‘Epic’ Review: Bug Out on This Larger-Than-Life Adventure

The 17-year periodical cicadas are supposed to be bad this year, leaving their shells on trees and keeping people awake at night with their singing. So it’s fitting that Epic too arrives in 2013. Epic, a wheeling, action-filled tale based on ecosystem life cycles, takes the forest’s daily struggle between organic life and death to a whole new level – and does so without so much as a nod to big environmentalism.

'Beyond the Hills' Review: Methodical Swipes at Religion Bog Down Already Inert Story

In the final moments of "Beyond the Hills," a passing bus splashes dirty slush onto the windshield of a police van. The van’s wipers smear the grimy water across the windshield.

Warner Bros. Celebrates 90 Years of Sights, Sound

In 2012, Paramount and Universal Studios both celebrated their 100-year anniversaries. So it might seem a bit odd, and rather opportunistic, that Warner Bros. decided to celebrate their 90th this year. The studio's reasoning is good, though: The decade that the studio missed was the first 10 years of silent films, a period that the Warner brothers – Harry, Albert, Sam and Jack – helped end with Al Jolson’s iconic line, “Wait a minute, wait a minute, you ain’t heard nothin’ yet!” from The Jazz Singer. The phrase transformed Hollywood and sparked the beginning of a beautiful friendship between Warner Bros. and audiences. Mar 3, 2013 9:21 AM PT

'Anna Karenina' Review: Tolstoy's Duplicitous Love Story Given New Life

Screenwriter Tom Stoppard, who adapted the script for the most recent cinematic retelling of "Anna Karenina," recognizes both the centrality of love to the story, and the centrality of justice. It’s the intermingling of these two themes that make Tolstoy’s authentic classic endure. Nov 15, 2012 3:43 PM PT
