GIRLS RECAP 9: LEAVE ME ALONE

The climactic argument between Marnie and Hannah in "Leave Me Alone" is soooo satisfying—and it's not merely because Marnie is acting as the viewer's proxy in calling Hannah fully and completely on her bullshit.

VIDEO ESSAY: A Drop of BLOOD Through the Heart - A TRUE BLOOD Tribute

It's perhaps either a fitting coincidence or a realization of my own 20-something existential crisis that the making of this "True Blood" montage came shortly after I completed my video contemplation of the world of "Mad Men"'s Don Draper.

GREY MATTERS: ALIEN VS. PREDATOR VS. ALIEN VS. PROMETHEUS

For months Twentieth Century Fox has been frothing us up over Sir Ridley Scott’s return to the "Alien" business with "Prometheus." But for me, this is an occasion to not only celebrate the uncelebrated—Paul W.S. Anderson’s fantastic "Alien vs. Predator"—but to see through Scott’s contributions and mourn their horrible legacy.

VIDEO ESSAY: Ridley Scott's PROMETHEUS Timeline

It’s perplexing to survey the recent surge of excitement from sci-fi movie fans about Ridley Scott.
