Pirate films have always been popular and perhaps a few more films are still to be made, but until that point we have a virtual treasure trove of films to satisfy us.
What can Amber Heard expect from Depp after a divorce, three engagements, and a long term relationship that produced two children without resulting in marriage? Will she be the one to break the serial engagement spell?
Christian Bale is a nominee for an Oscar for his role in American Hustle, but Illinois may want to appreciate him more for his roles in Public Enemies and The Dark Knight.
Pirate-mania is all the rage these days. Luckily for us, there is a virtual treasure trove of pirate books. Here are some classic tales of piracy to keep your ship afloat.
"Dodgson himself wrote that he imagined his work as musical theater -- an "operetta"." - Gary Bachlund Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska are schedul...
It would seem Depp -- once known as one of Hollywood's go-to weirdos, and a marketable one who became a heartthrob and box-office superstar -- has traded places with McConaughey, a former laughing stock of all things critically acclaimed.
I kind of miss the monsters. Seeing DeNiro today make one silly comedy after another is more depressing than seeing him play a villain.
The SyFy channel calls Virginia City, Nevada one of America's most haunted towns. Lining its wood-paneled sidewalks are allegedly haunted houses and the professional ghost-hunters who roam their historic halls.
When Alexander Payne stepped off the boat in late July to arrive on the Greek isle of Patmos, few locals recognized a major Hollywood writer-director in their midst -- or had a chance to see his films on the silver screen.
There's a thriving scene for historical and contemporary sea music, with festivals all over. Here in the U.S., the premiere festival is at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut, and last month my band Ocean Celtic was lucky enough to play there and meet many of the great sea music performers.
Lots to listen for in the latest MovieFilm show! After listening to the audio from my exclusive interview with directors Jim Rash & Nat Faxon about their lovely new film The Way Way Back.
Was The Lone Ranger doomed by early (and correct) reports that the film is unusually violent for a PG-13 movie, especially one aimed at kids and families? And is the character of Tonto finally allowed to rise above the role of sidekick and noble savage?
Johnny Depp made a name for himself by playing eccentric characters, each more interesting than the last. Lately he's exchanged that legacy for one that's saturated in populist fare and dull executions. What happened to the old Johnny Depp?
This is not your father's Lone Ranger and this is not your father's Disney family film offering.
For the life of me, I just can't figure out whom this movie is for, which is why I find it so fascinating. Before I saw the movie, I just assumed it would be for kids. It is not for kids. (At my screening, I witnessed wary adults lead a mass exodus of children after the villain slices out the heart of a still living human being, then takes a bite.)
The timing couldn't be more ironic, or telling, about how we choose as a nation to frame Native America. It is so much easier to add our $12 to the coffers of Disney and Depp in order to enter the debate about our fantastical American history.
