    What Went Wrong With Tamara Drewe?

    Something went terribly wrong with Tamara Drewe, an entertaining romantic comedy that played well at Cannes from one of the great Brit directors, Stephen Frears, starring hottie-on-the-rise Gemma Arterton. Sony Pictures Classics opened it last weekend to disastrous business: $19,300 on four screens,...

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

    I am not a fan of the Chronicles of Narnia movies.

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...

    Easy A Star Emma Stone Lands Spider-Man Lead as Gwen Stacy

    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...
