'Paper Towns': Film Review

15 hours ago

Based on an earlier teen fave novel by The Fault in Our Stars author John Green, Paper Towns is a mild coming-of-ager about dawning awareness and life lessons learned among a small group of Florida high school seniors. Part mystery story, part road movie and part pre-prom graduation romp, the film is most interesting as a perspective on adolescence in which all the girls are more mature, nervy and perceptive than any of the boys, who have some catching up to do if they're to have a chance with any of them. This one won't rake in

'Self/less': Film Review

18 hours ago

In 1966, John Frankenheimer directed one of his most audacious movies, Seconds, with a script by Lewis John Carlino from a novel by David Ely.

The movie was a box-office flop, but has developed a cult following over the years and clearly had an influence on the makers of Self/less, director Tarsem Singh and screenwriters Alex Pastor and David Pastor. The new

Comic-Con: Which Movies Could Benefit From Panel Buzz?

19 hours ago

The effect that San Diego Comic-Con can have on a movie is a strange thing; the excitement generated from footage seen at the show can turn a project into a must-see — within a certain demographic, at least — or, alternatively, into a target for derision and snark, should the Comic-Con hive mind decide that it's not something that lives up to their collective expectations. This year, there are a couple of high-profile projects that run the risk of disappointing fans, and thus watching their buzz go sour: Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Batman v

3 July 2015 10:52 PM, PDT

The circus has definitely come to town. Chicago was crawling with tie-dyed and skull-clad visitors all day Friday.

The festivities kicked off shortly after 7 p.m. at Soldier Field, where the surviving members of the Grateful Dead -- Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, ​Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann, known as the "core four" -- kicked off a three-night run they say will be their
