Film Review: 'Mr. Morgan's Last Love'

10 July 2014 9:34 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆In Sandra Nettelbeck's wistful romance Mr. Morgan's Last Love (2013) Michael Caine plays Matthew Morgan, a retired American professor living in Paris several years on from the death of his wife (Jane Alexander). A lonely grief-stricken man, Matthew wanders the city, eating his usual fussily ordered sandwich, visiting his wife’s grave and occasionally lunching with Colette (Anne Alvaro) in a platonic friendship/ English lesson. Apart from this weak connection, Matthew has withdrawn into his self, isolating himself from the world, stumbling through his days and the gorgeous city in a grief numbed daze and even refusing to learn French, almost stubbornly protracting his isolation and melancholy.

'Batman v. Superman v. Kramer' and Other Sequels We Need

21 May 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When I heard the title "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice," I didn't snicker like most of the internet. I immediately wondered what sequels such a perfect, restrained movie title could spawn. Here are the five we need most desperately. 1. Batman v. Superman v. Kramer: Dawn of Divorce Justice After a contentious separation, Batman realizes he must shape up as a man, as a parent. When reunited in court with his icy ex Superman, he realizes Clark Kent is the true, rightful guardian of their child. Superman weeps to the prosecutor about how broken he is as a person and argues he shouldn't be punished for abandoning his child; he needed to become a whole human being again. Batman's neighbor is Jane Alexander. 2. Batman v. Superman v. Tony Orlando and Dawn of Justice Batman and Superman band together in this revenge fantasy against the evil and enchanting Tony Orlando, who »

‘The Blacklist’s’ James Spader Helps Lure Top Villain Guest Spots

7 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Blacklist” has been full of pleasant surprises for NBC this year. One of the most unexpected aspects of the Sony Pictures TV drama — the freshman success story of the season by any measure — is how much the series has been able to do with guest stars in the villain-of-the-week slot.

The show’s conceit demands a strong presence in each episode for a guest actor. James Spader’s Raymond “Red” Reddington is a master criminal now helping the FBI catch crooks — although to what end is part of a larger storyline that drives the show.

“Blacklist” blends the mystery that envelopes its main characters with a specific puzzle for Red and his youthful FBI liaison, Liz, played by Megan Boone, to solve each week. Red’s long career as “the concierge of crime” has seen him tangle with all manner of high-level bad guys and gals, some with exotic aliases such as the Stewmaker, »
