Rubin said in a statement he may have been referencing a Captain America: Winter Soldier commercial from the big game, which features Jackson as Nick Fury, but he still owns up to his mistake. He writes, "We start...

Great premise. Great beginning. But unfortunately, that's not enough to make a great film.

'Contagion' directed by Steven Soderbergh and written by Scott Z Burns (The Informant) succeeds in showing us how fast a virus can spread. It also makes you think that becoming an agoraphobi...

I’m not old, but I am mature. I’m not in the let’s-go-clubbin’-this-Saturday-night set, but I’m still in the coveted demographic that advertisers like. I’m old enough to remember when vampires were scary—not hot. And I do have those wonderful memories of big, boxy television consoles with three major networks and some local stations with really bad programming. Color television shows were a major big deal, so much so that announcers would actually let you know—“The F.B.I.— in color!” That was probably because not a lot of folks had a color TV set. It’s also cool to see how the physical tele...
