Pamela Adlon Wants “Better Things” for Us

Years ago, Pamela Adlon was the voice of Bobby Hill on TV's King of the Hill, but since then she's been working on a different kind of voice.

“Best in Show” Director Brings “Mascots” to Life

Watson Reviews “The Adventures of TinTin”

“The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn” is a master class in visual extravagance which should be attended by any filmmaker intending to create a spectacle; they may learn something.

I Love Movies, But I Hate Yours: Captain America, the First Avenger
