    Defending "The Conspirator"

    I found Robert Redford's The Conspirator to be haunting and effective – far from the history lesson disguised as a movie that I’d been reading about since it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. As Mary Surratt, the woman accused of conspiring in Abraham Lincoln’s assassination, Robin ...

    Review: 'Rio' Only Occasionally Takes Flight

    In "Rio," it's easy to get lost in the colorful characters and propulsive (not to mention rigidly straightforward) plot. The tale of a dislodged bird named Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) sent to South America to mate with another member of his extremely rare species (played by Anne Hathaway), is full of the kind of visual wonder that does a lot to dazzle, especially if you see it in 3D, where the birds (and other jungle wildlife) zoom out at you and into your lap. But if you pause longer than the movie ever does to think about what is actually going on, then you'll almost certainly become unglued and disinterested. For a movie this amazingly active, i...

    Guest Post: Bob Ray "Bringing It To The People, The Badass Way"

    First Look At Tilda Swinton & John C. Reilly In Lynne Ramsay's 'We Need To Talk About Kevin'

    It has been almost a decade since Lynne Ramsay's "Morvern Callar," and while some of that time was spent on an adaptation of "The Lovely Bones" that was scuttled (with Peter Jackson later delivering his take on the material to theaters), we're glad she's finally back. Next month she'll hit Cannes wi...

    Watch: #2 Full-Length Trailer For 'Cowboys & Aliens' Beams Onto Earth

    Well, if the goal was to hit mainstream America with this admittedly tough-to-market genre mash-up of western and sci-fi, Universal couldn't have chosen a more meat-and-potatoes crowd than the "American Idol" audience to show off the film to, and now that trailer has landed online for the rest of us...
