With the horror comedy "Rapture-Palooza" hitting theaters and on demand this Friday, June 7, we spokewith the hilarious Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel, ...
I'm clearly not a movie buff, nor a Broadway aficionado. But I do consider myself to be somewhat of an authority on things that inspire women -- and she fits the bill ridiculously well.
Film: The Company You Keep (2012) Cast includes: Robert Redford (Spy Game), Shia LaBeouf (Transformers), Julie Christie (Finding Neverland), Susan Sar...
While The Company You Keep can't sustain itself as the kind of thriller it's being pitched as, it's still a thoughtful, provocative story about the continuing battle between idealism and cynicism.
How do I feel about the movie being released in light of my novel -- AcaPolitics -- which came out just under a year ago?
While the whole 'measure the cumulative weekend box office' trend is usually stupid if not dangerous, I must admit that this is indeed an 'everybody wins' weekend. Sony had the top two films, with one setting a record and the other merely opening in line with realistic expectations.

The movie follows an all-female a capella group at the fictional Barden University (a thinly veiled LSU) on its quest for glory and soaring notes, all the way to an eventual showdown with a rival all-male group -- full of hot and mysteriously attractive jerks, of course.
The film 50/50 is about a man facing cancer, but this is not your standard terminal illness/embrace life tearjerker.
50/50 no doubt will be dismissed by critics who distrust movies that deal with feelings, rather than ideas. But it proves that it's possible to be emotional and thoughtful -- and funny -- at the same time.
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 32, I was the youngest person in the oncologist's office -- by decades.
As the ardor cools for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, it's easy to forget all the humans except that most desired one -- Kristen Stewart's Bella. And then there's actress Christian Serratos's bespectacled Angela Webber.
This year's Oscar producers, Adam Shankman and Bil Mechanic, were so dedicated to the quixotic task of luring in young viewers, that we were given a show full of presenters that appeared to have gone through puberty during the rehearsals.
