  4. Review: Parents, get ready to explain the miracle of life to kids after 'Storks'

    Movies

    Parents have more explaining to do after Storks, a breezy animated exaggeration of where babies come from. Rather, where they came from before online shopping turned these nursing birds into delivery drones.

  5. Review: 'The Magnificent Seven' is a real rip-snorter with enormous personality

    Movies

    Westerns haven't tried to simply be fun in years. Too preoccupied with dark history and making amends, what John Ford would call rebranding the legend. That almost isn't the case with The Magnificent Seven.

    Denzel Washington, center, stars as Sam Chisolm in the fun-to-watch western The Magnificent Seven.

  7. Review: Dear diary, watched 'Bridget Jones's Baby,' laughed much (w/video)

    Movies

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that Bridget Jones fans are loyal. And it is probably true that some felt anxiety going into Bridget Jones's Baby, the third big screen turn for our beloved Bridge.

    A single-again-at-43 Bridget (Ren?e Zellweger) is pregnant by either Jack Qwant (Patrick Dempsey) or Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) and has to figure out which.
  8. Review: The only thing scary is how bad 'Blair Witch' is

    Movies

    Blair Witch is blasphemy, taking in vain the name of a landmark exercise in horror, 1999's The Blair Witch Project.

    Valorie Curry plays Talia, one of a group who finds footage that may show what happened to Heather in the original. The sequel claims found footage as well, but looks nothing like it.

  10. Review: 'Snowden' is Oliver Stone's return to relevance

    Movies

    Oliver Stone hasn't sunk his cinematic teeth into an American outrage since Nixon, so the saga of Edward Snowden offers a return to patriotic dissent form.

  12. Tom Hanks talks diversity in Hollywood and 'Sully' at Telluride

    Movies

    TELLURIDE, CO. — The optics weren't flattering, until Tom Hanks put the picture in focus, with his energetic blend of levity and perspective.

    Tom Hanks’ role as pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, who saved all aboard by landing an airliner on the Hudson River, earned his place at a Telluride Film Festival panel on heroism.
  13. Iconic entertainer and former St. Petersburg resident Lady Chablis dies in Savannah

    Human Interest

    SAVANNAH, Ga. — The Lady Chablis, the transgender performer who became an unlikely celebrity for her role in the 1994 best-seller Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, died Thursday in Savannah. She was 59.

  14. Review: 'Sully' is about a great guy, but that doesn't carry a movie

    Movies

    Chesley Sullenberger's life, and certainly his finest 208 seconds as a pilot, don't need to be ginned up. Here's an unfathomably decent person by all accounts, who in 2009 landed a crippled commercial jet on New York's Hudson River, saving everyone aboard.

    Tom Hanks is predictably effective as pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger in Clint Eastwood’s film.
