Letters to the Editor

Simple Logic Thank you, Adam, for the floor. As a Middle Eastern Christian, your comments certainly did not represent my views. It may not have been appropriate to shout obscenities at people peacefully demonstrating, but with all due respect, I find your assertion that this demonstrates the perversion of homosexuality to be absurd (“You have […]

A Billy Bob Christmas

Yeah, that’s right, Billy Bob Thornton is playing a dirty Santa who’d rather be naughty than nice. The thing about “Bad Santa” (Dimension Films), however, is that Thornton isn’t as “bad” as people may think. In a recent Hatchet interview, he discussed the making of his latest film, comparing it to his own surprisingly traditional […]

The components of “Mamma Mia!” seem so incompatible – because, really, how is it possible to make a cohesive musical with the unlikely bedfellows of the Greek isles, ’70s disco glitz, questionable paternity and retro pop songs? But while the premise seems like a stretch, “Mamma Mia!” delightfully pulls it off with finesse. The musical, […]

Behind the Scenes: Richard Donner on the making of “Timeline”

Films like “Lethal Weapon,” “Superman” or “Goonies” need no introduction. But while films like these become a part of pop culture, the individuals behind them often fade quickly from the public eye, if they ever get noticed at all. Behind the scenes of the aforementioned films is director Richard Donner. Donner’s latest work, “Timeline,” currently […]

Equipment Food: Liquor chocolates found in the garbage can Music: “Promises” by The Carpenters Everyone left for Thanksgiving, spending astronomical amounts of money to go home for three days. This befuddles my mind because the longer December break is a mere three weeks away. Do the […]
