    Film Review: Superman without humor or emotion
    Zack Snyder's new take on the most famous of comic book heroes could just as easily be called "Superman Returns...Again," but Warner Bros. presumably was in no hurry to remind us of Bryan Singer's 2006 disappointing "Superman Returns." Compared to the...

  • 'Secret Life of Walter Mitty' trailer reinterprets Thurber tale

    James Thurber's story "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" is very short: 15 paragraphs, barely 2,000 words. You can read it (or reread it) in less than 10 minutes: a small and sad-eyed daydream, much like the action it describes. And yet, since it first...
