The Huntington adds highlights to its American collection

The Huntington adds highlights to its American collection

Gainsborough's "Blue Boy," Thomas Lawrence's "Pinkie," landscapes by Constable and Turner: British art from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries will always be a hallmark of the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens in San Marino. Yet the institution's collection of American art, from the colonial period to the mid-20th century and beyond, has grown considerably in size and depth since the Virginia Steele Scott Foundation's core gift of 50 American paintings to the Huntington in 1979.

Iko Uwais and Cecep Arif Rahman in "The Raid 2."

DVD Review: 'The Raid 2' is ultraviolent

Gareth Evans — writer/director of the 2012 Indonesian action film “The Raid: Redemption,” a surprising art-house hit — reunites with star Iko Uwais for this sequel. The team gets points for not simply aping the first film: Evans took an earlier script he had written and retooled it substantially to make Uwais' Rama the central character. On the other hand, the team loses points for length: “The Raid 2” is 2.5 hours — roughly 50 minutes longer than its predecessor.

Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in Columbia Pictures' "Sex Tape."

Film Review: There's little fun to be had watching 'Sex Tape'

Judd Apatow didn't direct “Sex Tape” — it's startling to realize that he's only directed four features — nor did he produce it or (as far as can be determined) foster, doctor, or massage it. So why does it feel like a Judd Apatow film, albeit one with more raunch than he usually engages in? Maybe it's just that his network of collaborators all mine similar subjects, and “Judd Apatow” has just become a convenient way of categorizing a type of comedy currently in favor — Gen X (or maybe Gen Y) yuppie/slacker farces.
