After eight years of legal battle with the entertainment industry, Kaleidescape has found a friend in Hollywood. Starting Tuesday, the manufacturer of high-end media servers will sell movies and television shows from Warner Bros., a first-of-its-kind...
Warner Bros. will manage most of Paramount's movie library on DVD, in a first-of-its-kind deal between major studios that reflects the ongoing decline in disc sales. The companies said Thursday that Warner will handle more than 600 titles from Paramount'...
John Barth surely ranks among the least screen-adaptable modern (or, perhaps, postmodern) American novelists. His stories are about themselves; the words, their own subject. It's not surprising that only one of his books has made it to the big screen....
The Who released their “Quadrophenia” double album in 1973; six years later, they collaborated with director Franc Roddam (“The Bride,” “The Lords of Discipline”) on a film version — now newly restored and being...

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 “...

As I remarked in my review of the theatrical release of “21 Jump Street”, this feature revival/spoof of the ‘80s TV show is better than it has any right to be. It may be dumb, but it's good dumb, mixing very broad shtick with clever...
This overly violent but otherwise frequently enjoyable film showed up briefly in theaters more than a year ago, to little notice. It may have suffered from comparison to “Red,” the Bruce Willis/Helen Mirren/Morgan Freeman/John Malkovich action...
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'...
Five months after its release, “The Hunger Games” remains one of the most satisfying Hollywood productions of the year. Have yourself a great time with the new DVD/Blu-ray release, but when you're done, you might enjoy a look at the great-...
Netflix is joining Redbox in defying Walt Disney Studios' attempt to stop DVD rentals for four weeks after the discs go on sale. Disney recently decided not to provide its discs to the nation's largest rental companies until 28 days after they hit...
