    Review: Marvel's 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' Starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson & Robert Redford

    He might not be a space Viking or a talking raccoon, but Captain America was almost as tricky a character to bring to the screen in the 21st century as some of his Marvel contemporaries — standing for sincerity and purity in an age of grittiness and irony, and wearing the stars-and-stripes in an age...

    Review: 'RoboCop' Starring Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Abbie Cornish, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton & More

    Every movie should be approached with an open mind. Ideally, be it a film from Martin Scorsese or Friedberg and Seltzer, a reviewer should be going in without expectations, ready to play it as it lays. But it'd be dishonest to pretend that that was the case going in to "RoboCop," because it's a long...

    With some DreamWorks Animation movies, you can practically see and hear the pitch meeting that they came out of, as fully realized as any of the whiz-bang 3D computer graphics that will eventually coat movie theater screens nationwide.

    Wendell Pierce Reveals He Tried To Produce A Prequel To 'The Wire' Starring Samuel L. Jackson

    It must be an occasionally frustrating prospect for David Simon to ponder: as his superb HBO series “Treme” struggled with viewers (to the point where it's only receiving half a final season), “The Wire” continues to grow in popularity and adoration. It's then understandable that Simon would shun a ...

    Samuel L. Jackson Says M. Night Shyamalan Hasn't Made A Good Movie Since 'Unbreakable'

    The last time this writer wrote something even slightly negative about M. Night Shyamalan on this very site – the phrase "diminishing returns" was thrown about if memory serves - it was open season in the comments section. The writer-director certainly still has his passionate fans who don’t need mu...
