  • Stars Come Out for NBC's Fall TV Bash

    Stars, executives and press braved the sweltering Los Angeles heat on Tuesday evening to toast NBC's new television season, taking refuge in the air-conditioned wood and glass hideaway of Hollywood's Hyde. The atmosphere was cheery but comfortably low-...

    Review: Tom Petty ends 'The Waiting,' brightens future for PPL Center
    If the Eagles’ concert Friday was the perfect show to open Allentown’s PPL Center, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers on Tuesday was the perfect act for the arena’s second event. Or any beyond that. While the Eagles played a set that...
  • Review: 'The Maze Runner' ★★★

    Review: 'The Maze Runner' ★★★
    Forever indebted to H.G. Wells, William Golding and other cranky visionaries, the hardy, cockroach-like "Hunger Games"/"Divergent" genre has a nickname: "dyslit," after the dystopian best-sellers in which young adult protagonists must prove their physical...
  • Review: 'My Old Lady' ★★

    Review: 'My Old Lady' ★★
    You can't complain about the cast in "My Old Lady" — Kevin Kline, Maggie Smith and Kristin Scott Thomas going at one another in high style — and the setting of Paris at its most atmospheric is charm itself. The film in question, however,...

    Review: 'This is Where I Leave You' ★★ 1/2
    Going by the new ensemble comedy "This Is Where I Leave You," you'd think Tina Fey was a medium acting talent at best, prone to overstatement and eye-rolling. Performers can't do it alone; they need guidance. But in the movies, very often performers end...

    Review: 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby' ★★

    Review: 'Tusk' ★★
    Civilians and critics alike, a lot of them, loved "Tusk" in Toronto, where it played the Midnight Madness sidebar of the international film festival earlier this month. And it's fun to have writer-director Kevin Smith, of "Clerks" and "Dogma," whose...

     'Hector and the Search for Happiness' not a blissful encounter
    In "Hector and the Search for Happiness," a bedtime story for the eternal man-child, Simon Pegg plays a psychiatrist who lives in a world of WASP male privilege yet remains dissatisfied with his existence. Hector's premature bout of midlife crisis...
  • 'The Maze Runner' is skill level: medium

    'The Maze Runner' is skill level: medium
    **1/2 (out of four) Two activities in “The Maze Runner”—fighting to stay in a circle and considering climbing a very tall wall—reminded me of “American Gladiators,” which made me think of “American Ninja Warrior,...
  • The shame and glory of Tennessee Williams in John Lahr's new book

    The shame and glory of Tennessee Williams in John Lahr's new book
    One day a comprehensive literary biography of Tennessee Williams will be written that won't resemble a psychiatric case study. Until then let's savor John Lahr's "Tennessee Williams: Mad Pilgrimage of the Flesh," a work that is scintillating on the...
  • Sarah Waters mixes crime and romantic strangers in 'Paying Guests'

    Sarah Waters seems to revel in 19th and 20th century British history as a dolphin does in water: Her literary depictions of domestic life, manners, architecture, class structure, the weight of war and the volatility of love all appear as effortless as...
