    Mechanical Bull - A few more changes would've helped Transformers

    Examining the roots of Transformers: The Game is deep stuff: It's a video game based on a movie based on a cartoon based on a toy. But unlike most laughably forced movie tie-in games (Da Vinci Code for the PS2, anyone?), there's good sense in cre...

    Xana-don't! - A skately pleasure dome

    There appears to be a conspiracy afoot, one designed to prevent people of a certain age from forgetting one of the worst movie musicals of all time. And believe me, we'd like to forget Xanadu. But someone a secret government agency? a group of espe...

    Cold War Reheated

    Red Dawn: Collector's Edition (MGM) John Milius' 1984 war pic was a mighty bonkers release even back then; not since the 1950s had something come down the pike so rife with Commie paranoia. Russian and Cuban forces invade the U.S. with tanks and c...

    What a View - Prints charming

    Art exhibitions can be frustrating, confusing, and challenging. It's always a struggle to decide whether the art in an exhibition is total crap or you're just too dumb to get it. So every once in a while, it's time to take a break, shelve the ego, an...
