    Review: Lars Von Trier Confronts Depression Head On In The Grim 'Melancholia'

    Spielberg, Tintin, and the Race for Oscar

    If the animated Oscar competition comes down to originality and boldness, then you can't rule out a potential horse race between "Rango" and "The Adventures of Tintin." Make no mistake: despite the outcry from traditionalists, "Tintin" is nothing if not animated, an...
