Trailer Talk: ‘Cyrus’

— by ALLISON HIGGINBOTHAM — Am I the only one who enjoys John C. Reilly, no matter what the role is? Look at his filmography: from “Gangs of New York” to “Talladega Nights,” that man has range. Of course, this doesn’t mean I’m going as far as seeing something like “The[...]

Two Scenes From ‘The Yellow Handkerchief’

— by ALEXA MILAN — It’s not uncommon for small indie films that once received little attention to find an audience when one of its stars hits it big. This seems to be the case for the Kristen Stewart-starring “The Yellow Handkerchief,” which debuted at Sundance in early 2008[...]

Under Review: ‘Michael Jackson’s This Is It’

— by SCOTT SWAN — For most of my life, I’ve been a Michael Jackson fan. I first heard about the talented entertainer when I was 10. A friend from church gave me “Off The Wall” for my birthday, the LP that is. I played the crap out of that record, despite the fact that [[...]
