Vantage Point

It’s almost rather brilliant the way the film betrays and sabotages itself as it comes down the home stretch.

Lost

While I still maintain that this season of Lost, commenced with a lurch, I'm pleased to report that it closed out plain better than ever.

Party of Five: The Complete Third Season

A decade removed from the shelter of their collective heartthrob status, the Salinger family emerges more unlikable, but a lot more interesting.

Speed Racer

Inspired by the mostly beloved late '60s Japanese cartoon, Speed Racer is loud, large, and proudly crass.

The Return of the Popcorn Circus: May 2008

In the first act of this four-part production, Tinsel Town decides to do some unbelievable front loading. Will there be room for independent offerings, or former HBO carnal comedy divas? Who knows? Without a doubt, it's an interesting way to start the season.

Vantage Point

As Vantage Point becomes increasingly busy with personal betrayals and redemptions, the ostensible politics, reductive to begin with, fall by the wayside.

Lost

Sometime between Hurley's car chase and Naomi's resurrection, it occurred to me that I'm never going to get satisfactory answers to Lost's fast-accumulating questions.

Part 5 - Beyond the Envelope

The format forced the issue among cult and commercial products. And TV on DVD highlighted the cream of the creative, forward thinking crop.

Lost

After Season Three's finale, Lost and I have made up now, and it looks like we're working towards a real future together. Finally.

Lost

While blasts of action and humor are at best ancillary to the Lost mythology, they remain indispensable to enjoying the show on a weekly basis.

We Are Marshall (2006)

The film manages a complex range of feelings with a series of hackneyed characters, plot turns, and montages. Lots of montages.

Lost: Season Three Premiere

Squabbles over book clubs, burned muffins, and broken plumbing are not what one would expect from the marauding band of brutes who have captured and brutalized some of the island's most cuddly inhabitants.

Lost

Sometimes -- when I'm buying the Lost-companion novel Bad Twin or navigating the perplexing websites of the Dharma Project's sponsor The Hanso Corporation -- I think if Lost were my boyfriend, we'd have to break up.

Lost / The Amazing Race

Of course, we know that Lost's producers are an international '911' call away, should anything go terribly wrong, but for the most part, the contestants are left to their own devices.

Lost

This is a story about human beings who were, in some way, lost well before they boarded their flight.

In Lost, the remnants of civilization loom ominously.
