If you belong to the cult of Wes Anderson film enthusiasts (or if you are someone who gets all giddy at a short cameo appearance by Bill Murray in an Anderson film) then you are most likely going to love his latest effort, The Grand Budapest Hotel. Whether you appreciate the avant-garde style of the quirky director or not, there is no denying that he has carved a unique niche for himself in the world of cinema.
When Aaron Paul received the script for "Need for Speed," he had very little interest in even reading the story, let alone taking a starring a role in the movie.
It takes a lot for a film based on a video game to impress a crowd these days, given the dazzling advancements in gaming technology. But "Need for Speed," based on the hit EA Entertainment racing game that's sold 150 million units, could now drive some of that success toward the box office.
NEW THIS WEEK
You don’t have to read the credits or see the previews to recognize “The Grand Budapest Hotel” as a Wes Anderson picture. Anyone familiar with Anderson’s work can immediately spot his whimsical filmmaking style and sense of humor that’s completely bizarre, yet also deadpan. While Anderson has fallen into a comfortable, if not slightly predictable, groove, he still remains one of the most distinctive voices and visionaries of the past two decades. With his previous film, “Moonrise Kingdom,” Anderson perfected his craft as a writer and director. Although “The Grand Budapest Hotel” is a step down from that near perfect film, it’s still another quirky, charming entertainment with that special Wes Anderson touch.

300: Rise of an Empire is both a prequel and a sequel to the 2007 film, 300, one of the most stylized action films ever made. The new movie has the same gritty and dark HD tonal quality of the first movie, as well as the sporadic ultra-slow-motion effects that capture the exaggerated battles and blood-spilling in extreme detail; but it’s missing some of the heart from often copied original.
A few weeks ago we got “The Lego Movie,” an animated feature that looked like a disaster waiting to happen. Since its release, however, the film has become a box office hit and received praise from virtually every human being on the planet, myself included. “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” is another family movie that seemed destined to flop at first glance. A modern day 3D extravaganza based on a 1960’s cartoon that was never even so great to begin with? I smell another “Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle.”
The yin and yang of spring make it such an interesting season. After the brutal bite of winter, even a gloomy spring day can lift our spirits with warmer breezes and an emerging palette of delicate hues — those first tinges of new greens, a fuzzy gray bud, a brushstroke of crocus blue. Then, as the season really plants its feet, fresh bright color starts popping up all over.

WASHINGTON — The perfect score will again be 1,600. What's more, the essay will be optional, students will no longer be penalized for wrong answers and the vocabulary is shifting to do away with some high-sounding words such as "prevaricator" and "sagacious."
When “300” came out almost seven years ago, you probably either thought it was the coolest movie of all time or the lamest movie of all time. While it was dumb and silly, the film’s glorified violence, striking look, and classic one-liners did admittedly have an effect on the macho dinosaur in me. The sad truth is that the style over substance appeal of “300” is only good for one movie. The first time you see such eye candy popping out at the screen, it’s friggin’ awesome. The second time around, it’s about as repetitive as watching Optimus Prime transform over and over again. That’s just one of the reasons why “300: Rise of the Empire” is dead on arrival.
