June 4th, 2012 1:02pm EDT
Prometheus
Arriving in theaters this week are Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated sci-fi vehicle “Prometheus,” the silly computer animated sequel “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted,” the coming-of-age comedy “Lola Versus,” the indie time travel comedy “Safety Not Guaranteed,” the period piece drama “Bel Ami,” the family relationship dramedy “Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding,” and Todd Solondz’s drama “Dark Horse.”

Unfortunately my pick from last week, “Snow White and the Huntsman,” was plagued by bad acting, lackluster action scenes, and farfetched concepts even for a fairy tale. Not only was it diff...

Review/Interview: A Little Layered Ludivine Makes 'Love Crime' A Must See

September 2nd, 2011 12:45pm EDT
Love Crime photo
It’s often said that the worse the antagonist of a film is, especially in a revenge picture, the better the movie. Though it would appear in the effective French import "Love Crime" that quite the opposite is true. There is a decent enough baddie here to push the innocent envelope, but it’s the multi-faceted victim who provides the work that would truly be the crime to miss.

Young and naïve assistant Isabelle is a hard working up and comer who is taken under the wing of senior executive Christine. At first Isabelle is happy to learn and carry the bulk of the workload under the teaching ...

When it comes to both sex appeal and charisma in film, nobody is more exciting than French actress Ludivine Sagnier. From her turn as a sexy siren with a mysterious past in "Swimming Pool" to portraying the lady love of crazed criminal Vincent Cassel in the "Mesrine" films, Sagnier has already made more than thirty films in her still rising career. Her latest is a French thriller titled "Love Crime" (which played in the International Showcase section of the LA Film Fest 2011!) and has Sagnier playing a pushed-over-the-edge assistant to mean maniacal boss Kristin Scott Thomas.

Thomas,_Kristin_Scott
Kristin Scott Thomas prefers making films in France because she's convinced movie bosses in her native Britain are too "terrified" to cast older women in leading roles.

The English Patient star was born in Cornwall, England but has gained French nationality since moving to the country when she was a teenager.

And the 50 year old admits she has become disillusioned with the British film industry, where mature actresses are snubbed in favor of younger stars.

Scott Thomas tells Easy Living magazine, "I think it's because England tends to follow America so strongly or they're making fi...

Hint: it involves giant robots, and it's not "Transformers 2."

Opening in cinemas this week are "Terminator Salvation," "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian," "Dance Flick," "Easy Virtue," "The Girlfriend Experience," and "The Boys: The Sherman Brothers...

Woody Harrelson
Woody Harrelson is to play gay as an ageing bisexual escort in what is being touted as the follow-up to cult 1980 film American Gigolo. The star will pick up where Richard Gere's seedy character left off, playing an escort of Washington, D.C., socialites with a gay lover waiting for him at home.

Writer/director Paul Shrader admits "The Walker" is a continuation of American Gigolo. He says, "His gifts are now more social than sexual."

Shrader accepts the choice of Harrelson may be a surprise to some: "This will be quite a transformation for him, from the hairpiece and his manner ...
