‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ Review

Pop culture enthusiasts can be forgiven if they approach Peter Jackson's J.R.R. Tolkien prequel trilogy thinking about 'Star Wars.' Will this next (but previous!) chapter in one of Fandom's key franchises broaden the cinematic universe we love so much, or will this be another case where they should have let enough alone?

Well, as is so frequently the case in life, I can't give you such a black and white answer. For starters, we may not be able to fully analyze 'The Hobbit' until all three chapters are in. Nevertheless here we are and 'An Unexpected Journey' does, indeed, have a lot going for it. It is also saddled with tangents, jabberjaw scenes that never end and far too many beats whose sole function is to remind you how much you love the original 'Lord of the Rings' films.

‘Skyfall’ Without Daniel Craig? Current James Bond Says “I’ve Been Trying to Get Out of This”

'Skyfall' is finally making its US debut this week, but it's already gone above and beyond at the UK box office. Since its October premiere overseas, the latest James Bond flick has surpassed the country's sales of 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2' and has blown away the last two Daniel Craig-led Bond films, and the hopes are even higher for its release here.

But what if our current 007 actor wasn't around to bask in the success of 'Skyfall' (or 'Casino Royale' and 'Quantum of Solace,' for that matter)? Despite the film's successes, talk has recently shifted to Craig as he revealed that he -- how can we put this delicately? -- kind of hates portraying James Bond.

Connery hasn't starred in a movie since 2003's 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' (what a disappointing way to go out...) but his almost ten-year retirement almost ended with a role opposite the character that made him famous.

'Taken' was the surprise hit of 2009, a January dump that inexplicably made nearly $150 million in the United States and transformed Liam Neeson into an instant action star. Three years later, 'Taken 2' has arrived in theaters on a primo release date and with an advertising campaign that probably cost more than the entire first movie.
