Movie Review: ‘Blended’

blended drew barrymore adam sandler

To say that the new Adam Sandler movie, "Blended," is better than some of his other recent work — "Jack and Jill," for example — isn't saying much. After all, some natural disasters cause less damage than others. But none are a positive development. OK, that's overly harsh to "Blended" — though not to "Jack and Jill." But please understand the frustration. Some of us are old enough to recall a time when Sandler made movies that were authentically funny, and didn't merely earn laughs by reminding people of their most puerile instincts. We also remember acting work by Sandler that deserved real ad... more

Movie Review: ‘The Immigrant’

the immigrant movie

Floating in past a misty Statue of Liberty,  James Gray's "The Immigrant" somberly gathers its majesty as a metaphor-rich story of passage and survival. It's an old tale told with rare precision, channeling grand themes into an intimate melodrama. Ellis Island, a portal of hope and new beginning for films from Elia Kazan's "America, America" to Francis Ford Coppola's "The Godfather, Part II," is here a more complicated rebirth. In 1921, Ewa (Marion Cotillard) arrives from Poland with her sister, Magda ( Angela Sarafyan ). A cough gets Magda quarantined and immigration officials are set to turn away Ew... more

CANNES, France (AP) — Featuring a startlingly dramatic turn from Steve Carell , Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" premiered Monday at the Cannes Film Festival to largely rave reviews and early Oscar predictions. "Foxcatcher" is based on the true story of Olympic gold medalist wrestler Mark Schultz ( Channing Tatum ). To step out from the shadow of his brother and fellow Olympian, Dave ( Mark Ruffalo ), Schultz moves into a wealthy benefactor's Pennsylvania estate and training facility, Foxcatcher Farm. His relationship with millionaire John du Pont, whom Carell plays with a prosthetic nos... more

Bryan Cranston Almost Turned Down 'Godzilla' Role

NEW YORK (AP) — Bryan Cranston says he's excited to be part of "Godzilla 2014" but almost turned down the role because he was still working on "Breaking Bad" and thought he had to follow with "something serious." In a recent interview about the film, which opened Friday, Cranston said he was worried that people might compare the two roles and say, "Oh, that's not anywhere near as good as 'Breaking Bad.'" "I didn't want to have that conversation," the actor added Cranston, who's currently playing President Lyndon B. Johnson in the Broadway play "All the Way," says he read the "G... more

Movie Review: ‘Godzilla’

godzilla 2014

Most Hollywood action movies cram in so much death and destruction that there isn't much room for character or plot development. If you watched the "Godzilla" trailers expecting it to tread the same path, you'll be happily disappointed with the result. "Godzilla" sets itself apart with good pacing, crisp action, and strong visual intelligence. But, the plot, characters, and a few cinematographic quirks knock it down a few steps from amazing. The plot of "Godzilla" is unengaging and does a poor job of creating tension. From start to finish, the humans seem ancillary to the ancient, enormous animals duking it out. It could be argued ... more
