The film, which traces the journalism probe of sex abuse in the Boston Catholic Church, also won best original screenplay.
Rock was chosen to host Sunday’s Academy Awards for a second time last October — long before the #OscarsSoWhite furor that has overshadowed the biggest annual celebration of the movie industry. He first hosted the awards in 2005.
“Junction 48” tells the story of a Palestinian rap star and his girlfriend who live near Tel Aviv in the mixed Jewish-Palestinian city of Lod,
Sean Penn sat in front of me in history class, junior year at Santa Monica High School — the school rising on a hill with a quadrangle you see in ‘Rebel Without a Cause.’ He kept turning around to talk, the blue-eyed boy with all the questions. The younger, brown-eyed girl had all the answers — at least in history class. At 16, the existentialist devilish streak was already a mile wide. I got to know him well, coming of age.
Gervais, returning to host the Globes for the fourth time, riled up the audience with an opening monologue in which he called the A-list audience “disgusting, pill-popping, sexual deviant scum.”
Spoiler alert: It involves lying. Treating a Michael Bay film as if it’s a documentary with bearing on Hillary Clinton’s service as secretary of state doesn’t make a lot of sense. But that’s exactly what Kelly did.
The movie’s release — think reels of printed film and the red-carpet premieres of Hollywood yesteryear — requires special projectors, equipment and human operators.
Stephen King’s most terrifying invention may be something much closer to home — a coarse, unstable demagogue who enters the political arena seemingly out of nowhere, rides a wave of populism to an unlikely White House victory, and raging with messianic self-regard incites a nuclear apocalypse. Sound at all familiar?
In the new film, Rocky still ascends those steps. But he walks, he needs help. He has to take a breather. It is a soulful juxtaposition to his run up those same stairs when he was young, a moment of almost unbearable tenderness that reminds you just how long — and how short — is 39 years.
Home Alone has made enough hundreds of millions of dollars by now and solidified enough of a multigenerational fan base to survive the following review: to hell with it.
James Bond, Sir Ian Fleming’s suavely ruthless assassin and persnickety orderer of drinks, came to light in the Cold War. Can it be that it was all so simple then? Or has time rewritten every line?
if we’ve learned anything about the Italian Stallion, it’s that whenever you think he’s down for the count, he somehow manages to get back on his feet.
It’s not quite the future imagined. When Back to the Future Part II hit theaters in 1989, it included what the world might look like in 2015.
When writing ‘Steve Jobs,’ Aaron Sorkin had no interest in the conventional elements of a biopic, which he calls “that cradle-to-grave structure where you land on a protagonist’s greatest hits.”
‘Truth’ is a movie curiously in conflict with itself. There is a constant shift between granular detail and big-picture sweep that the film never fully resolves.
Spielberg says his new project resonated deeply with his own childhood memories, as a self-described “Sputnik kid” growing up during the height of the Cold War.
When we see her in a more personal light, we know that she’s not someone extraordinary — she’s just an ordinary girl who believed so much in standing up for the right thing that she couldn’t help but do it.
In ‘Time Out of Mind,’ set in a teeming New York City, a man with a bruised face and a bruised soul looks for places to sleep, for a reason to keep going.
Huey P. Newton and Eldridge Cleaver are dead, Bobby Seale is 78, Kathleen Cleaver is 70, the events that turned all of them into national figures are decades in the past. So how is it that ‘The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution’ comes off as the most relevant and contemporary of documentaries?
Gay Muslim filmmaker Parvez Sharma crossed several dangerous lines when documenting his 2010 hajj pilgrimage to Mecca on his iPhone for the newly released “A Sinner in Mecca.”
‘Grandma’ hands Lily Tomlin the first leading role she has played since the ’80s, reveling in every drop of the sharp-tongued sarcasm this consummate comedic actor conveys like no one else.
Filmmaker will forever be identified with the slasher, which he perfected, reinvented, deconstructed and reconstructed with genius, humor, and grace throughout his career.
By Shan Li, Los Angeles Times (TNS) Long ago in a galaxy not so far away, selling toys was a lot simpler. Put a commercial on TV. Lure shoppers to Toys R Us. Today, it’s not so easy to attract the attention of digital-savvy kids and their parents, who are watching less television and more […]
“Straight Outta Compton” is a depiction of a time and place — from its low-rider Chevys on hydraulics blaring hip-hop radio station KDAY to police batter ram vehicles crashing into suspected crack houses.
