    Supervillain, spy, country music icon: Tom Hiddleston's comfort zone is massive

    Tom Hiddleston might be the perfect karaoke companion. After seeing him pull out his phone, snap his fingers and jam to blues legend Howlin' Wolf's "How Many More Years" during our recent interview, my inclination was to find the nearest dive bar with a microphone. "How many more years/Have I got...

    Not even Jake Gyllenhaal showering makes 'Demolition' worth it

    “Everything has become a metaphor,” Davis (Jake Gyllenhaal) says shortly after his wife dies in a car accident. He proceeds to list bad metaphors until he stops himself. “Too much.” You have to wish “Demolition” had taken its own advice, or at least expressed some self-awareness. Everything in...

    International Tom Hanks Day is a thing and this is the Chicago guy who started it

    It is universally acknowledged that Tom Hanks is the eighth wonder of the world. On April 2, Chicagoans will gather at Lincoln Hall to express their gratitude for his existence at the 13th annual International Tom Hanks Day.

    Keeping it tight: Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman's costumes through the years

    It's a bat, it's a dame, it's ... well, Superman. Ever since Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman first appeared in comics in the late 1930s and early 1940s, they’ve been a mainstay in pop culture. They’ve appeared on the big and small screens in many different forms, but for the first time, all three...

  • Insert music-related pun to indicate Don Cheadle's Miles Davis biopic isn't good

    Insert music-related pun to indicate Don Cheadle's Miles Davis biopic isn't good

    Um, here’s a question: Why make a movie about legendary trumpeter Miles Davis that mostly focuses on his period of retirement in the late '70s? Did “Get on Up” (which was disappointing as well) only depict the later years when James Brown faced personal and professional problems? No. It showed...

  • 'Midnight Special,' or 'My Son Might Be An Alien'

    'Midnight Special,' or 'My Son Might Be An Alien'

    The quiet sci-fi of “Midnight Special” might include a mention of Superman, but those seeking the explosions of “Dawn of Justice” only will enjoy this for about 30 seconds. Rather, the new movie from writer-director Jeff Nichols (“Take Shelter”) feels sort of like what “Tomorrowland” might have...
