  • Character Crushes: Who Do You Love? (Spoiler Alert: Eric Northman)

    Character Crushes: Who Do You Love?  (Spoiler Alert: Eric Northman)
    I write this after my third viewing of this week's "True Blood." Why did I watch the HBO show three times? Was it because of the intricate "Lost"-like plot?  (Um, noes because said intricacy does not exist in this soapy show.  It's about as obvious as you...
  • 'Straw Dogs' review: You thought all remakes existed for a reason?

    'Straw Dogs' review: You thought all remakes existed for a reason?
    ** (out of four) Forty years ago, Sam Peckinpah’s “Straw Dogs” brutally taught a pacifist (Dustin Hoffman) a lesson: When faced with no other option, you’ll be violent too! Now, at a time when absolutely no one doubts what human...
  • Movie review: 'Straw Dogs'

    Movie review: 'Straw Dogs'
    Writer-director Rod Lurie's bird-brained remake of "Straw Dogs" doesn't work on its own terms, and it can't hold a candle to the unruly, unstable merits of Sam Peckinpah's 1971 original. It's miscast, barely functional in terms of technique, stupid and...
  • The taste-maker behind Joan's on Third

    The taste-maker behind Joan's on Third
    The crowd is shoulder to shoulder on a recent Friday at Joan's on Third. Power couples buy their toddlers "babyccinos" (steamed milk in demitasse cups sprinkled with cocoa), and lithe women with "it" bags dangle their forks over mounds of Chinese...

    More men coloring their hair
    For most men, it's about staying competitive in a youth-focused workplace. For others, it's a need to keep up with new young wives. And for some, well, they just like the sleek black tops on those "Jersey Shore" boys. These are among the reasons stylists...
  • 'Melancholia'

    'Melancholia'
    Noted for the unexpected in his films, director Lars von Trier ("Dogville") scores again on that count as an interplanetary crisis puts Earth on a collision course. The threat parallels the internal crisis a young bride (Kirsten Dunst, who was named best...
  • Is this the last 'Straw' in north-south relations?

    Is this the last 'Straw' in north-south relations?
    The stereotypical Southern rednecks indulging in uncivilized behavior in the remake of "Straw Dogs" seem like they grew up watching the original 1972 movie. They also seem likely to have tossed back a few beers while watching "Deliverance," released...
  • '13'

    '13'
    Taking someone else's identity can be a really bad idea, as the young man (Sam Riley) at the heart of this melodrama quickly learns. The person he's posing as is dead, so there shouldn't be a problem. Right? Wrong ... since the deceased man had...
  • 'Melancholia' review: Easily one of the year's best movies

    'Melancholia' review: Easily one of the year's best movies
    **** (out of four) The stunningly beautiful, remarkably powerful film from writer-director Lars Von Trier bears plenty in common with “The Tree of Life,” if “Tree” were an extraordinary vision of flawed human behavior in the...
  • 'Straw Dogs'

    'Straw Dogs'
    It's a gamble to take on a remake of a movie as iconic as director Sam Peckinpah's thriller about a married couple subjected to violence, but film critic turned filmmaker Rod Lurie ("The Contender") has reasonable success here. The setting shifts from...
