Check Out 'Ice Age: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs' On DVD & Blu-Ray Oct. 27

10/27/2009 7:39am EDT
Ice Age 3
Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs opens with Manny (Ray Romano) and his mate Ellie (Queen Latifah) expecting a baby mammoth. Unfortunately, this makes Sid the sloth (John Leguizamo) and Diego the saber-toothed tiger (Denis Leary) feel left out.

Diego, who worries he’s losing his edge, decides to head out on his own, while Sid adopts three suspiciously large eggs that he’s found through a crack in the ice. The eggs turn out to be dinosaur eggs from a pre-mammalian underworld, and then mama T-Rex comes to rescue her rambunctious little ones.

The gang ventures into a mysterious undergroun...

Summer Movie Awards Part 1: Surprise Hit, Biggest Bombs & More

G.I. Joe
Now that Labor Day has come and gone, the official end to summer has now passed. Yes, the days will now be shorter, the weather cooler (unless you're smart enough to live in Southern California like this column's scribe), and for some school resuming its session, but there's also a lot of good news.

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...

Larry David Talks 'Curb Your Enthusiasm's' Upcoming Season

Larry David
Larry David is a movie star now with a lead role in Woody Allen's Whatever Works. He memorizes lines and everything, but now he's going back to shoot his HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm. Even though he's gone Hollywood, he can still get back into character as Larry David.

"I don't see why not," David said. "Yeah, I was comfortable, I was comfortable, it was not a big stretch to do the part."

The seventh season will pick up right where season six left off, mimicking a bit of David's real life. "My marriage to Cheryl on the show, well, we split up last season, remember? I'm with Vivica ...

Larry David's Character On 'Curb' Is Normal Compared To 'Whatever Works'

6/17/2009 10:32am EDT
Whatever Works
Woody Allen decided Larry David should play his latest neurotic intellectual character in Whatever Works. Boris Yellnikoff is a Nobel Prize nominee who knows so much, he can only complain about life. Sound familiar?

"Let's see, the character on Curb [Your Enthusiasm] is normal I think compared to this guy," David said. "The character on Curb actually wants relationships and sex and things like that. I don't know, he seems very normal compared to this guy. This guy is way out [there]. This guy wears shorts. Never would the character on Curb were shorts or would the person talking to you r...

Review: Woody Allen's 'Whatever Works' Is Disappointing

6/16/2009 2:04pm EDT
Whatever Works
When I first heard that Larry David would be starring in Woody Allen's next film, "Whatever Works," I immediately thought this was dream casting. I mean, who better to spout out Woody Allen's monologues than Larry David? Both have been tagged with that moniker, Neurotic Jewish Comedian, how could this fail? I saw this film a couple of weeks ago and I've been trying to wrap my head around the reasons why I didn't enjoy this film ever since. Finally, at the press conference, where Woody Allen and Larry David were sitting right next to each other, it hit me: These two guys are absolutely nothi...

Woody Allen, Larry David, Evan Rachel Wood & Others Discuss 'Whatever Works'

6/16/2009 10:00am EDT
Whatever Works
Woody Allen, Larry David, Patricia Clarkson and Evan Rachel Wood sat down to discuss their new film, "Whatever Works," in theaters June 19. I asked Woody if any changes were made to the script -- a script he wrote in the 1970's -- with the casting of Larry David and asked Larry if he ever felt too much "Larry David" was ever coming out in his performance. Also discussed is their love -- or in Larry David's case, disdain, -- for New York and the slim possibilities that a Woody Allen film will ever be adapted for Broadway.

Mike: When Larry David was cast, did you re-write anything to take ...

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

6/15/2009 9:02am EDT
Year One
I finally got around to seeing "Terminator Salvation," and I must admit I wasn't terribly impressed. Overall the film was better than "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," but that doesn't say a whole lot because "T3" was pretty bad. Sam Worthington and Anton Yelchin were great, while Christian Bale gave an okay performance. I was expecting a more epic movie considering all its hype.

This week there are five films premiering: "Year One," "The Proposal," "Whatever Works," "Food Inc," and "Dead Snow." There are three I think are worth seeing, and two I think you should wait to rent.
