    Watch: Four Clips Of Cameron Crowe & Elton John Discussing Their Documentary With Leon Russell "The Union'

    While on the surface it appeared as if Cameron Crowe laid dormant after 2005's "Elizabethtown," the truth is quite the opposite. The "Vanilla Sky" filmmaker wrote a Marvin Gaye film (still unproduced as of now) and a "Jerry Maguire"-like romantic comedy set in ...

    All The Songs In 'We Bought A Zoo' (Yes, That Was Temple Of The Dog You Heard)

    While audiences seemed cool on the idea of Matt Damon hanging out with a bunch of animals in "We Bought A Zoo" (Vulture has a few pretty good theories on why that happened) they've been missing out a movie that has more heart than you might expect, and keeps the twee factor surprisingl...

    Review: Feel-Good & Earnest 'We Bought A Zoo' Hits All The Heartwarming Notes

    Pitched somewhere between an earnest and romantically idealistic chronicle of loss and hope and a poignant examination of grief and bitter pains of family, Cameron Crowe's "We Bought A Zoo," occasionally still slathers it on too thick with the saccharine sentimentality and telegra...

    It was almost exactly thirteen months ago today, that Matt Damon first started teasing about Cameron Crowe's "We Bought A Zoo" during press rounds for "True Grit" (seems like forever ago, doesn't it?). At the time Damon mentioned that along with the script, Crowe had put ...
