Anton Yelchin in Star TrekIn a bumper season for the sci-fi genre, Kris was thoroughly impressed by both “Star Trek” and the lower-profile “Moon.”

Meanwhile, we kicked off this year’s Page to Screen series with a look at the literary origins of “Chéri’.”

In a sad week for the business, we bade farewell to both actor Dom DeLuise and filmmaker Marc Rocco.

Quentin Tarantino declared “Inglourious Basterds” a masterpiece. (And Eli Roth a bastard.)

Following “Angels and Demons,” could cinema be the wrong medium for Dan Brown’s storytelling?

Continuing our new Sunday Cents feature with a breakdown of “Wolverine’s” box office performance.

Speaking of which, the “X-Men” franchise continues to grow new limbs. This time, a Deadpool spinoff.

We got a taste of Francis Ford Coppola’s “Tetro” with both a trailer and the opening minutes of the film.

Yours truly admitted to some reservations about Christian Bale’s recent work, and lost further cool points by fessing up to his Jennifer Garner weakness.

Finally, our contentious quest for the most influential films of all time continues apace.
