    McCarthy Moves to THR; TOH Stays Put

    Todd McCarthy is going to Janice Min's new iteration of The Hollywood Reporter as their new lead film reviewer. I am happy for him. He's a great critic, but making the adjustment from 30 years of working with a Variety support system to the independence of a blog was tough for him. I look forward to...

    "The Social Network" Complaints: Reality Bytes

    I almost included the issue with the film's truth problem in yesterday's post about "The Social Network" complaints, but it's a big enough criticism to warrant its own address.
