Russell Crowe has certainly been a name to draw in movie-goers. With films like Gladiator and 3:10 to Yuma under his belt we know that he has the acting chops to keep us locked in our seats. Paul Haggis has certainly become a name in the industry, writing such movies as Crash and Million Dollar Baby. Naturally when you find out that these two indiv... Read More

You could suppose, if you so desired, that the grand construction of humanity's unique accomplishment, the abstract model of the universe, is nothing more than the same small set of ideas remixed and rearranged over and over.  Let us say there are seven original ideas, or perhaps 94, as it is with matter.  The number is really irrelevant ...

The cast also i... Read More

Animation is an excellent tool for bringing our greatest fantasies to life. In that world our characters can truly defy gravity, face outrageous villains, or go to places unimaginable.

(Chris Rebholz)  11/02/2010 3:24 PM EDT
There are few great love stories in the world. When it comes to movies most romantic stories barely register on our radar.

There are few who could say that they do not know the story.... Read More
