Scene Four: Satiated by wine and cicchetti, it was time for dinner. We hopped on our speedboat and off we went.
Almost fifteen years after Titanic, with six Oscar nods and one win to her credit, Kate Winslet is an actress at the peak of her powers -- no longer a precocious ingénue, but a professional who's conscientiously developed her craft.
The world is full of bad ideas -- and the entertainment industry is no exception. It's also filled with people who don't recognize them as such.
A Prayer For The Planet, DJ Logic's latest album, is a collaboration with Jason Miles, his partner, and also Falguni Shah.
Francis Ford Coppola has owned the movie rights to Jack Kerouac's seminal novel On The Road for decades. He just seemed to be the kind of guy who would either make the movie "right" or he wouldn't make it at all.
Wonderland closed last month after playing its 33rd performance. That said, Kate Shindle notes the show had its loyal followers and she's extremely proud of the work she did.
It's too soon to predict that Bridesmaids will come close to the $175 million total of There's Something About Mary, but it's pretty much guaranteed that the funniest film of 2011 will make it to $100 million.
Allow me to describe Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in the kind of academically technical terms for which I'm famous. This movie sucks.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides breathes new life into the franchise not just with new characters, but with behind-the-scenes players as well, namely in the hiring of filmmaker Rob Marshall.
Rob Marshall's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is a weightless, thoughtless, undisciplined and juvenile bore. Unlike the first picture, it gives us no characters worth caring about and no story worth following.
While Prince William is on his honeymoon, moving forward with the next chapter of his life, 4,800 miles away there are those who are still looking back into the tragic events in his past.
The Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie romantic thriller is curiously mellow, if not downright sleepy. I blame Venice.
I'm mystified by the seemingly constant frenzy online about whether or not the Farrelly brothers' longstanding urge to make a Three Stooges movie will ever get off the ground. It's toxic-remake mania taken to an extreme.
There's something about traveling that changes cultural perspective, and with that in mind, I set out for two radically different cultural experiences last month.
The latest Depp venture, "Rango," is more suitable for adult Depp fans than kiddies, but that hasn't stopped parents from dragging their offspring in for the fun. Sadly for kiddies, there is very little to get excited about.
