  • Liam’s back in paranoid action in “Unknown”

     
    This looks like a fitting companion piece for Liam Neeson's comeback film — “Taken.” Yeah, he's made a few movies since then, but this Euro-thriller about a guy who wakes from a coma and finds his identity has been hijacked, feels...
  • Movie Review: Flipped

     
    She's mad about the boy. But boys being boys, he doesn't share her enthusiasm. Not at first. She's a tween stalker, if they'd used that word for needy, pushy, too-interested suitors back in the early '60s. But she has a quality that makes them seem...
  • Can Facebook give “Flipped” the boost it needs?

     
    As I mentioned last week, “Flipped,” the new Rob Reiner movie, finally got a limited release (a few cities this weekend), and after seeing it, I could see why Warner Brothers was struggling to figure out how to sell it. It's a gem of a movie,...
  • Sam Shepard recalls his go-to actor, James Gammon, who died Friday at 70

  • Movie Review: Jonah Hex

     
    Jonah Hex reminds us of how cool Josh Brolin looks on a horse, how at home he seems with a six-shooter, and how perfect his growl is for a laconic, cowboy bounty hunter one-liner. “Five coffins,” he counts, Eastwood-style, to some double-...
  • Rob Reiner's 'Flipped': A return to the glory days of 'Stand by Me'

     
    It's no secret that Hollywood is obsessed with '80's nostalgia. After all, we've already seen the decade reenacted in "Hot Tub Time Machine" and re-envisioned through remakes of "The A Team" and "The Karate Kid," with the prospect of a......

    TV Review: 'Canterbury's Law'
    After mastering the mixture of character drama and procedural hijinx on shows like "House" and "Bones," FOX has fallen into a bit of a rut. The fall saw the speedy failure of "K-Ville," a drama that wasted fantastic location work and a solid cast in a...
  • Stratford-on-the-lake? This is suddenly a Shakespeare town

    Ever since the first Chicago production of "Hamlet" in 1839, there's been a place here for William Shakespeare. You could see "Othello" at the McVicker's Theatre on West Madison Street as early as 1858. The St. Nicholas Players did "A Midsummer Night's...
  • Pilots: Aidan Quinn Drives to 'Motor City'

    ABC's pilot "Prince of Motor City" is a drama co-written by a sitcom actor, loosely inspired by "Hamlet" and set in Detroit's auto industry. It's also attracting one of the deeper casts of any show in development this season. The latest additions to the...
