Tom Cruise
After finishing up his stint in Boston, Mass., filming the new movie "Knight and Day" co-starring Cameron Diaz, Tom Cruise thanked the city for its kindness and he reminisced about his runs along the St. Charles River. While there's no "St." in Charles, just like the pink and yellow polka-dotted sweater Grandma gave you for Christmas last year, it's the thought that counts.

With A-list films such as "The Proposal," "The Departed" and the upcoming Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale movie "The Fighter" being filmed in Boston and its surrounding cities over the past few years, it's clear that ...

Betty White Has Still Got It - SNL Better Recognize

Betty White Has Still Got It
Who would have thought Betty White would have been a relevant pop culture reference come 2010? Sure she's been immortalized in American television history for her role as "Rose" on the award winning show, "The Golden Girls", which ran from 1985-1992, but now Facebook? Hollywood is always about who's younger and who's hotter, so how can we explain the rise of the Great White?

Well for starters, Mz. White is a maverick and mavericks, to paraphrase Sarah Palin, another aging hot rod, never follow the rules because that's "not mavericky" after all. Post "The Golden Girls" era, Betty cam...

Is Excessive CGI And No Plot Becoming A Trend In Movies?

9/10/2009 11:14am EDT
Transformers 2
A few weeks ago I got to see 15 minutes of James Cameron's "Avatar" on the IMAX in 3D, and it was some of the best CGI ever seen on the big screen. For years Cameron has promised a big comeback and at least visually this movie looks like it will truly deliver when it comes out in December. And yet ... what little they revealed of the plot felt contrived, and the dialogue was stiff. A soldier sneaking undercover in another society and then falling in love with this new culture and trying to make peace between the two nations. Viewers have seen that before, but what makes "Avatar" different h...

TV is back, football is back, and summer movie season is finally at its end. Yes, no more summer movies, no more endless weekends filled with event films that shatter theater speakers and routinely melt screens with too much rambunctious action. It's a thankful end to a season that routine...

Sarah's Cinema Musings: This Summer's Hits & Misses

Ok, we are almost through the summer season of film, and I, for one, feel like I am trying to resuscitate an almost dead corpse. Sure, there were hits, good films, and technical blockbuster hits, but were they really great or just great within their summer context?

The Blockbusters

Just because a movie generates revenue at the box office does not necessarily translate into a successful well-loved film. X-Men Origins: Wolverine for instance, didn't exactly start the season off with a bang. Star Trek was loved by both fans and non-fans; something that was a bit of a worry before th...

Celebrities Who Get Naked On Screen: A Thin Line Between Classy & Trashy

6/19/2009 10:09am EDT
Halle Berry
Hollywood royalty used to use body doubles for filming sex scenes in their films; the thought of them baring it all was almost a joke. But as sex and nudity have taken a more artsy approach on screen, celebrities are jumping at the chance to take their careers to a more risqué level...

Yet, baring it all in films is a very touchy subject with actors. This is a topic young Hollywood and wannabe actors can't seem to grasp. If you are an established actor and nudity is done in good taste, it's viewed by most people as classy. But if you're just starting out, you don't want to be known as ...
