Jared Leto easily stole the coveted Oscar from Cooper for his role in "Dallas Buyers Club." But we don't think he won the red carpet competition.

Leto's tux was an unusual combination of black and white with a red bow tie. We can forgive him his style choice b...

Universal's The Bourne Legacy is now available on Blu-Ray and DVD, and the home version is a worthy translation of a great major motion picture. What do you get inside the Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack edition?

It doesn't snub the previous Bourne films; rather, it establishes a compelling new hero and his story parallel to previous events, while leaving the door wide open for convergence at a later date.

Like many in Hollywood, "The Bourne Legacy" star Jeremy Renner has no love for the Kardashians.

During an interview with The Guardian he commented, "Oh, all those ridiculous people with zero talent who spend their lives making sure everyone knows their name. Those stupid, stupid people." Ouch!

In March, "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm bashed socialites Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian for making stupidity "fashionable."

Review: 'The Bourne Legacy' Stands On Its Own Merits

August 10th, 2012 7:14am EDT
The Bourne Legacy
Universal is hoping that The Bourne Legacy does well enough that it prolongs the life of the franchise - and with the finished product, the expansion of Bourne is off to a great start.

In the weeks if not months leading up to today's release, there's been a lot of talk about what Legacy isn't, and to evaluate it based on that is to short-change a film that is exactly what we go to the movies for in the summer. This movie never claimed to be a direct sequel to the existing trilogy, and to this critic's knowledge, writer/director Tony Gilroy never turned his back on Matt Damon's Jason ...

Review: 'The Bourne Legacy' Has Its Moments But Lacks Originality

August 8th, 2012 8:37am EDT
The Bourne Legacy
So what happens when Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass decide that they no longer want to be a part of the super successful franchise known as Bourne?

Do the producers say fine and walk away from their billion dollar cash cow or find another way to keep it going? Silly question, right?

Which brings us to "The Bourne Legacy," written and directed by Tony Gilroy (writer of the previous Bourne films) and starring Jeremy Renner as the new super spy who the evil CIA wants to kill. Sound familiar? Of course it does, and that's the problem.
