John Lopez | Posted 03.12.2013 | Los Angeles

I'm going to advocate that Oscar bloggers, much like starting pitchers, should be on rotation with mandatory rest years in-between. But before I start my online petition, I figured I'd muse on today's Oscar nominations from my completely uninformed point of view.

Review: Steven Spielberg's Lincoln Is Mostly Engrossing, Richly Moral Political Drama

Scott Mendelson | Posted 01.09.2013 | Entertainment
Scott Mendelson

As a look into how politics worked in the mid-1800s, and of course how it still works today, Lincoln is surprisingly funny and endlessly compelling. But the need to create a defining portrait of our sixteenth president creates both needlessly solemn subplots and some narrative repetition that prevents true greatness.

Lincoln may be what America needs right now to remind us what politics, for all its messy, dispiriting ugliness, can and should be about -- doing the right, moral thing to better us all.

This is the first movie since It's Complicated that portrays sexual relationships in folks past 40. It bravely tackles the complex issues of sexual desire and intimacy in "seniors," however we may define that term.

Is Meryl Streep Our Generation's Next Helen Gurley Brown?

Suzanne Braun Levine | Posted 10.15.2012 | Fifty
Suzanne Braun Levine

The fact that Meryl Streep's new movie "Hope Springs" opened and Helen Gurley Brown died in the same week seems to me a passing of a very important baton. The baton our Post50 generation needs to get us moving toward an honest and candid discussion about sex.

What I Learned From Hope Springs

Rick Mele | Posted 10.09.2012 | Moviefone Canada
Rick Mele

Hope Springs, about a Nebraskan housewife whose needs aren't being met by her husband, is an impressively frank examination of a marriage gone stale. As a public service, I attempted to sort out the various breakthroughs I had while watching.

'Hope Springs' Has Serious Charms

Liz Smith | Posted 10.09.2012 | Celebrity

If you can believe that the woman who played both the dynamic domineering Margaret Thatcher and the delicious Julia Child is a hopeless, despondent and put-upon matron - well, that's the theme of "Hope Springs."

They take a very specific couple and make them universal. It could be a primer on what couple's therapy is about, how it works and how the results won't always be life-changing breakthroughs -- at least not right away.

6 Confusing Things About 'Men In Black 3'

Mike Ryan | Posted 07.28.2012 | Entertainment
Mike Ryan

Now that you've seen Men in Black 3 (or perhaps you didn't -- it's not humanly possible for me to keep tabs on all of you), I have a few questions. Look, I like to pretend that I have at least the intelligence of an average human being (I graduated from a Big 12 school, so I realize even that may be a stretch), but there are quite a few things in the Men in Black 3 plot that confused me. I get it: perhaps Min in Black 3 isn't supposed to be one of those movies you think about too hard. And I did enjoy it more than I probably should have, considering how much it's making me fret. But, alas, as I sit here on my birthday, of all days, I just can't help it. Maybe we can all work though this together?
