    Review: 'Rio 2' Featuring The Voices Of Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Jamie Foxx And Andy Garcia

    These days, the potential for animated films is seemingly limitless. In the past few months, we've seen Disney's boldly contemporary fairy tale "Frozen" deservedly become the highest grossing animated movie of all time, while Hayao Miyazaki was able to delicately frame the story of a man who made wa...

    'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' First Reviews Unspool (TRAILER)

    Early reviews of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," in theaters May 2, have landed, and consensus is wishy-washy. Most critics agree that the film is too long and overstuffed, but that the romantic chemistry between leads Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone is hard to resist.

    Review: 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx & Dane DeHaan

    As far as superhero reboots go, "room for improvement" was probably the best way to sum up 2012's "The Amazing Spider-Man." Certainly financially, the film made a very healthy $750 million worldwide, but that's still less than any of the three Sam Raimi films that preceded it. And creatively, the fi...
