As you're probably aware, this Sunday is hip-hop icon Tupac Shakur's birthday. But you might not know it also happens to be Father's Day, the day of the year we set aside to give our Dads thanks for all the great Dad-stuff that they've done for us. While the hip-hop canon has largely dealt with over ... More >>
The adventure flick pretends it's not an M. Night Shyamalan film
Rodrigo Cortés's thriller doesn't inspire faith
What happens when you mix together the crazy plot twists of Dan Brown, the conspicuous nature of Julian Assange and a right-hand serviceman as powerful as Alfred was to Bruce Wayne? You have what the Times has called "perhaps the greatest breach in centuries in the wall of secrec ... More >>

It is human nature to be both disgusted and, somehow, deeply intrigued by rats. Maybe it's just August, but this love-hate relationship is again at the forefront of NYC consciousness, as our ratty frenemies seem to be overrunning Tompkins Square Park even more than usual of late. Not content with B- ... More >>

Sure, the leak very well might be contained! It's a celebration! Except we can't forget that BP, British Petroleum, is the organization responsible for one of the biggest environmental disasters (and subsequent disastrous clean-up) in the history of mankind.

The opening sentence of Roger Ebert's review of M. Night Shyamalan's new movie went off like a shot around Twitter today: "The Last Airbender is an agonizing experience in every category I can think of and others still waiting to be invented." Ouch!

I worship movies with shock endings because after I see them at early screenings, I get to run around telling all my friends the twists and ruining the experience for them! I love being a big, old spoiler queen. In 1992, I ran through the streets of Times Square yelling "The chick has a dick ... More >>
David ShankboneWhat if the gays were the majority in this country (not only at department stores) and had all the legal rights and as a result could willfully keep down the heteros?
