Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies
Sadly, I haven’t caught last week’s pick yet: “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.” However I did have the misfortune of watching the David Gordon Green comedy “The Sitter,” which turned out to be a complete dud. If you haven’t already read my review, give it a look to find out why I think Jonah Hill deserves better.

Arriving in theaters this week are the Guy Ritchie sequel “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,” the Roman Polanski parental dramedy “Carnage,” the third Chipmunks adventure “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked,” and the Roger Corman themed documentary “Corman’s World: Exploits of a...

Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin-Schwartz: When you hear the name, Martin Scorsese several things may pop into your mind... New York City, Italian Gangsters, Films about Italian Gangsters... Casino, Heat and Goodfellas, just to name a few.

Law tells Britain's Daily Express, "Well, the truth of the matter is I think it's going to happen. You only have to look back to the Spanish flu outbreak in 1919. It killed one per cent of the world's population, more than the First World War. ...

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

Um ... awwwk-ward. That's the single best word to describe this year's Oscar experiment, er, telecast. What was supposed to be a younger, hipper show, thanks to hosting duo James Franco and Anne Hathaway, turned out to be an oddly-paced few hours of jokes that fell flat, awards that offered no surprises and Gwyneth Paltrow continuing to insist we pretend she's a country singer.

The highlights: Colin Firth, as always, was a class act, Melissa Leo had a potty mouth, Trent Reznor won an Oscar and Kirk Douglas became the Betty White of the 2011 Academy Awards.
