Taking place in the immediate aftermath of the original, "Hayride 2" continues after a brief recap as survivors from the Alabama-set slasher recover from shell shock in a dilapidated hospital while the imposing and apparently indestructible serial killer pulls a Hannibal Lecter and wakes up...
Honestly, when a sequel is called "Second Best" the joke is just right there, waiting. And so when it turns out that "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" is, in fact, a lesser follow-up to its surprise 2012 hit predecessor, it tests one's sense of restraint not to go right for the obvious...
"Chappie" is a movie about the evolution of artificial intelligence that's as dumb as a post. It also marks the continuing devolution of the work of director and co-writer Neill Blomkamp.
Ziggy Gruber always knows whenever he's in a good delicatessen.
In the new film "'71," set in bloody Northern Ireland during the Troubles between Catholics and Protestants, a young soldier must find his way back to his barracks. It's a story both simple and filled with complexities, a gripping, straight-ahead chase movie that's also politically aware.
On paper, a small, gentle comedy about British pensioners who travel to India to spend their retirement years at a hotel in Jaipur certainly didn't sound like an international box office hit.
Will Smith is clearly not someone who is accustomed to failure. He had a hit hip-hop song on the radio when he was still in high school and has been wildly successful ever since.
Wayne Federman is a comic, actor and writer who has performed on "The Tonight Show" and appeared in such films and TV series as "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," "The Larry Sanders Show" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm."
The UCLA Festival of Preservation doesn't have a motto, but if it did it might be "Give me your tired films, your huddled masses of forgotten and decaying cinema, and I will breathe fire into them and set them free." Really.
Movies don't have to be an either/or proposition. They can be both smart and fun, a pleasure without guilt and self-aware without being snobby.
“CitizenFour” producers Mathilde Bonnefoy and Dirk Wilutzky and director Laura Poitras called for only serious questions in the pressroom after winning the Oscar for documentary feature, refusing to answer a question about how they would celebrate the night.
In accepting the Oscar for supporting actress on Sunday, "Boyhood" star Patricia Arquette wound down with:
At almost every juncture in "Out of the Dark," a ghost thriller set in Colombia, something textured and evocative — a poor village, a dark old house, a menacing jungle — is beautifully photographed. Nearly everything else (story, direction, performances, scares) is thuddingly...
Has every zombie story been told? Probably. Die-rise-chomp doesn't offer much variation. But there will always be a committed few who approach this popular horror subset with the enthusiasm and insouciance of successful used-car sales folk.
"Longmire" has done an admirable job portraying Native Americans, but one TV series is hardly enough to sustain a presence in the public consciousness. That's why it's crucial to make room for something like "Drunktown's Finest" by Navajo filmmaker Sydney Freeland as part of the American...
Documentary director Kirby Dick and producer Amy Ziering can often be found in the eye of a hurricane. Three years ago, they teamed up on "The Invisible War," and now they are back with the equally devastating "The Hunting Ground."
John Boorman's 1987 masterpiece "Hope and Glory" was autobiographical gold, a young boy's fevered view of the London Blitz: surviving Nazi bombs was fun, but a family on edge? Yikes.
An incendiary film that takes off like a house afire, "'71" is a tense thriller from Britain that so adroitly joins physical intensity, emotional authenticity and political acuity that you may find yourself forgetting to take a brea...
In its own disturbing, slithery way, the train-wreck watchable melodrama "Maps to the Stars" is as much a horror show as any that the film's director, David Cronenberg, has helmed over his long and provocative career.
The documentary "My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn" tracks the making of Danish filmmaker Refn's 2013 film "Only God Forgives" starring Ryan Gosling. From the six-month shoot in Bangkok to the premiere of "Only God Forgives" at the Cannes Film Festival, it's recounted here — as...
