    Book Review: 'The Hammer Vault' Is A Historically Rich Treasure Trove

    When we reviewed the poster collection "The Art Of Hammer," an overview of the great British studio Hammer Films, we marveled over each slickly reproduced page. And while the experience was lovely (and lasted well beyond our time looking over and reviewing the book, it was about as superficial an ex...

    Review: Cross-Dressing 'Albert Nobbs' A Stodgily Straight Drama

Based on a short story by Irish author George Moore, it was first adapted into an off-Broadway production by Simone Benmussa with Close in the lead role that won her an Obie award. The actress has been a driv...

    Tintin is a terrible journalist. It has to be said -- his walls are covered with framed news stories about his exploits rather than work published under his byline, he takes not one note (pity his poor fact-checker) and not even by the laxest of Fox News standards could he be considered objective, g...

    Being completely unfamiliar with Hergé’s popular illustrated stories, I came to this movie as a blank slate, with no expectations. After an imaginative opening title sequence (scored by John Williams in a sprightly mode reminiscent of 'Catch Me if You Can'), I was enveloped in the spirit of a rousin...
