Leonard Nimoy Dies This morning actor Leonard Nimoy died at his home in Los Angeles. He was 83. His wife said he died of lung disease, which he attributed to years of smoking. Nimoy was best known for playing the human-alien character Mr. Spock on Star Trek. Although Nimoy alternately distanced and then embraced his role as Spock, he was a lot more than Vulcan. In real life, Nimoy was also a poet, a director, an author, a singer and a photographer. We remember him with a couple of our regular film critics.
Snipers, Best Men, and Black Hats We’re emerging from our post-Oscar-nominations hangover today, and ready to talk about new releases. We talk about what’s new at the box office in our weekly film segment.
Dumb and Dumber To, and More in Movies It’s that time of year when we already know everything there is to know about the new releases at the box office, because they debuted at festivals months ago.

Tombstones and Maze Runners In our weekly film wrap-up: Liam Neeson’s latest action flick, “A Walk Among Tombstones.” “The Maze Runner,” a kind of Lord of the Flies meets Hunger Games. “This is Where I Leave You,” starring Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, and Jane Fonda. And a return to the Bourne and Bond movies.

In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
