Review: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD

Review: Trishna

Tess of the D'Urbervilles set in present-day India
If nothing else, Michael Winterbottom's updating of Tess of the D'Urbervilles to present-day India proves that Thomas Hardy will depress you no matter what the setting.

Review: Lollipop Chainsaw

Mixed messages
At least this high-kicking, somersaulting, zombie-fighting, magical school girl protagonist is of legal ogling age!

ShortTake: Moonrise Kingdom

Review: Moonrise Kingdom

Off the Record: Air - Le Voyage

Air | Le Voyage Dans La Lune

Astralwerks (2012)

Country Strong | Soundtrack
