Snow White and the Huntsman is a failure both as a reinvention and a movie. It earns points for production value, Theron and Hemsworths' respective star turns, and for a promising initial reel that makes promises the film can't keep. But it goes nowhere.
Stewart's version of an empowered and proactive Snow White doesn't spend a moment cooking, cleaning and keeping house for a bunch of dwarves. Neither does she keep letting an old woman give her a poisoned apple that she stupidly eats.
For a movie based on a fairy tale, Snow White and the Huntsman is kind of grim -- or is that Grimm?
Victoria's Secret came out with their annual "Wha...
The notion of "Sexy Hair" has as many facets as a diamond. It could mean the freedom of movement, tone of color, shine, or the angle of a great cut. If you were to pick up any magazine with a premise of "Sexy Hair," all of these elements would be obvious.
If you haven't had a chance to check out Top Chef this season, you seriously need to. Not because of the cheftestants' popularity -- what makes this show's ninth season the best one has nothing to do with who's competing.
I'm going to make an outrageous Oscars prediction, and it has nothing to do with the winners. When the 89th annual Academy Awards air, the most coveted viewership demographic will be watching anything but the Hollywood awards show.
Young Adult is clearly set up as award bait for Charlize Theron, who gets the chance to be unlikable in almost every way.
This Sunday's Golden Globes Awards kick off Hollywood's lengthy awards show season, or in fashion terms, the playoffs.
After taking a sabbatical for three years ("I was happily busy doing other creative things"), Charlize Theron is back in a stunning new movie, Young Adult, and I am delighted to report that it is a real winner in every respect.
Bless screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman their twisted, little hearts. Young Adult isn't season-specific, but it does serve as a healthy counterbalance to all that holiday growth and belonging.
The previews of Young Adult suggested a light rom-com. I was in no way prepared for what I got.
People in Minnesota have this reputation for being "nice" that Diablo Cody seems determined to undermine -- which she does in slashingly funny style in Jason Reitman's Young Adult.
Young Adult is a surprisingly potent and insightful dramedy, all the more effective for its understated nature and its off-the-cuff black comedy construction.
Loosey-goosey and festive, the event not only kicks off awards season -- its awards are often a bellwether for bigger trophies down the pike come Oscar night.
It is hard to feel sorry for Charlize Theron. The Academy Award-winning actress, for the role of Aileen Wuomos in Monster when she was famously puffed up and made up to emphasize the serial killer's tough look, is in fact very pretty, like the most popular girl in your high school.
