    "Captain America: The First Avenger" Captivates But Has Little Care for Character

    Ten years ago, Joe Johnston directed "Jurassic Park III," a much-maligned sequel to the Steven Spielberg original(s) that can be enjoyed if you forgive the more cartoonish, Joe Dante-esque turn of the series (speaking of which, Dante should helm part IV). And it's not really too much worse than Spielberg's own sequel ("The Lost World"). Now Johnston gives us the latest "Avengers" franchise title, "Captain America: The First Avenger," and at many times it begs to be thought of as an entry in Spielberg's "Indiana Jones" series. Again, it's a cartoonish distortion of the original(s), but it's also not any worse than the last Spielberg-directed i...

    Watch: Robert Pattinson Is A Top Hat Wearing Man Whore In Trailer For 'Bel Ami'

    While Twihards are probably still trying to compose themselves after yesterday's "Twilight: Breaking Dawn" presentation at Comic-Con, they may be dismayed after coming down from the high of the vampire franchise to see their beloved Edward playing such a relentless douchebag.

    Watch: Gina Carano Kick Ass in Trailer for Steven Soderbergh's "Haywire"

    Now you're just spoiling us, Steven Soderbergh! A week or so the ace trailer for his star-studded thriller "Contagion" dropped; now, with Comic-Con in full swing, we're treated to the preview for his other thriller, "Haywire," which looks equally as compelling. (He's also apparently not retiring aft...

    Watch Trailer For Steven Soderbergh's Actioner "Haywire" Starring MMA Star Gina Carano

    No, there's nobody black in it (at least not in any of the starring roles), but I generally like Steven Soderbergh's work, and this is maybe one of the more intriguing films he's done. I don't think of him as an action-director, and this looks like an action movie - at least, from the trailer I embe...

    While Angelina Jolie or Charlize Theron seem to get the few scripts in town requiring a kick-ass female lead, it boggles our mind that Zoe Saldana doesn't rank just as high as her colleagues. Ably showing in "Avatar" and "The Losers" (where she was pretty much the only thing worth watching) that she...
