Insurgent is a relentlessly exasperating sci-fi film made, miraculously, with a half-baked imagination, a slaughtered wit, and insufferable direction by Robert Schwentke, the man who supplied 2013 with one its biggest flops, R.I.P.D.
I knew this day would come: the end of TIFF'14. It's so bittersweet. But it's been another successful fest with great films, dazzling stars and an excellent street party for the first time. But before we roll up the red carpet and put away the barricades, let's have one more quick chat about some of the films I've seen over these last couple of days and about the closing night gala.
Entitlement is also an issue in Noah Baumbach's wonderfully acidic While We're Young, which captures a pair of Gen-Xers, Josh and Cornelia (Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts), at a crisis point.

After To Die For, I was ready to believe I could never again be so lucky. Then Jason Reitman - director of Up in the Air, Juno, Thank You for Smoking and Young Adult - called to tell me he loved my novel, Labor Day, and wanted to adapt it for the screen. I loved Jason's films, and said yes.
Maybe there's enough dystopian teen book/movie money to go around, but not for a movie as nonsensical, poorly written, and dull as Divergent, which clocks in at a punishing, baffling 140 minutes.

February 14 was a significant date in the film calendar and it had nothing do with romance. To be eligible for the BAFTAs, films had to be released by this date, meaning all the big awards films for 2014 are either in cinemas now, or have already been and gone...

It's easy to assume that beautiful, talented, successful superstars have high self-esteem and feel great about themselves. But all the speculation abo...
Many women I have spoken to talk about their fears of being a working mother in hushed tones, as if the topic is taboo. But shouldn't the conversation about marrying work and motherhood have evolved by now?
Jason Reitman is the director of such hit movies as Up In the Air, Juno and Thank You For Smoking so he obviously knows his way around a good film. So what can account for his lapses concerning his new film Labor Day?
Joyce Maynard admits that her favorite scene in Jason Reitman's film of her novel Labor Day is one that wasn't in the book.
Labor Day is one of those movies that either gets you to buy in and play along, or loses you at a crucial moment, earning only your mockery for the rest of its running time.
"Listen to your heart. If my films can touch one person and maybe give them the feeling that they don't have to be swallowed up by this world."
