1008_dae_list

Review: Bran Nue Dae

It's not just the spelling that's problematic
The music does range from gospel to filmi to country — but there isn't a hook anywhere.

1008_madmen_list

Our hams are worth fighting for

'MA Men' return
Judging by the universally glowing reviews and the spitfire personality overhaul of Don Draper — now finally impervious to the dead-eyed glare of that vapid bitch Betty — Sunday's Mad Men season premiere proved the show won't be relinquishing its status as must-see-TV anytime soon.

1008_breaking_list

Review: Breaking Upwards

It isn't pretty, but it works
Young (he's 27) director Daryl Wein's debut feature is kind of a mess: he withholds and warps the emotions of the main characters till there's little sympathy to be had.

1008_bigbOi_list

Big Boi | Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty

Def Jam Recordings (2010)

ST040210_McKay_list

Review: Don Mckay

  Delightfully hammy, numbed-down neo-noir
Jake Goldberger’s film is a dizzying affair that builds toward an overwhelming onslaught of twists.

ST040210_CityIsland_list

Review: City Island

Bronx jeer
In this harmless indie comedy, Vince Rizzo (Andy Garcia) is a macho patriarch with two mouthy kids and acting aspirations he conceals from his wife (Julianna Margulies) for fear of sullying his manly image.

ST0319_Wedding_list

Review: Our Family Wedding

Milks the unfunny from any and all black and Latino stereotypes
Mock high jinks ensue when an interracial couple (America Ferrera and Lance Gross) travel home to inform their families of their engagement.

Review: Vivian Girls at Great Scott

A sliver of summer in Allston
Could there be a more appropriate soundtrack to this past weekend's premature taste of spring than a Vivian Girls show?
