    In a Summer Where Indie Sci-Fi Rules, 'Prometheus' Is Better Than It Has Any Right To Be

    There were plenty of reasons not to expect much from Ridley Scott's "Prometheus," primarily because Scott hasn't made a good movie in years. Thankfully, that's no longer the case.

    Review: Todd Solondz's 'Dark Horse' Deconstructs Man-Child Comedies, Mostly Toothlessly

    If there's one theme that's been prevalent -- nay omnipresent -- in American comedy (and some dramas) in the last half-decade or so, it's that of arrested development: the male (for they are usually male) who's been so coddled by parents, by society, by expectations, that he remains ...

    Let's Ask Again: Can Robert Pattinson Act?

    Robert Pattinson has made some daring artistic choices apart from his most famous, pasty-faced role; too bad so many of those fillms have been clunkers.

    Review: Distraught Young Black Cowboy Grieves Death of Friend in Short 'I Am John Wayne'

    I was able to catch a screener of the approximately 18-minute short I Am John Wayne, which Courtney profiled on the site last week. That post attracted much debate in the comment section, mostly due to the John Wayne reference in its title, and the possible negative connotations of that alleged...

    Why Do We Care Who Killed Rosie Larsen?

    In two episodes – as AMC’s trailers insist – we’ll know who killed Rosie Larsen. Given that the show isn’t about Rosie – it’s about Sarah Linden and, to a lesser extent, Stephen Holder and Darren Richmond – why is it so important that Rosie’s killer is revealed?

    Review: 'Bel Ami' Starring Robert Pattinson Fails To Seduce

    We watch a man in ragged clothes look longingly through the window of a fancy Belle Epoque Parisian restaurant. Later, the hungry man in his mean garret relives the moment, jealousy and bitterness at the injustice of his situation playing across his face. Did we mention the man is played by Robert P...

    Scowls and Smirks: 'Bel Ami' Is the Latest Proof That Robert Pattinson Needs a New Career Plan

    Robert Pattinson was cast in the biggest role of his burgeoning career not as an actor but an object of lust. The "Twilight" movies, which conclude with the final adaptation of Stephanie Meyers' vampiric book series this fall, fit Pattinson so perfectly as immortal hottie Edward Cullen...

    John Wayne—But Not In 3-D

    John Wayne’s 'Hondo' might have been the first major studio picture from the 3-D era of the 1950s to come to home video, but today’s welcome Blu-ray release from Paramount is in conventional 2-D. Too bad. Paramount trumpets the fact that it’s in widescreen for the first time, which is true.

    Book Review: 'Hollywood Movie Stills' Is A Beautiful Look Back At The Golden Age Of Cinema

    There's no such thing anymore as the "art" of the movie still, with images from movies now part and parcel of carefully orchestrated marketing or sales plans driving the films. They are, generally speaking, grist for the mill, and while the first look at an imminent blockbuster or secr...

    Now and Then: Wes Anderson and Ridley Scott, Two Master Stylists Whose Best Work Is Past

    Let me begin by clarifying my headline. I am not saying that Wes Anderson and Ridley Scott, two master stylists with new movies in theaters, will not someday surpass their best films; that kind of prediction is impossible and counterproductive. But it must be admitted that they set the bar high, and...
