    2010: My Year of Giving Up on Movies

    Let me just preface this post by clarifying that I haven't given up on movies as a whole. In spite of my end-of-semester, burned-out attitude exhibited on Twitter lately, I haven't lost my interest in cinema. I finally saw 'Black Swan' last night and liked it a lot. The same goes for 'Rabbit Hole,' ...

    Carlos: IFC's Long-Form Experiment, Embraced by Critics, Globes

    Stuck in the Snow? These Movie Characters Show Us How to Get Through a Blizzard

    You've no doubt heard that it's a mess in New York City today. Trains aren't running, airports are closed, major streets are filled with abandoned vehicles, people have been trapped in subway cars overnight. I couldn't even get out of my building this morning because the snow drifts are so high. But we're coming down from the worst of it -- or the best, depending on your outlook. I'm sure many people were happy not to go into work today. But for those who did have to trek through the weather last night or this morning, here's a list of heroes just like you.
