  • Cumberbatch's Codebreaker Gets Lost in Imitation Game Plot

    "Politics really isn't my specialty," shrugs Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to a naval commander (Charles Dance) in an early job-interview scene in Morten Tyldum's choppy biopic, The Imitation Game. Yet no less than Winston Churchill would credit Turing as the main cause of the Allies' victory over the Nazis. Turing...
  • "Gay Wing" Pro and Con: Readers Respond

    Gay Wing's Haters and Lovers Our blockbuster cover story last week went viral, and global, as hundreds of thousands of people shared reporter Ani Ucar's "In the Gay Wing of L.A. Men's Central Jail, It's Not Shanks and Muggings but Hand-Sewn Gowns and Tears," as well as her accompanying video,...
  • Jim Davis on How Garfield Remains Relevant

    Garfield creator Jim Davis is well aware of the Internet's cat obsession. In fact, he's got an upcoming strip about it. "But if I told you the joke, I'd have to kill you," he deadpans, before cracking his paternal composure with a chuckle. (He did tell me, and I've chosen...
  • Gape at the Wonders of the Sublime Antarctica

    The heavens dance. From the bottom of the world, where your eyes might freeze in your face, we see stars pulse against seams of luminous dust, all in slow and dizzying rotation. Then come the lights: Ribbons of green unspool and shimmer and whip across the sky, suggesting angels and...
  • Horrible Bosses 2: The Comedy the First Should Have Been

    The third greatest scourge of the earth, right after online comments sections and bedbugs, is the unfunny comedy sequel, which may be why you think you should skip Horrible Bosses 2. The miraculous surprise is that Horrible Bosses 2 isn't terrible at all. It's looser, breezier, more confident than its...
  • The Babadook Is a Rare Horror Triumph

    If we're honest, most of us who relish a good horror film don't actually hope to feel something like horror. The appeal is, instead, that of shock and surprise, all candied up, the crowd-pleasing bits staged with the kind of extended setup/payoff patience that the makers of comedies have long...
  • Is Any Part of Bill Cosby's Legacy Worth Salvaging? 2

    Bill Cosby's present is secure. Despite the 17 women (so far) who have publicly come forward with notably similar allegations of drug-enabled sexual assault, the comedian received standing ovations for his stand-up performances in the Bahamas and in Florida recently. His comeback tour likely will continue over the next few...
  • The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Fixates on Jennifer Lawrence 4

    Over the first two Hunger Games films, we've watched coal miner's daughter Katniss Everdeen become the pawn, then the pest, of the Capitol, whose President Snow (Donald Sutherland) has enslaved the adults of the 12 poorer Districts and annually commanded that they together sacrifice 24 of their children to likely...
