  6. Review: In 'The Age of Adaline', ageless Blake Lively gets old fast

    Movies

    Poor Adaline Bowman, sentenced to an eternity of looking like Blake Lively, by a movie premise more preposterous than anything Vin Diesel tried lately. Thanks to scientific hoo-hah that won't be discovered until 2035, Adaline never ages.

    Her movie gets old quickly.

    Blake Lively and Michiel Huisman star in this lunkheaded fantasy romance in which Adaline doesn’t age after 29.

  8. Review: 'Ex Machina' intelligently explores feminism in a sci-fi setting

    Movies

    Alex Garland's Ex Machina is a fascinating addition to the sci-fi trend of science feminism, in which concepts of womanhood in patriarchal culture are explored far deeper than Ripley battling aliens in her underwear.

    Domhnall Gleeson plays Caleb, brought into a mad scientist’s designs on artificial intelligence, in Alex Garland’s directorial debut.
  9. Greg Sestero talks cult classic movie 'The Room'

    Movies

  10. Opening Friday: 'The Age of Adaline'

    Movies

    Staying 29 years old forever isn't all it's cracked up to be for the heroine of The Age of Adaline (PG-13). Sure, she can look like Blake Lively forever but Ryan Reynolds doesn't come with the package. Long-term romance is hard when you could wind up both as a cougar and a PYT for the same guy.

    Michiel Huisman and Blake Lively co-star in The Age of Adaline.

  12. Review: 'True Story' is remarkably literate cat-and-mouse game

    Movies

    True Story is stranger than fiction, which is what got Michael Finkel fired in the first place. As a New York Times reporter, Finkel was entrusted to write the truth. He blew it in 2001, passing off a composite character as one real victim.

    In an adaptation of, well, a true story, Jonah Hill plays journalist Mike Finkel and James Franco plays murderer Christian Longo, forming a prickly jailhouse partnership in True Story.
  13. HBO's Scientology documentary 'Going Clear' is one of its most popular ever (w/video)

    Movies

    NEW YORK — If the Church of Scientology was hoping that HBO's withering documentary on the religion's practices would pass by with little notice, that turned out to be a miscalculation.

    One of Scientology's signature buildings at its Pacific Area Command Base in Los Angeles is sometimes referred to as "Big Blue.''
  14. John Travolta presents 'The Forger' at Clearwater's Capitol Theatre (w/trailer)

    Movies

    John Travolta plays Raymond Cutter, an art forger attempting to steal a Monet painting, in The Forger.
