In a summer full of sequels, who would have thought one of the best ones would feature two British comedians having even more conversations over dinner? Such is the case with the highly-amusing and even occasionally-poignant “The Trip to Italy.” The film is a sequel to “The Trip,&... [More]

One of the simple pleasures of summer is being able to sit on a beach somewhere and blast your way through a good, trashy spy novel. With summer winding down, “The November Man” is here to give you that cinematic equivalent of a beach read; and the result is a competent, slightly ridicu... [More]

When director Robert Rodriguez got a hold of Frank Miller’s graphic novel “Sin City,” he turned it into a movie that was visually unlike anything we’d ever seen. It was a comic book come to life in stark black and white set off by occasional pops of color. The plot was neo-n... [More]

I was born and raised in Oklahoma, so I know from tornadoes. Like most native Oklahomans, I sport my junior-meteorologist badge and can tell you all about wall clouds, gust fronts and that eerie green color the sky turns before things get really hairy.
