    The 2013 Oscars: Torn Between Self-Seriousness and Wanting to See Boobs

    The Academy Awards are not, as we were reminded several times during last night's telecast, a reflection of the films that are most successful by the measure of the box office. None of the best picture nominees were among the top ten money-making titles of the year, though a few were in the top 20. ...

    'Girls' Recap 6: The 'Boys' Aren't in Kansas Anymore, Toto

    One of the things I’ve admired about this season of “Girls” is that it has no obligation to regularly check in with each of the four “leads” of the show.

    Recap: Hannah Tastes The Good Life In Melancholy, Boundary-Pushing 'Girls'

    After rolling out of the gate for season two with solid, but not especially top-tier episodes, last week "Girls" finally stepped up and delivered the best effort of the season thus far. Incorporating the entire cast equally, it was both funny and moving, an emotionally real installment that pushed f...
