    Ranked: Our Favorite Directing Duos From Best To Worst

    This weekend comedy sequel “22 Jump Street” hits theaters, on a wave of goodwill and giggly advance reviews (our own included).

    Roger Corman Praises 'Gravity,' 'Captain Phillips' & 'Nebraska' In Interview With Jonathan Demme

    Two of the most remarkable careers in today's Hollywood belong to Roger Corman and Jonathan Demme: the former the unimaginably influential director of over 50 films and driving force behind going on 400, most of them brilliant B-movies; the latter the difficult-to-pin-down helmer behind “Silence of ...

    Watch: The Final Scene in ‘Captain Phillips’ That Should’ve Earned Tom Hanks An Oscar Nomination

    A great deal in a film can be forgiven if it entirely sticks the ending, and this past year has had no better example of this than “Captain Philips." Though a capably tense and well-rendered experience for two-thirds of the narrative, Paul Greengrass’ drama still hits another level as it sends its s...

    Talking Editing with the Oscar Nominees

    Editorially, all five films take us out of our comfort zones in this strange season of survival and rebirth: from the chameleon-like con of "American Hustle" to the abduction at sea in "Captain Phillips" to the weightless terror of "Gravity" to the ticking clock death sentence of "Dallas Buyers Club...

    Oscars: Could A Movie Other Than 'Gravity,' '12 Years A Slave' Or 'American Hustle' Win Best Picture?

    The awards season is in a bit of a lull, or an armistice if you will. With a few weeks passing since the most recent precursor awards, those up for the Oscars have been able to sit back and enjoy their status, most notably at this week's nominees luncheon. But the Cold War is about to end: voting fo...
