‘Left Behind’ Review: Nicolas Cage Tests Our Faith With Rapture Disaster Movie

7 minutes ago

Left Behind,” a Rapture disaster movie opening Friday, has all the subtlety of a sledgehammer and production values that verge on parody. Intended for a broad audience, it's best appreciated by the most ardently faithful. Where HBO's post-departure series “The Leftovers” is moody and enigmatic, “Left Behind” is heavy-handed and overt. There is no mistaking the Christian messaging behind this remake of 2000's direct-to-dvd movie starring Kirk Cameron, based on Tim Lahaye and Jerry B. Jenkins’ bestselling series: Biblical scriptures abound; characters warn about the need to be ready for the apocalypse. “God knows everything,” a persistent traveler tells journalist Buck. »

CW Diversity Scorecard: Better But Still Whiter and Less Gay Than Its Target Audience

42 minutes ago

Stars and showrunners of The CW's new Fall 2014 offerings were eager to discuss the network's push for diversity at Paleyfest earlier this summer, but according to a new study, the youth-skewing network still under-represents minorities on screen. The good news is it has improved in some areas. The CW's 2014-15 offerings are more ethnically-diverse than ever before in the network's history, but according to new findings, its scripted shows still populate worlds significantly whiter than the audience they are targeting. The network's upcoming lineup will feature 89 series regular roles spread over 12 shows, but only 23 of them are »

‘The Good Lie’ Review: Reese Witherspoon Delivers Strong and Giving Performance

8 hours ago

Director Philippe Falardeau makes his big studio debut with “The Good Lie,” a fictional film based on the many true-life experiences of the thousands of Sudanese “Lost Boy” refugees who came to America in the late '90s and early 2000s. While the posters and promotional material prominently feature Reese Witherspoon, it's also worth noting that Falardeau and screenwriter Margaret Nagle never make the film's Sudanese characters accessories or faceless symbols, and the end result makes for an uncommonly solid and smart take on material lesser directors would have milked for the cheapest kind of sympathy.
