New on Video: New-Wave Werewolves in Howling II

The Howling was not Joe Dante's first film. He'd already co-directed Hollywood Boulevard in 1976 with Allan Arkush, 1978's Piranha by himself, and did uncredited work on Arkush's 1979 Rock 'n' Roll High School. They're all classics in…

The Abyss

We love watching dance inspired by science, but often the science is left to a few lines in the program. Capacitor never makes that mistake. The dance-circus performance group not only consults with scientists, it workshops with them. During the…

Avatar

The money is on the screen in James Cameron's mega-3-D, mondo-CGI, more-than-a-quarter-billion-dollar baby, and the bling is almost blinding. For the first 45 minutes, I'm thinking: Metropolis! Then the 3-D wears off and the long second act kicks in. The…

Avatar: All that glitters isn't gold

The money is on the screen in Avatar, James Cameron's mega-3-D, mondo-CGI, more-than-a-quarter-billion-dollar baby, and, like the Hope Diamond waved in front of your nose, the bling is almost blinding. For the first 45 minutes, I'm thinking: Metropolis! — and…

What Cats Think

When Jaws came out, shark researchers got all shouty, claiming that Steven Spielberg misrepresented the evilness of great whites. The same did not happen among alligator researchers after Alligator came out, because alligators are fucking assholes. So are piranhas —…
