A Blame-India Movie Wows Pakistanis But Irks Some

waar movie

ISLAMABAD - "Waar" seems ordinary enough as an action movie - Pakistani forces fighting terrorism, a James Bond-like character hunting an assassin, a woman ensnaring a patriot with her sexual wiles. But the Pakistani-made film playing to packed houses these days has some critics worried because it suggests that the country's terrorism problem is not homegrown, but a sinister plot by outside enemies, particularly long-term adversary India. The film opened four weeks ago and for a time was playing on all screens at many multiplexes. It will likely be the year's top grosser. Its action sequences and cinematography stand out and should give ... more

‘Hurt Locker' Actor Anthony Mackie Arrested on DUI

anthony mackie hurt locker

Actor Anthony Mackie, whose movie credits include "8 Mile," "We Are Marshall" and "The Hurt Locker," was arrested for drunken driving in New York, police said. Law enforcement officials said he was arrested early Saturday when he was pulled over for tinted windows on his vehicle, celebrity website TMZ reported. Officials said when they approached the vehicle, police noticed Mackie had bloodshot, watery eyes and smelled of liquor on his breath, the New York Daily News reported. Police said Mackie failed several field sobriety tests then was cuffed and taken to a nearby police station. TMZ said the actor refused to submit to a blood-alcoh... more

‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ Gets Dec. 2015 Release

star wars legacy

NEW YORK - For the first time in the franchise's history, a "Star Wars" film won't be released in the summer. Walt Disney Studios announced Thursday that "Star Wars: Episode VII" will open in theaters on Dec. 18, 2015. The original 1977 film helped set the precedent of the summer blockbuster. But this latest installation in George Lucas' space opera will be a holiday season affair. The project recently shuffled screenwriters, worrying much of the "Star Wars" fan universe. Screenwriter Michael Arndt exited, with director J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan taking over the script. Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn said the December date ... more

Movie Review: 'Thor: The Dark World'

thor the dark world

Any reservations I had about "Thor: The Dark World" evaporated when the movie shifted into maximum overdrive in its second hour. The latest chapter in Marvel's never-ending story takes a while to find its narrative momentum, but its later, better scenes have a loony oomph that drowns out your misgivings. It elevates comic-book pandemonium to new heights of clamor. Joyous Pop Art excess permeates every frame. Directing duties have passed from Kenneth Branagh to Alan Taylor, late of HBO's medieval-mystical "Game of Thrones." The sequel builds on the alchemy of apocalyptic tomfoolery and humor in the original (and "The Avengers"). First it's... more

Movie Review: ‘Ender’s Game'

enders game training

LOS ANGELES - An anti-bullying allegory writ on the largest possible scale, "Ender's Game" frames an interstellar battle between mankind and pushy ant-like aliens, called Formics, in which Earth's fate hinges on a tiny group of military cadets, most of whom haven't even hit puberty yet. At face value, the film presents an electrifying star-wars scenario - that rare case where an epic space battle transpires entirely within the span of two hours - while at the same time managing to deliver a higher pedagogical message about tolerance, empathy and coping under pressure. Against considerable odds, this risky-sounding Orson Scott Card adaptati... more
