• Dazzling 'Mad Max: Fury Road' is a Can't Miss Thrill

    2015
    It's in the silences that George Miller's singular genius becomes evident, and for good reason: It's the only time the film allows you to breathe.

Movie Review: Scary Movie 5

scary movie 5

LOS ANGELES - You have to at least give "Scary Movie 5" points for timeliness. This latest installment of the horror movie spoof franchise manages to deliver parodies of movies as recent as last week's "Evil Dead" remake, not to mention one that hasn't even been made yet ("Fifty Shades of Gray"). But those points are immediately subtracted by the fact that this Wayans-less installment doesn't manage to wrest a single laugh from any one of them. Directed by Malcolm D. Lee and co-written and produced by the venerable David Zucker ("Airplane," "The Naked Gun"), it demonstrates that the latter has definitely lost his comic mojo. The film, whi... more

China Pulls 'Django Unchained' on Day of Premiere

django china

BEIJING - The Hollywood film "Django Unchained" has been pulled from Chinese theaters on its opening day, despite weeks of promotion for director Quentin Tarantino's violent slave-revenge saga. Movie theaters throughout China said Thursday that they were ordered to suspend the film. Employees at two Beijing movie theaters say an order issued by the importer, China Film Group Corporation, cited an unspecified technical problem with the film. The employees would not give their full names. Calls to China Film Group and the government's film regulatory agency were unanswered. "Django Unchained" reportedly cut some violent scenes to pass Chi... more

Movie Review: Trance

trance 2

"Trance" superficially seems like a regulation crime thriller. The theft of a precious Goya painting from a London auction house sets off a lethal game of hide-and-seek. The early scenes with our chummy narrator Simon (James McAvoy), a junior executive who's clubbed in the head during the theft, suggest that's where things are going. But it's all misdirection. "Trance" is not a simple smash-and-grab yarn but an abstract psychological thriller. Moviegoers who expect a rote movie from British director Danny Boyle ("28 Days Later," "Slumdog Millionaire") will have the rug yanked from under them. Boyle is telling us a story of a perfect crime... more

Movie Review: 42

42 jackie robinson at bat

Jackie Robinson was the ideal class act to break the barrier and become the first black player in Major League Baseball. Writer-director Brian Helgeland's Robinson biopic "42" is a class act itself, though not always an engaging act. It's such a familiar story that any faithful film biography almost inevitably will turn out predictable, even a bit routine. With an earnest performance by Chadwick Boseman as Robinson and an enjoyably self-effacing turn by Harrison Ford as Brooklyn Dodgers boss Branch Rickey, "42" hits every button you expect very ably. It riles with its re-creations of the heartless, ignorant racism to which Robinson was s... more

Girl Next Door Annette Funicello Dies at 70

annette funicello

NEW YORK - She was the first crush for a generation of boys, the perfect playmate for a generation of girls. Annette Funicello, who became a child star as a cute-as-a-button Mouseketeer on "The Mickey Mouse Club" in the 1950s, ruled among baby boomers, who tuned in every weekday afternoon to watch her on their flickering black-and-white television sets. Then they shed their mouse ears, as Annette did when she teamed up with Frankie Avalon during the `60s in a string of frothy, fun-in-the-sun movies with titles like "Beach Blanket Bingo" and "How to Stuff a Wild Bikini." Decades later, she endeared herself to baby boomers all over again ... more
