Movie Jail: This week's defendant is...Reese Witherspoon!

The offenses vary from convict to convict but most of these inmates have contributed negatively to the film world to some capacity* and his or her misdeeds have covered a long enough period of time that the authorities had...

This week: Tom Cruise and his old school sci-fi, a bizarro season of Community, and Ryan Gosling goes gritty again. ► OBLIVION is like the year’s forgotten sci-fi movie, cast aside once all those shiny summer toys arrived. It deserves a fresh set of eyes, if only because it’s Tom...

Review: Mud

PLOT: Two boys happen upon an outlaw in hiding and help him repair a boat and elude the men who are hunting him. REVIEW: Jeff Nichols is quickly becoming one of my favorite new directors.

Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon look damn impressive in the trailer for Mud

I remember seeing A TIME TO KILL back in 1996 and thinking that Matthew McConaughey was going to be a big star some day. Well, he was poised for superstardom and churned out a bunch of lackluster romcoms that did pretty well at the box office. But, something happened when he got married and settled down. Now, we are finally getting Matthew McConaughey , the actor instead of the...
