    Book Review: 'Man Of Steel' Novelization Slightly Expands The Movie With Minor New Scenes & Textures Added To The Story

    Superhero movies mean merchandise, which for most studios, is where the real money lies once the box office cycle is done. Because while Warner Bros. is likely enjoying (and still counting) the $580 million that "Man of Steel" has brought in so far, they are likely just as excited to see the sales o...

    Review: 'Grown Ups 2' Starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock & David Spade

    Spoiler alert: the very last joke of “Grown Ups 2” involves a character passing gas on Salma Hayek. This is Salma Hayek, one of the great actresses of international cinema, a global star in multiple languages, one of the most beautiful women in the world, and an Oscar nominee. This is Salma Hayek, w...

    Why 'Killing Season' Starring Robert De Niro and John Travolta Is the Summer's Guiltiest Pleasure

    John Travolta, speaking in a leaden Bosnian accent, hurtles arrows at Southern war vet Robert De Niro while chasing him through the Appalachian woods. That's the entire premise for "Killing Season," an absurdly silly one-note thriller that's ironically pretty entertaining on its own terms.

    Review: 'Pawn Shop Chronicles' Starring Paul Walker, Elijah Wood, Brendan Fraser, Thomas Jane, Matt Dillon, Lukas Haas & More

    There’s an alternate reality somewhere, wherein “Pawn Shop Chronicles” is not released in theaters on July 12th, but instead is projected on the wall of a small, narrow hallway in Comic-Con, never to be heard from again.

    The one element of Guillermo del Toro's gargantuan "Pacific Rim" that does not seem to be dividing audiences into warring camps is the fierce and charismatic performance of Rinko Kikuchi as the gifted giant robot pilot Mako Mori, whose emotions cut through the visual clutter of every scene she's in...

    'Pacific Rim' Review: Del Toro's Monster-Scale Epic Needs You!

    Guillermo del Toro is the latest director to enter the summer 2013 tentpole sweepstakes, and the advance tracking on his gigantic monster spectacle "Pacific Rim" doesn't bode well for an opening boffo enough to justify its $180 million cost.
