    2015
    The decent but unremarkable caper comedy "Focus" is the kind of movie you see with some pleasure but no dreams of sequels or remakes.

  • Julianne Moore Invigorates Dark, Messy 'Maps to the Stars'

    2015
    "Maps to the Stars" is such a deliriously perfect title for a Hollywood send-up that it's amazing it hasn't been used in that form before.

Super Bowl Turns Into 'Draft Day' Before Big Game

draft day movie press conference costner

NEW YORK - It wasn't the raucous NFL draft, but it was Hollywood's next best thing when Kevin Costner, Jennifer Garner, Denis Leary and director Ivan Reitman gathered Friday just down a hotel hallway from the Super Bowl's media center to chat up their new movie "Draft Day," made with the full support of the league itself. Costner, an avid grid iron fan who's better known for his baseball movies, plays the general manager of the Cleveland Browns as he races the clock to acquire the No. 1 draft pick. Reitman and his cast shot at the real draft last year, held over three days at Radio City Music Hall, and included a cameo with the man himse... more

Gaza's 2nd Feature Film Revisits Resistance Theme

gaza movies

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Gaza's tiny movie industry may struggle with amateur actors and power outages, but at least it has a winning formula of which the producers never seem to tire: the heroics, from a Palestinian perspective, of those fighting Israeli occupation. "Losing Schalit" will be the second feature-length film made in the blockaded territory since 2009. It's the first of a planned three-part series about the 2006 capture of Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit by gunmen allied with the Islamic militant Hamas movement. It's currently in production and parts two and three will depict Schalit's time in captivity and his 2011 swap for hun... more

Philip Seymour Hoffman Found Dead in NYC Apartment

NEW YORK - Philip Seymour Hoffman, who won the Oscar for best actor in 2006 for his portrayal of writer Truman Capote and created a gallery of other vivid characters, many of them slovenly and somewhat dissipated, was found dead Sunday in his apartment with what officials said was a needle in his arm. He was 46. Two law enforcement officials, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about the evidence, said the actor apparently died of a drug overdose. Glassine envelopes containing what was believed to be heroin were found with him, they said. Hoffman - no matinee idol, with his... more

Movie Review: ‘Labor Day’

labor day brolin winslet

If you've seen the trailer for "Labor Day," Jason Reitman's film based on the novel by Joyce Maynard, then you've caught a glimpse of a new breakout star, who threatens to upstage even the estimable Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin. No, we're not talking about young newcomer Gattlin Griffith, though he gives a lovely performance. We're talking about the peach pie. Seldom has a baked good assumed so prominent an onscreen role as in this film, where it serves both as catalyst and as metaphor, for, um, sex. Plenty of movies have displayed food worshipfully, but this scene more aptly recalls that moist clay on the potter's wheel in "Ghost," whe... more

Movie Review: ‘That Awkward Moment’

that awkward moment

As Zac Efron tears up and professes his love to a pert blonde who gave it up on the first night, it's clear the story line of romantic comedy "That Awkward Moment" has gone too far. This is not because Efron's leading lady isn't captivating or that a fella can't fall in love swiftly. But this revelatory moment required a compelling buildup - and an actor who could carry it out believably. For his first film, writer-director Tom Gormican attempts a chick flick from a male point of view. But unlike successful films of this kind, such as "High Fidelity," "Awkward Moment" unfolds like a college thesis with a big budget. Jason (Efron) is a M... more
