    Small Screen | Banksy, Joaquin, Elba, and Walker All Make This Week's Top 5

    This week's biggest news on the small screen may be that Netflix is unveiling new plans for 2011, which include price hikes and a streaming-only option (The Wall Street Journal has the story and analysis). While this has many spelling the beginning of the end of the DVD, many of our small screen to...

    REVIEW | Better Than It Sounds: Javier Fuentes-León's "Undertow"

    The Peruvian drama "Undertow" -- not to be confused with David Gordon Green's 2004 thriller of the same name -- manages to work a whole lot better than it sounds on paper. With unabashed sentimentalism, first-time director Javier Fuentes-León assembles the quaint story of Miguel (Christian Mercado),...

    "Love and Other Drugs," "Tiny Furniture," and Reasons to Nitpick

    "I’m knowingly full of shit," says Jamie Randall, the smarmy Viagra salesman played by Jake Gyllenhaal in Edward Zwick’s slick romantic comedy "Love and Other Drugs," which opens this week.

    REVIEW | Truth in Advertising: Tom Hooper's "The King's Speech"

    "The King's Speech" fuses several genres into an unlikely blend. It's a lavish period piece about British rule in the years leading up to World War II, a buddy movie about two men of different social classes learning to get along, and a crowdpleasing tale of athletic triumph, complete with the requi...

    film review: HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, PART ONE

    In the old days of Saturday matinee serials, audiences faced with cliffhanger endings took comfort in knowing that the story would be resumed one week later. The same can’t be said for the latest Harry Potter picture, which offers much incident but no resolution: for that, we all have to wait until next year. If you’re a dedicated Potter fan, you’ll have to take what you can from this one—mainly, the pleasure of spending time with its leading characters and the young actors who play them. Following J.K. Rowling’s narrative, there are no scenes at Hogwarts’ Academy. This denies us the opportunity to revel...
