LA Film Fest 2014 Review - Visually Stunning 'Snowpiercer' Lacks
Defying genre boundaries and playing successfully with tone has become a staple of filmmaker Bong Joon-ho. In the film "Memories of Murder" the auteur took on the traditional detective mystery, went after the monster movie with "The Host" and explored paternal responsibility with "Mother." So it’s only fitting that his latest flick "Snowpiercer" also skillfully examines separate important issues like class system and the effect of a post-apocalyptic world and turns them on their ear. But unlike the previous films from the famed Southern Korean director this one sports a mostly English la...

Chris Evans has backed off from statements he made in a recent Variety interview, saying that he has no plans on retiring from acting.

Today on Good Morning America, Evans said those statements were taken out of context, explaining, "By no means am I planning on retiring. It’s kind of a silly statement."
