LOS ANGELES (AP) - "American Idol" is on the brink of an adolescent identity crisis. Judge Steven Tyler is leaving and taking his naughty rock star vibe with him, fellow judge Jennifer Lopez is dithering about staying put, and ratings for the Fox show have declined as TV's talent show field gets more competitive. When "American Idol" returns for its 12th season next January, it will have to be a reengineered version of the once-powerhouse ...
THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN **1/2 (In theaters Tuesday, July 3) Perhaps it's best to think of Sam Raimi's 2002 Spider-Man and Marc Webb's 2012 The Amazing Spider-Man as the cinematic equivalents of Coke Classic and New Coke. Despite some alterations to the source material (hey, where's Gwen Stacy?), the Raimi take earned the trust of most purists, offering a near-perfect Peter Parker in Tobey Maguire, treating the origin story in appropriate fashion (right down to the ...
LONDON (AP) - The Spice Girls gave fans what they want - what they really, really want - Tuesday, reuniting onstage to announce the details of a musical based on their songs.

BRAVE **1/2 Belle's mom in Beauty and the Beast? Dead. Cinderella's mom? Deceased. Ariel's mom in The Little Mermaid? Nowhere to be found. Jasmine's mom in Aladdin? Kaput. And this is just a small sampling from the Disney universe, where mother-daughter dynamics rarely come into play because the storytellers have elected to deep-six Mom before the story proper even comes into focus. Pixar, which of course is now under the auspices of the House That ...

PROMETHEUS *** Certain to reign as the best disappointment of 2012, Ridley Scott's Prometheus, the heavily hyped prequel-of-sorts to his 1979 classic Alien, is a work whose visual splendor can't be denied but whose narrative content will divide audiences as swiftly and completely as the executioner's ax separated Marie Antoinette's head from everything else. Grappling with no less than the issues of God and creation, it drops clues for audiences members willing to dig deep ...
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Circus animals and space beasts have lifted Hollywood to a huge weekend.
SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN **1/2 Let's get the obvious out of the way: Snow White and the Huntsman, the year's second big-screen outing centered around a forlorn princess, a wicked queen and a magnificent seven, is infinitely superior to Mirror Mirror, which proved to be about as appetizing as a worm-infested apple. If it isn't a complete success, that's because its ambitions are often thwarted by its execution. Kristen Stewart embodies the most independent ...

MEN IN BLACK III **1/2 It's been 15 years since the release of the delightful Men in Black and a decade since the escape of its lamentable first sequel, and in the interim, audiences have been clamoring for another follow-up only slightly more than they've been jonesing for another Home Alone entry - that is to say, not much at all. It's not that the original MiB doesn't have its legion of fans - hell, ...
