Music

Joe Wertz
They call him The Condor. Mat Hoffman has pushed farther and further to ride harder and fly higher, and he's logged more time in the sky than any other athlete. Hoffman didn't invent BMX; he pioneered...

Pity the fool who doesn't love the 'A-Team' remake, replete with explosions and dead extras


Music

Doug Bentin
You don't exactly have to hold a doctorate in advanced maturity to enjoy "The A-Team." There's a big difference in what entertains the kid and what entertains the kid still living in the adult, and th...

Displaying cultural obsession with bugs, 'Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo' is more curious than creepy


Music

Mike Robertson
Over the last 25 to 30 years, we in the United States have become increasingly aware and fascinated with Japanese pop culture. Anime, manga, Pokémon, Dragonballs, Airbenders and all manner of odd, wha...

Amateur musicians vie for a title in 'They Came to Play,' a documentary that explores competition


Music

Doug Bentin
They Came to Play is a sly title. The movie isn't about sports, as is implied. Rather, it's about people with a competitive spirit that, while not duplicating that of the big-time athlete, suggests ...

Diaz and Cruise trade toothy smiles in 'Knight and Day,' a boring chase movie that's short on smirk
