Pop Alyssa Grimley
Amanda Earhart’s sound is hard to categorize. Think today’s pop, but
with fewer thump-thump club beats and synthesizers, traded for more
undoctored vocals and guitar. Throw in a dash of country twang and a
sprinkling of piano and violin, and that’s a start.
Comedy Rod Lott
Hate not Identity Thief,

plot. Accept that it's a big-budget screwball comedy and you may find
yourself — gasp! — enjoying it.
Film buffs run hot-and-cold on Terrence Malick, and his latest may leave them frigid.

Malick either inspires or bores. There isn’t much middle ground when it
comes to assessing the famously reclusive filmmaker who has made only
six features since his 1973 debut, Badlands.
