This week: Tom Hanks and Halle Berry play several different characters over many lifetimes in the beyond-ambitious time-traversing think piece "Cloud Atlas," written and directed by the Wachowski siblings and Tom Tykwer.

Greetings from the apocalypse! This was a scary-ass week for my homies in Boston. Why we gotta blow each other up, people? If we keep exploding ourselves all we'll wind up with is Charlton Heston screaming at the Statue of Liberty. Truth. Love, peace and chicken grease, y'all. Now, movies … Get More »
This week: Bill Murray as President Franklin D. Roosevelt is the highlight of "Hyde Park on Hudson," which should in no way be considered a historically accurate account of FDR's meeting with the King and Queen of England in 1939.
Also new this week are two Criterion Collection Blu-ray debuts: Laurence Olivier's "Richard III" ("My kingdom for a horse!") and David Cronenberg's "Naked Lunch" ("Exterminate all rational thought"). Get More »

'Tis the season, y'all. And we're not just talking about colored lights and carols. We're talking about presents.
Of course, after a year filled with "The Hunger Games," "Star Wars" news and "The Hobbit" anticipation, we searched high and low for the coolest stuff from the coolest movies, including those three and loads more. And we came up with 50 things every movie lover really must have.

Now we wish Bill Murray was an Oscar contender every year, since he's apparently pulling out all the stops while out promoting his performance as FDR in "Hyde Park on Hudson."
Case in point: The man's wild entrance on "Late Night With David Letterman" last night. When Letterman introduced him, they cut to a vehicle pulling up outside the Ed Sullivan Theater where two suspicious looking gentlemen in suits pulled Murray out of the trunk with a black bag over his head and then forced the comedian into his guest spot with a tazer.

In 2003, William James Murray (better known to those who haven't spent hours reading his Wikipedia page as Bill Murray) starred in Sofia Coppola's "Lost in Translation," a poignant, somber romantic comedy that spotlighted the budding relationship between an aging film star (Murray) and the lonely wife of a photographer (Scarlett Johansson) in Tokyo. Murray was nominated for an Oscar for said performance, but he ultimately lost to Sean Penn's turn in "Mystic River."
At one point, he also did the Garfield movies.
But herein lies the massive injustice. Bill Murray should have been nominated for an Academy Award for every other movie he's done. There. We said it. The following is a comprehensive list of Murray movies where the Academy unconscionably overlooked his performance, starting from the very beginning of his illustrious career. Get More »
Deciding how you like your steak (if you even eat steak) is one thing. Deciding how you like your Bill Murray? Well, that's quite another.

Are you ready to tumble down the rabbit hole that is Charlie Sheen's brain?
The tabloid superstar is poised to make something of a "Being John Malkovich"-style comeback as he looks to be playing a gonzo version of himself (sort of, or something) in Roman Coppola's surrealist comedy, "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III." Get More »
