Burbank-based Trekkers mostly missed out on a great afternoon event this past Sunday, as Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry, son of “Star Trek” creator Gene, screened his documentary “Trek Nation” at the Burbank Film Festival...
You could say a military life was in the Arrington family's blood, but though his father served on nuclear submarines, Randy Arrington found his calling far above sea level as an attack pilot. The same holds true for Hollywood: Arrington's father...
It's safe to say that Gareth Huw Evans is the greatest Welsh director of Indonesian action films. Sony Classics picked up his second feature, “The Raid: Redemption,” to the cheers of Asian-action fans. The story is about a SWAT team sent on...
In 1954, Japan's Toho studio made three films that achieved enduring international success. The first was Akira Kurosawa's “Seven Samurai,” which shows up within the top 10 of nearly every international critics' poll. The second was “...
Alfred Hitchcock's very free 1935 adaptation of John Buchan's novel was almost certainly the calling card that got him invited to make films in America. As a work of pure entertainment, it out-Hollywoods Hollywood. The plot is that of a thriller. But...
Who doesn't have a soft spot for Andy Griffith (who died last Tuesday)? You'd have to be pretty immune to benevolent paternalism to resist the down-home charm of Andy Taylor or most of the other roles he created. Griffith's career thrived primarily on...

Bob Lambert, a widely respected entertainment industry executive who played a pivotal role in the advent of computer animation, died of undisclosed causes Friday at his home in Glendale, his family announced Monday night. He was 55. Lambert served as...
Writer/director Gary Ross' adaptation of Suzanne Collins' hugely popular novel — a teen book that crossed over to the adult market — is one of this year's nicest surprises so far. Lionsgate's video release is also a pleasant surprise: They'...
