NEW YORK — This year's Academy Awards nominees reflect a Hollywood truism: The margin between the dust bin and the Oscar red carpet is often razor thin.
I, for one, am officially fed up with movies about zombie outbreaks, mutant outbreaks, virus outbreaks, and outbreaks in general. To be fair, the end of the world/global epidemic genre can still be done well. The best recent example actually isn’t a movie, but “The Walking Dead: The Game,” which packed in more drama, thrills and heartfelt character development than the AMC TV show of the same name.

LOS ANGELES - Agent 007 still has all of his digits. Daniel Craig was sent to the hospital after suffering a minor hand injury while filming the latest James Bond movie "Quantum of Solace" at Pinewood Studios near London.
It can’t be an easy feat for a movie director — five feature films that, on the surface anyway, have little or nothing in common. Five offspring, as motley and dissimilar as the scene around Angelina Jolie’s dinner table.
Craig Outhier reviews 5 new movies
In “Stay,” director Marc Forster (“Monster's Ball”) conjures a striking gallery display of duality, identity and consciousness. If only he had something resembling a concrete plot to occupy his woefully murky main stage.
