'Restrepo' Documentarian Returns With 'Korengal'

korengal movie 2

Associated Press | May 30, 2014

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sebastian Junger wants 84 minutes of moviegoers' time, especially civilian moviegoers. In "Korengal," the filmmaker employs that amount of footage unused in his 2010 Afghanistan war documentary "Restrepo" to paint a psychological portrait of soldiers, not to re-chronicle the conflict cunningly captured in the Oscar-nominated original. "I really thought of it an inquiry," said Junger, a journalist and author. "'Restrepo' wasn't an inquiry. 'Korengal' is an inquiry into the experience of war and how it affects people. Civilians really need to understand the experience. We sent... more

Movie Review: ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’

million ways to die in the west

Associated Press | May 30, 2014

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Seth MacFarlane might've picked a safer place to make his lead-acting debut than "A Million Ways to Die in the West," his directorial follow-up to 2012's surprisingly successful "Ted." The marketplace doesn't seem to be crying out for Westerns, after all — be they earnest revivals, satires, or genre hybrids involving extra-terrestrials — and the undeniably of-his-moment MacFarlane is, as the script indirectly admits, a strange fit for the genre. Stocking the supporting cast with top-drawer talent, he gives most of his co-stars little to do besides attract our atte... more

Movie Review: ‘Maleficent’

maleficent 2

Associated Press | May 30, 2014

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

United Press International | May 27, 2014

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

Cronenberg's Nightmarish, All-Star Hollywood Tale

maps to the stars cannes

Associated Press | May 27, 2014

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
