The violence subsides suddenly t...

    Steve Carell in the Sweet, Endearing 'The Way Way Back'

    Just when it seemed that the days of overpaying for Sundance movies had ended, this year Fox Searchlight spent almost $10 million for the very conventional-sound coming-of-age movie The Way Way Back.

However, that's not the case for Ben Wheatley, whose wi...

    Review: 'The Way, Way Back' Starring Sam Rockwell, Steve Carell, Toni Collette & More

    Back in 2012, “The Descendants” took home the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay, and most people were probably surprised to see Alexander Payne (a previous winner for “Sideways” and nominee for “Election”) flanked by Dean Pelton from “Community” and that dude from “Club Dread.” For the first time in...

    Review: Kevin Hart's New Stand-Up Movie 'Let Me Explain'
