  • Movie Review: Traitor - 4 stars out of 5

    Movie Review: Traitor - 4 stars out of 5
    Traitor is a solid, gripping, only occasionally preachy thriller built around the War on Terror. Ripped-from-the-headlines realism, top-drawer performances by Don Cheadle and Guy Pearce, a dandy "ticking clock" story structure and a vast catalog of...
  • Movie review: 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' -- 4 out of 5 stars

    Movie review: 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' -- 4 out of 5 stars
    A great treachery is revealed, a great light is snuffed out and the final quest is set up in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, an emotional and involving installment in the hit-or-miss Harry movie series. It's a film of gloom, fear and dread -- and...
  • When it comes to characters, 'Harry' lures Britain's best

    When it comes to characters, 'Harry' lures Britain's best
    The answer is "Dame Judi Dench." The question? Name one British character actor of note who hasn't made an appearance/collected a check from the Harry Potter movies. With the news that the great Bill Nighy (Love, Actually, Underworld) will play Rufus...

    Sundance announces premieres and special screenings
    The Sundance Film Festival may occasionally take itself too seriously, but judging from the lineup of premieres and special screenings announced Thursday, the festival has no trouble poking fun at Hollywood. Several high-profile films set either in the...
  • High-Art Slasher Film? Must Be By Tim Burton

    Tim Burton had already traipsed through China, scouting locations for his next big cinematic event, "Ripley's Believe It or Not!" starring Jim Carrey, when Paramount halted preproduction on the film. Burton describes himself as "pretty devastated" by the...
  • Thanks to Depp, 'Todd' Retains Its Flavor Despite a Trim

    Thanks to Depp, 'Todd' Retains Its Flavor Despite a Trim
    It's not the volume of the blood that distinguishes "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" from every other film this year. The shocker is the context. Movie audiences aren't used to seeing throats slit while the leading character sings a song&#...
  • Chris Pine...Hollywood's latest hunk with a capital H

    Chris Pine...Hollywood's latest hunk with a capital H
    Do you recognize this long-haired dude? Like many of the other skeptics out there, I was really frightened about what Hollywood was doing going retro happy with this new Star Trek production. Could this franchise really be re-launched? But that's of no...
  • 'Todd' an obvious choice for Burton?

    'Todd' an obvious choice for Burton?
    You'd think you could get a rise out of Tim Burton by pigeonholing the guy, telling him that Stephen Sondheim's blood-spattered musical Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is the movie he was born to direct. But you can't. Maybe it's too...
  • 'The Spiderwick Chronicles'

    February 14, 2008 With character names like Hogsqueal, Mulgarath and Thimbletack, it's got to be derivative. So it's not altogether surprising that Mark Waters' ("Freaky Friday," "Mean Girls") adaptation of "The Spiderwick Chronicles" suffers slightly...
  • Oscar-Winning 'English Patient' Director Dies

    Acclaimed director Anthony Minghella, who adapted books such as "The English Patient," "Cold Mountain" and "The Talented Mr. Ripley" for the screen, has died. He was 54. The Oscar-winning director died Tuesday morning, March 18 in a London hospital of...
  • 'Predators' and Adrien Brody hunt for action-film credibility

     
    Patrick Goldstein at our sister blog, The Big Picture, was deeply puzzled by the news that Oscar winner Adrien Brody is taking on the lead role in "Predators," producer Robert Rodriguez's revisiting of the alien-hunter franchise. Here's an excerpt: The......
