Tom Cruise Meets His Match; Emily Blunt Kicks Ass in Edge of Tomorrow 2

Tom Cruise Meets His Match; Emily Blunt Kicks Ass in Edge of Tomorrow

Tom Cruise’s new movie “Edge Of Tomorrow” is one of the best things he’s ever done on film, thanks to Director Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity”). But Emily Blunt steals the picture. It’s her first action role, and she comes across as one major bad ass. And that’s saying a lot given Cruise’s usual over-the-top performance. It’s on par with his roles in “The Color of Money” and “The Fourth Of July.” Acting stalwarts Bill Paxton and Brendan Gleeson are superb here as well....
Jennifer Aniston, We're the Millers a Perfect Mix of Sizzle, Snark 6

Jennifer Aniston, We’re the Millers a Perfect Mix of Sizzle, Snark

Jennifer Aniston, at 44, is amazing in her hard-core strip scene in her new movie “We’re The Millers.” It’s a revelatory moment for the actress; it sort of fits in with the narrative, but at the same time, deserves its own movie. You can’t take your eyes off her. In the new film, which veers between “Hangover 1″ and “National Lampoon’s Vacation,” Sudeikis’ character, drug dealer David Clark, puts together a fake family to disguise a drug-run to Mexico as a family vacation. He recruits stripper Sarah “Rose” O’Reilly (Aniston) to play his wife, while street urchin Casey Mathis (Emma Roberts) and nerdy neighbor Kenny Rossmore (Will Poulter), play the children....

Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard Go Deep in ‘Lovelace’

One thing’s certainly evident by the end of “Lovelace.” the movie’s stars, Amanda Seyfried and Peter Skarsgaard, deliver the very best cinematic performances of the year. Hollywood was reluctant to make this movie, but it is, without question, an example of Tinseltown at its best. I am of the age that I can recall when the whole “Deep Throat” cause-celeb was very much in vogue. Talk-show king Johnny Carson and Bob Hope joked about it. Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner, played by James Franco, applauded it. But in the end, her life took a tragic turn. ...

Man of Steel: Script So-So, But Great Acting Lifts Film

“Man of Steel” is a stunningly good story… for the first third of the movie. It’s punctuated by great performances from Henry Cavill, Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, and Amy Adams. Costner’s so good as Superman’s earth dad, he could nab a Best Supporting Oscar nom....

Mad Men: Don Gets Stoned; Betty Deals With Bloat

“Mad Men” came back strong last night with its second episode of season 5, called “Tea Leaves.” The commercial breaks didn’t seem as dreadful as they did in the two-hour season premiere last week, which was bloated and I think a tad indulgent–even more so than usual. The episode opened with the image of a clearly bloated Betty (who wasn’t even seen in the open); a scene any true-blue viewer won’t soon forget. January Jones didn’t look herself....
