Guido aficionado’s hopes crushed with Snooki’s booki

Hi, my name is Sarah and I’m addicted to “Jersey Shore.” (“Hi, Sarah.”) The guiltiest of pleasures available on television today (and that’s saying quite a bit), watching MTV’s ongoing chronicle of eight Italian-Americans living in Seaside Heights, N.J. – “the greatest sociological experiment of our time” – was often the highlight of my week….

A tide of pride

The third-annual Miami Beach Gay Pride Parade and Festival hit South Beach in a flurry of rainbows and fabulousness, and despite the oppressive heat and flash rain storms, it seemed that a fantastic time was had by all.

‘Miral’ not so controversial

Does Julian Schnabel’s “Miral” deserve all the controversy it’s courted since its American premiere a few months ago? Not really. The story of a Palestinian girl’s actions during the ongoing conflict with Israel, it isn’t important enough of a film to warrant the uproar and denigration. Based on Rula Jebreal’s semi-autobiographical novel, “Miral” is engaging,…

The Strokes strike again

In the five years since The Strokes released their last album, a lot has changed in the world. The Democrats won and lost control of Congress; the first biracial (and socialist, and fascist, and communist, and Kenyan-born and Muslim) president was elected; and the last “Harry Potter” book was released; the world wept. The last…

‘Hanna’ Review

I must admit that I had no idea what to expect from “Hanna.” Seeing as how director Joe Wright, of 2005’s “Pride and Prejudice” and 2007’s “Atonement,” is best known for literary adaptations of the aforementioned Jane Austen and Ian McEwan novels, “Hanna” was a complete departure from Regency and interwar Britain. How would a…

All-star cast does ‘Jane Eyre’ justice

Since Charlotte Bronte’s seminal work “Jane Eyre” has been portrayed in what seems like a million adaptations since 1910, thinking that the most recent version by director Cary Fukunaga couldn’t bring anything new to the table was not a huge stretch. How wrong the naysayers were. This film, while not quite as pedigreed as some…

Laughable ‘Riding Hood’ taints the legend

I saw the best actors of my generation destroyed by madness. “Red Riding Hood,” director Catherine Hardwicke’s first film since introducing the world of cinema to the travesty that is “Twilight,” shows that these insane actors- many of them award winners and nominees respected the world over- are willing to do absolutely anything for a…

Matisyahu’s new beats continue to prove his talent

“Live at Stubb’s Vol. II” is a return to form and a nostalgia-tinged throwback for Matisyahu, the world- famous (and sometimes infamous) Hasidic reggae artists. It seems like being an avid Matisyahu fan is a rite of passage for Jewish young adults across the nation: first the Bar Mitzvah, then Matisyahu fandom, and then Birthright…

‘Unknown’ movie review

Liam Neeson’s new film, “Unknown,” takes that idea to new heights as the actor continues his late-career resurgence as the unlikeliest of action heroes – who would have ever thought that Oskar Schindler himself would be so good at kicking ass?

2011 Oscars roundup

The awards season centered on the Academy Awards seems to have morphed into one of those years in which the winners are all but guaranteed. It’s just as well that the winners this year are actually deserving, and that it isn’t one of those years in which the forecasted winners are rewarded for their entire careers but win…

Adele’s latest tunes sound bloody brilliant

In order to appraise “21,” the latest album from British singer Adele, I’m going to use terminology from my international studies classes. Forgive me, readers, and please bear with me. First we have the thesis: Adele, a preternaturally talented singer-songwriter whose voice seems to have been stolen from the era of Ella Fitzgerald and Nina…
