Movie Review: ‘Maleficent’

maleficent 2

Maybe it's too soon to say the tide has shifted definitively. But it's certainly been a unique time for fairy-tale villains. After hundreds of years of moral clarity, suddenly we're getting a new look at these evil creatures, who are actually turning out to be complex beings, and not that bad at all. Really, they've just been misunderstood. (And, by the way, those charming princes? Highly overrated.) The most obvious recent example is "Frozen," the animated Disney blockbuster that showed us how the Snow Queen, long portrayed as an icy-hearted villain, was actually a tragic victim of circumstance,... more

Terry Crews Says Movie Messages Are Important

Terry Crews , a real-life father and step-father, says he could relate to the feel-good family story at the heart of his new big-screen comedy, Blended. In the film, Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore play single parents who go on a disastrous first date together, then grow closer when they end up sharing a vacation with their respective children in South Africa. Crews plays an outrageous entertainer at the resort where they stay. "I have a blended family. That's the big deal. My wife, when I met her, was a single mom and the baby was 6 to 8 months old and we ended up marrying ... more

maps to the stars cannes

CANNES, France (AP) — "Maps to the Stars" is David Cronenberg's nightmarish, hyper-real tale of vanity, greed and family dysfunction in Hollywood. But it may touch a raw nerve for some in the movie industry. With an all-star cast, including Julianne Moore , John Cusack and Robert Pattinson , the biting tragi-comedy, that premiered at Cannes Monday has critics guessing if it could produce, at long last, the veteran Canadian director's first Palme d'Or. It's the story of Benjie Weiss , a troubled child-star brat and recovering drug addict, who earns $300,000... more

CANNES, France (AP) — The director of the "The Artist" is following up his best-picture Oscar-winner with a gritty drama about the Chechen War. Michel Hazanavicius premiered "The Search" at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday, three years after his "The Artist" first debuted at the French Riviera festival. Cannes is where the black-and-white silent film ode became a sensation that carried through the Academy Awards. It was one of the most unlikely, out-of-the-blue successes in recent years, and Hazanavicius was met with virtually unlimited options for his next ... more

Movie Review: 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'

x men days of future past lawrence

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Matthew Vaughn and a superb cast reinvigorated the franchise with cool retro style and globe-trotting intrigue in 2011's "X-Men: First Class." The series' original director, Bryan Singer , continues that momentum in the vigorously entertaining "X-Men: Days of Future Past." While it's more dramatically diffuse than the reboot and lacks a definitive villain, the new film is shot through with a stirring reverence for the Marvel Comics characters and their universe. And it ups the stakes by threatening nothing less than the genocide of the mutant population, among t... more
