Lets turn the clock back 30 years ago to 1984 - Here are a few highlights form that year: Ronald Reagan was elected to his second term as President of the United States, the Space Shuttle Discovery had its first maiden voyage, the Aids Virus was identified, the first Apple Macintosh went on sale, CD players (now pretty much defunct) were introduced commercially, and ...

Tim McGraw stars in a movie about a country superstar. He does not play the country superstar. He doesn’t even sing in the movie. Country Strong is about the fall and rise of Kelly Canter (Gwyneth Paltrow). McGraw plays her manager and husband James, who pushes her on a comeback tour before she even finishes rehab.

James may represent the dark side of the business, certainly when it comes to neglecting his wife’s health. In real life, McGraw is happy and friendly. He’s married to Faith Hill and starred in last year’s blockbuster film The Blind Side. McGraw shared his side of the country mu...

A representative for Garrett Hedlund has vehemently denied the Tron: Legacy star has been caught on camera puffing on a cannabis joint - insisting the actor "would never smoke pot in front of" photographers.

The 26 year old was pictured smoking a large, rolled up cigarette in a video back in August while he was filming new movie On The Road with Kristen Stewart in Montreal, Canada.

The film centers on a fallen country star (Gwyneth Paltrow), who strives to resurrect her ailing career with a little help from her supportive husband (Tim McGraw), an ambitious young songwriter (Garrett Hedlund), and an emerging country artist (Leighton Meester) with a rapidly growing f...

Review: 'Tron: Legacy' Game On!

12/15/2010 1:10pm EST
In the 28 years it took for “Tron: Legacy” to reach your local Theater or IMAX screen, Communism fell, Al Gore invented the Internet and discovered global warming, and the idea of a movie based around video games became less of a “WTF”. The original “Tron”, for me, was always elusive. Every now and then I'd catch a half hour here, twenty minutes there, always on late night TV, but never had I seen the entire film.

This did not stop me from engorging myself on the Sequel. This movie is the visuals, and they deliver. They deliver in so many ways it's impossible to describe. For all the award...

Tron Legacy
Last Thursday I saw “I Love You Philip Morris” starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor. This film, which is written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and Jon Requa, the team behind “Bad Santa,” advertises itself as a funny movie; however it leans more dramatic than expected. Most of the hilarious lines are spoiled by the trailer, so when you get a chance to see the whole product, you’ll find yourself a bit let down.

Both Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor are incredibly convincing as a gay couple from the manner of their speaking down to the body language that they use. Their story is one that pull...

Olivia Wilde talks about her "Tron Legacy" character Quorra's revealing skintight suit.

She explains, "I saw the boobs on the suit and I said, 'Oh, hell no. I'm doing kicks and backflips in this thing?' We modeled the character on Joan of Arc but with the hair of Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs."

The Master Control Program is booted back up in the revamped "Tron" continuation that sees the return of original star Jeff Bridges as Kevin Flynn, the brilliant computer programmer whose disappearance leads his son, Sam (Garrett Hedlund), to search for him in and out of the computer world.

The difference between technology from Tron to Tron Legacy is stick figures to fully populated cities. All that fancy stuff doesn't make it any easier to save the cyber world though. The young stars of Tron Legacy still had to wear complicated light suits that made basic scene work exhausting.

"Once in the Tron world we wear this very technical suit," said Garrett Hedlund. "That's fantastic and it looks amazing every time it's on screen, especially in 3-D, but for two months straight, all day, every day, and being in this you start to forget what it was like to film a film with just jean...
