    While he's taking a rare detour into straight up genre territory with the thriller "Savages," Oliver Stone is making a return to the familiar world of power and intrigue that has dominated the bulk of his work. From "Wall Street" (x2), "W.," "Nixon," "JFK" and "Alexander" to documentaries "Commandan...

    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").

    Paul Walker Sought To Take Lead Role In 'District B-13' Remake 'Brick Mansions'

    David Belle Will Reprise His Role From The Original FilmWhile Paul Walker has had an incredible career despite possessing the charisma of a park bench, he really wasn't going anywhere until the 'Fast and Furious' franchise picked him back up for the fourth installment in the series. Were it not for the fourth film's mammoth box office take (soon eclipsed by the monstrous performance of the fifth film), Walker was well on his way to fronting a sea of direct-to-DVD efforts, and not performing death-defying car stunts for action fans worldwide.

    Watch: Charming Trailer For 'Dr. Seuss' The Lorax'

    Adapting the carefully calibrated, imaginative and uniquely original worlds and characters created by Dr. Seuss is no easy feat, and the live action incarnations “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and “The Cat and the Hat” are the exact definition of how to do it wrong. But on the animated side, the writer's tales have fared much better. Of course, on the small screen, the animated 'Grinch' is a classic and a yearly ritual during the holiday season while "Horton Hears a Who!" from a few years back did Seuss some reasonable justice. Well, the team behind that film are back with "Dr. Seuss' The Lorax," and while the purists may take umbrage, it's...

    "(1)ne Drop: Conversations on Skin Color, Race, and Identity" Kickstarter Campaign

    Although adopted and enforced by white supremacists at the beginning of the 20th century in Tennessee, the 'one drop of black blood rule' seems to prevail in today's society. In many instances, the old-fashioned rule is the determining factor IMO (is it?) in racially identifying who is black and wh...
