    Virtual Quagmire - The Army's realistic first-person shooter bogs down under fire

    No wonder Iraq is a mess. If the battlefield in America's Army: Rise of a Soldier is an accurate picture of what it's like in the Middle East, we should cut and run ASAP. The United States Army's officially licensed shooter puts you smack in the mid...

    The Good Dr. Is Very In - Horton smells a hit

    At last, a means of upstaging actor Jon Gentry -- whose huge presence swipes every scene in every play he's ever appeared in -- has been discovered: Surround him, as has been done in Childsplay's Seussical, with wildly costumed, maniacally energetic ...

    Happy Trees - Art imitating art

    If you want to see how a painter's brain is different from the gray matter of people who don't know which end of a paintbrush to hold, go look at Jennifer Bartlett's retrospective at Bentley Projects. The show, composed of 30 paintings, sculptures...

    Made in China - One in five

    Most Americans don't think much about China. The nation that's home to 20 percent of the people on the planet is a murky place that hovers behind low price tags and bird flu. Few of us think of China as a producer of first-rate contemporary art that ...

    Art Scene - Current shows, exhibitions, and installations

    "Big City" at Phoenix Art Museum: There isn't a single image of the PHX among the cityscapes and urban life scenes drawn from PAM's permanent collection. That's odd, seeing as how we're the nation's fifth or sixth largest metropolis. The omission is...

    Near Perfect - Not a bull's-eye, but it hits the target

    In less than a decade, first-person shooters like Doom and Halo have grown from a niche genre to a cottage industry. Whether it's our love for their immersiveness, competition, or just old-fashioned bloodlust, the popularity of FPS games shows no sig...

    Sweat Along With Russell

    Cinderella Man (Universal) Back in the Great Depression, boxing matches only cost a nickel, and the ring was uphill both ways. That's the central message of this well-made if sappy bio of 1930s boxer Jim Braddock. Ron Howard's direction and a stel...

    Supersize Me - Towering above the competition

    If Hollywood wants to learn from the videogame industry -- which outgrossed the box office last year -- it should pay careful attention to Shadow of the Colossus, a game with the epic scale of a summer blockbuster but the emotional heart of an indie ...

    Homewreckers on DVD

    Mr. & Mrs. Smith (Fox) The pairing of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, both in real life and on celluloid, is so obvious as to be almost cartoonish. So even though both are better actors than they need to be, they perfectly belong in this goofy, expl...

    For Those About to Rock - Guitar Hero cranks rhythm-gaming up to 11
