Stuff We Love: Vampire Diaries

As a self-proclaimed “Twilight” hater, I saw previews for “The Vampire Diaries” back in 2009 and rolled my eyes at the CW Network's attempt to cash in on the nation's vampire hysteria. I only started watching the series because I thought it would provide the same unintentional laughs “Twilight” did.

The shows, “Once Upon A Time” and “Grimm,” use similar source material in very different ways--and with mixed results.

Review: “What’s Your Number?”

Do boyfriends improve with age? Is it possible to have too many sexual partners? What exactly does it mean to go “full Borat”? Such insightful questions are explored in Hollywood’s latest entry in a string of uninspiring romantic comedies, “What’s Your Number?”

Review: ‘Hanna’

Part action thriller, part character study, Hanna, the latest film by director Joe Wright (best known for "Pride and Prejudice" and "Atonement") breaks genre boundaries and provides a fresh take on the typical Hollywood action film.

Oscar 2011 recap

This year was not a ceremony to remember, but at least it provided a few noteworthy moments, and rewarded -- albeit predictably -- some of the year's best achievements in film.

Djerassi pushes the envelope with ‘Taboos’

"Taboos" is one of the latest plays by Stanford scientist-turned-playwright Carl Djerassi. It explores the consequences of nontraditional birth -- everything from the use of sperm donors to in vitro fertilization -- and how that affects the modern definition of parenthood.

Academy Award Nominations and Predictions

Despite the earlier critical buzz surrounding “Black Swan” and “The Social Network,” which won Best Picture at the Golden Globes, it will be near impossible to stop the momentum of “The King’s Speech,” which recently swept the Producers, Directors and Screen Actors Guild Awards.
