Under-21 action

Not every college kid is 21 or older. Here’s what to do when drinking (legally) isn’t an option.


Features

Alex Ewald
Going out on weekends is a rare union of public humiliation and pride for me, the perpetually underage, now-20-year-old student. Being a mature adult is a big deal in college, and Campus Corner is full of them, every Thursday through Sunday.

Contagion

Catch it.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Director Steven Soderbergh's "Contagion" is a super-smart speculative thriller that isn't quite what you'd expect. The trailer kind of telegraphs as much by killing off Gwyneth Paltrow.

Carnage

Can’t we all just get along? Roman Polanski’s amusing comedy of manners, ‘Carnage,’ answers in the negative.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Given the tumultuous and tragic nature of director/child rapist Roman Polanski’s life, it’s no surprise he rarely touches comedy. Until the new “Carnage,” only 1967’s “The Fearless Vampire Killers” and 1986’s flop “Pirates” gunned for laughs.

Haywire

The spy who loved me ... and kicked my ass.


Action

Rod Lott
Can Steven Soderbergh do a martial arts-fueled action thriller? That was rhetorical in a bear-crap way; the guy can do anything. Best known for Traffic and the Ocean's Eleven franchise, he's a director par excellence, even when the story goes to snuff in his experimental larks, like casting porn star Sasha Grey as the lead in 2009’s no-budget drama The Girlfriend Experience.

The Viral Factor

Warning: This Asian actioner can be infectious.


Action

Rod Lott
Directed by Dante Lam (The Stool Pigeon), the action-thriller The Viral Factor revolves around the world’s last two surviving samples of the smallpox virus, one of which is an arm’s length away from being used to develop a biological weapon to unleash of five of the world’s seven continents.
