Review: Contagion

The Traffic of viral outbreak movies
For all the death and panic, this is a relatively quiet film.

Country Strong | Soundtrack

Sony (2011)
This steaming pile of songs is emblematic of the state of mainstream country music — all artifice, no heart, calculated anthems written to formula and meant, like the film itself, to do no more than capitalize on the genre's current success and rob its undiscriminating fans.

Review: Country Strong

Pretty weak
Too-soon-out-of-rehab country star Kelly Canter (a bronzed Gwyneth Paltrow) attempts to twang her way back from a drunken stage dive in Dallas that resulted in a miscarriage.

Review: Iron Man 2

Stark alternatives
Maybe I’m just relieved that it wasn’t in 3-D, or maybe actor Justin Theroux (frequent David Lynch collaborator and co-scripter of Tropic Thunder ) is just a better writer than the law firm of scribes that pasted together the original, but Jon Favreau’s sequel to his creaky adaptation of the rusty Marvel standby Iron Man restores my lack of faith in superheroes.

Miss perfect

The new BBC/WGBH Emma gets a 10

78. Chris Martin

We can’t imagine anything lamer than being a colorless vegetarian musician who pokes a frigid aristocratic phony like Gwyneth Paltrow. Wait — yes we can — the life of anyone who listens to Coldplay’s soulless pedestrian garbage rock.

Review: Two Lovers

Joaquin Phoenix's reported last film not interesting enough or deep enough
In what's bruited to be his last screen appearance, Joaquin Phoenix goes Marlon Brando mumbly.

Easy to love

According to Tip debuts at New Rep; the ART sings Cole Porter
Given the water wings of a viable performance, one-person shows about historical figures tend to sink or swim on the raconteurship of their subjects.

Fools rush in

WGBH remakes A Room with a View
If you think Helena Bonham Carter, Julian Sands, Daniel Day-Lewis, Maggie Smith, Denholm Elliott, and Judi Dench are all hopelessly overrated, then WGBH/ITV has your TV movie.

Brave new world

Germaine Greer’s Shakespeares
Regardless of what’s in her name, biographies of Ms. Hathaway are scarcer than hens’ teeth, and no wonder: we know even less about her than we do about her husband.

Sweet tooth

  Boston Lyric Opera imports The Little Prince , the BSO premieres Yehudi Wyner’s piano concerto, and Renée Fleming
I hope the estate of Leonard Bernstein is collecting royalties for The Little Prince . Rachel Portman’s unremittingly sweet and relentlessly lilting score for this children’s opera based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s famous story borrows heavily from Bernstein’s Candide and West Side Story .
