’300: Rise of an Empire’ Review

Before anything else: the sex.

There is a sex scene in '300: Rise of an Empire' that is an all-timer. Put it right up there on the shelf next to 'Don't Look Now,' 'A History of Violence,' 'Blue is the Warmest Color,' '9 ½ Weeks' and any of the others that make those best-of lists. Actually, put next to that insanity in the pool from 'Showgirls' (you know, with the dolphin statue?), because there's a level of playful absurdity that changes it from a representation of love (or, more accurately, lust) to something of a Broadway choreographer's interpretation of a fight. Like a 'West Side Story' rumble, but with Eva Green moaning and bent over a table with maps and war figurines. A rise of an empire, indeed.

Weekend Box Office Report: Liam Neeson and ‘Non-Stop’ Battle Jesus and ‘Son of God’

This weekend saw a brutal showdown between Liam Neeson, the current god of action cinema, and Jesus Christ, the current god of millions of human beings. Since the box office is a "two may enter, but only one may leave" type showdown, the victory ultimately went to Mr. Neeson and 'Non-Stop,' which edged out the son of God and his movie, uh, 'Son of God' to win the weekend.

New Movies: ‘Non-Stop,’ ‘Son of God’

Two very different features hit theaters this weekend. The first is an action-thriller with Liam Neeson (seems like all he ever does is action-thrillers these days, doesn't it?). The second tells the story of Jesus Christ. So yeah, pretty different.

‘Non Stop’ Review

The opening shot of 'Non-Stop' has Liam Neeson pouring whiskey in a coffee cup and stirring it with a toothbrush. He then reaches out to a photo of a young girl to stroke it with his fingertips. After this the phone rings and the caller ID reads 555. In other words, three of the biggest movie cliches, all in about sixty seconds.

‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ Review

Wes Anderson has finally done it. He's gone and created his own country.

Zubrowka, the fictional town at the heart of 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' is positioned on the farthest Eastern edge of Europe's great empire. It is a melange of stylistic flourishes and decorative signifiers from a make believe 20th Century - a memory of a memory, a fastidious, whimsical take on real horrors - a storybook samizdat that entices with madcap adventure then goes in for the kill with existential dread. It is an incredible place to visit.

Why Don’t You Just Tell Me the Name of the Movie? Aol Officially Hanging Up Moviefone

Moviefone was made famous in the early '90s as a way for people to get movie showtimes over the phone, and was later cemented as a pop culture landmark as the focus of a classic 'Seinfeld' episode (wherein Kramer's phone number is one digit away from the Moviefone number, so he begins to adopt the role of Mr. Moviefone with hilarious results), but as of today, Moviefone is no more. Aol announced that it is shutting down the 777-FILM number and the Moviefone service, prompting many people to wonder aloud, Moviefone was still around?
