    Oscar Watch: Rockwell Nails Conviction Role

    Sometimes, there comes a moment in a working actor's life where just the right role suddenly galvanizes awards attention.

    Trailer Watch: Will Voyage of the Dawn Treader Be the Best Narnia?

    I am not a fan of the Chronicles of Narnia movies. Walden Media's $180 million The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe was a huge global hit ($748 million) while the $225 million Prince Caspian, based on the weakest book in the series, was a relative disappointment that did well enough overseas ($419.5 million worldwide) to warrant a sequel. From age nine, I reread the C.S. Lewis Narnia books avidly, none more often than The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, which is the best page-turning adventure tale of the lot, complete with seafaring travels, dragon, flamboyant talking mouse Reepicheep, the spirituality of the godly lion Aslan and of course a voya...

    If you don't know who Emma Stone is, get thee to a showing of Will Gluck's witty high school comedy Easy A (trailer below), one of those easy-to-digest teen flicks that's delectably smart and high concept enough to play across a wide demo. (That's hard to pull off.) The ingredient that makes it magi...
