Little “Love” for Travolta’s latest

February 11, 2010

“From Paris With Love” certainly wasn’t my cup of tea, but I wouldn’t stop people from seeing it, provided they’d be interested by an old–school invincible American superhero spy who dodges bullets and dishes out clever...

History meets modernity tonight as the Single Voice Reading Series continues at 8 p.m. in the Tillotson Room of the Tippie Alumni Center, with readings from Padma Viswanathan and Geoffrey Brock. “Both are very different,”...

A dreamy, happy album

February 11, 2010

In the land of the “Lost”

February 11, 2010

Eat up: New Spoon album

February 3, 2010

“Bones” can be brittle

February 3, 2010

There isn’t a lot of originality on television anymore. All of the tiny sparks of creativity have been snuffed out, put on hiatus or are in limbo until March, and, though I’ve avoided the apparent heroin that is “Lost,” addict...

Film on “Edge” of being a thriller

February 3, 2010

As February begins, most if not all of the Academy Award hopefuls have already been released and the countdown to the Oscars is under way. It is during this time that we are bombarded with typically mediocre films. This period,...
