    Gabrielle Union Will Play John Slattery's Girlfriend In Indie Dramedy "Family Tree"

    Well, damn... it seems like we hadn't heard much from Gabrielle Union over the last few years, as far as her big screen movie career is concerned. She's done some TV since then, but the last time she was in a theatrically released movie was in 2008's Cadillac Records, although it feels like it's bee...

It has been described as a blend of “Adaptation” and “Weird Science,” as the young protagonist follows the advice of writing the woman he think...

    Review: 'The Hangover Part II' Is A Lazy, Unpleasant & Unfunny Mess

    Unlike most of the summer movies, which seem to be thundering into theaters without any real anticipation beyond the cacophonous marketing hype, "The Hangover Part II" seems to be a film people are unreasonably excited for. The 2009 original, directed by Todd Phillips, has metamorphosed from simply being the biggest R-rated comedy of all time (and winner of a Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy Golden Globe) to being a movie that average filmgoers consider an instant "classic" of the genre and a staple of any fun-lover's DVD collection. (It's also the biggest selling comedy DVD of all time. Jesus.) The prospect of another movie, again sta...

    Thelma and Louise Turns 20

    I can't believe that it is 20 years since Thelma and Louise was released. We still have so much work to do. This is a movie that resonated with people in a profound way, it's a movie that people still think about fondly, yet sadly it is a movie that never effected any long term change for women in...
