Enlightened: The Complete First Season

But is it any good? Dern tootin’!


Television series

Rod Lott
Earlier this week, HBO announced the cancellation of Enlightened, which just completed its second season. It’s a damn shame, because in her four-decade career as an actress, Laura Dern never has been better.

The Sorcerer and the White Snake

Jet Li slithers into a fairy tale with fights.


Action

Rod Lott
Although front-and-center on the Blu-ray box and the film’s trailers, Expendables team member Jet Li takes more of a supporting role in The Sorcerer and the White Snake. This shouldn’t be a surprise; about to turn 50, the guy isn’t as spry as he used to be. What is a surprise is how kid-friendly the Hong Kong film is. With little exception, it’s practically made for them.
