    Alexander Payne Talks The Descendants, Clooney, Next Black and White Film, New Trailer

    Of all the fall movies, the one that hit me in the solar plexus, made me laugh and cry, and struck me as a likely Oscar contender in multiple categories, was heartfelt low-budget comedy The Descendants (November 18), Alexander Payne’s return to the screen, after winning best original screenpla...

    In this week's Oscar Talk podcast, In Contention's Kris Tapley and I debate Roman Polanski's NYFF-opener Carnage, which fails to improve on the play and is not going to be an Oscar contender, we agree, although I think it's an upscale crowd-pleaser. (My updated Oscar Chart is here.)

    Weekend Preview: Ides of March, Real Steel, The Way, Dirty Girl, War Doc Hell and Back Again

    The star power of this weekend's leading men -- George Clooney and Ryan Gosling of political drama The Ides of March and Hugh Jackman of amped-up sci-fi actioner Real Steel -- will make a dent in Dolphin Tale and Moneyball's current top spots.

In the mood for something French? Phillippe Le Guay's The Women on the 6th Floor is a charming trifle. Powerful war documentary Hell and Back Again is scoring the best rev...
