    film review: King's Speech

    I sometimes recoil when people start spreading Oscar buzz about a movie I haven’t seen—or even had a chance to see—yet, but I’m willing to forgive this year’s campaign for The King’s Speech because it’s such a terrific movie. There are times when I look around me and get the feeling that civilizatio...

    Documentary On Riot Grrl Kathleen Hanna In The Works

    If you were a fan of punk rock during the early 1990s, there's no way you could have missed the noise coming out of the Pacific Northwest. An underground feminist movement known as riot grrl gripped the scene, calling for great accessibility for women and it spawned a creative outpouring with zines, art and activism all aimed at giving women a voice. And of course, there was the music. Bands like Bratmobile, Excuse 17, Heavens to Betsy, Huggy Bear, Sleater-Kinney and Team Dresch contributed to the outpouring of female-led acts -- some more notable and memorable than others -- but none would have the widespread impact and acclaim of Bikini Kil...

    'Made In Dagenham' Soundtrack Features James Brown, Dusty Springfield, The Kinks & More

    "Made In Dagenham" is the story about the fight for women's rights set against the backdrop of 1960s England, and as we noted in our review, the film features "a solid soundtrack that is interesting, largely because it doesn’t feature songs that are overused for the period."

    Neil LaBute May Direct Film Version Of Stephen Sondheim's Musical 'Company'

    For a man who's long been a giant in the field of musical theater, it's somewhat surprising that Stephen Sondheim hasn't been more of a feature on the big screen. Sure, there was his score for Alain Resnais' "Stavisky," a few original songs for Warren Beatty's "Dick Tracy" and co-writing the script ...

    Review: 'Burlesque' Is Trashy Fun, Until It's Not

    In "Burlesque," the gaudy new movie musical, Christina Aguilera plays a buxom nobody from Iowa who comes to the big city in search of fame and money, although she's such a cipher that this might be the audience projecting motivation on a character that simply seems to glide through whole sequences, sometimes quite literally. After a painfully inept "looking for a job" montage that gives the term "workmanlike" a bad name, she comes across a squat building on Sunset Boulevard that promises "The Best View on the Sunset Strip - Without Any Windows." Inside, Alan Cumming, grabbing every second of screen time he has and devouring it carnivorously, ...

    Alternate 'Inception' Poster Revealed, Christopher Nolan Talks Theories About The Film's Ending

    An alternate poster for "Inception" has been revealed and well, it's pretty clear to see why it was an alternate. The stars remain figures in the distance as the cityscape curls up around them and really, it's not as striking as the official one sheets and character posters that got the thumbs up. B...
