineups smile at the podium and vouch for their choices, readily aware that the program's quality is anything but impeccable. However, New Directors/...

    'Pirates 4' Star Sam Clafin & Newcomer Alicia Vikander Win Leads In 'The Seventh Son'

    For the most part, the spate in recent years of teen-targeting franchises based on successful young adult novels have left us pretty cold. There've been a few gems ("Bridge to Terabithia," "The Spiderwick Chronicles"), but generally speaking we've found little to like in the "Twilight"s or "Percy Ja...

    A Moment of Self Promotion

    What a way to wake up on a crappy, snowy, rainy April 1st. I sure hope this isn't an April Fool's Day joke, but I just got named to The Times of London's 100 Greatest Arts Tweeters. The story is behind a pay wall but I will post the full list of film and TV people after the jump.

    'Tales From The Gangster Squad' Writer Will Beall May Rewrite 'Logan's Run' For Nicolas Winding Refn

    Considering the spate of remakes and reboots, it takes a real feat to rouse our interest in one. Even with a promising creative team involved, a new version can sometimes just end up feeling redundant with many projects -- some simply don't need to be remade. But at the same time, we're not against ...

    Review: "The Kennedys" Is Off-the-Charts Bad, But Not Because of Its History

    Poor Greg Kinnear. Poor Tom Wilkinson. I came away from the ham-fisted miniseries The Kennedys feeling bad for those actors, because they are quite good as JFK and his father, Joe. (You’ll notice I didn’t add “Poor Katie Holmes” as Jackie.) Kinnear and Wilkinson don’t have two worthwhile lines or sc...
