    Review: 'Daydream Nation' Is An Emo, Teenage Angst Mixtape & An Insufferable Afterschool Special

    Featuring a dreamy indie-rock soundtrack that quickly turns sour, a sense of disenfranchised teenage romanticism that curdles under its own emo, twee-ness and some occasionally charming performances and admittedly clever quips, the indie film, “Daydream Nation” can’t hide the fact that it is absolutely callow -- riddled with vapid coming-of-age cliches expressed first and foremost by a rather painful voice-over and endless slo-motion music-video montages. Directed and written by Canadian filmmaker Michael Goldbach (co-writer of Don McKellar’s "Childstar"), the tedious and cloying picture reads and sounds like the diary of a deluded and guilel...

    Review: 'Something Borrowed' Is Something Truly Awful

    From its empty soul to its poorly framed shots ready for pan-and-scan conversion, “Something Borrowed” seems primed to play on Saturday afternoons on E!, sandwiched between reruns of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and “Bridalplasty.” Based on the chick-lit hit of the same name by Emily Giffin, th...

    Remembering Jackie Cooper

    I feel as if I’ve known Jackie Cooper my whole life. Like many baby boomers, I grew up on a daily diet of The Little Rascals (originally known as Our Gang) on television, and also watched reruns of his 1950s TV series The People’s Choice, which I liked because it featured a dog named Cleo who “talke...

    Watch Lady Gaga's "Judas" Video

    Not in time for Easter, here's Lady Gaga's much-hyped "Judas" video, which casts her as a biker-chick Mary Magdalene torn between Judas and a Jesus who wears a golden crown of thorns. Directed by Gaga and her creative director, Laurieann Gibson, it's visually flashy (points for costume and makeup) w...
