  • Lake Bell's 'In a World ...' Should Figure in Awards Race

    The business of voice-over is so fascinating and ripe for expose, it's surprising no one has tackled it before -- it seems like prime material for a Christopher Guest parody. So it was up to first-time feature writer-director Lake Bell, best known as an...
  • TV Review: 'Mob City'

    Great-looking but dramatically flaccid, "Mob City" mines the same territory as "L.A. Confidential" and James Ellroy's noir thrillers, with hollow results. Loosely adapted by writer-director Frank Darabont from the nonfiction book "L.A. Noir," this...
  • TV review: 'Mob City' mines noir cliches to death

    TV review: 'Mob City' mines noir cliches to death
    Frank Darabont turned his love of old horror films into the hugely successful zombie thriller "The Walking Dead" before parting ways with AMC. In "Mob City" (8 p.m. CST Dec. 4, TNT; 1.5 stars out of 4) he shares his enthusiasm for film noir, but with...

    DVD Review: See 'The World's End' before it's too late
    The year is almost over, and my favorite film so far is Edgar Wright's “The World's End,” his third feature collaboration with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. When it came out, I mentioned how much I looked forward to the home video release,...

     'Mob City' on TNT fills a TV noir niche nicely
    Frank Darabont, whose last stab at television brought forth AMC's "The Walking Dead," from which he later departed under still-murky circumstances, has created a new series, "Mob City," for TNT. It is also, in its way, about the living dead, reviving as...

    'Mob City' recap: LAPD detective kills for love, not money
    There are many reasons to kill a man, such as for money or revenge, observes L.A. police Det. Joe Teague (Jon Bernthal). But Joe kills for love -- love for his sexy ex-wife Jasmine Fontaine (Alexa Davales), a good girl apparently gone bad. Killing for...
  • Inside the L.A. Film Critics' Vote: 'Gravity,' 'Her' and the Ties That Bind

    The Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. has seen more than a few tie victories in recent years: The very first time I voted, in 2006, there was a lead-actor split between Forest Whitaker and Sacha Baron Cohen. In 2010, we awarded best director to David Fincher...
  • Simon Pegg Joins Cast of Terry Jones' 'Absolutely Anything'

    LONDON -- Simon Pegg will lead the Terry Jones helmed comedy pic "Absolutely Anything." Pegg will play Neil Clarke, a disillusioned school teacher who suddenly finds he has magical powers, bestowed upon him by some aliens. The aliens will be voiced by...
  • Justin Chang's Top 10 Films of 2013

    If James Franco's "Look at my shee-yit!" scene in "Spring Breakers" was one of 2013′s funniest movie moments, it was also perhaps the most emblematic of a year that, as many others have pointed out, was all but overrun by spectacles of consumerist...
  • Critics Choice Awards: '12 Years,' 'American Hustle' Earn 13 Nominations Each

    With "12 Years a Slave" and "American Hustle" leading the pack (13 bids each), plenty of films have reason to celebrate their nominations from the Critics' Choice Movie Awards, because it's one of the more reliable Oscar gauges around. The best pic...
