    New Poster & Photos From The Counselor Starring Fassbender, Cruz, Diaz & Bardem

    When it comes to "The Counselor," Ridley Scott's new movie that's based on "No Country for Old Men" author Cormac McCarthy's first original screenplay, there seems to be no middle ground: it's either going to be amazing or utterly unwatchable.

    25 Films About Lovers On The Lam

    “We can make it. We can make it if we run,” whispers Ruth (Rooney Mara) in David Lowery’s “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints,” which, after a limited release on Friday, begins its expansion this week. It’s a film we loved at Sundance, and one that in its gentle subversion of the “Lovers on the Run” subgenre—...

    The Essentials: The 5 Best Tony Scott Films

    Something we've come to appreciate since the terrible news of the passing of director Tony Scott came in this morning, is that there's an argument to be made that almost any one of his films saw him at the top of his game.

The writer/director broke out with 2002's terrific, muscular cop thriller "Narc," but hasn't had a lot of joy since: his 2006 sub-Guy Ritchie action-comedy "Smokin' Aces" wasn't beloved by many, while a director-for-hire gig on the would-be-tentp...

    It seems that not even the Thanksgiving weekend can't stop either of the Scott brothers from attaching themselves to a project. This time around, it's Tony Scott and with comparisons being made to his previous films "Crimson Tide" and "Man On Fire," we guess we're not...
