Oscar Isaac can't believe he got lead in the Coen brothers' ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’

Since graduating from Juilliard in 2005, Guatamalan-born and Miami-bred Oscar Isaac has been on a steady rise. With noticeable roles in films such as Robin Hood, Drive and The Bourne Legacy, Isaac has been proving his worth as a film actor with something extra.  That “something extra” has been fully realized with his breakthrough role as the title character in Joel and Ethan Coen’s tale of a struggling folk singer in the early...

The Delivery Man

In Vince Vaughn's latest lowbrow, high-concept comedy, the fast-talking firecracker from Swingers and Wedding Crashers looks exhausted. You get the sense from his red-rimmed eyes and lifeless patter that even he's tired of the junk he's been cranking out lately. An uninspired remake of the recent — and far better — Canadian import Starbuck, Delivery Man is the story of a Brooklyn screwup named David Wozniak, who years ago donated his... [read news]

'Doctor Who' turns 50 and fans' lives will never be the same

In 1996, John Reid Adams received a phone call that changed his life. His oldest brother wanted him to record the movie that was airing on Fox one Tuesday night. "I just did it to avoid a beating," Adams admitted. As the eighth-grader surfed the Internet, he continued to get distracted by the movie unfolding on TV. He saw a British police box from the 1950s -- actually a disguised spaceship known as a "TARDIS" -- on the screen. "This blue... [read news]

‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ ignites with more mature Jennifer Lawrence

The opening of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” finds its heroine, Katniss Everdeen, crouching uneasily at the edge of a lake, bow in hand, unsure of who and where her enemies are. Although she is supposedly safe in her home turf of District 12, the young woman is clearly haunted, a veteran of death. Director Francis Lawrence’s close-up style immediately thrusts the viewer into Katniss’ chaotic world. The first movie adaptation... [read news]

Spider-Man stage show will be 'better' in Las Vegas

The director of the Spider-Man musical says the Broadway show will be better suited to its new Las Vegas home. Michael Cohl, announcing the spectacle will close on 4 January after falling ticket sales, added it would be "more exciting and better" in Vegas. He said the decision to quit the New York stage came after a poor autumn, but an upturn is expected next month. Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark suffered delays to its opening in 2011, while...

'All Is Lost': Movie review

You can work to develop skill, but you either have innate talent or you don’t. Most people who saw J.C. Chandor’s sharp, fast-paced debut, 2011’s “Margin Call,” suspected he had it. Consider “All Is Lost” the confirmation. Chandor set himself a challenge from the outset, with this defiantly uncommercial premise: an anonymous man, about whom we know nearly nothing, is sailing solo in the Indian Ocean. Things go badly. He has to... [read news]

The Best Man Holiday and the Wisdom of Box Office Counterprogramming

Thor: The Dark World may have ultimately emerged on top, but the real story at the box office this past weekend was the surprising strength of a sequel without superpowers. The Best Man Holiday grossed an estimated $30.6 million from 2,024 theaters for an impressive $15,115 per-screen average—and it actually beat Thor on Friday, taking $10.7 million to the Norse god’s $10.5 million. Those are excellent numbers by any measure. The film... [read news]
