    Review: 'Paul Williams: Still Alive' Is A Wonderfully Weird, Surprisingly Moving Tribute To A Forgotten Musical Icon

    Does the name Paul Williams mean anything to you? Does it ring a bell? No? How about these songs: "Rainbow Connection," "Evergreen," "We've Only Just Begun," "Old Fashioned Love Song"? Williams is the legendary singer-songwriter behind those tunes and a former '70s superstar and personality who made...

    Weekend Preview: Spectacular 'Prometheus' Arrives, 'Safety Not Guaranteed' Best of the Indies

    "Prometheus" finally arrives this weekend and it's quite a ride. While its story may not deliver on the promise of its dazzling trailer and promos, it's visually stunning and Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are an impressive pair.

    Review: 'Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding' Is A Fun, Easy Trip Upstate

    There are moments during certain romantic comedies when you might find yourself throwing up your hands and growling, “come on!” under your breath. And with good reason: the improbability of plotlines and inconsistencies of characters are enough to drive even the sappiest of us screaming ...

    Jane Fonda Brings Back the 60's in 'Peace, Love & Misunderstanding'

    RKO Radio Pictures: A Titan Is Born—book review

    I can’t explain why I’ve always been attracted to the films of RKO. It can’t just be that arresting radio tower logo; there’s something unpredictable about the studio’s body of work during the 1930s and '40s.

    Review: 'iLL Manors' An Uneven But Honest Attempt At A True Depiction Of Young Urban Life In Britain

    Britain isn’t exactly awash with artists pumping out protest songs any more. Back in 1977 during the Queen’s Silver Jubilee, The Sex Pistols were sailing down the Thames to the tune of “God Save The Queen,” but 35 years later during her Diamond Jubilee there was a flotilla he...
