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.
If you crossed a disaster film from the 1970s with a low-budget action-thriller from the last five years, you'd get something that looks like Non-Stop.
This Turkey Day happens to land on a criminally and perennially underappreciated actor's birthday: Ed Harris. Main course or side dish, first billing or second fiddle, Ed Harris is a truly gifted actor deserving of more recognition. So let's give it to him.
Carrie has been remade, prompting many to ask why anyone would bother remaking a film that's still referenced today and is widely considered to be a horror classic. But here's the thing -- I don't really care about that since I've never seen the original Carrie.
Poor, unfortunate 2013 Carrie. Under other circumstances, we'd be able to look kindly on this new adaptation of the Stephen King novel. Only one, little thing stands in the way: 1976 Carrie, Brian De Palma's masterful adaptation.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been working regularly on stage and screen since the tender age of four, amassing a list of credits during his three decades in Hollywood that would be impressive at any age.
If you've seen ads for Don Jon that make it seem like a fairly standard romantic comedy, it might surprise you. But that's because Don Jon often feels and often looks like two kinds of movies awkwardly mashed together.
Don Jon is a winner, a bold, provocative and funny tale of the ultimate self-obsession -- a man with an addiction to pornography who doesn't view himself as an addict.
As for Priebus, he should stop whining like a 12-year-old about what the so-called liberal media does or doesn't do for Hillary Clinton. Let him call Rupert Murdoch and ask Fox Television to make all the movies they want about the Republican candidates.
Last week's Supreme Court one-two punch -- Gee, black folks, aren't you over that racism thing yet? Hey, gays, I guess you're kind of like real people...
Divorce is common enough these days that people are familiar with what an ugly and painful process it can be, which probably explains why most people wouldn't rush to see a movie about it in their free time
I have been to the Cannes Film Festival many times. So, when I heard of the heist of jewels, worth $1.4-million, I nodded as if to say to myself, "I could easily see that happening."
I often note how difficult it is to create a comedy that's not only smart and funny but also charming and surprising. But first-time director Craig Zisk, a TV veteran, has done that with The English Teacher.
Film: What Maisie Knew (2012) Cast includes: Julianne Moore (Crazy, Stupid, Love.), Steve Coogan (24 Hour Party People), Alexander Skarsgard (True Blo...
Onata Aprile is at the center of the film as Maisie, in an almost eerily natural, watchful performance. She always seems to be in the camera's focus, while the marital squabbles and romantic entanglements explode in the background.
