    Poster of the Week

    Looks pretty innocuous, doesn't it? Actually, One Magic Christmas, directed by master of wintry melancholy Phillip Borsos (The Grey Fox), a mostly Canadian production released by Walt Disney Studios in 1985, is grim stuff indeed. Despite its kid-friendly trappings, in its harsh, death-tinged journey to human frailty this is more Eyes Wide Shut territory than, say, Miracle on 34th Street. It's also one of the most potentially dangerous off-message films I can recall ever geared towards family audiences: in this case, a sturdy, reformed belief in the wonder of Christmas can not only rejuvenate one spiritually, but also potentially bring your fa...

    In Theaters: 'Little Fockers,' 'True Grit,' 'Gulliver's Travels'

    There are plenty of options for those of you seeking refuge in a dark movie theater from family fights, creepy uncles and the increasingly annoying and endless loop of Christmas carols in every mall across America. But a word of advice? If it has a big budget, stay the hell away. A number of options are hitting multiplexes this week, a couple boasting A-list names as mistletoe to get into your wallet, but they probably aren't worth your time. Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro return for "Little Fockers" which, if the trailers have been anything to go by, is a penis-stabbing comedy of some kind. Meanwhile, Jack Black gets supersized in "Gulliver'...

The project originated as a script by French comedy master Jacques Tati, completed with his writing partner Henri Marquet shortly before Tati would tackle his large-scale comedy master...

    Cate Blanchett In, Greta Gerwig Out For Noah Baumbach's 'While We're Young'

    Filming Begins Next SummerWhile we'll always long for the never-made version of "Greenberg" with Mark Ruffalo and Amy Adams, the fact that Ben Stillerand Noah Baumbach are now total besties means that financing probably comes much, much easier for the indie auteur, and if that means he gets more films greenlit, then who are we to complain? It was with much excitement that reports broke earlier in the month that Baumbach was quickly gearing up another film, "While We're Young," a relationship film (shock!) with Ben Stiller and James Franco set to star, and with offers out to both Cate Blanchett and Greta Gerwig. And while we love both actresse...
