    Time Magazine Names 'Cloud Atlas' The Worst Movie Of 2012; 'John Carter' Comes In Second Place

    Well, you can't have the best of the year without the worst, and while Cahiers Du Cinema got the ball rolling on the top films of the year, Time Magazine has dropped their rundown of the worst. And topping it all? The Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer's "Cloud Atlas."

    Box Office: 'Paranormal Activity 4' Scares Up The Top Spot This Weekend

    Prepare for the paradigm shift. No one at Paramount is shedding tears that “Paranormal Activity 4” is set to open lower than the second and third films in the series. One very obvious reason for this is the series itself, which allows for very low production costs. The latest film in the horror fran...

    In Theaters: 'The Sessions' Hopes 'Nobody Walks' Over To 'Holy Motors,' While 'Alex Cross' Is A Whole New Kind Of 'Paranormal Activity'

    First off: big thanks to Katie for taking over last week! In that spirit of camaraderie, we suggest you round up a few friends and head out to the multiplex (or art house; we're not picky). You’re in for a round of scares, laughs, tears, and karate chops to the face. Also, Tyler Perry appears on scr...

    Don't Ever Cross Alex Cross: The 10 Most Awful Movie Poster Taglines

    This week marks the less-than-eagerly awaited release of "Alex Cross," which sees inexplicably popular drag artist Tyler Perry take up the mantle of the titular police psychologist played by Morgan Freeman in "Kiss The Girls" and "Along Came A Spider." There are many amusing/baffling things about th...

    Review: 'Alex Cross' Is Cliché, Action Movie Finger Paint

    Apparently the Alex Cross character, originated by best-selling author James Patterson in an unending series of pulp novels, and brought to the screen twice before (in a pair of forgettable, moodily-lit Morgan Freeman thrillers), is a bankable enough property to re-launch a large-ish franchise aroun...

    Watch: Over-Dramatic Threats Abound From Tyler Perry & Matthew Fox In 7 Clips From 'Alex Cross'

    While the prospect of multi-hyphenate Tyler Perry gearing up for a lead detective role in “Alex Cross” initially perked the interest of some, it was the first look at Matthew Fox playing the film's bulked-up burst of insanity that really showed some promise, and now a rush of seven c...

    Watch: It's Madea Vs. A Freaky Looking Matthew Fox In First Trailer For 'Alex Cross'

    He's put away the wigs and oversized floral dresses, and now Tyler Perry wants you to consider him as a Serious Actor. And we'd love to, but unfortunately "Alex Cross" unintentionally looks like a parody of the cat-and-mouse crime thriller.

    Lee Daniels' 'The Paperboy' Will Land On Theater Doorsteps On October 5th

    Critics were not kind to Lee Daniels' "The Paperboy" when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last month. Reviews were vicious, and we called it "a lurid, florid, humid, flaccid and insipid waste of time and money for the audience and for everyone who made it." While the...

    First Look At Tyler Perry And An Insanely Ripped Matthew Fox In 'Alex Cross,' Plus Images Of Fox In 'Emperor'

    On "30 Rock"'s season finale last night, Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan) announced his intention to open his own movie studio that makes films where he dresses up as an elderly woman, that appeal entirely to black audiences. It's an obvious dig at the ludicrously successful Tyler Perry, who's made milli...
