Trump Arrives In Saudi Arabia To A Warm Welcome, Despite Troubles At Home

President Trump arrived in Saudi Arabia on Saturday carrying baggage — namely, a swirl of controversy stemming from his firing of FBI Director James Comey and the ongoing Russia investigations . But his hosts in Riyadh aren't likely to be bothered by it all. Trumpeters played and jets flew overhead with red white and blue smoke trails decorating the sky as Trump emerged from Air Force One in Riyadh. He was greeted by Saudi Arabia's King Salman and children bearing flowers. A long red carpet...

Nick Hornby and Badly Drawn Boy -- a match made in Restoration Hardware heaven...

Andie MacDowell is "better than sausage"...

If I told my buddies I was having an affair with a woman seriously younger than I, I don't think they would endanger the young woman or their own friendships just to derail my temporary insanity. Welcome to the film "Crush."

Bottom line. How much you enjoy this movie depends upon how you feel about Sandra Bullock...

"Murder by Numbers" is a Sandra Bullock showcase that has all the window dressings of an Alfred Hitchcock thriller. A spooky abandoned house on the edge of a precipitous cliff. The Pacific Ocean boiling like a cauldron below. A law enforcement officer haunted by her past -- think Jimmy Stewart in "Vertigo," then digitize in Bullock.

The plot is so thin, I’m afraid to walk over it for fear of disappearing through its icy logic.

No one makes trashy action flicks better than Hollywood. Don’t worry about challenging your brain on "The Scorpion King." First introduced in "The Mummy Returns," the King is again played by wrestling hero "The Rock." The plot is so thin, I’m afraid to walk over it for fear of disappearing through its icy logic.

Move over Alec, Billy, Stephen and Daniel -- there are some new Baldwin Brothers in town...

With a combination of old-fashioned painted-cel animation, less-than-fluid motion, and modern digital technology based on a 1949 manga (comic book) by the late Osamu Tezuka, this animation is filled with ideas of love and identity, be it human or robot.

The film deservedly won the top prize last year at the Cannes Film Festival...

"The Son's Room" reminds me why I love character-driven European films: the pace is slow, the camera lingers on a face longer than an American shot would dare, and the theme is frighteningly simple but almost always universal. In this case, a loving family has lost a son; the grieving process and the letting go are painful and inevitable. The film makes it all as lyrical as could be possible for a grim topic.

"Delhi is a strange 'globalized' world where tradition butts heads with modernity at every turn"...

"Panic Room" is a good "B" movie that makes you glad you don’t live in a mansion in the heart of NYC...

"When they say 'No,' they're looking for a way to say 'Yes.'"...

Scientists Sneak A Peek At How Ladybugs Fold Their Wings

With the help of high-speed cameras, CT scanners and some nail-art supplies, scientists in Japan have managed to catch a glimpse of the elaborate way that ladybugs fold their wings to tuck them away. The research could have implications for everything from aeronautics to umbrellas. The study, published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, explored how ladybugs can have wings strong enough to fly with, but quickly collapsible so they can be tucked out of the way....

PHOTOS: When The Hindenburg Was The Height Of Luxe In-Flight Dining

These days, in-flight meal service often consists of a packet of pretzels and a can of soda. It's a far cry from the days of the Hindenburg, where the sumptuous dining options included multi-course meals served in an opulent dining room. Before it became a byword for disaster 80 years ago this month, the Hindenburg was the state-of-the-art in ultra-luxury flight: a giant passenger airship composed of durable aluminum alloy filled with highly flammable hydrogen. (That would prove its downfall....
