With a conspicuous diss of Kathryn Bigelow, the un-nominated director of “Zero Dark Thirty,” the Academy Awards nominations were announced Thursday morning. “Zero Dark Thirty” was one of nine films given the best picture...
The nominees for the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards were announced Thursday by Jessica Alba, Megan Fox and Ed Helms. Steven Spielberg's epic on the 16th president, "Lincoln," stood out in the film categories with seven Golden Globe nominations, followed...
Last month after a screening, even as the lights came up in the theater, I could feel "Zero Dark Thirty" fading, its images and impact already softening in my head. No, no, wait: not fading — mingling. If our cultural experiences rub shoulders at...
I'm 51 and Bilbo-free. Somehow "The Hobbit" has eluded me my entire reading life. What was I reading in junior high when I first noticed everyone else was reading it? "Big A: The Story of Lew Alcindor," maybe. Or William K. Everson's book on Laurel &...
Here's a tasty legacy from the visit I shared with some of my Swedish cousins a few weeks ago: Gevalia! It's a brand of coffee in Sweden, and it's good to the last drop. I had it when I was in Sweden two years ago and sort of forgot about it because I...

"The Words" is a peculiar, old-school beast to encounter in the movie year 2012, lacking utterly in computer-generated effects, not to mention Avengers and masked superheroes in general. It's more or less a grown-up picture, and not bad at that, though...
Since tackling more serious material than, say, “Without a Paddle” or “Employee of the Month,” with the excellent indie “The Freebie” and NBC’s solid “Parenthood,” Dax Shepard has noticed that...
** (out of four) Star/writer/co-director Dax Shepard’s “Hit and Run” possesses such a sheepish, hey-man-I’m-trying-here charm that deriding it feels a little like poking a puppy. However, a chase movie should never be sluggish,...

In adolescence many of us were cinematically weaned on (or permanently stunted by; I'll let the courts decide) the likes of "Dirty Mary Crazy Larry" and "Gone in Sixty Seconds," rough-edged and disreputable time-killers whose co-stars were whatever the...
