When it comes to recommending movies to get you in the mood for baseball season, which opens Sunday, any hack can offer up the Kevin Costner trifecta (“Bull Durham,” “Field of Dreams” and “For the Love of the Game”).

Nobody does Las Vegas the way Mark Wahlberg does Las Vegas.
How do Hollywood studios distract theater owners from the fact that they’re once again exploring faster ways of getting films to consumers in their homes, thus endangering the very existence of movie theaters?
“The Last Word” will make you reflect on your own stint on this planet and the time that could’ve been better spent doing something else — like the 108 minutes it takes to watch this movie.
With “Magic Mike Live” set to open next week at the Hard Rock Hotel, here’s a look at five other movie-themed shows that would be perfect for the Las Vegas stage.
Why? I mean, the answer is obviously money. With the kind of moolah “Beauty and the Beast” is going to rake in, we could all have affordable — heck, probably even free — health care.
It may be a tale as old as time, but Paige O’Hara never seems to tire of talking about her role in it.
For the most part, “Kong: Skull Island” is just an excuse — albeit a more entertaining one than it should be — to launch a series of big-budget monster battles. But thanks to Reilly’s Hank Marlow, and things take a hilariously bonkers turn.
For Hugh Jackman’s final turn as Wolverine “Logan” has pulled out all the stops. It’s a raw, gritty, neo-Western that’s barely even a superhero movie at all.
Ryan Murphy is to flashy anthology series what Shonda Rhimes is to buzzy dramas with strong female leads: Others may occasionally make better ones, but no one else can compete in terms of sheer, overwhelming volume.
Hosting the Academy Awards is a bit like dating Taylor Swift. Pretty much everybody in show business wants to give it a try, but it almost never ends well.
With 14 Oscar nominations, “La La Land” has tied ”Titanic” and “All About Eve” for the most ever. And it has a very real shot at tying “Titanic,” “Ben-Hur” and “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” for the most wins with 11. (Two of its nominations are for best original song, so the most it could win is 13.)
If Bradley Whitford were in more horror movies, I would watch more horror movies.
The way things are shaping up, “La La Land” is going to leave Sunday’s Oscars (5:30 p.m., ABC) with pretty much everything short of a best actor statue

With outrageous roles in “22 Jump Street,” “Office Christmas Party” and this weekend’s “Fist Fight,” the Las Vegas native has made a career out of pushing boundaries.
The animated movie is crammed full of so many gags, both verbal and visual, you can’t possibly catch them all in one viewing.
“Fifty Shades Darker” is like the raunchiest book Dr. Seuss never wrote — only with significantly less plot.
“QB1,” a 10-part series from “Friday Night Lights’ ” Peter Berg, debuts Wednesday on Complex Networks’ Rated Red on go90.
It’s been 34 years since “The King of Comedy,” and Robert De Niro still can’t tell a joke.
If there was anything that rocked the 2017 Sundance Film Festival more than the snow — by one account, 55 inches fell during the 11-day event, including 20 inches in one day — it was the election of President Donald Trump.
