Russell (Three Kings, The Fighter) to write and direct Columbia's action-adventure Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. That's because this franchise wannabe is based on a Sony PlayStation 3 g...

    Oscar Talk: Diane Lane vs. Annette Bening vs. Julianne Moore, Inception, Hereafter, The Way Back

    There's still a long way to go in the Oscar race. Kris Tapley and I debate whether Secretariat is this year's mainstream Blind Side, Diane Lane is this year's Sandra Bullock, Julianne Moore and Annette Bening will both make it for The Kids Are All Right, and if Chris Nolan's Inception, John Cameron ...

    On the Rise: Rooney Mara of "The Social Network"

    Not only is David Fincher's "The Social Network" reaping critical accolades left, right and center, with lofty comparisons being made to everything from "The Godfather" (!) to "Citizen Kane" (!!), but the film is also proving itself to be a breeding ground for Hollywood's brightest stars of the future, with star-making turns from Jesse Eisenberg, a surprisingly credible Justin Timberlake, and future Spidey himself Andrew Garfield. Arguably the biggest talent to emerge from Fincher's Facebook drama is Rooney Mara, who reportedly beat out the likes of Ellen Page and Carey Mulligan, to re-team with Fincher for the role of a lifetime as Lisbeth S...

    film review: Secretariat

    The secret of this film’s success is that it isn’t just the saga of a famous, prize-winning horse; it’s also the story of his owner, a suburban housewife and mom who stepped into a man’s world and took charge of an animal she believed to be a champion.
