Rewatch Every Episode of The Sopranos with the Talking Sopranos Podcast, Hosted by Michael Imperioli & Steve Schirripa

More than twenty years later, nearly all of us place the beginning of our ongoing televisual "golden age" at the br...

"America is not a country. It's just a business": Layers of Venality in Killing Them Softly (2012)

I didn't know what to expect when I went to see Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly, but after watching eight moviegoers leave the theater in the midst of the film, I had fun imagining why people hated it.  Was it because most of the movie took place in rainy slum areas of New Orleans, or was it perhaps due to Dominik's cheerful curse-filled immersion in the tawdry milieu of scummy lowlifes? Greasy junkie Russell (Ben Mendelsohn) has such skanky-looking hair, one can practically smell h...

The 10 Best Romantic Comedies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) In some ways, the past decade was a bit of a desert when it comes to romantic comedies. The rom-com’s mainstream heyday was over with the onset of our current millennium, which brought about dreck like Gigli and The Hottie and the Nottie . But with the dearth of quality mainstream rom-coms came the birth of the indie and the subversive rom-com – and that’s when things got interesting.  So let’s talk about the ten best romantic c...
