    Burton and Depp's 'Dark Shadows': Review Round-Up

    Warner Bros.' trailer for Tim Burton's eighth collaboration with Johnny Depp, "Dark Shadows," had me salivating for a witty 70s romp at the movies. And the movie looks and sounds great, with a witty Danny Elfman 70s score and a strong cast. So why is the film such an enervating disappointment?

    Book Review: Max Allan Collins Does Mickey Spillane & Mike Hammer Proud With 'Lady, Go Die!'

    In his ten rules for writing, Elmore Leonard forgoes the advice of Ernest Hemingway, and says: "Never open a book with weather."

    Review: David Mackenzie's Music Festival Rom-Com 'Tonight You're Mine' Has A Tin Ear

    Not many films are set at music festivals. D.A. Pennebaker’s documentary, “Monterey Pop” is vital, we’ll grant you, and other rock docs that expose something fundamental about the artists they’re profiling (“Don’t Look Back,” “Gimme Shelter&rdquo...
