    Is it safe to say that this has been a pretty good year for Ethan Hawke? First, “Before Midnight” comes out to rave reviews across the board, then “The Purge” winds up being a surprise box office hit over the summer, and in “Getaway”… Okay, let’s just pretend that one never happened.

    THE HOST

    Having suffered through the last two installments of the heavy-breathing "Twilight Saga," I wasn’t eager to see the latest film based on a novel by Stephenie Meyer.

    Review: 'The Host' Is A Dopey & Dull Sci-Fi Disaster

    Last fall saw the end of what appeared, for a little while at least, to be a seemingly endless series of "Twilight" films. The moony film series, based on a series of equally moony novels by Mormon housewife Stephenie Meyer, were torturously lengthy, poorly plotted trifles, the stuff of dime-store r...

    What’s wrong, can’t wait for the next adaptation of a young adult novel to hit the silver screen? Well if the box-office-shattering release of “The Hunger Games” didn’t quench your thirst for YA lit-based movies, perhaps a few images from the latest adaptation of “Twilight” saga author Stephenie Mey...

    Max Irons Lands Other Male Lead Opposite Saoirse Ronan In Andrew Niccol's 'The Host'

     "In Time" didn't quite provide the comeback that some were hoping for for writer/director Andrew Niccol, who penned "The Truman Show" and directed "Gattaca." Despite playing in the helmer's wheelhouse of big-idea sci-fi, the film was poorly received, ...
