We got a chance recently to chat with the iconic actor about some of his past work (up next week!) and one flick came up in particular.

Today it’s all about a beaten, weathered, and sullen man who when properly pushed proves that you can’t count a lethal man out. Denzel Wa...

Things were pretty busy for me last week, since I had the chance to see three of the films premiering and interview the writer and director for one of them. I saw “Paul,” “Limitless,” and “The Lincoln Lawyer,” all of which were reasonably enjoyable.

Check out my reviews of “Paul” and “Limitless” if you have not already and definitely read my interview with writer Leslie Dixon and director Neil Burger, for their movie “Limitless.”

I haven’t posted a review of “The Lincoln Lawyer” yet, so I’ll summarize my thoughts for you as usual. Even as a shyster attorney, who makes a living defe...

The movie star tells EW.com, "I called him (Rudin) up and said, 'I'm planning o...
