4 hours ago

The National Portrait Gallery is not currently displaying the Nelson Shanks painting of President Bill Clinton that has made headlines recently, when Shanks revealed he put a hidden Monica Lewinsky reference into the portrait. "The work by Shanks is in storage," Bethany Bentley, head of communications at the gallery, told The Hollywood Reporter. "The portrait has been off view in the museum since 2009."

'Chappie': Film Review

5 hours ago

Along with its innumerable other shortcomings, Chappie is one of the annoyingly growing number of films in which any and every character — here they run the gamut from techies to gangstas to robots — can instantly break into any computer system whenever they need to in about two seconds; a quick flurry of finger moves over the keyboard and they're invariably in, no problem. Is there ever a movie in which characters do this and then can't get in? This is but a minor irritant in a film well endowed with major ones, notably: unappealing one-note characters, retread

'Unfinished Business': Film Review

8 hours ago

In the years since he strutted onto the scene — lean, handsome, mouth running a mile a minute — in Doug Liman’s Swingers (1996), Vince Vaughn has become one of the poster boys for the mainstream American comedy: from romantic (The Break-Up) to bromantic (Old School), pretty good (Wedding Crashers) to very bad (Fred Claus) to frankly unnecessary (Delivery Man). His new film, Unfinished Business, falls into that last sub-category — perhaps not coincidentally, as it, too, has been directed by Ken Scott (Delivery Man was Scott’s remake of his own homegrown Quebecois hit, Starbuck).
