  1. Bollywood's 'Happy New Year' releases for Diwali

    Movies

    When holiday weekends roll around in the United States, it seems like everyone and their brother makes a movie.

    The would-be diamond thieves in Happy New Year use a dance competition as a cover.
  2. Review: 'Fury' with Brad Pitt more blood and guts than glory (w/video)

    Movies

    "It will end, soon. But before it does a lot more people have to die."

    Brad Pitt plays Sgt. Don “Wardaddy” Collier, a World War II tank commander who is brutal without charm, introduced in a very violent movie by stabbing an enemy in the eye socket.
  3. Review: 'Book of Life' is full of surprises (w/video)

    Movies

    Sometimes just being different is all it takes. That's the case with The Book of Life, an animated movie that when stripped of its wildly imaginative sights and sounds delivers the same tired lessons of being yourself and following your dreams, set to radio-tired pop songs.

    Manolo, voiced by Diego Luna, woos the independent Maria, voiced by Zoe Saldana, in The Book of Life.
  4. Review: ‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day' is just mediocre (w/video)

    Movies

    The best thing about Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is that it doesn't live down to its title. It is merely mediocre, which when it comes to shelling out today's ticket prices is just as bad.

    Wacky pandemonium — just not enough — ensues when bad-luck-prone Alexander, left, wishes his family knew what a lousy day feels like in Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.
  5. Review: Mixed verdict for 'The Judge'

    Movies

    Of all the objections raised to The Judge, acting intensity certainly isn't one of them. The reason this overstuffed movie remains tolerable is the inspired casting of Robert Duvall and Robert Downey Jr. as a combative father and son, and their determination to out-thespian each other.

    Robert Downey Jr. plays a high-priced lawyer who defends his small-town judge father, Robert Duvall.
  6. Bryan Cranston to star in 'Infiltrator,' filming in Tampa

    Movies

    Tampa is breaking back into movies, and breaking bad with a star.

    Bryan Cranston, famous for his role as Walter White on Breaking Bad, will play Robert Mazur, a former DEA agent.
  7. Review: Just pray for 'Left Behind' to be over

    Movies

    The spiritual lesson of the Rapture disaster Left Behind is simple: If actors pray enough, they can get out of this movie.

    With Nicolas Cage as your pilot in Left Behind, what could possibly go wrong?
  8. University of Tampa graduate screening his 'Invisible Man' movie in Tampa

    Movies

    Now you'll see him and then you won't. A modern-day version of H.G. Wells' The Invisible Man is showing one time only tonight, at Muvico Starlight 20 in Tampa. It's the latest example of how some independent filmmakers without distribution deals beg attention these days, renting a theater auditorium on an off …

  9. Review: 'The Good Lie' is not what you think

    Movies

    Movies about cooperating Africans and Americans often take a condescending risk of great white saviors making everything better for poor black folks. The Good Lie isn't that sort of movie, except in its marketing.

    From left, Arnold Oceng, Reese Witherspoon and Sarah Baker appear in a scene from The Good Lie.
  10. Review: 'Gone Girl' lives up to the book (w/video)

    Movies

    Gillian Flynn's twisty novel Gone Girl was a movie waiting to happen, practically smelling of popcorn with each compulsively turned page. It's less of a whodunit than a whodunwhat that's easier to spoil than egg salad at a picnic, so we'll tread lightly.

    Rosamund Pike is Amy Dunne, whose disappearance turns her husband, played by Ben Affleck, into a murder suspect in Gone Girl.
