    More Than Just Funny: How Women Took Comedy by the Balls

    On a weekend in which the multiplex was mainly a man’s world, Matt Brennan's "Now and Then" column this week focuses on news from the small screen. With Bridesmaids now available on DVD and a flurry of funny women hitting network TV, he got to wondering: are we in a golden age of women in comedy? Trailers below:I know. You already have seven problems with this column and all you’ve read is the teaser. So let’s slow down and lay out some of the assumptions I’m working with here: first, that women are funny, and not only to other women, despite what Christopher Hitchens might have to say on the subject; and second, that I recognize there are pr...

    First Look: HBO's Luck a Good Bet with Mann, Milch, Hoffman, Allen, Gambon & Nolte on Their Team

    Game of Thrones, Season Two Teaser: Full of Terrors, Not Footage

    Don't hold your breath; the premiere date for HBO's Game of Thrones season two hasn't been set. But the cast and crew have been shooting since late July and the "Battle of the Blackwater," as chronicled in the novels, is expected to take arms by episode nine.

    Weekend Preview: Testosterone Rules Box Office with Moneyball, Killer Elite, Machine Gun Preacher

    There's a lot of testosterone at the box office this weekend. The subtle kind: Brad Pitt's heartfelt sports drama Moneyball. The less subtle kind: Killer Elite and The Badass Gerard Butler Show (aka Machine Gun Preacher). The subversive kind: Andrew Haigh's exceptionally reviewed gay romance Weekend...

    Trailer Watch: Long-form Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: Looks Good, Lacks Edge

    David Fincher's long form trailer for December 21's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is here, and it's a testament to just how good the teaser trailer is (also below). In this case, less is more, with emphasis on how instead of what. The new trailer reveals practically the entire plot (which many of us know well by now, anyway), as well as Rooney Mara's Swedish accent and her lack of Noomi Rapace intensity. Sure, she looks the part, but we're still on the fence. We aren't as impressed as ThePlaylist, but it does look significantly more polished than the Swedish version of the novel. We can't wait to experience this feel bad movie of Christmas ...

    Weekend Preview: Gosling's Drive is the Must-See; Happy, Happy, Silent Souls, Restless & More

    It takes a special movie to make you envy a toothpick, but ladies, Drive is that movie. The almost-too-cool-for-school film from director Nicolas Winding Refn is a thrilling throw-back to heart-pounding eighties fun and ferocity, with a de-glammed Los Angeles at its core. You'll want the soundtrack,...

    TIFF: Moverman Talks Rampart, Harrelson, Ellroy, Cops, Bungee Cameras, Independence

    One of the best films I saw at Toronto--and I suspected it going in from the trailer--was Rampart, Oren Moverman's follow-up to his Oscar-nominated The Messenger. Here's our full Q & A on how Rampart came into being and why Israeli Moverman is one of the most exciting filmmakers wor...
