The 35 Greatest Murder Mystery Movies Ever Made

Posted By Gary Susman on Nov 28th 2014 2:32PM
Murder mysteries are so commonplace on TV that each week offers seemingly dozens of them on police procedural series and detective shows. But in the movies, whodunits are surprisingly rare, and really good ones rarer still. There's really only a handful of movies that excel in offering the viewer the pleasure of solving the crime along with a charismatic sleuth, often with an all-star cast of susp... read more

'Foxcatcher' Review: You May Wrestle With It, But It's Definitely Worth Seeing

Posted By Jason Gorber on November 11, 2014
"Foxcatcher" isn't a film about trapping animals, but it is captivating, and in its own way extremely wild. Based on a true story involving Olympic wrestlers, an heir to a great fortune, and a smouldering conflict that soon caught fire, this is a challenging-yet-rewarding film with some impeccable performances. This is the one with Steve Carell wearing a funny nose, right? Yeah, that's the o...

Netflix Is Dropping These 79 Movies From Streaming on December 1st

Posted By Tim Hayne on November 11, 2014
Netflix giveth and Netflix taketh away. While everyone's favorite subscription streaming service is adding a ton of awesome movies and TV shows in December, it's also yanking a huge list of popular titles from its library. Below is said list. I'm especially sad to see "Dirty Dancing" and "The Talented Mr. Ripley" go. Those movies are the sh... Watch them while you can! Movies Being Droppe...

The 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Trailer Is Here, in All Its Old-School Badass Glory

Posted By Drew Taylor on November 11, 2014
Well, after some false starts and somewhat convincing fakes, the trailer for J.J. Abrams astronomically anticipated "Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens" trailer is here. And it's totally amazing. The trailer is only 88 seconds long, but it's packed full of "Star Wars"-y goodness: John Boyega as a storm-trooper, rebel X-wings delicately skimming some unknown body of water, new "chr...

'Foxcatcher' Cast Comes Clean About Process, Character and Dealing With Darkness

Posted By Jason Gorber on November 11, 2014
"Foxcatcher" is at its most captivating when you look at the individual performances by a remarkable ensemble of actors. The interplay between the leads is both the core of the story and the real heart of the film's success. With a breakthrough lead performance of sorts by Steve Carell as John du Pont, there's also room to praise another terrific turn by Channing Tatum as Olympic wrestler Mar...

Bennett Miller, 'Foxcatcher' Director, on His Inspiration and Casting Channing Tatum

Posted By Jason Gorber on November 11, 2014
When you meet Bennett Miller in person, his films seem to make a bit more sense. A quiet, intense man, the cadence of his answers can be charitably described as "deliberate," while others might simply wish for him to speed up slightly and get to the point. The same charges have been levied against his works by detractors, but fans of "Capote," "Moneyball," and now "Foxcatcher" revel in the lu...

33 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About Jamie Foxx

Posted By Jonny Black on November 11, 2014
With both an Oscar and a Grammy on his mantle, Jamie Foxx is a one-man entertainment empire. Foxx began his career as a stand-up comedian before landing his own sitcom just a few years later -- and then he awed the world. His portrayal of Ray Charles in "Ray" (2004) earned Foxx one accolade after another and even relaunched his music career. Fresh off his Oscar win, the multi-hyphenate teamed w...

10 Things You Should Know Before You See 'Horrible Bosses 2'

Posted By Drew Taylor on November 11, 2014
When 2011's "Horrible Bosses" came to an end, did you find yourself wondering (aloud), "What happens next?" Well, you're in luck, because this week "Horrible Bosses 2" is going to answer all of those questions (and then some). "Horrible Bosses 2" has Jason Sudeikis, Jason Bateman, and Charlie Day reprising their respective roles from the first film, and this time the hapless trio gets involve...

James Cameron Uses Outdated Slang to Hype 'Avatar' Sequels

Posted By Drew Taylor on November 11, 2014
It's pretty apparent that James Cameron is a certifiable madman. When he's not launching risky, technologically unproven science fiction epics, he's traveling down to the bottom of the ocean in a one-man submarine or something equally insane and death defying. And in talking about his sequels to "Avatar," Cameron has decided to try something even loonier: bring back outdated slang in an attempt ...

'Horrible Bosses 2' Review: Why the Comedy Sequel Isn't As Horrible As You Might Think

Posted By Rick Mele on November 11, 2014
The first "Horrible Bosses" landed as a solid hard-R hit back in 2011, thanks to audiences falling for Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day as a lovably bumbling trio of would-be criminals. Well, that, and the appeal of watching Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Aniston saying dirty words. So Nick (Bateman), Kurt (Sudeikis) and Dale (Day) are back again for "Horrible Bosses 2," having ditche...

10 Christmas Movies That Haven't Aged Well

Posted By Drew Taylor on November 11, 2014
In Charles Dickens's immortal "A Christmas Carol," Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by three ghosts: the ghost of Christmas present, the ghost of Christmas past, and the ghost of Christmas future. When it comes to Christmas movies, there are plenty of titles that you've watched in the past, a few that you watch now, and even less that you'd watch in the future. Somehow, this analogy made more sense bef...

'Frozen' Continues World Domination, Beats Barbie in Toy Sales

Posted By Katie Roberts on November 11, 2014
When it comes to toy sales this holiday season, Barbie has been "Frozen" out. Merchandise featuring Disney's blockbuster animated musical has been dominating sales and wish lists this year, with "Frozen" items knocking Barbie off of the top of the toy aisle food chain. A survey conducted by the National Retail Foundation -- which polls consumers annually about their buying habits -- asked sho...

What's New on Netflix Streaming in December 2014

Posted By Tim Hayne on November 11, 2014
Netflix streaming is upping the ante this December, adding enough high-profile TV shows and movies to more than make up for last month's lackluster offerings. On the movie side, highlights include Will Ferrell and gang in "Anchorman 2," the Heath Ledger-starring "A Knight's Tale," Cameron Crowe classic "Almost Famous," Oscar-winning "American Beauty," and horror hits "Oculus" and "Paranormal Ac...

President Obama Loves Meryl Streep as Much as the Rest of Us (VIDEO)

Posted By Katie Roberts on November 11, 2014
Presidents: They're just like us. In a ceremony Monday night awarding the Presidential Medal of Freedom -- the nation's highest civilian honor -- to 19 men and women, President Barack Obama revealed that, like many Americans, he's a huge fan of Meryl Streep. So much so, in fact, that she was selected to receive the medal, and was also on the receiving end of a laudatory speech from the leader...

It's Official: 'Wonder Woman' Movie Lassos Michelle MacLaren to Direct

Posted By Katie Roberts on November 11, 2014
After some recent speculation, it's now official: Michelle MacLaren will direct the "Wonder Woman" movie. MacLaren, known for her work on television shows such as "Breaking Bad," "Game of Thrones," and "The Walking Dead," had been in the running for the job for some time, but only recently became the frontrunner after talks over the summer fizzled, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Posted By Katie Roberts on November 11, 2014
The first trailer for "Pan," the origin story for classic character Peter Pan, is finally here, and it's chock full of eye-popping visuals as well as versions of the iconic characters we've come to know and love over the years.

Posted By Tim Hayne on November 11, 2014
At long last, the "Jurassic World" trailer we've all been waiting for is here... and two days earlier than expected. Watch it below. After long last, we get more details on the story. This time around, Jurassic World is a full-fledged dino-filled safari park, complete with aquatic prehistoric beasts (yeah, we get the "Jaws" joke/reference), but, in true "Jurassic" franchise fashion, things go t...

James Franco and Seth Rogen Invade North Korea in 'The Interview' Trailer

Posted By Kelly Woo on November 11, 2014
Seth Rogen and James Franco seem to have a pact to make ridiculous, yet funny, movies together. The "Pineapple Express" stars are reuniting in the Rogen-directed "The Interview," which might have the most ludicrous premise yet. As a new trailer reveals, Franco is a talk show host, and Rogen is his producer. They land an interview with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, but their big moment beco...
