  1. 'Planet of the Apes' thumps chest with $73M debut

    New York — 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' thumped its chest at the box office with a $73 million opening weekend.

  2. Top 10 films of 2014 — so far

    Although it does happen, it's rare when Oscar fare emerges in the first half of the year. However, that doesn't mean the first half of the year was all garbage; far from it.

  3. 'Strain' TV show comes from novel, comics still in production

    No one has suffered more than artist Mike Huddleston. Artists put in more man-hours on a comic book project than any other member of the creative team, and for Huddleston that's meant three years of his professional life.

  4. Review: 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' hits new genre heights

    'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' is the sequel to a prequel to a long line of films that date back to 1968. But it's doubtful any of those films could come close to matching the visual spectacle and Shakespearean interplay.

  5. Review: 'Third Person' offers strong stories of shattered families

    There's a sense of despair, of something broken beyond repair, in the intricate 'Third Person,' written and directed by Paul Haggis, writer-director of the Oscar-winning 'Crash.'

  6. Review: Touching 'Hellion' follows a shattered family on the verge

    Director Kat Chandler never lets 'Hellion' become a fable of cheap redemption. In fact, the pain that drives the film seems to be contagious, leading to a harrowing confrontation of messed-up kids.

  7. Review: Cage's 'Rage' is rotten from beginning to end

    'Rage' is a relentless mess of a film, moving from stilted dialogue to countless scenes of senseless violence with plenty of irrelevant side stories along the way.

  8. Doomsday scenarios: Apocalyptic culture preys on our worst fears again and again

    The end is near. It's at your local movie theater, it's on your TV. It's streaming into your computer, on your phone, on your tablet. Apocalyptic culture — books, movies, TV shows that deal with the end of civilization or the world — seems to be coming at us non-stop.
