    10 Weird Animated Films

    Almost every week it seems like there's a new animated film being released to the multiplexes (many of them in the costly and annoying 3D format), so it takes a special kind of film to break out of the (mostly) computer animated pack. Which is why it's so nice to report that "Rango," Gore Verbinski's surrealist spaghetti western (which stars Johnny Depp as a chameleon searching for his identity), is profoundly weird. It's this trait, along with its jaw-dropping gorgeous animation, that makes it stand out, loud and proud, and should ensure a long and fruitful life (if not immediate commercial success and/or acceptance).

    Elle & Dakota Fanning To Play The Shaggs In A Biopic?

    How do you prevent sibling rivalry? Do a movie together. Not a band plan at all, but when it's something as potentially amazing as this, we hope the Fanning sisters work collaboratively more often.

    movie review: The Adjustment Bureau

    I’m a sucker for movies about fate, destiny, and heavenly intervention—going all the way back to On Borrowed Time and Here Comes Mr. Jordan up through Ghost Town with Ricky Gervais—so I was more than willing to accept the premise of The Adjustment Bureau, based on Philip K. Dick’s short story. In this case, the buttoned-down business types played by Anthony Mackie and John Slattery are here on earth to make sure things go “according to plan.” So when hotshot politician Matt Damon chances to meet Emily Blunt and falls in love at first sight, they’re forced to—

    movie review: Rango

    Actress Plans On Making Writing & Directing Debut With The FilmWhile she's only been in handful of Hollywood films to date, it's undeniable that Teresa Palmer is an actress bound for big things. Still in the early bloom of her career, Palmer's presence hasn't gone unnoticed by studio types. Last month she starred in "I Am Number Four" while last summer she appeared in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" and this weekend finds her taking a totally different sort of role in the comedy "Take Me Home Tonight." She auditioned for "The Amazing Spider-Man" and she was circling George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road" until production delays on that film killed her potential involvement And while enticing projects continue to cross her desk, Palmer is ready to take her career by the reins, with big plans to write and direct.
