Review: In Tarantino’s latest, a radiant Hollywood fable

(AP) — Quentin Tarantino has, for a while now, been reminding us what's so great about movies — or at least, what he thinks is so great about them. He's made an old-fashioned double-feature ("Death Proof," of "Grindhouse"), resurrected the wide-screen format of 70mm Ultra Panavision ("The ...

Review: ‘Elvis in Vegas’ is a gem of pop culture history

Review: Cuco brings layers to lo-fi love songs on ‘Para Mi’

‘Raised in Captivity’ reveals author’s warped imagination

(AP) — Chuck Klosterman seems like a great hang. He's the guy at the party who has everyone spitting out their drinks as they laugh while trying to swallow — the one who is never at a loss for words in a game of "Would You Rather?" It's fun to imagine the genesis of some of the stories ...

‘Lion King’ returns but it’s harder to feel the love

Life moves in a circle, "The Lion King" tells us, and, increasingly, so does studio moviemaking. Close on the heels of "live-action" remakes of "Aladdin" and "Dumbo" and on the precipice of a reborn "The Little Mermaid," ''The Lion King" is back, too. Round and round we go. Cue Savannah ...
