    Review: Nonsensical 'In Time' Will Waste Your Precious Hours & Minutes

    "In Time" is the kind of movie that literally kills off its most interesting thematic element and character about 10 minutes into the picture. To bring you up to speed, Andrew Niccol's latest sci-fi venture takes place in a future world where everyone is genetically programmed to stop aging at 25 years old, and moreover, time is used as currency. But that's not all. In addition to being able to buy everything from coffee to cars to prostitutes with the hour and minutes displayed glaringly in a digital readout on your forearm, once it runs out, you die right on the spot. A class system has emerged, of course, with the "rich" gaining virtual im...

    'The Fades' Star Johnny Harris Replaces Stephen Graham As One Of 'Snow White & the Huntsman' Dwarves

    After a long, somewhat troubled casting process, which involved cycling through most of the possible leading men in Hollywood before landing on "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth, filming on Universal's "Snow White and the Huntsman" is finally underway. And a good thing too -- thanks to a race with Relativity's "The Brothers Grimm: Snow White," the film was moved up six months to a release date next June. And despite some early misgivings (and perhaps because the rival film by Tarsem looks so garish), we're beginning to be intrigued by the project, which marks the directorial debut of commercials helmer Rupert Sanders, and stars Hemsworth, Kristen S...

    Review: Slick Bollywood Behemoth 'RA. One' Delivers Fleeting Pleasures

    While Hollywood holds the world's audience enraptured, unleashing big, burly CGI extravaganzas, burgeoning international companies are revving up to put a dent into the market. Enter "RA. One," Bollywood's most expensive production and arguably the first straightforward superhero film to come out of India's massively prolific movie factory. As with any tentpole (with a warm reception pouring in from the Indian press, news of a sequel in the works are inevitable), the film comes packaged with a colossal star -- Shahrukh Khan, probably most familiar to American viewer as the star of 2010's heavy-handed drama "My Name Is Khan"). Equally importan...
