    'Django Unchained': Why Spike Lee Refuses to See It, More Reviews UPDATED

    Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," which opened Christmas Day, played well at the DGA screening I attended, as well as the subsequent L.A Academy screening. Audiences are flocking to see it (we'll do the box office numbers on Thursday) and critics love it (89% on Rotten Tomatoes, 80% on MetaCr...

    DVD Review: 'The Words' Has A Serious Case of Writer's Block

    It would be easy to come away from "The Words" with the impression that writing is a stiff, musty line of work — all grand ballrooms, solemn readings, and blue-blooded accents, a veritable Titanic of pretensions. This would be a mistake. The only sinking ship here is the film itself.

    'Django Unchained' Opens Big Today; What We Thought + What You Thought...

    Now and Then: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

    Early in "Meet Me in St. Louis," Esther Smith (Judy Garland) pines for the boy next door. Lent silky grace by Garland's perfect warble, Esther describes love — and, by extension, Vincente Minnelli's 1944 classic. "I want it to be something strange and wonderful," she says. "Something I'll always rem...
