    Review: Disneynature's Entertaining, Beautifully Shot 'Bears,' Narrated By John C. Reilly

    It seems fitting that Disney, a studio that has had such a solidly illustrious history with anthropomorphic bears (between Winnie the Pooh, the Country Bears at Disneyland and Br'er Bear from "Song of the South," all the way up to the magical bears that populated Pixar's Oscar-winning "Brave"), woul...

    Review: Patrice Leconte's Edgeless Drama 'A Promise' Starring Rebecca Hall

    He’s fallen out of favor a bit in the last few years, but there was a time when Patrice Leconte was one of the most popular foreign filmmakers in the U.S. While he was never a favorite with the hipper critics, over the 1990s and early 2000s, films like “Ridicule,” “ The Girl On The Bridge,” “The Man...

Also, don’t get married, don’t participate in weddings, just never go anywhere or do anything. I’m starting to wonder if George R.R. Martin is an anti-marriage advocate or something. I do think t...
