    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...

    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...

    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...

    Not Bad . . . - Make a date

    I usually wind up on the sofa every night, watching those badly dubbed episodes of Sex and the City that are breeding like rabbits all over late-night cable stations. Probably you've seen them, squeezed between carpet-cleaning commercials and sanitiz...

    Erika Rolfsrud - Making 'em laugh

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

    Deep down, we all want money for nothing and chicks for free. Back in 1985, when Dire Straits first revealed this eternal truth, it seemed that any goofball with a DayGlo headband could pour himself into package-hugging spandex and become a rock s...

    Your Government at Work

    Punishment Park (New Yorker Video) This 1971 movie from director Peter Watkins could have been made yesterday, which is no doubt why it finally sees video release long after accruing cult status. Born of the filmmaker's outrage over the Kent State...

    Spin City - Old Urbanism

    There isn't a single image of Phoenix in the "Big City: Cityscapes and Urban Life" exhibition at Phoenix Art Museum. Which is odd, seeing as how there are only a handful of cities in the country bigger than this one. Don't we rate at least one tiny w...

    A Lost Soul - A gorgeous but frustrating rehash

    Putting together a sequel to a hit videogame is tricky business. Play it safe and give people more of the same, and it ends up feeling stale. But try to innovate too much, and you dilute what made the game great to begin with. Soul Calibur III so...

    King of Comedy - Bavarian cream of the crop

    You don't have to know who the mad King Ludwig II is (he ruled Bavaria in the mid-19th century) to enjoy the naughty comedy of Paul Rudnick's remarkably funny Valhalla. You don't even need to know who Rudnick is (for my money, one of the most talente...
