  • The End of the Movie Star

    By Kyle | December 7, 2016

    Johnny Depp and Will Smith, previously the two biggest stars on the planet, are now the most overpaid. No one cares about movie stars anymore, I argue in a column.

    Trump Is to Blame for Everything

    By Kyle | December 7, 2016

    In which I have a bit of fun with progressives going bananas about Trump, whom they blame for (among other things) their sad sex lives. A column.

    Review: “Lion”

    By Kyle | November 22, 2016

    This Oscar contender is a bit one-note, but still mostly effective: It’s about a young Indian (played as an adult by Dev Patel) who is effectively orphaned after falling asleep on a train at age 5 and waking up 1000 miles from home. My review.

    Review: “Bad Santa 2”

    By Kyle | November 22, 2016

    I wouldn’t actually call it “sluggish” as our headline has it, but this filth-o-rama is very hit-or-miss. This time Kathy Bates is Willie’s mom and we’re in Chicago (though the posters all over NYC have Billy Bob humping the Statue of Liberty for some reason). My review.

    Review: “Allied”

    By Kyle | November 22, 2016

    21st century special effects and considerable glamor, but the story is fairly weak in this WW II thriller about a Canadian spy (Brad Pitt) and a French Resistance fighter (Marion Cotillard) who might be working for the Germans. My review.
