    White House Secrets Revealed In 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'

    So let’s get this straight: slavery in the U.S. lasted so long because vampires supported it. In fact, Jefferson Davis made a deal between the Confederacy and the undead. That explains a lot, including why Abraham Lincoln was so determined to obliterate vampires, even to the point of snea...

    Review: 'Mary Pickford: The Muse Of The Movies' An Adoring Look At America's Sweetheart

    What does it mean to be on the A-list? In addition to being a box office draw, which is a must, those within that rareified air can often call the shots creatively on their own movies, command a high salary and even develop their own projects. But while she's primarily remembered now as "Am...

    The first time you see Merida's red curly hair flowing in the wind as she rides atop her horse going full speed at the beginning of Brave you immediately know that this is not your typical Pixar film.

    Review Roundup: 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' Only Half Succeeds in Marrying American History with Stylized Vampire Pulverizing

    Reviews are coming in for distinctively stylistic director Timur Bekmambetov's "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter." While the slo-mo-then-ramp-up action sequences are impressing, the story is lacking in coherency as it melds 3D bloodsuckers with a particularly pernicious moment in American history...

    LAFF 2012 Review - 'Middle Of Nowhere' (aka "Nothing But A Woman")

    Its star-studded, 800-seat West Coast premiere as a gala screening at the Los Angeles Film Festival last night, deserved a redit and repost of my review of the film after I saw it as the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

    Steve Carell and Keira Knightley On The Run From The Apocalypse: 'Seeking a Friend ...'

    Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is something rare: a sunny, charming apocalypse film. Even the off-beat pairing of Steve Carell and Keira Knightley – what?! – works better than you’d imagine, evidence that Carell really can do anything, even play a romantic lead. No...

    ABFF 2012 Review - 'Beasts Of The Southern Wild' (A Striking Feature Debut On Courage & Resiliency)

    Ultimately an ode to human resilience and self-reliance, Beasts Of The Southern Wild feels initially a little scattered, especially if you aren’t already familiar with the story; however by the second act, it all starts to come together and make sense. But what’s actually kind of in...

    Review: 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' Is A Surprisingly Solid Mix of History & Horror

    One of the biggest question marks of the summer movie season has been "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," Timur Bekmambetov's $70 million R-rated historical mash-up that sees the sixteenth President of the United States fighting undead creatures and the evils of slavery, all at the same time (in 3D, ...
