'Boyhood' tops Golden Globes, 'Grand Budapest' upsets

...Birdman" still came away with best actor in a comedy or musical for its lead...most hotly contested categories, best actor in a drama, Eddie Redmayne's star, Jeffery Tambor, landed best actor in the category, dedicating his...
Reeling it in: 'Fury' a grim but effective war film

...true impact. I was particularly impressed with the performances in the film. Brad Pitt is one of his generation's best actors, but his weakest characters are those like Collier, soldiers, gruff and grim. Here, though, he manages to make...

Hercules a rare disappointment from "The Rock" out of improving mediocre films with his winning personality and incredibly charismatic performances. He is a good actor, if not necessarily a great one, but he tends to boost the quality of just about any project he's associated with...

Movie review: Here's the dirt on the 'Snitch'

...carnage, but I think the casting of Johnson in this role was a mistake. He does a fine job, and I think he's a good actor, but it's a problem of perception. I kept expecting him to snap someone's neck and instead we'd just have another...

Movie review: Explosive fun in 'Pacific Rim'

...he handles the role just fine and manages not to get lost among the explosions. It's good, however, that he has better actors, like Elba and co-star Rinko Kikuchi, as another Jaeger pilot, to help prop him up. The acting is fine, though...

'Twilight' saga ends with a bang

...crime to the Volturi and their manic, pop-eyed, giggling leader Aro, played by Michael Sheen who is a much, much better actor than this movie might suggest. Of course, Nessie is not an Immortal Child, a fact that Irina could have easily ascertained...

Movie review: Superb acting just the start in 'Lincoln'

...Crowe, Denzel Washington; all marvelous actors, all Best Actor winners, but somehow not even in the same league with...and even moments of ruthlessness. You often hear of a good actor or actress that they do as much with their eyes as they...

Same old song and dance?

...much of an actor, and Cher, though an Oscar-winner, doesn't really do any acting in this movie. There are some good actors -- the aforementioned Tucci and Bell, as well as the incredibly talented Alan Cumming, but there's not much for...
