U.S. actor Tom Cruise has teamed with producer-director Sam Raimi on plans to make a big-budget adaptation of DC Comics' "Sleeper," sources say. The Hollywood Reporter, citing unnamed sources, says Cruise may appear in the Warner Brothers movie, which would also involve Star Road Entertainment's Josh Donen as a co-producer. "Sleeper" is based on a comic book that ran from 2003-05 about a spy with alien abilities to resist pain and to pass those abilities to others. Cruise remains at United...

By MAL VINCENT By Mal Vincent The Virginian-Pilot THE PRODUCERS of "Tropic Thunder" have spent $90 million producing a spoof of action movies - specifically, Vietnam flicks, such as "Apocalypse Now" and "Platoon." Is this a sign that we are, at long last, able to put that controversial conflict behind us? Can we now laugh? The humor, though, is pointed more at the vagaries of Hollywood than at anything approximating the real world. Yes, there are some hilarious moments as well as some...

By Jason Foster If comedies could be judged solely on their potential to be funny, then "Tropic Thunder" could've been the "Citizen Kane" of the genre. With a cast that includes Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr. and a made-up and overweight Tom Cruise, it would seem the laughs should be as plentiful as vines in the jungle. Alas, potential does not a good movie make. But while "Tropic Thunder" won't go down as a comedy classic, it's not void of laughs either. Stiller...

By Jeff Simon Tom Cruise, man, Tom Cruise. Never count a man out when he's got the kind of friends Cruise obviously has. Just when it looked as if Cruise's career was about to take a slo- mo public dive off the nearest bridge, here he comes in a cameo in Ben Stiller's hilarious "Tropic Thunder" that isn't just in-your- face, grotesque and fall-down funny but is really quite brilliant besides. (For those who doubt Cruise's capacity to be brilliant, see "Magnolia" and "Jerry Maguire.")...

By Michael Janusonis The freewheeling comedy Tropic Thunder, about a crew making a war movie in Vietnam and unwittingly getting caught up in a real life- or-death adventure, starts off like a house afire. Ben Stiller, who directed and co-wrote the film as well as starring in it and producing, introduces the principal characters in a wacky series of commercials and movie trailers spoofs. Stiller himself is Tugg Speedman, an action movie star who has made six world-on-fire films as the...

By Claudia Puig Tom Cruise seems to have regained his cool in Tropic Thunder (*** out of four). Cruise's paunchy studio exec is easily the funniest role of his fairly straight-faced career. Whether barking outlandish orders or gyrating ridiculously, Cruise's bald-pated, hairy-knuckled movie mogul is outrageously amusing. His boyishly eager businessman from Risky Business has grown into a cynical jerk of a studio chief -- but he has updated his dance moves. Though it can't be an easy...


Word of the Day
toccata
  • In music, a work for a keyboard-instrument, like the pianoforte or organ, originally intended to utilize and display varieties of touch: but the term has been extended so as to include many irregular works, similar to the prelude, the fantasia, and the improvisation.
This word is Italian in origin, coming from the feminine past participle of 'toccare,' to touch.
