    Coolio fighting sharks in 'Red Water' kicks off new feature, 'Netflix, what?'

  • 'Caddyshack' right on course as a low-budget laugher

    Originally published in the Chicago Tribune July 29, 1980 This latest "Son of Animal House" is set on a country club golf course. But the setting makes no difference; it's the proper mix of dirty jokes, slapstick, and juvenile humor that writer-director...

  • Scott Cooper: 'Out of the Furnace' Inspired by 'Jaws,' 'The Godfather: Part 2′

    Scott Cooper is an actor's director. That term may be thrown around a lot, but the actor-turned-writer-director-producer truly fits the bill. After an "unremarkable career as an actor" ("I wasn't going to have Matt's career, Ben's or Jude's or all...

  • Letters: Movie mayhem and violence in society

    Re "A rapid-fire surge in PG-13 violence," Nov. 12 Many film and television producers are wrong to think that the content of a film or a TV program has no effect on the viewers. Violence does not satirize the media culture; it succumbs to it, idolizes...

    Deaf film director can finally hear soundtracks to his films

  • John Landis' 'American Werewolf in London' gave horror comedy chops

    John Landis' 'American Werewolf in London' gave horror comedy chops

  • Samuel Fuller's 'Shock Corridor' arrived in mad times

    Samuel Fuller's 'Shock Corridor' arrived in mad times

    Review: John Williams aims for the stars at the Hollywood Bowl
    If you listened carefully in the hills and canyons around the Hollywood Bowl on Friday evening, you could almost hear a simple ostinato built around two bass notes that evoked the ominous feeling of an imminent attack by a predatory shark. Da-dum. Da-...
