Review: Katy Perry: Part of Me

A familiar saga

ShortTake_Brave

Review: Brave

Merely good
Disappointing on a story level, this fable in the feminist Disney Princess mold (unremarkably so) signals problems from the start.

Movies_ThatsMyBoy

Review: That's My Boy

'90s pop culture

Review_TheMatchmaker

Review: The Matchmaker

Cultural limits
Arik (Tuval Shafir), a restless Israeli teenager, struggles against the cultural limits of Haifa in 1968 — it's a provincial prism untouched by rock music or the sexual revolution.

Film_SafetyNotGuaranteed

Review: Safety Not Guaranteed

An act of nostalgia
For a generation weary of Zooey Deschanel's manic pixie and of staring down a future of student loans and dreary internships, Aubrey Plaza, the deadpan alt-comic who could have stepped out of the pages of Ghost World, may be the next dream girl.

Film_RockOfAges

Review: Rock of Ages

Soft mock
In retrospect, 1987, the year in which this adaptation of Chris D'Arienzo's hit Broadway show is set, might have been the moment that pop culture shit the bed.

list_Prometheus2_66

Review: Prometheus

Ridley Scott's monumental and busy return
The best films in the Alien series, Ridley Scott's original and James Cameron's pluralized follow-up, didn't bother much with pondering the meaning of it all. The only film that did so, Alien 3 , is the worst.
