    The Most Tolerable Works of Tom Cruise: A Retrospective

    While this weekend's "Knight & Day" is on the early track towards being a bomb (or at least to be totally fair, it's underwhelmed so far) and is surely not Tom Cruise's finest work by a long shot (though it does have its charms), the picture does remind us that the while an international star, the c...

But just because there's so much to recommend the largely superlative, at times daringly dark (if even strategically so) Toy Story 3, there's no denying it follows closely in the footsteps of Ratatouille, Wall-E,...

While settling their late mother’s estate, the brother and sister discovered a letter she wrote to them, along with journals and photographs that document a four-day affair between their mother, an Italian-born housewife...
