Hurricane Bookshelf: Jersey Shore to royalty

Are you bored during the down time you have before midterms? If you’re taking a break from binge drinking or endless tanning, try checking out one of these books. “A Shore Thing” (Nicole Polizzi; Gallery): Yes, you read correctly- I’m suggesting the first literary masterpiece by the resident meatball of “Jersey Shore,” Snooki herself.

TV shows often go awry when remade in the US

The special relationship between the United States and Great Britain implies a strong cultural exchange. Britain gave us the Spice Girls, and we produced the Pussycat Dolls. They created Amy Winehouse and Adele, and we shared with them Ke$ha and Katy Perry. Britain is the land of “Harry Potter,” and the United States is the…

Every Man in this Village Book Review

Journalists are often the forgotten casualties of war: it is as though their being paid to remain objective observers automatically removes them from the emotional stressors and trauma of conflicts.

Nominated film not so ‘Biutiful’

“Biutiful” is a sprawling, jumbled film, one that at times feels awkwardly cobbled together by writer-director Alejandro González Iñárritu, who is probably best known for 2005’s “Babel.” The film bills itself as a redemption tale, but it seems to have taken plot points and characters from the reluctant mediums of “Hereafter,” “The Sixth Sense” or…

Both the film and the car look pretty, but in the end, there is no point to either. Coppola, usually gifted and inventive,…

“Love and Other Drugs” compelling but falters at end

Plot moves nowhere in ‘Nowhere Boy’

“Nowhere Boy” is not a biopic of John Lennon’s life. It is also not about the formation of the Beatles, though that is a forgone conclusion by the end of the film. “Nowhere Boy” portrays just a brief part of Lennon’s formative years in Liverpool, particularly the struggle between his strict aunt who was his guardian (Kristin Scott Thomas) and his freewheeling mother (Anne-Marie Duff) for his loyalty and love.
