Michael Moore sticks to vision as Traverse City Film Fest turns 10

'Magic in the Moonlight' Traverse City Film Festival

Ask festival founder-programmer Michael Moore how the festival has changed as it enters its 10th anniversary year, and he pauses before saying, 'It hasn't.' At least not in attitude. More

New York — The summer box office continued to lack mojo, as the R-rated 'Sex Tape' failed to turn on moviegoers on a weekend where 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' maintained its rule. More

Review: Joyless 'Sex Tape' feels more like a sitcom

Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel play a married couple who wake up to discover that the sex tape they made the evening before has gone missing, leading to a frantic search for its whereabouts, in the comedy 'Sex Tape.' Rob Lowe, Rob Corddry and Ellie Kemper also star. CTMG

Seriously, the premise could easily fit into the new FX show 'Married.' Only there it would likely get some oddball spin and foster some interesting observations on the waning fires of love. More

As masochistic exercises go, 'Aftermath' is fairly effective. It eventually becomes a slaughter-fest in the guise of a cautionary tale. More

Review: 'Planes: Fire & Rescue' works for the milk-and-cookie crowd

The hero of 'Planes: Fire & Rescue,' Dusty, is voiced by Dane Cook. Disney

Review: 'Purge: Anarchy' rights an inherent wrong

Again, the concept is ridiculous. But at least 'The Purge: Anarchy' is more in line with what people going to a 'Purge' movie would want out of a 'Purge' movie. More

Zach Braff immersed himself in 'Wish I Was Here'

Zach Braff plays a struggling actor in 'Wish I Was Here.' He also co-wrote and directed the dramedy. Focus Features

Zach Braff's new film, 'Wish I Was Here,' is, like 'Garden State,' more than a little autobiographical, and more than a little Woody Allenesque. More
