Elysium (2013 film)
As a fan of director Neill Blomkamp's first movie, District 9 (2009), and his short films, I was eagerly awaiting the release of Elysium. Though it's not a total disappointment, Blomkamp's …

Pacific Rim (2013 film)
If you're going to make a film about giant robots, then this is how to do it - pay attention, Michael Bay. Guillermo del Toro's two hour love letter to Japanese kaiju and mecha movies is monster …

Iron Man 3 (2013 film)
Proof that the law of diminishing returns doesn't always apply, the third film in the Iron Man series is the best of the bunch. Indeed, I would go as far as to say that this is one of the best Marvel …
posted a Quick Tip about Black Hole (graphic novel). March 22, 2012
Black Hole by Charles Burns
An unsettling, allegorical tale of adolescence and mutation in the 1970s. Part coming of age drama, part Cronenbergian body horror. Burns' superb writing and bold black and white artwork make this a highly …

The Palestinian / Israeli conflict is perhaps not the easiest of topics to convey through the comic book medium, but Joe Sacco does a startlingly good job of it. His raw, reportage style has a real immediacy …

She & Him Volume Two
Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward serve up another slice of Phil Spector-esque, summertime pop and country-tinged wistfulness. This is a very nostalgic sounding record that evokes classic 60s and 70s, singer/songwriter …
posted a Quick Tip about Fables. September 30, 2010
I confess to being a bit late getting around to reading this comic book series, but I'm certainly glad I did. The concept is inspired and Willingham's writing is sharp. The art is solid and well detailed, …

The Shop Around the Corner
A charming comedy romance from the golden age of Hollywood. The great James Stewart is, as usual, effortlessly likable. If you love It's A Wonderful Life and Harvey, then you'll love this one …

Anvil! The Story of Anvil
This is a wonderful documentary (or rock-umentary) film. Begins as a hilariously funny, non-fiction "This is Spinal Tap", but becomes a genuinely touching story of unfulfilled dreams, undying ambition, …
