'Big Stone Gap' a gussied-up Hallmark movie

The Southern romance features Judd as a woman who seeks escape but decides, when presented with the opportunity, to stay home instead.

In 'Brand,' Bullock balances drama, humor

Everything good about "Our Brand Is Crisis" is contained in the opening moments, in which Sandra Bullock, playing a political consultant, is interviewed as if for a documentary.

The food cooked and created by the great Adam (Bradley Cooper) - and served up to us in "Burnt" - looks like the worst fancy-phony trend cuisine: two tiny pieces of fish cut into perfect rectangles, served on a tiny bed of vegetables, with a garnish of spring flowers. Is this food or edible sculpture? I skipped dinner to see this movie, and the only time I felt a hint of missing something was dur ...>>
