Hollywood can only keep a couple of thoughts in its head. It's like a jungle predator: it knows what it wants and goes after it almost single-mindedly. And so it chases after comic book movies and young adult adaptations because of The Avengers and because of The Hunger Games. The latest young adult adaptation is The...

Based on a public radio show of the same name, A Prairie Home Companion focuses on the last night of a show that ran for 30 years in Minnesota.  The characters aren't fully developed, but that their backgrounds are not fully revealed is quite fitting.  As is often is the case, what people say or do doesn't matter as much as how they make you feel.  A...

Oscars 2012: A Wrap Up

Jean Dujardin wins an Oscar
In a year with a number of great movies, The Oscars mostly went for comfort food over bold decisions, but what else is to be expected at this point? It's hard to be upset with a voting block that has - time and time again - picked nice and safe and maybe a little political over most of the films that tend to matter. When you look back at 1999, who still thinks American...

I know a lot of actors and actresses who say that "they won't do web shows," as if it's beneath them or something. Well it's not beneath Meryl Streep so I think everyone else can just shut up for a moment.

Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep will be teaming up for a project together called August: Osage County. If the title sounds familiar it's because it's a feature adaptation of the play of the same name.

This movie is too good to be true. Everytime Meryl Streep teams up with Stanley Tucci magic happens. Whatever those two have, they should bottle it and sell it at a ridiculously high price -- I'd buy it!

Last fall, director Wes Anderson did what most people considered the impossible. He adapted the short Roald Dahl story of Fantastic Mr. Fox and turned it into a feature length film. Instead of taking the ever popular route of using CGI, he decided to bring the characters to life with stop motion animation. He also got an A-list cast led by Oscar winners...

Although I was a bit surprised to see Sandra Bullock take the Oscar last night (she did do a fine job in The Blind Side, but I was rooting for new-comer Carey Mulligan or my favorite Helen Mirren), I will say she gave one damn fine speech, one with a bit of humility, a few jokes, acceptance of her peers, a message to the mothers of adopted parents and then a WHOLE...

It's Complicated: Meryl Streep and Alex Baldwin
There are romantic comedies and then there are romantic comedies. It's one of the most over-done, cliched genres out there, but when done right and lead by some of the best actors currently gracing the silver screen, they can be worth your while. Although It's Complicated is not the best film of the year, there are plenty of great moments that make it the perfect,...
