    Almost no genre (bar perhaps the romantic-comedy) revolves around formula as heavily as the horror film. Obviously there are sub-categories: the haunted-house film, the zombie flick, the vampire movie. But a disproportionate amount of the involves a group of horny teens going to a remote location, t...

    Immersed in Movies: Andrew Stanton's Leap of Faith with 'John Carter' (VIDEO)

    So what are we to make of "John Carter"? A fascinating failure, as Anne Thompson has suggested? Another "Dune" that's lovely to look at but short on narrative? Well, Francois Truffaut once wrote that fascinating failures are more memorable than safe successes.
