Thu, 22 Mar 2018 13:30:00 PDT

There’s love and affection on screen in “A Normal Life,” emanating from each frame of director Alex Herz’s feature debut. Inspired by the director’s real-life relationship with his brother, who has Down syndrome, the independent drama was made when Herz was just 19 years old. The final product...

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 13:20:00 PDT

President Trump’s decision to order some $50 billion in tariffs on a wide range of Chinese imports, despite the risk of setting off a wider trade war, met with bipartisan approval Thursday, reflecting the growing disillusionment with Beijing on the part of many American officials and business leaders.


Moody crime drama 'Barren Trees' gets lost in complex narrative

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 13:20:00 PDT

The New England-set crime drama “Barren Trees,” co-directed and co-written by Ryan Eatherton and Lei Zhenchuan is far more a tone poem than gripping saga. The snowy, small-town setting of rural New Hampshire offers a moody geographical and cultural backdrop to a tale of two aimless assassins.

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 13:20:00 PDT

Alexa Mendoza has cancer. But she doesn't want anyone to know that.

“Instead of seeing me, everybody is going to see cancer,” the 14-year-old says a few days before starting high school, as tufts of hair begin falling when she combs her hands through her hair. "Everybody is going to know me as...

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 13:15:00 PDT

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 13:15:00 PDT

Arturo Fematt Jr. treasured the weekends he spent with his brother-in-law, Pomona Police Officer Greggory Casillas.

Family comedy 'Shifting Gears' lurches and grinds

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 13:15:00 PDT

Dirt track racing may have its fans, but in “Shifting Gears” it doesn’t prove a particularly exciting arena around which to build a heartland-friendly family comedy. The result, although earnest, is often tepid, overly broad stuff that evokes 1970s-era “Eat My Dust”-type indies filtered through...


'Pacific Rim Uprising' is a big, noisy, cheerfully dumb monsters-and-robots sequel

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 13:10:00 PDT

If you could hear anything over the extraordinary din of clashing robots and monsters in 2013’s “Pacific Rim,” you might have made out the sound of the heroic fighter Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba) bellowing the movie’s signature line: “Today, we are canceling the apocalypse!”

Alas, he also wound...

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 13:05:00 PDT

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 12:55:00 PDT

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 12:43:00 PDT

En los 14 años que han pasado desde que se encontró en un pueblo minero abandonado en el desierto de Atacama en Chile, el extraño esqueleto de 6 pulgadas ha provocado todo tipo de especulaciones, incluidas algunas teorías de orígenes sobrenaturales.

Johnny Manziel throws in front of 13 NFL teams at San Diego's pro day

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 12:40:00 PDT

Johnny Manziel threw in front of a reported 13 NFL teams Thursday when he participated in the University of San Diego’s pro day.

Of course, it’s not his first time taking part in such an event. The former Heisman Trophy winner at Texas A&M did it at the Aggies’ pro day back in 2014, and the Cleveland...


Inspired by classic noir, 'Dead on Arrival' is aggressively uninspired

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 12:35:00 PDT

“Dead on Arrival,” a crime-thriller inspired by the 1949 film noir classic “D.O.A.” (remade by Touchstone with Dennis Quaid in 1988), although not quite a corpse of a movie, contains nowhere near the vitality and urgency it needs to justify its existence.

This is especially true given the story’s...

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 12:30:00 PDT

Community groups lost a legal battle Thursday to reopen a pathway into Griffith Park that had been popular with hikers and tourists trekking to see the Hollywood sign.

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 12:15:00 PDT

The California Supreme Court, reviving a lawsuit against UCLA, decided Thursday that the state’s colleges may be held liable for failing to protect students from violence in classrooms and during “curricular” activities.

Authenticity boosts comedy 'Then There Was Joe'

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 12:10:00 PDT

While undeniably a rough-around-the-edges first feature, there’s something so appealingly genuine about Arkansas-based Justin Warren’s loosely autobiographical “Then There Was Joe,” that you’re willing to forgive the shortcomings.

Inspired by the dynamic between the director-writer and his real-life...


Lance Henriksen and Tom Berenger fit comfortably into throwback western 'Gone Are the Days,' flaws and all

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 12:00:00 PDT

The occasional western still rolls across the movie landscape like a lonely tumbleweed, which makes first-time feature director Mark Landre Gould’s earnestly old-fashioned “Gone Are The Days” — it’s right there in the title — something of a welcome sight, flaws and all. Gould has the good sense,...


Brazilian biopic 'Elis' captures singer's vitality, but lacks context

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 11:45:00 PDT

From its opening moments, “Elis” reveals its beautiful but flawed approach to the famed Brazilian singer of its title. Elis Regina (Andréia Horta) is backlighted, with the sounds of her voice on “Como Nossos Pais” hypnotizing the audience from its first bars. It’s lovingly shot by cinematographer...


His 2nd birthday party was interrupted by a car bomb. Drug kingpin's son describes growing up

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 11:40:00 PDT

The day Serafin Zambada Ortiz turned 2, a car bomb exploded outside his birthday party.

Geoffrey Rush dazzles as an artist wrestling with self-doubt in Stanley Tucci's 'Final Portrait'

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 11:40:00 PDT

"Final Portrait" is faithful to its title and a lot more.

Ably written and directed by Stanley Tucci, it examines in detail the drama behind the last painting made by artist Alberto Giacometti, but that is only the start.

Powered by a triumphant performance by Geoffrey Rush as the celebrated painter...
