    Review: 'Movie 43' Strains For Laughs With Uninspired Collection Of Comedy Shorts

    What is there to say, analytically, about “Movie 43”? Not released in theaters as much as inexplicably materializing in front of our very eyes, “Movie 43” has no moral, no overarching story, and no point other than the opportunity for Hollywood stars to play silly for a short...

    Joss Whedon Says 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Will Be "Twisted," 'Avengers 2' Will Be "Complex & Difficult"

    As follow-ups to one of the three biggest movies of all time go, making a Shakespeare movie in your back garden with your friends must go down in history as one of the more unlikely ones.

    SXSW Review: James Gunn's 'Super' With Rainn Wilson & Ellen Page Is Twisted, But Uneven

    “Shut up, Crime!” bellows Rainn Wilson in “Super.” Such a random demand is highlighted by the outsized appearance of the speaker, clad in thick red fabrics, stocky and pear-shaped within a makeshift superhero costume.
