    "Cowboys & Aliens" & Obnoxious White Guilt

    When the Native Americans first saw European ships, these vessels may as well have been spaceships. And so goes the long-realized metaphors about aliens and the white man.

Only in a movie like...

Anyway, after dropping a wealth of footage at Comic-Con, it seems Fox wants to give away as much of this movie as possible before it hits theaters (reminiscent of their campaign for "X-Men: First Class"), so now barely one week later, we no...

    New In Theaters - Skip "Cowboys And Aliens;" See "Attack The Block" Instead

    The title says all you need to know; 2 movies with "alien attack" themes amongst the films opening this weekend. 1 is ridiculously expensive but sucks; the other cost a fraction of what the first one cost, and is a better film.

    Jet Li Apparently Has Better Things To DoWith a director now in place in the shape of Simon West, the man behind “Con Air” and a bunch of movies that offered greatly diminished returns, and with a release date now set for just over a year from now, "The Expendables 2" will presumably start casting u...

    Now we know what the 49th New York Film Festival opener on September 30 will be: Roman Polanski's Carnage. It's an odd choice, because needless to say, the director himself will not be able to attend, given his status as an exile. (That's what satellite feeds are for.) Based on Yasmina Reza's 2009 T...
