“What are you people, on dope?!”
This was said by Mr. Hand in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and it needs to be said about the critics knocking this lovely French film. And I hate most French films.

Regina Spektor has performed in Chicago numerous times, including a Lollapalooza stint in 2007, but while she’s in town you won’t find her at the clubs favored by the Rihanna-Katy Perry-Ke$ha set. Instead, before her performance Wednesday at...

If it seems like only a few years since we thrilled to director Sam Raimi's “Spider-Man” trilogy, well ... that's because it was. Raimi's films were released in 2002, 2004, and 2007. After a mere five years, Sony is starting all over again....
