It might have looked like some kind of swords and sorcery geekfest, but in fact, it turned out to be a rich, complex drama worthy of the best of the cable network's output, with an impeccable cast (including the Emmy-nominated Pet...

    Albert Brooks Talks Dad Role In New Judd Apatow Film, Says Jonah Hill And Vince Vaughn May Appear

    Star Also Turned Down A Role In Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Only God Forgives,' But Wants To Be In 'Logan's Run'Now that Terrence Malick has evolved into a workhorse, much to the pleasure of every cinemaniac, if there's another guy we'd like to see working more frequently, it would be Albert Brooks. He by no means has a small body of work, but for 40+ years in the business, there are surprisingly few credits to his name. Despite this, however, he has managed to craft several memorable movies and characters: his Oscar-nominated turn in James L. Brooks's "Broadcast News" was unquestionably affecting, he was a perfect ingredient in the moving Pixar ...

    Stanley Tucci & Chris Cooper Join Robert Redford's 'The Company You Keep'

    Say what you like about Robert Redford's directorial efforts (like, for instance, that "Quiz Show" aside, they very closely replicate the experience of watching paint dry. Underwater), but he knows how to stack a film with a cast of ringers. Even a film as dull as his recent "The Conspirator" was ab...

    TIFF11: "Like Crazy" Raises the Bar on Romance

    What if “One Day” had been a good film? Better yet, where are all of the good romance movies? Romcoms included, every love story with big stars on screen seems to turn into a predictable disaster. Even the more interesting ideas and creative scripts seem forced into rote conclusions and overdone plot elements by the time they make it to theaters.
