  • 'The Rocketeer' flies again with archival hardcover from IDW Publishing

     
    The late, great Dave Stevens drew comic book characters that rocketed right off the page. I was reminded of that when I got a look at a very special new book from IDW Publishing that has just gone on sale......
  • Hero Complex: On the trail of 'The Rocketeer'

     
    I was 12 when I first saw a copy of “The Rocketeer,” and I was mesmerized by it — the late, great Dave Stevens drew comic book characters that rocketed right off the page. Stevens' storytelling was polished, and he had a stylized, retro fl...

    Movie review: Sunshine Cleaning -- 4 out of 5 stars
    In high school, Rose Lorkowski wasn't just a cheerleader, she was head cheerleader. A redheaded looker, she dated the captain of the football team. But "cheerleading," she observes in a moment of sad self-awareness, is "not as marketable as you think."...

  • Movie Review: Sunshine Cleaning

    On the surface, "Sunshine Cleaning," about a small-time crime scene cleanup crew in a crumbling corner of Albuquerque, is an offbeat and oddly endearing drama, leavened with just the right amount of comedy to even things out. But dig in a bit deeper,...
  • Will babe factor help Kate Winslet beat Meryl Streep?

    "It wasn't calculated! I swear! You must believe me!" Kate Winslet gasped to Gold Derby late last year as we discussed her recent photo shoot with Vanity Fair. That bawdy gig had been a perfect way for her to begin seducing Oscars' voters as she...

  • Mark Sarvas' "Harry, Revised"

    ere it not for the fact that Mark Sarvas' "Harry, Revised" is being promoted as a debut novel by the author of a highly regarded literary blog (The Elegant Variation), the uninformed reader of this work might be forgiven for assuming he had stumbled...
  • Go ahead - 'Get Smart' and skip this flop

    Go ahead -  'Get Smart' and skip this flop
    Surely after the Speed Racer fiasco, Warner Brothers was ready to say "sayonara" to lame 1960s TV adaptations. But plainly there wasn't time for the studio to, ahem, Get Smart about that. Thus, we're treated to a big-budget, big stars, big explosions...
  • Movie Review: 'Get Smart'

    Missed it by that much. Actually, the new version of "Get Smart" misses by a fair-size margin. It's too bad. It's just trying to give us a good time at the retroplex. Even if you're 14 and you've never heard Irving Szathmary's classic deedley-deedley-...
  • 'Sunshine Cleaning'

    'Sunshine Cleaning'
    Amy Adams ( "Julie & Julia") and Emily Blunt ("The Devil Wears Prada") make an engaging duo as sisters who take up a very specialized profession in director Christine Jeffs' seriocomic tale. Their business is to clean up crime scenes, and the literally...
