    The 5 Most WTF Moments From 'The Counselor'

    Acidic, cynical, perhaps having a twisted laugh on those who think they’re in control of their own fate, Ridley Scott’s “The Counselor” is an incredibly moribund and bleak poem about greed, chance, and the dark side of man. It’s like a merciless and blistering riff on the adage, “If you want to make...

    'Bad Grandpa' Pulls Young Males, 'Counselor' Flops, '12 Years' Makes Top Ten, NC-17 'Blue' Starts Strong

    Who knew? All it took to bring back the core males MIA from theaters was a film about an 86-year-old. Paramount's "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa" opened to an easy #1 Friday with $12.6 million (including Thursday late shows). Maybe Emmanuelle Riva should have stuck around a little longer after the O...

    NC-17? Hell, Ridley Scott Says His 'Blood Meridian' Adaptation Would Have Been "Double X" Horrific

    While this weekend's two notable releases--“Blue is the Warmest Color” and Ridley Scott's “The Counselor”--had us contemplating the explicit and aberrant examples in film from years past, it should be noted that the “Gladiator” director could've brought both to the big screen in a big way--if only a...

    12 Celebrated Novelists-Turned-Screenwriters And How They Fared

    There was a time when everyone wore hats and screenwriting was a lot less respectable a specialization for a writer than it is today.

    Critics Show No Mercy for Ridley Scott's 'The Counselor': "It's just bad Cormac McCarthy" (REVIEW AND ROUNDUP)

    A-list director Ridley Scott can round up his pick of top Hollywood talent, and did so with elegantly violent border thriller "The Counselor," which opens Friday. Unfortunately, the first screenplay written by novelist Cormac McCarthy tries to spice up a torrid fish-out-of-water crime thriller with ...

    Review: 'The Counselor,' Written By Cormac McCarthy And Directed By Ridley Scott, Is An Equally Chilling And Ridiculous Companion Piece to Costa-Gavras' 'Capital'

    "The Counselor" is written by Cormac McCarthy with the sort of grim, existentially weary atmosphere one might expect, but it's directed by Ridley Scott like a wild grindhouse picture.
