    REVIEW: 'Pompeii' ★&#9733
    "Pompeii" is half sword-and-sandal epic, half disaster movie and all guilty pleasure. Director Paul W.S. Anderson, taking a break from cranking out "Resident Evil" movies, has a strong command of CGI technology and 3-D effects, and the movie is so grand...

    Weinstein Co. wins MPAA appeal to overturn R-rating for 'Philomena'
    This time, Harvey Weinstein seems to have gotten what he wanted.  It was less than a week ago that his Weinstein Co. declared war -- yet again -- on the Motion Picture Assn. of America, slamming the organization for assigning the studio's upcoming...
  • 'James Bond Effect' Cited in Study on Movie Violence
