  • Movie violence often paired with 'risky' behaviors like drinking, sex

    Movie violence often paired with 'risky' behaviors like drinking, sex
    Violence isn’t the only problem with violent movies aimed at younger audiences — they also tend to glamorize risky activities you might not want to encourage among kids, according to a new study. “We know some teenagers imitate what...
  • 'James Bond Effect' Cited in Study on Movie Violence

    Violence and risky behavior are permeating Hollywood's most successful movies and bringing a message to young people that violence is acceptable, this according to a new study by the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania. The...
  • Review: 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' ★★★

    Review: 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' ★★★
    One year and several hundred films later, I confess my mind isn't over-full of vivid memories of director Peter Jackson's first "Hobbit." It did the job, in its leisurely, fill-out-the-trilogy fashion, albeit looking like clinically detailed crud when...
  • A Year After Newtown Shootings, Hollywood Resists Scrutiny of Media Violence

    When President Obama spoke on the campus of DreamWorks Animation last month, his only note of admonishment to Hollywood came when he mentioned gun violence, in which he said that "we have got to make sure we are not glorifying it." He mentioned that in...
  • In Theory: Taking a stab at PG-13 violence

  • Cameron Diaz, Fox win ratings appeal for 'The Other Woman'

    They say if you want something done right, do it yourself. That approach just worked for Cameron Diaz, who represented her upcoming movie "The Other Woman" and successfully appealed the MPAA's Classification and Rating Appeals Board to overturn its...
  • The Oscars for families

    Young children tend to live in suspended animation regarding Oscar-nominated films — as in, if it's not “Frozen,” “Despicable Me 2” or “The Croods,” it's not on their screen. For parents interested in...
  • REVIEW: 'Pompeii' ★★

    REVIEW: 'Pompeii' ★&#9733
    "Pompeii" is half sword-and-sandal epic, half disaster movie and all guilty pleasure. Director Paul W.S. Anderson, taking a break from cranking out "Resident Evil" movies, has a strong command of CGI technology and 3-D effects, and the movie is so grand...
  • REVIEW: 'RoboCop' ★★★

    REVIEW: 'RoboCop' ★★&#9733
    Intriguingly ambiguous in its rooting interests, the "RoboCop" remake doesn't really believe its own poster. The tagline "Crime has a new enemy" suggests little more than point and shoot — the same old cyborg song and dance. While nobody'd be dumb...
  • 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' aims for big Memorial Day weekend

    A team of mutant heroes may claw its way to the biggest box-office opening of the year this weekend. Director Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" could gross more than $100 million in ticket sales from the United States and Canada through...
  • Box Office: 'Neighbors' Proves R-Rated Comedies Are Summertime Gold

    Raunch sells. Case in point: Universal's "Neighbors," the dirty-minded comedy starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron that debuted to a glittering $49 million domestically this past weekend. "It's escapism, and when it works -- and 'Neighbors' worked --...
