    Working Classy - A well-maid play

    On paper, Richard Dresser's Augusta sounds a whole lot more dreary than it turns out to be. Thanks to some fine acting and smooth direction, this comedy about the travails of the lower-income working class not only entertains, but reveals subtleties ...

    Hell on Wheels - Ghost Rider will drive you up the wall

    There's one similarity between Ghost Rider and most videogame movie tie-ins: Get too close to either, and your ass will probably get burnt. Though it stars goofy Nic Cage and Sam Elliott sound-alikes, Ghost Rider claims only to be an offshoot of t...

    Diamonds in the Rough

    Blood Diamond (Warner Bros.) Ed Zwick's Blood Diamond, about the civil war over diamonds that devastated Sierra Leone in the late 1990s, plays like a guilt-ridden Jerry Bruckheimer movie. It's little more than action-adventure pulp drenched in som...

    Closer to Perfect - We'd love it even more if we could hear it

    To get an idea of why I was so deeply frustrated by Black Theatre Troupe's excellent production of Fabulation or the Re-Education of Undine, try this: Put a DVD of your favorite movie on, turn the volume way up, then go out onto your front porch and ...

    Losing Momentum - Pictures aren't so moving

    No Replay for Wii Play - There's not much besides an extra controller to these minigames

    Unlike its Wii Sports predecessor, only two players can play Wii Play at a time -- barely living up to the definition of "We." And playing Wii Play alone is a hollow feeling. Strangely, Wii Play acts as a "Wiimote 101" tutorial instead of an inspired...
