  • 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower'

    'The Perks of Being a Wallflower'
    Stephen Chbosky's own adaptation of his novel is a heartfelt, beautifully played treat. Logan Lerman plays a high-school freshman who feels completely out of step with others, until two stepsiblings (Emma Watson, Ezra Miller) make him a living project...

    TV review: 'Shameless' a sharp, bittersweet, wonderful mess
    I've never been much of a fan of Frank Gallagher, the patriarch of the perpetually down-but-never-out Gallagher kids of Chicago's South Side on "Shameless" (8 p.m. CT Jan. 13, Showtime; 3 stars). But I love the show. It's not that William H. Macy doesn't...
  • Logan Theatre reviving some forgotten -- or never known -- trashy movies

    Logan Theatre reviving some forgotten -- or never known -- trashy movies
    There are raunchy, trashy, terrible movies. And then there is "Intrepidos Punks," in a class all its own. An exploitation artifact from early 1980s Mexico (there is some dispute about the film's exact date), it pits the berserk against the berserker: Punk...
  • Harry Potter and the Emmys: Let’s hear it for Maggie Smith

     
    Jane Lynch, a winner last year for Fox's "Glee," is in the running again for best supporting comedy actress. She also will host the Emmy telecast on Sept. 18 on Fox. Her competition: Betty White of TV Land's "Hot in Cleveland"; Julie Bowen and Sofia...

  • 'Confessions of a Shopaholic'

    'Confessions of a Shopaholic'
    Only in the movies or in novels by Sophie Kinsella, on which this comedy is based could someone with spending-control issues land a job with a financial magazine. That role falls to the engaging Isla Fisher ("Wedding Crashers"), whose bubbly, zany...
  • Movie review: Toy Story, Toy Story 2 3D double feature -- 5 out of 5 stars

    Movie review: Toy Story, Toy Story 2 3D double feature -- 5 out of 5 stars
    Converting Pixar's history-changing cartoons Toy Story and Toy Story 2 into 3D and pairing them, in theaters, for a double feature reminds us how very good these movies were and remain, how great the computer animation and how witty and sentimental the...
  • 'My Sister's Keeper'

    'My Sister's Keeper'
    Jodi Picoult's novel, about a youngster conceived to help cure her sister's leukemia, becomes a sincerely acted film with an especially fine performance by Abigail Breslin as the younger sibling. The girl develops second thoughts about her intended role,...
  • Theater Review: Classic tale gives morals

    The Glendale Centre Theatre's goal has always been to produce quality plays with a "Gee" rating. As in "Gee whiz. Gosh darn. That was a pretty good show, honey." Believe it or don't, that's the kind of thing you'll hear the grown-ups saying in the lobby...
  • 'Toy Story 3'

    If "Toy Story 3" had sprung, Slinky Dog-like, from any creative think tank besides Pixar Animation Studios, it might be considered a classic. As is, it's a good sequel to the 1999 "Toy Story 2" and the 1995 original. After a rather shrill and...
  • Showtime welcomes new comedies 'Shameless' and 'Episodes'

    Despite frequent attempts, many hit British TV series haven't been able to make a successful transition across the big pond to American television. For every success like NBC's "The Office," there's a bomb like the same network's "Coupling." Or, on a...
