Review: In latest 'Annabelle,' a babysitting gig goes awry

Jun. 25, 2019 6:14 PM EDT

What a spell for sentient toys. A week after the child-crafted plaything Forky found life in "Toy Story 4" and Chucky was reborn in "Child's Play," the evil vintage doll of the "Conjuring" spinoff series "Annabelle" is back, too, in "Annabelle Comes Home." Surely, a tea party must be in the offing. If movie...

Jun. 20, 2019 12:55 PM EDT

There are two movies opening this weekend that feature iconic anthropomorphic dolls. Be very careful which one you choose. "Toy Story 4" has the usual gang of lovable toys led by Woody and Buzz.

Jun. 12, 2019 4:10 PM EDT

Six years ago, Jim Jarmusch made a movie about vampires. "Only Lovers Left Alive" was beautifully textured, ingeniously detailed and intoxicatingly moody.

CANNES, France (AP) — Jim Jarmusch and Bill Murray's long-running relationship began, fittingly, with a cup of coffee.

NEW YORK (AP) — The latest iteration of the Godzilla franchise took over the top spot from "Aladdin" and roared louder than Elton John at the weekend box office, but it still left a notably smaller footprint on North American theaters than its city-wrecking predecessors.

Review: A cool concept lost in execution in 'Brightburn'

May. 22, 2019 2:23 PM EDT

"Brightburn " is a one idea movie. What if a baby from another planet crash lands on earth and is adopted and raised by a nice childless couple living on a farm? This kid doesn't get hurt, never bleeds and, right around puberty starts to discover that he has superhuman strength too. At this point you're probably...
