    "The Beatles: Eight Days a Week: The Touring Years" just hit theaters a couple of weeks ago, to mostly positive reviews.

  • 4DX theaters provide an experience unlike anything you've had before

    At 4DX theaters, a variety of effects combine for one unforgettable movie experience

    In the beginning, there were only moving pictures. Then came sound, followed by color, stereo and 3D. Now, thanks to 4DX, the next evolution in cinema has arrived. And unlike the small, incremental steps of the past, it’s a giant leap forward. 4DX theaters use an array of elements to create a truly...

    Beatles-Ron Howard film held over in US for second week, maybe longer

    The success of “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week: The Touring Years” has prompted theater owners to keep the film, directed by Ron Howard, running in the U.S. another week starting Sept. 23. It may be around even longer than that according to Richard Abramowitz, who handles U.S. distribution for the...

    Goofy Beatles DVD/CD set preaches all you need is war

    “All This and World War II” was one of the strangest Beatles projects ever. Released in 1976, the film featured public domain World War II footage against the backdrop of covers of Beatles songs. The films included appearances by Humphrey Bogart, Milton Berle, Dwight Eisenhower and many more, among...

    Movie review: Oliver Stone's 'Snowden' fails to resonate despite strong performance

    Few directors stamp their movies in the way that Oliver Stone does.  An "Oliver Stone movie" means something in the same way a "Michael Moore documentary" does, in that you know that the filmmaker's strong voice will be inherent and will come through loud and clear on the screen in a way that seems...

    Movie review: 'Max Rose' a dreary showcase for screen legend, Jerry Lewis

    It's been over 20 years since screen icon Jerry Lewis headlined a movie, and oddly enough, he chose a drama for his big-screen return.  The result is a mixed bag, as the film features a fine performance by Lewis, but he's stuck in a depressing slog of a movie.  As the title character in "Max Rose...

    Movie review: 'Bridget Jones's Baby' delivers more than just laughs

    Forget the forgetful sequel to the original "Bridget Jones's Diary":  "Bridget Jones's Baby" (opening Friday, Sept. 16), is the more worthy successor to the hit 2001 comedy.  Renee Zellweger - truly a sight for sore eyes - reprises her Oscar-nominated role, with original "Diary" director Sharon...

    15 awesome video games that should be made into movies (complete with recommendations)

    The League of Legends World Championship is happening in a matter of weeks, but the same can't be said about movie adaptations for some of the best video games of all-time. There have been several good movies based on video games and even more awful ones, but there is still a treasure-trove of great...

    Top 10 video game movies of all-time

    Let's face it: The genre of "video game movies" is quite weak, and selecting one of them to be the "best-of-the-best" is sort of like being named valedictorian of summer school. Still, with the League of Legends World Championship about to drop in October, we thought it might be appropriate to look...

    8 worst movies based on video games

    The League of Legends World Championship is just a few weeks away, which gives us all some time to ponder some of life's deepest questions in the interim.  Like what is the meaning of life?  Will it be Trump or Clinton?  Whose head did Negan smash with a bat?  And based on the headline to this...

    Steven Tyler really wants to be in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 3’

    Steven Tyler is really taking advantage of his year off from Aerosmith. Aside from diving headfirst into the world of country music releasing his first ever solo album, We’re All Somebody From Somewhere, it turns out that the sixty-eight year old rocker also wants to really try his hand at acting...

    6 great movies that became awful video games

    Every rose has its thorn, so to speak, and as we just covered 6 great video games that were movies first, it's now time to flip-the-script. We ask: What happens when good movies go bad, or at least, end up as horrible video games? There have been several great films that have had video game versions...

    6 great video games that were movies first

    While we sit around waiting for the League of Legends World Championship to kick back into gear, we're left with tons of down-time to sit and reflect about all things gaming (when we're not actually playing, obviously). With tons of upcoming movies based on video games headed our way, we wanted to...

    Movie review: Tom Hanks not able to save 'Sully' from itself

    These are divisive times, and so it should come as no surprise that even real-American luminary Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger's hero-status is up for debate.  Captain Sully, you may recall, was the pilot of US Airways Flight 1549 back in January of 2009, who was able to successfully land his...

    Movie review: 'Morris from America' a coming-of-age story given a refreshing new beat

    If you're a sucker for a good coming-of-age story, then "Morris from America" (opening today, Sept 2) is a film you desperately need to seek out.  It's funny, different, and one of more surprising finds of the year. Newcomer Markees Christmas plays Morris, a 13-year-old African-American boy living...

    Movie review: 'Hands of Stone' pulls no punches

    Since "Rocky," we have come to develop certain expectations for a "boxing movie."  Typically, we are given an underdog story of a down-and-out but up-and-coming fighter, who against all odds punches, dodges and parries his way to the top.  There is usually a girl who believes in him and a trainer...

    Movie review: 'Mechanic: Resurrection' in need of a fixer-upper

    Action star Jason Statham reprises his role as Arthur "The Mechanic" Bishop in the sequel that nobody asked for, "Mechanic: Resurrection" (opening Friday, 8/26).  It's the sequel to the 2011 film "The Mechanic," which itself was a remake of the cult 1972 film of the same name, starring Charles...

    Movie review:  'Ben-Hur' not only an epic failure, but a shameful smear of the classic 1959 film

    Throwing a bunch of ingredients in a bowl, doth not an apple pie make.  "Ben-Hur" (opening today) is the latest head-scratcher to come out of Hollywood, an unnecessary, unwanted remake of what should have been an untouchable classic.  Taking memorable characters and scenes and shoving them kicking...
