To this generation, Elaine Stritch is probably best known for playing Alec Baldwin’s overbearing mother on “30 Rock.” Before she was Colleen Donaghy, however, Stritch already had quite the résumé. In a showbiz career that’s now spanned roughly seven decades, she’s done it all, from movies, to television, to radio, to cabaret. Stritch cemented herself as a performing legend on the Broadway stage, starring in countless plays and finally winning a Tony for her one-woman show back in 2002.
300: Rise of an Empire is both a prequel and a sequel to the 2007 film, 300, one of the most stylized action films ever made. The new movie has the same gritty and dark HD tonal quality of the first movie, as well as the sporadic ultra-slow-motion effects that capture the exaggerated battles and blood-spilling in extreme detail; but it’s missing some of the heart from often copied original.
Robert De Niro is a ruthless gangster; John Cusack is experiencing motel hell; a hot hooker with a heart of gold is on the run; a satchel bag with mysterious contents. Haven’t we seen all this before? The Bag Man desperately borrows from dozens of other dark and gritty crime-thriller films, but, unfortunately, it is more ‘bore’ than noir.
A few weeks ago we got “The Lego Movie,” an animated feature that looked like a disaster waiting to happen. Since its release, however, the film has become a box office hit and received praise from virtually every human being on the planet, myself included. “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” is another family movie that seemed destined to flop at first glance. A modern day 3D extravaganza based on a 1960’s cartoon that was never even so great to begin with? I smell another “Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle.”
One of the many surprises in Wes Anderson's rich, layered and quirkily entertaining new film, "The Grand Budapest Hotel," is the emergence of a new comic actor, one with impeccable timing and just the right mix of gravitas and utter zaniness.
When “300” came out almost seven years ago, you probably either thought it was the coolest movie of all time or the lamest movie of all time. While it was dumb and silly, the film’s glorified violence, striking look, and classic one-liners did admittedly have an effect on the macho dinosaur in me. The sad truth is that the style over substance appeal of “300” is only good for one movie. The first time you see such eye candy popping out at the screen, it’s friggin’ awesome. The second time around, it’s about as repetitive as watching Optimus Prime transform over and over again. That’s just one of the reasons why “300: Rise of the Empire” is dead on arrival.

The fanciest event of the year for the denizens of Hollywood is nigh, and what better way to celebrate the bright lights, glamour, fame and misfortune of the Oscars than to throw a world-class shindig?
NEW YORK — For a compulsive online quiz-taker like Chrissy Noh, the temptation was too great to resist: "Which sandwich are you?"
NEW YORK — Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds has been enjoying rock stardom from a relevantly sane place.
This Sunday the 86th Annual Academy Awards Ceremony will grace our TV’s. During the Ceremony, Arizona can be expected to be raked over the coals once again. Of course it is no longer the G-rated Program it once was. Now they have to use “L” for Language and “N” for Nudity alerts and probably “M” for Mature would be more fitting. We will of course be subjected to some male/female body part(s) being bared due to an “accidental” clothing malfunction. We will of course be subjected to f-bombs, c-bombs, s-bombs and other assorted profanity from the host/hostess, the presenters, and the awardees. Crocodile tears, mock surprise and humility will rule the day. The “best” movie will be awarded to one of the usual liberal Hollywood. Heaven forbid that any movie positively portraying a normal American family or having a pro-American theme would ever win an Oscar these days.
NEW YORK — Six years ago, Matthew McConaughey was starring in a movie called "Surfer, Dude," a film about as good as its title implies. He played a shirtless surfer plunged into an existential crises when his good luck with waves runs out.

“I have had it with these ‘monkey fighting’ SMSs on this ‘Monday to Friday’ plane!” No, it’s not a line from the latest Liam Neeson action vehicle, Non-Stop, but it could have been. There are so many ways one could slam this new film, but, surprisingly, despite its clichés and convoluted plot, this is still a thrilling and fun time at the movies.
