    I don't agree with all the criticisms in the article. Murph was ok, I think, and I liked the film's first act more than most critics seem to. But the points about Zimmer and Dr. Brandt, absolutely....

    Interstellar

    I share the general consensus that this is a film that reaches for the stars yet fails to get there, falling into the chasm between its two poles of stern grandeur and...

    If you've seen Dogville, the Volume I/II split of Nymphomanic roughly parallels the tonal shift that occurs partway through that film. Volume II is certainly a much darker film, but a more...

    No, the great majority of the disruption is caused by overreacting to the very minor threat posed by terrorists. To be fair, Tony Abbott appears to realise this, which is why he has called for people...

    It's a function of today's more competitive market too. If Sony or Microsoft ruled the roost they would be able to impose stricter QA standards on publishers, but doing that today that just means the...
