    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

    It would be unfair, and inaccurate, to call Rango a one-joke movie. There may be two or three; I didn’t count. The first laugh comes with the appearance of a funny-looking Mariachi bird quartet who opens the film and act as a kind of Greek chorus.

    Rachel Nichols Says Only Duke, Storm Shadow & Snake Eyes Coming Back For 'G.I. Joe 2'

    So Stephen Sommers left (or was kicked off), somewhat bizarrely, "Step Up" director Jon Chu entered and the only question that remained was just who from "G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra" would be returning for sequel. Turns out, very few people.

    Exclusive: Teresa Palmer Talks 'Track Town'; Says It's A Mix Of 'The Wackness' & 'Thelma & Louise'

    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.

    In Theaters: 'The Adjustment Bureau,' 'Rango,' 'Take Me Home Tonight,' 'Beastly'

    It's Friday, and we've finally shaken off the contact high we got from James Franco at the Oscars. We had to snag some uppers from Anne Hathaway just to get through the week (somehow the footage of her rehearsing the Jessie Spano "I'm so Excited" scene has yet to hit the web). Has everyone recovered from that annual weird-fest? It's like they try and make it more bizarre every year. But it's our tradition, and we have to keep watching. Thank you all for reading the liveblog, and commenting. We woke up to anxiety dreams that after the regular Oscars, there was another, completely different Oscars to liveblog. Not that we don't love it, we just get sleepy is all (wine is advised for extra viewing pleasure). But it's a new week, so let's hop right back on that horse, shall we?!

    Not Winning: Charlie Sheen Not Unleashing His Warlock Powers From His F-18 In 'The Hangover 2'

    #Winning? Try #Failing. Charlie Sheen and his addiction to being the best is obviously omnipresent right now. You might love the magic from his fingertips now, but in a week it's gonna be as cute as "Borat" quotes. But with Sheen on everyone's minds these days -- the actor joined Twitter and gained a million followers in just over 24 hours -- specious and unchecked rumors are bound to make the rounds by hit-hungry opportunists.

    Emily Blunt Does Not Want To Be The Girlfriend in a Comic Book Film

    I could not love this young woman anymore. Everything I've seen her in has been fantastic. If you haven't seen her debut in My Summer of Love you are missing something.

    "Beastly": Can Magic Be Modern?

    “Beastly,” quality aside, is nothing if not an interesting film. How do you effectively take a fairy tale, modernize it, and throw it up onto the big screen? It’s one thing to take one of these classic stories and lushly illustrate it, à la Disney, but it’s entirely another to make a full-on modern live-action version. The new film, based on the novel by Alex Finn and starring Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer as the young beauty and her beast, is a testament to the difficulty of this kind of project. Some parts of the film work, and marvelously. But for the most part, the adaptation just doesn’t pan out. What tries to be a hip urban refurbishing of timeless classic tale turns into an extended magical episode of "Gossip Girl."
