Under Review: ‘Conviction’

— by JESSIKA OWENS — “And the Oscar goes to …” Yes, folks, I have Oscar faith in “Conviction.” From start to finish, this film commands your full attention and I think it’s going to succeed at the next Academy Awards on both the acting as well as techn[...]

Trailer Talk: ‘Conviction’

— by RACHEL COYNE — Oh man, can you smell the Oscar bait up in here? Based on a true story? Check. Starring multiple past nominees and winners? Check. Lead actor de-glamorizes to play a “real” person? Check. The drama centers around a legal and/or political problem? Check. If only Co[...]

‘Iron Man 2’ Featurette: Villains

— by CAM SMITH — As I’ve surely stated in the past, I’m seriously pleased with Marvel’s approach to promoting “Iron Man 2” so far. They’ve veered refreshingly away from the uber-spoilery stuff (remember when they included the Tony Stark cameo in[...]
