What's in a name?

Film review: 'Interview' deserves to be seen

By JAKE COYLE The Associated Press That I was one of the relative few to see "The Interview" is not a boast I take any pleasure in. It's with heavy sadness, not pride, that I review Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's North Korean farce.

The movie's prospects of ever seeing the light of day are ...

So imagine how Steven Van Zandt felt when he directed his longtime friend and E Street Band mate Bruce Springsteen when The Boss made his acting debut -- appearing in the third season finale of the Netflix dramedy "Lilyhammer." (Springsteen also briefly appeared in the 2000 film "High Fidelity," but as himself rather than in an acting role). He says he was honored t ...

A sweet 'Night at the Museum' bids farewell to Robin Williams

By LINDSEY BAHR The Associated Press Take heed: There are at least two acutely sad moments involving Robin Williams' Teddy Roosevelt in the latest "Night at the Museum." The movie, subtitled "Secret of the Tomb," is imbued with the unshakable inevitability that even though we're still having fun, it's time to move on--a narrative made only more poignant by Williams's sudden and shocking death earlier this year. It's hard not to concentrate on his ...
