    Shut Up, Already

    V for Vendetta (Warner Bros.) Illustrator David Lloyd calls this adaptation of the comic he made with writer Alan Moore "very good" -- so why did Moore beg to have his name removed? The intentions are noble, sure; name another big-studio blockbust...

    Trail of Tears - Prey should be called Dances With Tedium

    Native American heroes are a rare commodity in videogames. Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, released a decade ago, is the most prominent example. Now Turok finally has company. The best way to describe Prey is "Doom meets Cherokee mysticism." And while m...

    ABBA Fab - Mamma Mia! makes merry at Fair Park; All About Bette gets eyes rolling

    Mamma Mia!, defying critical drubbings for half a decade, has been called a Twinkie of a musical. But that's an insult to spongy Hostess snack cakes that have stood the test of time. Think of it as more of a theatrical baklava: layers of tissue-thin ...
