Movie Review: 'Transformers: Age of Extinction'

transformers mark wahlberg

Crash. Shatter. Boom. Crash. Shatter. Boom. Smattering of silly dialogue. Pretty girl screams: "Dad!" Crash. Shatter. Boom. Silly dialogue. "DAD!!!" Crash. Shatter. Boom. What? Oh, sorry. We were falling into a trance there. Which is, dear moviegoer, what may happen to you during Michael Bay's "Transformers: Age of Extinction," the fourth Transformers film and, at 165 minutes, precariously close to the three-hour mark that Bay undoubtedly will reach — by our sophisticated calculations, and at the current growth rate, with his sixth installment. But let's not get ahead of ourselves. Despite what... more

Movie Review: ‘Begin Again’

begin again movie 2

LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Begin Again" sees Irish writer-director John Carney on a larger canvas, revisiting themes from his lo-fi 2006 indie hit "Once" — chief among them the emotional connectivity of music. Swapping Dublin for New York, and trading a single couple for a group of people all trying to mend broken bonds or forge new ones, the touching film again trades in uncynical heart-on-its-sleeve sentiment, and deploys a series of gentle ballads, a number of them performed by star Keira Knightley . With "Once," Carney tapped into every shoestring-budget filmmaker's dream. Shot in... more

Movie Review: 'They Came Together'

they came together paul rudd

David Wain's "They Came Together" identifies the tropes of the romantic comedy with uncommon acuity. If only it would stop winking so much. Wain has made his film with an enviable collection of funny people. It stars Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler as the intractably drawn together couple, and Wain wrote it with "Wet Hot American Summer" co-writer and fellow "The State" alum Michael Showalter . Nearly everyone in the movie, even in small roles filled by Ed Helms to Bill Hader , is a comic talent. Most if not all of the filmmakers and cast have themselves trafficked in that so-loved, so-loathed genre — i... more

Eli Wallach Had Onscreen Power

Some actors are too good for stardom. Eli Wallach , who died Tuesday at 98 after a long and distinguished career on stage and screen, was at the top of my list of the best actors I've encountered in the theater -- a striking fact given that I was born too late to have seen him in his heyday. But his intelligence as a dramatic player -- his power to illuminate a character at the service of a script -- was radioactive even in work that was inferior to his prodigious talent. His brilliance as a widower in "Visiting Mr. Green" elevated a lightweight off- Broadway drama to something u... more

North Korea's Take on New US Movie: 'Act of War'

the interview seth rogen james franco

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea is warning that the release of a new American comedy about a plot to assassinate leader Kim Jong Un would be an "act of war." If the U.S. government doesn't block the movie's release, it will face "stern" and "merciless" retaliation, an unidentified spokesman for North Korea's Foreign Ministry said in state media Wednesday. He didn't mention the movie by name but was clearly referring to "The Interview," which stars Seth Rogen and James Franco as a producer and talk-show host who land an exclusive interview with the North Korean dictato... more
