This year's Gotham Awards, the indie film world's Academy Awards, were marked by a giant jump in etiquette. Unlike last year, the guests at the packe...
At this point, it seems pretty pointless to review a new entry in The Hunger Games series.
The costumes and sets are inventive, but, again, bleak and lacking in any color. And while, granted, this is not a remake of The Sound of Music, I longed for relief from the extended suffering.
Radiant in black taffeta on Guild Hall's stage after the movie Still Alice screened, Julianne Moore said the way you play a woman with degenerating ea...
David Cronenberg turns horror to comedy in his latest feature Maps to the Stars, based on fiction by Bruce Wagner. Hollywood is known more for its sup...
Get used to hearing the title The Imitation Game because, between the filmmaking of Morten Tyldum and the acting of Benedict Cumberbatch, this is the film they'll be talking about at the end of the year.
When critics talk about the heyday of American filmmaking in the 1970's, director Robert Altman was not only a part of that flourishing, he was at the...
You're familiar with Emilia McCarthy's work as fraternal twin Alyssa Sworn on Season 1's Netflix's Hemlock Grove. This Ontario native started in show business at 8 years old as Cate Blanchett's daughter in the film Babel.

Neeson is still interesting in a grungy sort of way, but this time out he doesn't manage to get inside the head or the heart of his character. You are rooting for him most of the time but not with the same enthusiasm you have had in other movies.
In Non-Stop (or, as I call it, "Liam Neeson Action Movie 2014"), Neeson stars as air marshal Bill Marks, a harried, hard-drinking behemoth of a man who also (of course) happens to hate flying.
