Review: 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' Slow, Drawn-Out And Distinctively Drab

December 6th, 2011 4:00pm EST
Tinker photo
I’m all for films that take their time. There’s nothing quite like the bravery of a picture that dares to engage by fleshing out those quiet moments and infusing character insights that longingly linger.

Problem is that in his latest outing "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" the long book and material upon which the film is based and the unrushed pacing of Alfredso...

May 22nd, 2008 11:16am EDT
Indiana Jones
(HollywoodChicago.com) – After such a long respite from the beloved film progression, I was initially just as skittish about seeing Harrison Ford back in the Indy saddle as I was watching Sylvester Stallone back in the ring in “Rocky Balboa” in his 2006 comeback and then again in 2008 in his “Rambo” return.

Ultimately, though, I had faith in director Steven Spielberg not to royally torpedo the monolithically anticipated “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” which resurrects the Chicago-born, 65-year-old Harrison Ford as one of my favorite film characters of all time.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of AARP (Let's Leave Indy in Retirement)

John Hurt
Alien actor John Hurt loves to paint when he's not making movies, but is too shy to display his creations to the public. The Oscar-nominated actor, 67, has sold some of his paintings, but doesn't believe his work is good enough to warrant an exhibition.

He says, "I enjoy art a lot and have done for many years. I am not too sure I am ready to show any of my pieces - they are figurative art - I have been asked to in the past.

"Anyway I am not sure I would have enough for an art exhibition of my own - some pieces I have sold and given away but so many more I have destroyed through ar...
