    Interview: Wes Craven Says The Changing Pace Of Technology Attracted Him to 'Scream 4'

    This week, "Scream 4" hit both Blu-ray and DVD and while we had reservations when we initially saw it, it was still a lot of fun (maybe more-so on home video, which adds even more oomph to the wonderful, meta-textual opening sequence). There are also tons of delicious extras that give you a good pee...

    'Dredd' Director Pete Travis Locked Out Of Editing Room, Writer-Producer Alex Garland Takes Over

    It's never good news to hear when a director gets locked out of the editing bay, particularly when it comes to a big budget tentpole movie. While rumors of Stephen Sommers battling executives over "G.I. Joe: The Rise Of The Cobra" surfaced and were quickly scuttled, it didn't really matter because the movie made money and has spawned a sequel arriving next summer (though notably, without Sommers this time around). So whether or not this battle will have an effect on the movie creatively or otherwise, it does somewhat poison the well on perceptions of the film for the time being as fanboys will surely voice their concern (even if exact details...

    Real Steel—movie review

    From the billboards you might think thisis another Transformers movie—heaven help us—when in fact, Real Steel is a cross between Rocky and The Champ. It’s formulaic and unashamedly manipulative, but it’s played with sincerity…and it w...

    Poster Watch: Eastwood's J. Edgar Features Angry Multi-Colored DiCaprio

    New word on Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar from someone who has seen it: Leonardo DiCaprio is even better as the old J. Edgar Hoover than he is as the young one. The movie, written by Milk Oscar-winner Dustin Lance Black, cuts back and forth between the beginning and the end of Hoover's stellar five-deca...

    New Looks At Michelle Williams, Emma Watson & Kenneth Branagh In 'My Week With Marilyn'

    While The Playlist team is still arguing around the lunch table about whether or not the first trailer for "My Week With Marilyn" showcased an Oscar contender or just a well-put-together but not particularly remarkable period piece, there is no denying everyone in this thing looks pretty damn beauti...

    As long as Sarah Palin keeps talking about herself (and how likely is that to stop?), Jon Stewart can go on calling her out on her narcissism. Here he is on her non-announcement about her non-running for president.

    Review: 'Dirty Girl' With Juno Temple Is All Attitude & No Heart

    If there's one thing "Dirty Girl" has going for it -- and it's made abundantly clear even before the glittery title card, spelled out in swoopy, neon-lit letters like the name of a roller disco -- it's that it has attitude. The titular dirty girl is an Oklahoma teen named Danielle (Juno Temple) who acts out in class and sleeps around. She has an infectiously "fuck you" approach to just about everything, from her classmates, agog at her sexual promiscuity, to her soon-to-be stepdad (William H. Macy), to her teachers, who bump her down to a remedial class where the most pressing assignment is taking care of a bag of flour like it's an actual hu...
