Drama palpable in 'Argo'

Iran is our enemy. I mean, that's pretty well accepted by most people of either political persuasion. Granted, it's a simplistic view of a complicated and diverse group of people - one of the youngest populations in the Middle East, but as a practical matter, the basic national interests of the country seem to run counter to ours, and we're at odds. Fine.

And the award goes to ...

I read a lot of movie-geek kind of news -- different blogs and websites filled with mostly nonsense about the latest slasher movie or some little seen Japanese anime film finally getting a U.S. release at one theater in Austin. The guys who work for these sites tend to consider themselves pure and unfettered by corporate considerations and unswayed by the bloviating opinions of the mainstream critics. They are, for the most part, adequate writers with a few very interesting, cogent opinions on film, but mostly they're irritating.

'Apes' impresses human: remake has confidence, maturity

When I was a kid, I was a huge fan of the original "Planet of the Apes." I thought it was just because there were cool guys in monkey costumes, not to mention the scantily clad slave girl, Nova. At twelve, that was about as far as I took it. But as I got older, I realized the movie is a lot deeper and carries much broader implications than I originally thought.

Oblivion

Now Playing Synopsis: A solitary drone repairman working on a war-ravaged planet Earth becomes humanity's last hope for survival in this ambitious sci-fi epic from Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski, and Rise of the Planet of the Apes producer Peter Chernin. In the distant future, Earth has been decimated by an intergalactic battle against an alien race known as the Scavs. The majority of mankind has been evacuated, leaving just a few solitary drone repairmen remaining on the planet's surface. Their job is simple -- stand guard over the ruins of a once-great empire by patrolling the skies, and ensuring the drones continue to function. Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) is nearing the end of his mission to extract resources essential to the survival of the human race when he witnesses a spacecraft fall from the sky. Upon investigating, Jack discovers the capsule contains a mysterious woman. With mission control watching his every move from high up above the clouds, Jack embarks on a spectacular adventure that will not only challenge everything he's been taught about mankind's most defining battle, but perhaps alter the entire course of human history as well. Olga Kurylenko and Morgan Freeman co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko, Morgan Freeman, Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Melissa Leo Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
