'This town ain't big enough fer the both uv us.' Actually, there was supposed to be enough room at the multiplex for both a new Western aimed at grown-ups ('The Magnificent Seven') and the first new kiddie cartoon in months ('Storks'). Expectations for b

The Emmys are often slow to recognize newer shows and performances and tend to reward old favorites long after they've jumped the shark. Nonetheless, at Sunday night's 68th Annual Primetime Emmys, there were still some unexpected winners and some odds-on

Happy 35th Anniversary, "Mommie Dearest."
Before she died in 1977, Joan Crawford reportedly said that, if a movie were ever made from her life, Faye Dunaway was the only actress who could do the role justice. But 'Mommie Dearest' was certainly not the biopic she had in mind. Based on the 1978 me

In the end, everyone was wrong. With 'Don't Breathe' and 'Suicide Squad' maintaining their death grips on the top two slots at the box office, the slugfest this Labor Day weekend was for third place, and it was anybody's guess which of the two new wide r

One last surprise at the box office as the summer winds down.
Like the three burglars in 'Don't Breathe,' box office experts expected to find a windfall when the new horror thriller opened this weekend, but they weren't sure how big it would be. After all, it's a low-budget film with no stars, dropping in at the bi

It was the Battle of the Long-Gestating Sequels That No One Asked For. It pitted 'Blair Witch' against 'Bridget Jones's Baby,' the first new film in that franchise in 12 years. In the end, however, both new movies lost. Anticipation was high, since both

Talk about sticking the landing. Going into this weekend, box office experts expected 'Sully' and 'When the Bough Breaks' to premiere with a combined $50 million and split it about evenly. 'Sully,' after all, recalled Tom Hanks's other recent tale of re

"Jeepers Creepers" turns 15.
No one expected much from 'Jeepers Creepers' when it was released 15 years ago this week, on August 31, 2001. It was a low-budget horror film with no star power, being released at the bitter end of the summer dog days. Yet, it made a star out of Justin L
