    Embarrassment of Riches

    Tennessee Williams Film Collection (Warner Bros.) All that's missing from this boxed set -- six movies, one doc, eight discs -- is a jar of sweat; even Williams is here, in a 1973 documentary. Then there's Brando, Beatty, Newman, Taylor, Burton, G...

    Hero With a Thousand Faces - The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion earns our highest score.

    The biggest innovation videogaming saw in the past decade or so was the invention of the "sandbox": Programmers create settings and consequences, but give you, the user, free license to do with them what you want. Grand Theft Auto is certainly the...

    To Each Theron

    Aeon Flux (Paramount) Many things about this surreal sci-fi flick defy explanation, but nothing more so than the mystery of how it got made in the first place. On paper, it's an archetypal setup for a bomb: a mostly forgotten cartoon, notable for ...

    Wild Pitch - MLB 2K6 throws more chin music than strikes.

    Boys are oiling their mitts, men have started playing hooky, and Dick Cheney just one-hopped it like a pussy. Yes, baseball season is in full swing, and our dip-juice cup runneth over. Normally, this is cause for heavy titillation -- perhaps a s...

    Lovesick Blues - Cookin' with talent, two musicals turn up the heat under heartache

    Funny how two shows about feeling bad turn out to be the feel-good musicals of the year so far. They're all about heartache and despair and what it's like when you're so lonesome you could cry. And by doggies, if you don't walk out of the things at t...

    Back in 1969, The Who sang plaudits to Tommy, the Helen Keller of ur-gaming. Deaf, dumb and blind, the miraculous Tommy "plays by sense of smell," letting lie fallow his senses of sight and sound until he snaps out of temporary sensual oblivion and l...

    Mob Hit Misses - The Godfather game isn't personal. It's strictly business.

    Marlon Brando sleeps with the fishes. But before the legendary actor died, he worked one last job. Curiously, it was for a videogame. In The Godfather: The Game, Brando attempts to relive his Oscar-winning role as Don Vito Corleone. From the raspy ...

    Capsule Reviews - Our critics weigh in on local theater

    The Crucible Arthur Miller's most-produced play feels more relevant than ever. Sure, we get the old references to the McCarthy witch hunts in the parable, but now the drama resounds with echoes of "the war on terrorism" and even the horrors of A...

    Cowboy Up - We just can't quit this countrified Karaoke.

    With scrappy warblers like Kellie Pickler and Bucky Covington trying to out-twang each other on American Idol, country music is hotter than a corn dog at a county fair. One reason is that almost anybody can sing it. Even mopes who argue that NASCA...
