UNITED ARTISTS 90TH ANNIVERSARY PRESTIGE COLLECTION | $400 | AMAZON.COM  | True OWS-ers are in it for the long haul, so you're going to need something to pass the time when you're not protesting or checking Twitter. The United Artists 90th Anniversary Prestige Collection has an assload of movies that will keep you occupied for months! Four hundred bucks seems steep for a DVD box set, but this contains 90 movies (that's only $4.43 per flick!), and if you don't have the cash, just sell your neighbor's iPad 2 - trust me, this is more important than his Facebook updates. There's a movie for any occasion: Feeling uninspired as your chants fall on deaf ears? A double feature of Hotel Rwanda and Bowling for Columbine should get your blood boiling again. In the mood for something lighter? I Could Go On Singing and Fiddler on the Roof will have you crooning and dancing down the Brooklyn Bridge. Sometimes you just want to kick some selfish investment banker in the taint and rip out his eyeballs, but you probably shouldn't, given Occupy's emphasis on creating dialogue and not resorting to violence. (Stupid pacifism!) So get your aggression out safely with Red Dawn and Child's Play. The rest of the 99 percent will thank you.

  • Review: The Strip
    In lieu of Steve Carell’s hopelessly inept and earnest manager, we have his creepier duplicate, Glenn. Instead of the boorish brown-noser played by Rainn Wilson, there’s the more obnoxious Rick.
  • Review: A Single Man
    Christopher Isherwood published his novel about a middle-aged homosexual grieving for a lost lover, the frank depiction of gay desire scandalized some readers.
