The Laughs are on Life Support in Last Vegas

Gives the audience no reason to care, creating yet another movie where a slew of A-list talent can't save it from being a stinker.

Tom Hanks carries the weight of this observational piracy story with a control that is all at once intellectual, primal, and brittle.

Blue Jasmine Introduces Woody Allen's Newfound Sense of Justice

Cate Blanchett's powerhouse performance as the titular character is what the accolade tour de force is reserved for.
