Tribeca: Patrick Stewart and Mary Elizabeth Winstead Steal the Show on Night 3

12 hours ago

Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Patrick Stewart were two of the stars of the Tribeca Film Festival on Friday night, anchoring strong films that made their world premieres half an hour and a couple of miles apart. While Winstead was charming, subtle and quietly devastating in actor/director Chris Messina's “Alex of Venice,” Stewart was gloriously entertaining but also heart-wrenching in Stephen Belber's adaptation of his Broadway play “Match.” “Alex of Venice” screened a little earlier and a little further uptown; directed by Messina, whose day job includes regular roles on “The Mindy Project” and “The Newsroom,” it stars Winstead as the. »

‘Mad Men’ Final Season Wish-List: What Don Draper's Fate Should Be (Guest Blog)

21 hours ago

As a “Mad Men” superfan, it's difficult to say goodbye to one of my all-time favorite shows. I understand that splitting the final season into two parts may be the right choice financially for AMC, but creatively — it could become the unnecessarily long goodbye. While re-watching the show from start to finish in (feverish) anticipation of the premiere, I thought about how I want it to end. I trust the writers to do an outstanding job of delivering us the soapy — yet intelligent — twists and turns that have always made “Mad Men” addictive. But more than the storylines, »

‘A Haunted House 2' Review: Less Terrible, Still Terrible

23 hours ago

If “A Haunted House 2” is a step up from the previous go-round, it's either because a slightly more talented crew of comic actors are being asked to waste their time or because 2013 offered a better crop of horror films (“The Conjuring,” “Sinister,” etc.) to be lazily parodied. In any event, calling this one an improvement is like saying that being kicked in the shin is better than being punched in the stomach. Either way, it hurts.
