Article: Call-In Commentary: Watch “The Woman in Black” trailer with star Daniel Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe certainly needs no introduction, but his new thriller — his first role since ending the “Potter” franchise — probably does. “The Woman in Black” follows a young assistant for a law firm (Radcliffe) who is dispatched to a remote town to wind down the paperwork for a recently deceased woman. While there, he…

Article: “Harry Potter” e-books delayed until 2012

The Boy Wizard is going to have to wait a little bit longer to learn what an e-book is. The release of the “Harry Potter” book series in electronic format was supposed to occur on the Pottermore website this month at the same time that Pottermore switched from beta to open-to-the-public, AP reports. However, turns…

Our favorite movie glasses of all time

Article: Our favorite movie glasses of all time

We would argue that it’s the spectacles and not the clothes that make the man or woman. Here are some of the best glasses in movies, from the ones sported so iconically by the Boy Who Lived in the “Harry Potter” movies to the alien-revealing shades in “They Live” to the damnable specs in “The…

A Harry Potter Fan Puts a Spell on Rhett & Link

Article: A Harry Potter Fan Puts a Spell on Rhett & Link

Before Rhett & Link were starring in “Commercial Kings” they were just two best friends putting out local commercials on YouTube. Now that they have made it to the big time, they haven’t forgotten the little people who populate YouTube with their heartbreaking confessions, exuberant dance performances, how-to guides, and, of course, the girls braving…

Article: Our top 10 favorite movie scars, from “Harry Potter” to “The Dark Knight”

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2″ officially concludes the adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s multi-volume story about a little wizard boy who didn’t quite know what to make of a jagged lightning bolt scar on his forehead. Harry’s not alone, though.

Article: The top 10 worst teachers in movie history

Cameron Diaz may play the title role in “Bad Teacher,” but many, many terrible teachers have come before her to the big screen.

Harry Potter and the Judd Apatow Web Video

Article: Harry Potter and the Judd Apatow Web Video

The “Harry Potter” kids seem to be relishing the chance to break free of these roles they’ve played for a decade. While Emma Watson shaved her head, Daniel Radcliffe began recalibrating his image with a clever web video collaboration with Judd Apatow. Embedded below from Funny or Die, Radcliffe commences the depotterization by confessing his…

Chris Columbus, protector of children.

Article: Chris Columbus, protector of children.

Some directors are automatic punchlines, their names synonyms for lousy. There’s Adam Sandler cohort Steve Brill (“Without A Paddle,” “Drillbit Taylor”), Eddie Murphy’s favorite Brian Robbins (“Norbit,” “Meet Dave”) and of course Shawn Levy (“A Night At The Museum,” “The Pink Panther,” “Cheaper By The Dozen”), who pays the bills as perfunctorily as possible. The…

Harry Potter and the morphing super fun film score

Article: Harry Potter and the morphing super fun film score

It’s always interesting to hear how scores evolve over the course of a film franchise, how they adapt to changes in the continuing saga while retaining some flourishes of the original themes. The “Jaws,” Indiana Jones, and James Bond franchises come to mind as highlights, and though dramatically flawed at points (though I believe “Casino…

Darkness Rising

Article: Darkness Rising

From Bambi’s mother’s death to the destruction of Alderaan, every modern generation is cursed and blessed with its very own big-screen traumas. “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” the sixth film in the series based on J.K. Rowling’s fantasy novels, contains a doozy; that millions of readers know it’s coming won’t dim its power in…
