Reframing familiar literary characters is not a new idea; think The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Once Upon a Time, even Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. But Bill Condon’s Mr. Holmes, which stars Ian McKellen as an aging Sherlock, offers an unusually thoughtful take on the concept.
Looks like the animated-to-live-action Disney movie-making factory isn't going to close yet. After Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent, Cinderella and The Jungle Book comes a Beauty and the Beast live-action translation. But does this mean the servants will all be live-action talking utensils?
I realized it about a quarter of the way into Breaking Dawn, Part 2, the fifth and final movie in the Twilight movie saga. I was watching a porn flick. I don't mean that people were getting it on in improbable ways with even more improbable amounts of stamina. I mean the stilted dialogue whose entire purpose is to…
The movie version of the Twilight saga comes to an end tomorrow — with quite possibly the biggest vampire smackdown ever committed to film.

Bill Condon is one of the greatest living directors, on the strength of Gods and Monsters, Kinsey and Dreamgirls. So why on Earth would he choose to film the ultra-weird conclusion to Stephenie Meyer's paranormal soap opera Twilight?
We got to see three new scenes from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 — including naked Bella and Edward! And Jacob crossing the one line you never expected him to cross.
Salmon Fishing In The Yemen by Paul Today completely blew me away with its story of a scientist who's hired to introduce salmon into the wadi, so the Yemenis can go fly-fishing. Now it'll be a movie starring Ewan McGregor.
The fourth chapter of Stephenie Meyer's werewolves v. vampires v. high school girls saga is hitting theaters late next year.
